Fox News Gasping for Air After Tucker Carlson’s Departure

Fox News Gasping for Air after Tucker Carlson's Departure

(ConcernedPatriot.com) – Since the departure of Tucker Carlson, the network’s 8 p.m. hour has seen a drop in viewers from three million to 1.65 million on average; Fox & Friends co-host Brian Kilmeade previously hosted the hour, which will now be filled by Fox News personality Lawrence Jones.

The Washington Post claims:

“The disparity was most stark on Wednesday, when Kilmeade’s 8 p.m. hour received an average of 1.3 million total viewers, compared with the 3 million Carlson received a week earlier — a decline of 56 percent.

The network experienced a 45 percent viewership decline last week without Carlson in the host’s chair.

When Fox announced Carlson’s forced departure on April 24, the network said that “rotating Fox News personalities” would fill in until a permanent 8 p.m. host is selected.

The network did something similar with the 7 p.m. hour after it was vacated by anchor Martha MacCallum and ultimately settled on Jesse Watters as the permanent host.

“Jesse Watters Primetime” has been a major success for Fox News, and Watters, who also co-hosts “The Five,” is considered a possible candidate for Carlson’s old slot.”

The network has also noticed a dramatic fall in the 25-54 demographic outside of the 8 p.m. time slot in the 6 p.m., 7 p.m., and 9 p.m. time slots.

The corporation stated that the network will keep providing cable news coverage, making it a rating powerhouse in recent years.

According to the firm, Fox News Channel has been the most viewed cable news network overall for more than 21 years, drawing in more Democrats, Independents, and Republicans than either CNN or MSNBC.

The statement continued, “Fox News’ powerhouse team of journalists, analysts, and opinion hosts are trusted more by viewers than any other news source, drawing more than 50% of the cable news viewing audience with the top 12 shows in cable news.”

Even though major talent like Bill O’Reilly left the network and Roger Ailes was implicated in a sexual harassment incident, the network still maintains a significant advantage over MSNBC and CNN. Other networks, like Newsmax, have noticed an increase in viewers.

“On the day Carlson was fired, Newsmax’s 8 p.m. offering, hosted by former Fox News host Eric Bolling, drew a competitive 531,000 total viewers, only about 200,000 behind CNN’s 8 p.m. hour,” said the Washington Post.

According to Newsweek, if Tucker Carlson were to start his own independent internet show, he might lose up to a third of the Fox News audience.

16 percent of Americans said they would be “significantly likely” to watch a show by Carlson online. According to a survey of 1,500 U.S. eligible voters conducted on April 30 for Newsweek by Redfield & Wilton Strategies, this is the case.

In a statement made public soon after he was fired, Tucker Carlson himself suggested starting a new news website.

“True things win out. Where can you find Americans who still speak the truth? There aren’t many locations remaining, but the ones are sufficient.”

“There is hope as long as you can hear the words. Soon,” he said, “see you.”

Biden’s Bribery Scandal: DOJ Alerted in 2018 But Ignored It

Biden's Bribery Scandal: DOJ Alerted in 2018 But Ignored It

(ConcernedPatriot.com) – According to a former federal prosecutor, President Joe Biden was the target of bribery accusations sent to the Justice Department in 2018 by a whistleblower.

The 2018 whistleblower is a particular case from the charges made public on Wednesday by James Comer, the chair of the House Oversight Committee and a Republican from Kentucky.

Comer subpoenaed the FBI for data in response to a whistleblower’s claims alleging a criminal plot involving Joe Biden, who was vice president at the time.

According to the New York Post, Joe Biden’s involvement on the board of Burisma, a Ukrainian energy business, is the subject of the second accusation of bribery.

“Bud Cummins, a former federal prosecutor, first reported the bribery allegations to then-New York US Attorney Geoff Berman on Oct. 4, 2018, in an email claiming he had evidence that Joe Biden had “exercised influence to protect” his son’s Ukrainian employer “in exchange for payments to Hunter Biden, Devon Archer, and Joe Biden.”

In the email obtained by John Solomon’s Just The News, Cummins said that Ukraine’s then-Prosecutor General Yuriy Lutsenko wanted to travel to the United States to meet Berman and could produce two “John Doe” witnesses to corroborate his claims about the Bidens.”

Despite Cummins’ assertions, Berman remained silent.

“I really can’t think of any good reason why the DOJ wouldn’t take up an offer like that. I felt like it was being blocked,” Cummins said on Sunday to Just the News.

“Investigating the person who made the allegation rather than the allegation doesn’t make much sense.”

Cummins asserts that Berman chose not to reply and instead allowed a grand jury subpoena to Apple to gather information from his iPhone in what seemed to be “retaliation.”

It is “perverse,” according to Cummins, “that you report an allegation of a pretty serious crime and they don’t investigate [it], but they were investigating you.”

According to Just the News, congressional investigators are putting out a chronology to demonstrate that from 2016 to 2020, evidence raising questions about the Biden family business was provided to federal law enforcement organizations.

When Comer and Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) claimed a paper existed indicating specifics of an agreement involving an exchange of money for policy choices between then-President Biden and a foreign national, one of those warning signs came to light on Wednesday.

According to Breitbart News, Joe Biden and his family members’ offshore business interests have been implicated in components of a suspected bribery conspiracy for years.

Giving “anything of value” to an official to “influence” them into carrying out any “official act” is prohibited by law. There is proof that the older Biden benefited from his family’s gains. Thus the fact that the “thing of value” may have gone to his friends and family rather than to him personally does not exonerate him.

The Constitution clearly mentions two crimes as grounds for impeachment: bribery and treason.

Following a precedent set by Democrats in their second impeachment trial of President Donald Trump in 2021, Biden might be impeached retrospectively.
