‘Even Fox News is afraid of the Fox News audience’: Watchdog explains why Jeanine Pirro has not been fired

Published

on

Fox News is unable to hold their hosts accountable — even as advertisers leave, because they are scared of their audience, the head of the watchdog group Media Matters for America (MMFA) explained on Saturday.

The comments came after the network apparently benched former Judge Jeanine Pirro one week after the network had to condemn her Islamophobic smear of Rep. Ihan Omar (D-MN).

CNN chief media correspondent Brian Stelter reported “the circumstances suggest that Jeanine Pirro has been suspended” but “definitely hasn’t been fired.”

MMFA president Angelo Carusone said, “Pirro is not an outlier at Fox News. The bigotry on her program is perfectly in sync with the the rest of Fox’s programming and present everywhere else on the network.”

Carusone then issued a dire analysis of the current situation at the network.

“Here’s what should really scare people: Fox News *can’t* hold their hosts accountable even if they wanted to,” Carusone explained. “Their audience would turn on them. Fast. So they play these games.”

“Basically even Fox News is afraid of the Fox News audience these days,” he added.

Published

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has said the US is "looking at" banning Chinese social media apps, including TikTok, over allegations Beijing is using them to spy on users.

India has already barred the wildly popular TikTok app over national security and privacy concerns while other countries are reportedly mulling similar measures.

Asked on Monday by Fox News's Laura Ingraham if the US should consider blocking the apps -- "especially Tik Tok" -- the country's top diplomat said the Trump administration was "taking this very seriously; we are certainly looking at it."

Pompeo said the US had been working for a "long time" on the "problems" of Chinese technology in infrastructure and was "making real progress."

Susan Collins had a 67% approval rating when Trump first took office — it’s collapsed to just 36% today

Published

Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, trails leading Democratic challenger Sara Gideon by four points in her re-election race as her support continues to sag.

Gideon, the speaker of the Maine House of Representatives, leads Collins 46-42 in a new Public Policy Polling survey, which sampled more than 1,000 Maine voters and has a margin of error of 3.1%.

Gideon held a similar four-point lead in a PPP poll in March and edged out Collins by a single point in a Colby College poll from February, meaning this is the third straight poll to show Collins behind. She led the race by 16 points when it was first polled in June 2019.
