Millions of Fox News fans are in shock. The network is being pushed to betray its strongest supporters — and an anti-Trump politician is pulling the strings.
Former Speaker of the House Paul Ryan (R-WI), who currently sits on the board of Fox Corporation, is the culprit. He has reportedly said behind-the-scenes that “Fox should decisively break from the president.”
This comes as Fox Corp. CEO Lachlan Murdoch is holding “strategy conversations with Fox executives and anchors about how Fox News should prepare for life after Trump,” according to Vanity Fair.
It appears that the network is spooked by Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi’s impeachment inquiry against President Trump. Ryan clearly has them all worried, as if the president is actually going somewhere.
But this is nothing more than wishful thinking on Ryan’s part. Pelosi’s plan has already backfired; the call between him and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky amounted to nothing.
