Trump Eyes New Media Platform That Will Clobber Fox News

Gage Skidmore Fickr

Sources close to President Trump are shedding some light on his plans to create a new digital media platform that would directly compete with Conservative-friendly Fox News. With an extensive database of emails and cell phone numbers, Trump already has a huge head start in the creation of his new platform.

Fox News added fuel to the fire when they prematurely called Arizona for Joe Biden, effectively enraging President Trump. A source close to Trump said, “he plans to wreck Fox. No doubt about it.”

Axios reports:

Trump’s digital offering would likely charge a monthly fee to MAGA fans. Many are Fox News viewers, and he’d aim to replace the network — and the $5.99-a-month Fox Nation streaming service, which has an 85% conversion rate from free trials to paid subscribers — as their top destination.

Trump hasincreasingly complained that Fox News interviews more Democrats than it used to. He has needled the network by promoting other conservative outlets, including One America News and Newsmax.

“Fox has changed a lot,” Trump said during the most recent interview he has given anywhere, with “Fox & Friends” on Election Day. “Somebody said: What’s the biggest difference between this and four years ago? And I say Fox.”

“I’m not complaining — I’m just telling people,” Trump added. “It’s one of the biggest differences this season compared to last.”

Many have speculated that President Trump may decide to build a new cable news channel, however that process requires more time, energy, and money. A digital media platform to stream online would be quicker and cheaper to get off the ground.

Fox Corp. CEO Lachlan Murdoch welcomes the competition saying Fox News “thrives” on it. Will you subscribe to Trump’s new platform?

    1. Daddy Murdoch knew where his cash cow was but his boyz & wives got greedy & wanted it both ways. I 🙏🏼 The RIGHT TRUTHSPEAKERS POOL THEIR $ & form their own outlet🙏🏼❤️🇺🇸🙏🏼❤️🕊🙏🏼❤️⚖️⚖️⚖️⚖️⚖️

    2. Sure then Joe paid him off for not investigating Hillary Obama and BIDEN for human trafficking Oscar El Blue youtube check it out

    1. I knew that fox had changed before the President even said it! I sent a message to fox saying ,I know longer watch fox on the weekend! It’s the same as CNN

  1. It needs to be free. It needs to have massive viewer numbers. They can have 2 tiers with a basic ad-supported & a pay version without ads & maybe additional content. He could use the Newsmax platform which is already on TV, as well.

  2. Fox added more fuel to the fire when they cut McEnany off during her interview because they didn’t like her facts. FOX will soon have to eat their words on “no proof of fraud”

    1. When Sandra Smith cut Newt off when he was explaining how Soro’s money was corrupting the campaign. I went ballistic and knew it was over fo FOX!

  3. Dam right I will subscribe to Trump’s new digital news platform. The conservative side has to have its say and not be trampled by all the other news networks or media platforms. Fox was my outlet, but the went to the dark side.

  4. I will join no matter what the cost, If President trump is running it-it will the hottest station in America….screw Fox News and all the bullshit that goes with It…Im pretty sure that Tucker, Hannity, Laura and a bunch of others will join….

  5. Hoooooray!! Get rid of Wallace, Cavuto, Baier, Smith, MacCallum, Broad Smith and ANY others who knew about and PERMITTED the voter fraud.

  6. The Murdoch sons have brought this on themselves. They are going to lose their conservative audience which makes up most of their viewers. Does Fox think that they can survive on leftist viewers? Why would they go to Fox when they love to get their propaganda from CNN and MSNBC? Right now Tucker, Hannity and Laura Ingram are propping up the network, but how long will Fox allow them to remain? It is sad to see the vision of Fox from years ago slowly die.

    1. It’s not a question of how long will Fox allow them to remain, but rather how long will they stay on a sinking ship. So long Murdoch boys!

    2. Fox will be just another button to push in the liberal cable jungle. They were unique and could garner a captive audience, no more

  7. Yes I will leave Fox News which I’ve watched all day long for years. Not no more. Fox is not fair and balanced as you say. Chris Wallace and Cavuto are the worst.

      1. Do you mean “In mmyyyy mind…” Juan? I cannot understand ho the rest of the Five can stand him. No matter what, he always finds fault with Trump.

  8. Why not just join & support Newsmax TV. It already has a growing population and system to tell it like it is. Or OAN.

  9. Good to hear. I will follow wherever President Trump leads. If he wants to go to new network and leave Fox News in his ashes, I am behind him 100%.
    FOX NEWS IS DEAD to me…cut all ties and remove them from all my devices , my family and friends or now free of anything pertaining to the Communist Fox News Network.

  10. It’s a mystery why media owners, journalists and filthy rich actors by definition are rabid socialists.

  11. I’m ready to ditch Fox other than Tucker and Laura, so would welcome a real conservative place to go that tells the truth.

  12. I go on YouTube and watch a lot of news one reports and NewsMax too. Now if the President was to do something on his own would it will be expensive. Now suggestion from me would get with those networks that are trusted by conservatives and ask of they can input a section for the White House report, or the president. Most countries have a section and a time allocated for their president to talk to the country. It’s only an opinion.

  13. Lachlan Murdoch! What a joke!!! Read this Liberal Aussie’s response to Pres. Trump possibly creating a competitive network. Instead of seeking to partner with the President, Lack Luster Lachlan issues a trite meaningless metaphor saying Fox News ‘thrives’ on it. The only thing that Fox News thrives on now is becoming the same boring, slanted and sold out outlet that CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, NBC, PBS et al are.

  15. My comments are being censored! I used no 4-letter words. But i did heavily criticize Lachlan Murdoch and the current sad state of affairs at Fox News.
    Here we go.

  16. I hope that he does. I’m in. I would love to see him start his own channel and hire all the good guys away from Fox. THAT would be fun to watch even if I did have to pay for it. I think that I could swing 5 or 6 dollars a month for that to happen. At least that way we could finally have a balanced news and comment channel. I love Greg Gutfield and Hannity, and Tucker and a few others, but for the most part I wouldn’t miss a whole bunch of them. They are leaning so far Left these days that they are sinking Fox. Let them. Go for it Mr. President. If you can keep the monthly fees low, I will join for sure.

    1. It would be best if the president would invest in an existing platform . He could come up with the money to lure the likes of Tucker and Sean to join. That would boost the ratings of whatever platform to entice sponsors and get more conservative talent to want to join. A membership fee of $25/year would be cheap enough to get more subscribers interested until enough sponsors could join to pay for more conservative talent and put Fox out of business.

    2. I can just about afford cable so I can watch Newsmax and OAN. If the president were to start a pricy pay channel I couldn’t afford it. A lot of seniors watched Fox and are now switching to OAN or Newsmax if they can get them on their packages and can afford the changes. .

  17. You must be JOKING to say FOX is conservative friendly!!! They sold out on us months ago. Time for Hannity, Tucker, Laura, Shannon, Judge Janene, Water and Gutfeld to fid a better home.

    1. You can bet Fox has their stars tied down to some pretty airtight contracts. If they were al willing to get together and walk out at once in protest that might move the needle and wake Fox up. However, damage is done

  18. Is this too late with too little?
    President Trump needs to start a mainstream news media station that anyone can turn on at 6PM and get honest news – and now find out how they have lost their country with the help of the current 100% left, mainstream media.
    Unfortunately, with the Democrats taking over – whether America likes it or not – an honest, conservative news outlet will no doubt not receive an FCC license.

  19. I will definitely subscribe to Trump’s new media and loose Fox. Fox is packed with liberals like Juan Williams and Chris dipshit Wallace. Go Trump, Go!~!~!!!!!!!!! Semper Fi, Trumnp!!!!!!!

  20. As this unfolds we all see new targets for a new platform of information and it is not FOX anything. Wonder how the boys will like their ratings in the toilet with CNN?

    The only hope they have is that the good ones like Hannity do not leave them as well. We do like a few who are honest reporters. But we also know the Boys are Libs. For the most part I am finished with Fox but that was true before their back stabbing showed the nation they are NOT Conservative anything!

    Good luck with your ratings the next go round BOYS!

  21. Fox is not quite the enemy, though. Why doesn’t he try to trash the NYT and CNN, instead? Hannity and Ingraham don’t deserve his wrath. This seems a bit misguided.

  22. I have been watching Fox News since the early days of Hannity and Combs. I still like Sean, Tucker, Jesse, and Greg Gutfeld, but have decided to stop watching Fox altogether do to the network stabbing all of its core watchers in the back. When I can’t tell the difference between Fox News and CNN, there is no point in watching either.

  23. Not only would I subscribe, I’d have FOX removed from my cable lineup. Currently it’s “free” on it, but I’d dump them anyway. ESPECIALLY if Tucker moved over with Trump.

  24. No one has mentioned that lying cheating disgusting Donna Brazil…..I lump Shannon Breen with Wallae, Williams, Caputz… Tucker, Hannity, Laura, Judge Jeanine (they wouldn’t show her program last Saturday night), Jessie, Greg, Mrk and Steve Hilton. Bret Hume, Baier, Martha and the rest are a better fit for CNN.

  25. Like so many, I also have seen the change in Fox. I have switched to Newsmax and would welcome a Strong Conservative site, Fully Support President Trump.

    1. I dumped fox which I watched for over 20 years , no more. They are leaning liberal for news so for me its newsmax and oan

  26. Don’t make it subscription. Make it free to all. That is how you take down the leftist rags. If you want to do a subscription one too fine but don’t leave out the folks who are struggling with bills.

  27. With out a doubt I am onboard for his new news program!!! Sign me up! Fox has turned to trash except for Hannity, and tucker, judge, levin, Melissa, and Harris!!! They will go with the new trump???????

  28. I will gladly subscribe. I used to watch Fox all day and into the evening. I would change the channel when Juan, Harf/Karl(?), Tarlof, was on. I never watched Wallace. When Fox hired Donna Brazil after CNN fired her I really noticed the change.
    Now I only watch Tucker and some of Judge Jeanine..
    Please, President Trump, start your program and you will have us all.

  29. Fox Corp. CEO Lachlan Murdoch welcomes the competition saying Fox News “thrives” on it.’

    It will NOT be a ‘competition’!! FAUX, like the rest of the MSM/Corp Media FAKE NEWS, will have NO ONE WATCHING!! lolol

  30. Count me in Mr. President. Lachlan Murdock has screwed up Fox News so bad it will never recover. Not even Suzanne Scott can pull Fox News out of the liberal downward spiral Lachlan has put them in.

  31. What we need is our own country with Trump as President for life. Texas should secede and all of us conservatives could move there.

    1. I just Posted that yesterday.
      The Trump clan needs to start their own news channel. They now have the experience.
      I now watch Newsmax.
      I still like some in there – Fox but I hate watching them anymore!

  32. I love Donald Trump, but I am not going to pay to watch him on TV!
    OAN is a great alternative, and I don’t have to pay an extra fee

  33. I’d be happy to have a honest news agency we could count on to tell the truth. It would be successful beyond expectations.

  34. I like what Robert Steele says though ,where are the good honest conservative billionaires to run this project for people ? , it is not the pres’s job , he has to have clear separation from 4th estate . unlike canada that have state sponsored news !!!, and OhBumAh had set up in USA ,funding cnn . At present we know we cam trust alex jones ,stephen crowder , X22 , black conservative patriot ..[ long list I watch ],+ Epochtimes , AON , newsmax etc ,to be financially unbiased .

  35. I’ve had Fox News on life support for some time now and I finally pulled the plug…they’re dead to me. I’d gladly pay $5.99 a month for Trump T.V.!

  36. I totally agree that oan and newsmax are much better than the “new and screwed” fox.However,oan is not available on Dish network yet. have stayed with direct only because of oan.Direct is on a race to the bottom since AT&T took over

  37. I’m sure if President Trump is serious about starting up a network he may just have a few hosts wanting to jump ship ie: Sean Hannity, Tucker Carlson, Laura Ingraham, Judge Jeanine, possibly Greg Guttfeld. I’d like to see Trish Reagan, Lou Dobbs and even Bill O’Reilly back

  38. I don’t like fair and balanced. Why? Because I don’t want to hear Juan Williams, Chris Wallace and other liberal nut cases. I only want a Conservative staff and guests. But I do want them to be honest in their answers. If some Liberal actually does something right give them credit for it. If a Conservative gets way off base reign them in. Juan demeans virtually all conservatives. He and Wallace and Smith as well as a number of others bore me or anger me.
