Fox has taken another blow to their credibility among ordinary Americans. This week Tucker Carlson – by far their most energetic, popular, and unorthodox voice – joined the rest of the media cartels running cover for Dominion software, the designers of the faulty voting systems behind most of the confusion this election.
None of the media cartels took a harder hit this election than Fox News. The bastion of right-wing news and commentary turned so hard against the President on election night Rush Limbaugh felt compelled to warn them against turning against their base. Even before the election, Tucker Carlson Tonight was essentially keeping the network afloat with viewers.
Only one other commentator draws the kind of water Tucker does. Conservative stalwart Sean Hannity, who remains a staunch defender of the President’s legitimate efforts to secure the election and ensure the outcome that reflects the will of the American people, is now the lone loyalist on the network.
The landscape of media is changing, that is clear. Limbaugh and Hannity are both aging, and Rush knows his clock is ticking, but they remain terrific examples of the kind of voices that have kept the right-wing alive in America: prudence, work ethic, and loyalty.
With emergent media voices like the Epoch Times and OANN grabbing more attention, it remains to be seen if they will apply the lessons of the dying media giants. Will they remain loyal to the people who put them where they are, and continue to be voices for the silent majority? Or will they seek to indoctrinate their viewership with a narrative handed down from a disconnected elite?
Whatever happens in these coming weeks, Donald Trump has demonstrated the most important lesson for upcoming right-wing media: the people are fed up being spoon-fed lies and told to be quiet by a group of wannabe aristocrats who spend their time drawing utopian pictures in the air. The American people crave a voice for themselves: they are still forgotten men and women, beaten down by an incestuous Axis of Evil made up of the Ivory Tower, Silicon Valley, and unelected bureaucrats and scolds in government.
