The FOX News coverage of election night and the following day was not a hit with fans.
The network enjoyed massive ratings, but fans made themselves heard on social media.
Their early call of Arizona for Biden made people angry, but that was just one example.

Used to be a big fan. I’m embarrassed for you and your team. Not watching Fox anymore. Except Tucker and Laura. OAN.

So disappointed in the coverage. Expected more from Fox. I have been watching election night coverage for 30 years and this was unacceptable. Not sure if I’ll ever tune in again. But where do I do? I have no other news media to watch.

Disappointment doesn’t even begin to describe the dishonesty & disrespect you have displayed. I’m afraid this is goodbye. I cannot in good conscience feed into Fox News.

Yah no thanks. Done with FoxNews. Election coverage last night was not up to the standards we expect. So we will now change the channel and watch other news shows.

Done with the whole network. Murdoch's kids ruined the network.

Sorry Martha been watching you since you were on in the morning. You lost me last night. Watching the Hallmark Channel, their Christmas shows give a better reality than FOX.

Sorry to say I wouldn't call it a win. We've been loyal @FoxNews viewers since its inception. We work from home and always have one TV tuned to Fox.
The rush to call blue wins and delay to call red wins causes us to lose trust in Fox.
Maybe it's the fault of the higher-ups?

Done with Fox News. Just cancelled fox nation as well. Fair and balanced on that Network is dead.

You sold out your country and your audience. Think those viewers were there to watch you participate in the rigging of an election?

It looks like some conservatves will be turning to OANN and Newsmax.
