Former FOX News host Eric Bolling still has friends at the network, and according to him, the folks at the FOX News channel are very concerned about the drop in ratings after the election.
Bolling commented on this during a meeting for Turning Point USA, a group for young conservatives.
Eric Bolling Says Former Colleagues at Fox News Are ‘Very, Very Nervous’ About Post-Election Ratings
Bolling, now a Sinclair TV host, spoke to a throng of young Republicans at Turning Point USA’s annual Student Action Summit on Monday.
After his speech at the convention, Bolling was presented with a rather bonkers question from TPUSA student activist Andrew Escude, about why top-rated Fox News hosts aren’t moving over to Newsmax TV or other more right-wing networks.
“Obviously you worked for Fox News for a while, and you went and did your own thing, a lot of people don’t realize this, but Fox News is getting more and more liberal and it’s disgusting,” Escude said. “The father of the Murdoch family died and his son took over and his son is far-left, not to mention George Soros has his hand in the cookie jar and it needs to be stopped.”…
“Fox lost about 40% of their audience. 40 percent. That’s a big number,” Bolling continued, a statement that sparked roaring applause from the audience of young conservatives.
“I have friends still there that say they are very, very nervous about it, they’re sucking wind on it and they don’t know how to turn it around,” Bolling said.
If you think Eric Bolling is exaggerating, take a look at the cable ratings from last Friday below.
That would have been unthinkable a year ago.
It’s difficult to see how FOX News could even repair this. Their fans feel completely betrayed.
