Fox News has been having some trouble lately. That comes with the territory when you fire two major people in the company. First was Roger Ailes who was fired amidst allegations. And now, they have really messed up after firing their superstar reporter Bill O’Reilly. When will they learn that they cannot continue on like this. Pretty soon, maybe, as they have just received the news that they were worried about.
The channels ratings have plummeted since firing Bill O’Reilly. This is not a surprise as he was by far the biggest name on the network. Many conservatives around the country have sworn to stop watching the channel completely. Bill O’Reilly was a firebrand on Fox News and they are going to feel the consequences of their horrid actions.
Even though Fox News was extremely popular before, the firings and uncertainty have really put them in a bad place. They took a gamble with this and they are going to lose a tremendous amount of money.
This latest move was not a gamble however, this was just plain stupid. Fox News has been scrambling around trying to figure out what to do for months now. They handled it so poorly that even their own supporters were surprised. The firing of O’Reilly was more than shocking. It was just plain idiotic.
The ratings have gone so far down that they do not even know how to react. Most of the audience had been watching for years, but even they are leaving. Many of them will go to more up to date places for information, such as on the internet.
Fox News is in the dumps for the instant. They need to get it figured out soon before the whole thing collapses on them. Do you think Fox News can come back from this?
