Fox News anchor Bret Baier deleted a tweet this week that proved the backlash against the cable news network has exploded.
Baier tweeted: “Join me + @marthamaccallum tonight 8pmET on @FoxNews.”
Check out a screenshot of the deleted tweet below:
That’s it. That was all Baier tweeted.
There is nothing controversial about it. He didn’t try to defend his disgraced network’s indefensible decision to call Arizona early, a state that a week later is still too close to call.
All Baier did was ask people to tune in to watch Fox News — but that revealed just how big of a problem the network has after going after President Donald Trump and the horrific job they did with election night coverage.
As you can see in the screenshot, the tweet racked up a whopping 22,200 replies.
Here are a few examples of what was going on in Baier’s replies…
Uh…no way! @newsmax @SchmittNYC ALL THE WAY!
That’s a big negative
nope – done with Fox!
BOYCOTT FOX NEWS! WATCH OAN, NEWSMAX
You have lost this loyal viewer! Trying to influence an outcome that is clearly not legitimate!
How about no! Done with Fox!!
I’d rather get another vasectomy without anesthesia sir
Done with fox! You sold out on us! Good luck!
Sorry Bret. Fox has jumped the shark. We won’t forget.
Yikes the ratio on this. May want to pass that along to Murdoch’s.
And now Baier has scurried away and deleted the tweet.
The deletion is proof that Fox News is in real trouble and even their top anchors are seeing firsthand just how mad people are at the network.
The backlash is so fierce and overwhelming that Baier was forced to delete it and act like nothing ever happened.
Earlier this week, it was also reported that President Trump is planning to launch his own digital media company to “crush” Fox News.
President Donald Trump is considering launching his own online media company in response to Fox News’ decision to abandon the President’s base.
“He plans to wreck Fox. No doubt about it,” a source close to the President allegedly told Axios.
Check out what the Daily Wire reported:
The president has extensive email and cell phone lists from his 2016 and 2020 campaigns that he can use to help launch a media venture. Trump may also use rallies late in the year, ostensibly for building support for his election legal fight with Biden, to bash Fox News to his base. Many of the members of Trump’s target audience for a media venture are likely Fox viewers.
Trump is planning to sidestep the boundaries of launching a cable network and moving straight to an online streaming/subscription service.
“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% conversation rate from free trials to paid subscribers — as their top destination,” Axios reports.
