I really don't believe that FOX is going to change their format.  The far right is what makes them money and they will see to it that it continues.



Mr Murdoch has some political ideals, but his main aim is money.

He has no shame about this.

If Fox - which I see occasionally and still suspect to be a spoof - needs to change to keep making money it certainly will.

I mean, the Murdoch press in Britain extolls the nobility of patriotism, and the national identity, in pursuit of Brexit.

Mr. Murdoch has changed nationality for financial reasons.

The Fox demographic.. 65 year olds.. is dying out..  Plus though Fox has been the leader in far-right bullshit for some 2 decades they are now up against Internet powerhouses like Breitbart, Infowars, Stormfront.  These have raised the bar on right-wing media staples .. deceit, innuendo and pure lie to such a level with which I don't believe Fox will be able to compete.

Fox will need someone like Spicer.. once he's out of the asylum.. someone with the gift of channeling bullshit in its raw form to lead them into the next frontier..

Liberal media tends to struggle and I doubt the Murdochs will risk a cash cow on the idea of failed idea.

If Fox loses their conservative tilt, they'll disappear.  They were about the only effective alternative to the massive brainwashing machine that is the lib media.

From a conservative viewpoint, there's some good that can come of this.  I almost split a gut laughing today when I heard some SeeBS moron call O'Reilly a "firebrand".  In fact he was more like the kindly grandfather sitting in the corner.  I hope the lead role ends up with Carlson, Gutfeld, or Bolling.  Unlike O'Reilly with his calm attitude, they are the brass knuckles in your
feminazi-islamofascist-illegal alien-transgender face type.

It's already done. The five moves to nine. Carlson moves to eight and Eric Bolling gets his own show at five.

I like that line up.  I might even watch it occasionally.

All true, but the far right loves FOX just the way it is.  Kelly is gone, O'Reilly is gone.  Sexual harassment allegations all over the place and the network is still #1.  No changes will be made unless or until the ratings go down.

Word™

They have a very successful format and would be foolish to change. That said, Fiddler's points about their demographics and competition from the intarwebs has to be a concern. If they tilt too far back to center they'll get lost in the noise and too far to the right, they'll lose even more credibility.

I don't see them changing much other than some house cleaning. Even if their own viewers deny certain behaviors, advertisers care, and this is all about the moneys.
