The media was in the tank for Hillary and against Trump full throttle from the get go. FOX did have some discussion hosts who admitted that they supported Trump, and many who were clearly anti-Trump. They all had both sides of the discussion with various guests on their shows.
The primary news anchor, Bret Baier went for the facts in the news portion of his broadcast at the beginning and had varied opinions from his discussion panels toward the end. Again all sides were presented. It was the only network that did not swoon seemingly 100% over Hillary.
Somehow, despite the MSM overwhelmingly shilling for Hillary, according to Obama FOX single handedly brought her down. Really? Can we say "WIKILEAKS" and a fed up American electorate? People who actually work for a living were disgusted by the condescension of the elitist and leftists with their tactics focusing on divisive and sometimes phony social issues that had nothing to do with the quality of life for the working and middle classes.
It has been said that the Democrats are now the party of the elites and the GOP is becoming the party of the rest of America. Hillary won the left leaning west and east coasts, Trump largely got the rest, which is the backbone of America.
Thank the founding fathers for instituting the electoral college. Otherwise the middle and working classes, the real producers, would be dominated by ivory towered academia and monied globalists who are Hell bent on driving their own agendas. The "authorities" seemingly regard the lumpenproletariat as being fit only to serve them and their intellectually "superior" motives.
Then we have the useful idiots who, for various misguided reasons, willfully go along with and serve their masters. They are the paid rioters/protesters/demonstrators who cheapen legitimate dissent and free speech. They do not argue issues. They take to the streets and spew mindless venom and destroy property. Some truly believe in what they are doing. Others were paid and here is but one of a plethora of links on that subject.
However, the intended effect of these riots, er protests, apparently backfired during the campaign. Trump won the election. Far be it from the left to concede anything. Now they are rioting, (tsk tsk excuse me I keep using that word) I should say protesting the results of the election.
Should the leftist/elitists players, backed by the bought and paid for MSM, continue to employ their serfs to enact spurious rage, not only will they tank in the eyes of the average American citizen, but they will actually harm legitimate dissent which will be drowned out by or wrongfully associated with out right anarchy. Maybe that is the intent.
The following two articles touch upon the subject.
Obama tells ‘Rolling Stone’ Dems lost partly because ‘Fox News is in every bar and restaurant’ by
In a post-election interview with “Rolling Stone,” President Obama blamed his party’s failure to reach out to blue-collar workers on the proliferation of 24-hour cable news — specifically Fox News Channel....
Labor, which has always turned out en masse for the Democratic Party turned this year to Donald Trump and his message to bring jobs back to the United States. Obama, however, discounted this reasoning and looked to Fox News as the culprit for the Democratic Party’s loss at the polls. Obama told “Rolling Stone’s” Jann Wenner:
In this election, [white blue collar workers] turned out in huge numbers for Trump. And I think that part of it has to do with our inability, our failure, to reach those voters effectively. Part of it is Fox News in every bar and restaurant in big chunks of the country, but part of it is also Democrats not working at a grassroots level, being in there, showing up, making arguments. That part of the critique of the Democratic Party is accurate. We spend a lot of time focused on international policy and national policy and less time being on the ground. And when we’re on the ground, we do well.
This isn’t the first time Obama has taken pot-shots at the cable news giant. He brought up that theme in the past after suffering prior losses. The president also found blame in social media and the reportage of “fake news” stories. More here

Mainstream news is a dream pretending to be real.
In 1927, Carl Jung wrote: “…the dream is the theater where the dreamer is at once scene, actor, prompter, stage manager, author, audience, and critic.”
But in the case of the news, the dream must come from an external place. It must come from The Anchor.
There must be His Voice and it must narrate (invent, fabricate) the hallucination.
In Paddy Chayefsky’s 1976 film, Network, the unhinged news anchor Howard Beale tells his audience: “We deal in illusions, man. None of it is true! But you people sit there day after day, night after night, all ages, colors, creeds. We’re all you know. You’re beginning to believe the illusions we’re spinning here. You’re beginning to think that the tube is reality and that your own lives are unreal. You do whatever the tube tells you….You even think like the tube. This is mass madness. You maniacs. In God’s name, you people are the real thing. We are the illusion…”
The news is a fabricated continuum.
The staff and crew who assemble the nightly network news understand this well. They enable smooth transitions from one story to another, backing up the anchor whose voice-rhythms intone surety. They switch from the anchor in-studio to field reporters and back; they do everything they can to eliminate technical mistakes and, above all, guard against their nemesis:
Seconds of nothing.
This is also what a hypnotist avoids; anything that would cut the trance.
The elite anchor, the voice that narrates reality, is the modern version of the underworld ferryman Charon, carrying a billion souls across the River Styx every night.
But now: SOMETHING HAS CHANGED.
YOU HAVE CHANGED.
You have introduced dead air into the nightly transmissions.
Are you absolutely nuts?!
If the whole show falls and crumbles, don’t you see what’ll happen?
Decentralization will happen.
Other voices will supplant the dream-narrator.
Chaos will be unleashed.
—Well, actually, decentralization is occurring right now; and the world isn’t collapsing because of it.
Something else is going on.
You’re going on.
Independent news is going on. All over the place.
Elite news is Humpty Dumpty after he fell off the wall. He’s not coming back. He’s in pieces.
Humpty was the channel for official information. He was the relay man for piped fraud. He was the government and corporate spokesman posing as the unimpeachable source of truth.
YOU were the primary reason for his fall. You deserted Humpty. You were the first wave. And now…
“All the king’s horses and all the king’s men” are trying put Humpty together again by attacking independent news as “fake.” That’s their desperate strategy. It’s not working. It’s having an opposite effect. Tell people they shouldn’t pay attention to something and should avoid it like the plague—and they’re going to search out that very thing and look into it. They’re the second wave.
And the third and the fourth.
Years ago, when I first wrote about Dr. Barbara Starfield’s stunning review on medically caused death in America (JAMA, July 26, 2000), when I reported her findings—225,000 deaths a year, 2.25 million deaths per decade—I was pushing for major media coverage. But soon I realized that was never going to happen, and it was unnecessary. Something else was going on. Independent news was building. It was taking over.
And as a result, Humpty was sitting less securely on his wall.
Humpty was committed to spreading hallucinations and he wasn’t going to stop, and this was his psychosis.
He didn’t stop. And he fell.
Independent news outlets are having double effects: they’re revealing shocking scandals and crimes; and without even trying, they’re showing that elite news is ignoring and burying that deep truth. This second effect is highly corrosive to faith in elite news.
For example, consider Russ Tice, long-time intelligence-agency veteran, who led the way in bringing to light the deeper operations of the Surveillance State. Now censored by mainstream news, Tice told Boiling Frog’s Sibel Edmonds and Peter Collins, on June 19, 2013:
RUSS TICE: “Okay. They [the NSA] went after [spied on] — and I know this because I had my hands literally on the paperwork for these sort of things — they went after [spied on] high-ranking military officers; they went after members of Congress, both Senate and the House, especially on the intelligence committees and on the armed services committees and some of the — and judicial. But they went after other ones, too. They went after lawyers and law firms. All kinds of–heaps of lawyers and law firms. They went after judges. One of the judges [Alioto] is now sitting on the Supreme Court that I had his wiretap information in my hand. Two are former FISA court judges. They went after State Department officials. They went after people in the executive service that were part of the White House–their own people. They went after antiwar groups. They went after U.S. international–U.S. companies that that do international business, you know, business around the world. They went after U.S. banking firms and financial firms that do international business. They went after NGOs that–like the Red Cross, people like that that go overseas and do humanitarian work. They went after a few antiwar civil rights groups. So, you know, don’t tell me that there’s no abuse, because I’ve had this stuff in my hand and looked at it. And in some cases, I literally was involved in the technology that was going after this stuff. And you know, when I said to [former MSNBC show host Keith] Olbermann, I said, my particular thing is high tech and you know, what’s going on is the other thing, which is the dragnet. The dragnet is what Mark Klein is talking about, the terrestrial dragnet. Well my specialty is outer space. I deal with satellites, and everything that goes in and out of space. I did my spying via space. So that’s how I found out about this.
PETER COLLINS: Now Russ, the targeting of the people that you just mentioned, top military leaders, members of Congress, intelligence community leaders and the–oh, I’m sorry, it was intelligence committees, let me correct that–not intelligence community, and then executive branch appointees. This creates the basis, and the potential for massive blackmail.
RUSS TICE: Absolutely! And remember we talked about that before, that I was worried that the intelligence community now has sway over what is going on. Now here’s the big one. I haven’t given you any names. This was is summer of 2004. One of the papers that I held in my hand was to wiretap a bunch of numbers associated with, with a 40-something-year-old wannabe senator from Illinois. You wouldn’t happen to know where that guy lives right now, would you? It’s a big white house in Washington, DC. That’s who they went after. And that’s the president of the United States now.”
After reading Tice’s comments, a person would assume, if he didn’t know better, that this story had to explode in the mainstream press. It just had to.
But it didn’t.
And because it didn’t, Humpty went into a serious wobble on his wall. Humpty was looking absurd.
One egregious scandal after another, and Humpty fell. And shattered to pieces.
This revolution isn’t stopping.
