Tea Partiers are starting to engage in boycotts of Fox News. Strange. This is at PoHuff:
“Particularly after the election, Fox keeps turning to the left,” said Stan Hjerlied, 75, of Fort Collins, Colo., and a participant in the boycott. He pointed to an interview Fox News CEO Roger Ailes gave after the election in which he said that the Republican Party and Fox News need to modernize, especially around immigration. “So we are really losing our only conservative network.” [...]
Donnie Farner, 48, works as a chimney sweep in central Pennsylvania and runs a website, Proud Conservative, which sells right-leaning memorabilia like “Liberals Are Friggin Idiots” T-shirts and bumper stickers which read “Ten Out of Ten Terrorists Recommend Voting Democrat.”
He said staying away from Fox News, and in particular its website, is harder than he realized.
“It is honestly because Fox is everywhere. If you are on Twitter, you click on a link, chances are it might go through Mediaite or Drudge, but it ends up at Fox because Fox originated the story.”
He quickly clicks away, instead relying on Glenn Beck’s website The Blaze to stay informed.
The goofballs. And the “One America network” is supposedly coming this summer (yet another challenge to Fox News from its right).
President Obama has driven the Republican Party’s members into a state of confusion. He has their number. The right has fractured. Expect a third party run in 2016.
