What's interesting is that there was a rumor that Fox News wasn't tweeting b/c they were unhappy with the way Carlson was being treated by the twitter protesters, well now it's hurting their pocketbook and Carlson doesn't seem to care????

These two explanations do not add up. Although, to be fair, the media never got a direct statement by Fox News as to why their twitter account hasn't been tweeting.

As more advertisers bail on Tucker Carlson’s Fox News Channel primetime programs in the wake of last Thursday’s monologue remarks about immigrants making America “dirtier,” Carlson punched back on Monday night’s edition of Tucker Carlson TOnight.

Tucker Carlson: “We Are Not Intimidated” By Ad Boycott Over “Dirtier” Immigration Segment


Along with their associated Twitter accounts like Fox News Poll, Fox News Politics, and Fox Business, the company seems to have put a Twitter boycott in place, but haven't released any explanation as to why or put out any demands for change that would lead to their return.

Fox News' refusal to use the social media platform coincides with the doxing of host Tucker Carlson's address on it and a large group of Antifa protesters showing up at Carlson's home in early November. This is the suspected reason for the conservative-leaning cable news network choosing to avoid Twitter, but they continue to not confirm for certain.

Fox News' silent protest on Twitter hits one full month


So how are they more upset over the address being posted but not their advertisers leaving???? This does not add up.

“We're not intimidated,” he said. “We plan to try to say what’s true until the last day. And the truth is unregulated mass immigration has badly hurt this country's natural landscape.”

This guy is so white supremacist that other white supremacists tell him to dial it the **** down.

Anyone who imagined that Corporate America would stand up for freedom surely has been disabused of this notion by now.

Seeing as he's not a white supremacist. The joke seems to just fall flat in the end there.

Dude, you're the most intellectually inconsistent person here. Literally nothing you say makes a lick of sense when you compare it with anything else you've ever said.

Why is "Corporate America" obligated to pay for someone else's platform to spew filth? Answer that one, as non-cryptically as possible.

November 2018 Ratings: Fox News Remains at the Top of the Cable Heap in Total Day Viewers

https://www.adweek.com/tvnewser/november-2018-ratings-fox-news-remains-at-the-top-of-the-basic-cable-heap-in-total-viewers/386020

Fox News Channel continued its extraordinary streak as the most-watched network on basic cable for 29 months running. According to Nielsen data, FNC drew an average of 1.48 million viewers across the 24-hour day in November 2018, which is not only more than any other network on basic cable, but it’s also +3 percent vs. what it drew in November 2017.


Fox News finished No. 2 during prime time in November, behind only ESPN, a network that is thriving right now with college football and NFL programming. FNC posted +6 percent growth vs. November 2017 (2.44 million vs. 2.30 million).

October 2018 Ratings: Fox News Channel Averaged More Total Viewers Than CNN and MSNBC Combined

https://www.adweek.com/tvnewser/october-2018-ratings-fox-news-channel-averaged-more-viewers-than-cnn-and-msnbc-combined/382598

When we write cable news ratings stories, we try to highlight losses and issues when they exist. But to be frank, October 2018 was just a really good month for Fox News Channel from a ratings perspective.

FNC was +25 percent in total prime time viewers, +16 percent in total day viewers, +13 percent in the prime time demo, and +3 percent in the total day demo vs. October 2017. The network actually averaged more viewers across the 24-hour day in Oct. 2018 than it did in Oct. 2016, which was the month before a presidential election.
Fox News was the most-watched network in cable news for the 202nd consecutive month. It also beat CNN and MSNBC combined in total viewers in prime time, and across the 24-hour day.

Can anyone explain Carlson’s comments? Yes, what the US did to Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras decades ago has over time resulted in migration outward. Some of it requires US protection. That seems undeniable. What is his problem? How does their migration make the US dirtier?. They will shake the dust off their clothes and no doubt make our country better, just as the dirty Jews, Italians, and Irish did. What possessed a pretty sharp guy to make such dumb comments?

Do you understand the context in which he was speaking about. He was talking about the environmental aspect of migration, he talked about the study in Arizona that said for illegal immigrate that crosses the border they leave 6 pounds of trash in the desert on their journey, they destroy animal habitats and hurt endangered brushes and trees along their migration path. Which makes America dirtier.

At least the opposition to him should be truthful in which he clams the migration makes the country dirtier is in respect to the environment and is not a judgment on the people themselves.

Good.

He's content enough with the loss of the advertisers and the advertisers are happy not to be seen as overtly associating themselves with him. Sounds like a win-win situation to me.

I agree. I've read a lot of Hawkeye's posts and there is nothing in them to suggest he is a 'socialist'. A capitalist? - perhaps. A republican? - definitely. A far right trumpster? - maybe.

Didn't the boycott against O'Reilly work to get rid of the sleazy a-hole? And didn't a boycott force Laura Ingraham to take a 'vacation'?

Advertising boycotts DO WORK. Just depends on how much Faux News values advertising revenue vs a multi-million dollar anchor who spews racist crap all the time. Hate to break it to the trump base - but you aren't in the majority.

The MAJORITY of Americans are NOT racist - THANK GOD!

Really?

From Sat re our super doper expensive but poorly functioning medical system that is bankrupting the nation that no one can/will (who can know which is the problem?) fix:
I dont talk a lot about it here because it is a hopeless idea, our courts would never allow it, and we are not even talking about fixing our completely abusive and barely functional so-called justice system......but I say that things are so broken that we need to nationalize damn near everything, make a completely different system, and then sell it off after twenty years. Those who got nationalized split what ever is the sell price based upon a point system.....which they will likely whine is 10% of what they should have gotten, but **** them....they are part of the problem and they get what they get.

Urban Renewal....rip the old out block by block and start over......this is where we are.
