I find a lot to agree with and disagree with news/opinion outlets... it's the American way.
The 'new kids on the block' as I'll refer them (to include a Newsmax, One America News, America's Voice/others same), offer alternatives to try fill a void created when FOX News veered hard left, and sank.
That everyone has an opinion a given. Likewise, an agenda same, ultimately (Newsmax even has a program, same name.) Good and bad can be found across the spectrum, but case any person/entity, a 'name' is only worthwhile as its incorruptibility.
Just as important for me as integrity is delivery - ideally, how agenda-LESS is the content ('just the facts ma'am', nod Sgt. Friday), and at minimum, how tolerable the talking head is. Though 'news' is the thing even beyond 'opinion' some offer a 'presentation' easier on the senses than their peers.
To wit, as a former FOX viewer there came a point that I could no longer watch Hannity due constant interruptions of guests; the show's content found valuable was overridden by that host's constantly poor etiquette. A newer venue America's Voice and 'War Room' with host Steve Bannon suffers the same problem: unlistenable/unwatchable (unless the sound is turned down, which defeats the intended purpose of communication.)
'War Room's oft worthy content is ruined via a $hoestring operation, appears (technical difficulties, people's voices/face dropping off camera, example.) Moreso, the host's poor style/technique fast becomes grating on the ears. A common example: Bannon, talking to Rudy Giuliani: 'May-May-May-May-May- Mayor'... 'hold on hold on hold on hold on'...
is like listening to Porky Pig on terminal rewind - 'Th-th-th-that's all folks!' Alas, it never is/never ends.
Know from watching Bannon that he can do better 'when he wants to' - it just isn't often enough. Message to Steve... let your guests TALK - STOP CONSTANTLY INTERRUPTING. People generally tune in for a multitude of voices/guest takes - and not just one voice ad nauseam, ad infinitum. Other America's Voice hosts don't operate this way, so conclude it is that particular host's issue; such a shame... it doesn't have to be that way.

I have been a FOX News viewer for about two decades, but I am getting less interested. I am especially tired of Sean Hannity and his on going scandal about "Russia, Russia", "Ukraine, Ukraine" and other related issues. I was very pleased with the information that was coming forward about the DOJ, FBI, State Department and the people of the Deep State. I was believing that there was a real story there. Since they have not been able to deliver anything, it appears that "There Isn't Any There There". It appears that they are playing with the viewers to keep ratings. The fact is that they are losing viewers. And will lose me as well unless they come clean. They need to admit it to with the American People that there is no story and stop it, or they are going to lose viewers, especially from Mr. Hannity's hour program. And for heavens sakes stop the Hunter Biden scandal now, before it also becomes another lie. Stop the TALK, or show some ACTION. Otherwise FOX and Mr. Hannity are going to lose their credibility even more than they have already. Since Trump is gone, and Barr and Durham have left, is appears that the issue is dead. Don't make things worse. Just go back to being a Conservative Program and stop creating stories or they will soon become another CNN or MSNBC.
