    I didn't leave FOX, Fox left me.

      Absolutely. 50% of Fox is strongly left leaning. I support debate and opinion but when they unfairly try to characterise our president as someone who led a violent insurrection, I am out. I listened to his speech and thought it no different than any of his other speeches. Every movement will have extremists on the wings. President Trump cannot be held responsible for their violent actions.

      President Trump has been a phenomenal president, probably the best ever. It is sad that so many in our country did not appreciate him and his tremendous defense of and advocacy for our democracy. It is sad that Biden supporters have flushed away a wonderful America in favor of a communist society. Our children and grandchildren have been robbed.

    I am finding Myself changing the Chanel to OAN when Chris Wallace, Neal Cavuto, Dana Perino and Juan Williams come on they belong on CNN the two women that filibuster, on the couch. Jessica Tarlov and Marie Hart should be on CNN.
    My favorite show is Tucker. He is fearless and straight forward. Fox is loosing its appeal.
    C Span and OAN are becoming my favorite stations. Fox was burned in the lower left hand corner of my screen chuckling but It is fading quickly.
    I think fox needs to revamp their programming, just saying.

    Fox News is moving toward liberal left.
    With Paul Ryan on the board, the sons are moving network toward CNN ideology.
    Hope the son's liberal friends are more accepting of them now.
    Great line up with Donna Brazil and Juan.

    Disappointed in election coverage and the debate commission more than biased.
    We watch Tucker. Otherwise, moving towards OAN and Newsmax.
    Always tune in for Rush.

    Likewise. Never thought we would leave Fox.

      Donna Brazile , I like how she presents herself, better than CNN ..
      ...Juan Williams , I think is a loser and offers nothing to the 5.....for sure not worth 3 Million in his new contract...

    I truly dislike Chris Wallace. So sorry that Fox News is becoming another CNN. Hope Tucker and some others switch to a more conservative channel soon.

    I note that FOX News Sunday and it's lefty host Chris Wallace do not appear in the Top 15 of the list - after that 'effort' his during last night's debate debacle, no wonder why... CNN calling.

      C. Wallace has changed in my view , lost his touch .....and I think hes more Liberal than what I like ....

    Aug 14, 2020 18:28 GMT

    Enough of Chris Wallace & Neil Cavuto .They should move to one of the more
    liberal networks with the rest of their kind. I have been forced to move
    to NewsMax more often to get some relief from the obvious dislike of the
    President that is rearing its ugly head on Fox. Shame on you, for I have been
    a Fox viewer from the beginning

    FOX used to be my fav. No longer!! Just another fake news media organization. I watch OAN, NEWSMAX and America's Voice.

    'Chris Wallace smile has deserted him, and the frown grows more pronounced daily'

    Poor reviews his debate performance, manifested hits to his credibility (any hint that he's impartial having been shredded), appears to be taking a toll: pouty demeanor continues / that lip curls any lower, he's gonna swallow his chin.

    My take is he has a really hard time when he can't control the discussion... as most others on FOX don't parrot his obvert liberal bias, he's become Mitt Romney - a fish out of liberal water. Would not be surprised if he's removed from FOX News Sunday, the not too distant future. He is compromised...neutrality nigh non-existent - unacceptable a supposed 'hard news' person / moderator' same, compared 'editorial journalists / commentary'.

    I like Tucker best, Hannity and Ingram are good but cut off guest constantly with the obvious statements screwing up the interview. Charles Payne is awesome as is Lou Dobbs. Maria Bartiromo,Greg Gutfeld,Jesse Watters,Brian Kilmeade,Judge Jeanine Pirro,Pete Hegseth all do good interviews. There are good fox contributors, my favorites, Dan Bongino, Trey Gowdy, Mark levin, Newt Gingrich

      I would add Senator Kennedy from Louisiana to the list as a contributor. Smart, witty, and knowledgeable.

      Tucker Carlson is the only reason I now tune to Fox. Donna Brazile was just too over the line for me.
