According to a report from Vanity Fair Former Speaker of The House Paul Ryan is trying to push Fox News to “break with Trump”.
In recent months, Rupert’s oldest son has been holding strategy conversations with Fox executives and anchors about how Fox News should prepare for life after Trump. Among the powerful voices advising Lachlan that Fox should decisively break with the president is former House speaker Paul Ryan, who joined the Fox board in March. “Paul is embarrassed about Trump and now he has the power to do something about it,” an executive who’s spoken with Ryan told me. (Ryan did not return a call seeking comment.) But a person more sympathetic to Trump has told Lachlan that Fox should remain loyal to Trump’s supporters, even if the network has to break from the man. “We need to represent our viewers,” the source said. “Fox is about defending our viewers from the people who hate them. That’s where our power comes from. It’s not about Trump.”
What a coward Paul Ryan is. He knows he has no chance of winning any battle against President Trump out in the open so he is trying to do things behind the scenes.
Don’t buy into the narrative that Fox is strictly “Pro-Trump”. Has anyone ever watched the actual reporters on Fox? Two of them (Chris Wallace and Shepard Smith) have become pretty much anti-Trump. The idea that Fox shills for Trump is complete nonsense. Are they right-leaning? Yes. Does that mean they will lie on his behalf? Nope. What Paul Ryan really wants is Fox News to be another Fake News outlet. Paul Ryan wants Fox News to echo the talking points of the Mainstream Press and disconnect Trump Supporters from a good source of information.
