There are big problems over at the Fox News Network. On Saturday, the chickens came home to roost as their ratings crashed after upset Trump supporters felt betrayed by the network. That’s when anchor Sandra Smith got blasted badly by patriots after she was caught on a hot mic. You don’t want to miss this.

Fox News Election Night coverage scored huge numbers. That may have been their last hurrah. 

“The presidential race did not have a declared winner, but Fox News Channel easily took the TV ratings crown as all three major cable news networks attracted more viewers than the broadcast networks, according to final Nielsen ratings data for election night,” USA Today reports. 

“Fox’s election night coverage, anchored by Bret Baier and Martha MacCallum, won 14.1 million viewers during prime time Tuesday (8-11 p.m. EST), far ahead of second-place CNN (9.4 million) and MSNBC (7.6 million),” they add.

That was the night Fox News died. 

Trump supporters fled the network for calling the state of Arizona for Joe Biden way too early. In fact, Arizona still has not been universally decided. On Saturday, Fox News’ ratings crashed.

“CNN beat the TV competition in total viewers Saturday with 4.2 million (as well as leading for adults 25-54 and younger viewers 18-34), according to Nielsen. MSNBC was second with 3 million, Fox News Channel third with 1.73 million,” USA Today added. 

That brings us to anchor Sandra Smith who was caught on a hot mic over the weekend becoming incensed when her guests suggested Fox News had no authority to call the election for Biden.

“Remember, just because CNN or even Fox News says who’s president doesn’t make them president,” panelist Cleta Mitchell said to Fox host Trace Gallagher. “So I think everybody wants to know this was done properly and legally and that we can trust the results. And I think we have to look at every one of these concerns.”

“Yeah,” Gallagher said, “I think that’s a very good point there.”

Sandra Smith gasped in disbelief. Her face was contorted in an ugly sneer.

“What?!” Smith replied on a hot mic. “What is happening? Trace, we’ve called it!”

Americans blasted Fox News and Sandra Smith on social media. 

“@SandraSmithFox thinks she calls US elections. She doesn’t,” tweeted Raheem Kassam, who is the editor of the National Pulse.

“Wow @SandraSmithFox how do you explain this? @FoxNews is going down & so will you & the rest of the Biden ‘operatives’ at your network! We, the people, 70 million of us put you where you are! We’ll take you down & make your ratings drop dramatically!” tweeted “Stop the Steal.”

“It was disgusting how they acted when they thought Trump might not win. I knew Fox was not going to be watchable after the on camera shutting up Newt Gingrich when he said Soros. Lost me right then and there. Newt had the right and they took it away unfairly,” tweeted “Mstangrene.”

“Yes we thought fox was the one station to go to. Not now and this shows us why. Newsmax!!!” tweeted Jarrod Norris.

“Hey @SandraSmithFox, you know that Fox ‘calling’ the election has the exact same weight as my dog calling the election, right?” tweeted Kevin W. Kuykendall.

“She doesn’t have the power or authority to call anything nor does sir news outlet these people are so prideful arrogant and vain they think they are above our government,” tweeted Twitter user “Michael.”

This election is not over — not by a long shot. 

“Hey guys, this thing is not only not over; it is scary for Biden,” American Thinker reports. “I mean really scary, and most of all, the media know it. Thus, the rush to get everyone in line with the narrative that a 78-year-old, early-dementia former V.P., who could not draw a crowd larger than a dozen, just beat [Trump] in a fair election.”

“Process that for a moment,” they add. “Start with Pennsylvania. Biden, as of this writing, is at 290 electoral votes. Pennsylvania is 20. I read the Justice Alito opinion, and it is pretty clear that he wants the after election night at 8:00 P.M. votes separated for a reason. Biden is going to lose at the Supreme Court, and they know it. Four justices already said the Pennsylvania Supreme Court cannot adjust voting rules. A new arrival, Justice Barrett, says she is there to apply the rules in the Constitution. OK, wanna bet she does?”

Remove the after 8:00 P.M. ballots, and Biden loses Pennsylvania. And with massive alleged fraud in several key states like Nevada, Arizona, Michigan, and Wisconsin, this election is far from over.

The media and their Democrats allies now include the Fox News Network. Newsmax TV is now the third most downloaded app on the Apple Store. All Americans want is the truth. If Joe Biden won this election fair and square, we will go on.

However, the plethora of reports from swing states indicates we have a huge problem, and until those states tallies can be certified as fraud-free, Americans will turn to those platforms that are delivering the real news and flee those who tell us they have the power to call this election.
