Harris Faulkner began Monday’s broadcast of “Fox News Tonight” by sharing accounts of patriotism and Christian faith, as well as a recent restaurant experience.
“The Lord has determined I am a woman,” she began during the opening segment. “And my pronouns are U.S.A. Our nation’s soul is at stake. And we really only have a couple of choices, three, really: We can be bad at protecting the greatest nation on the Earth. We can be average at protecting the greatest nation on the Earth. Or we can be elite at protecting the greatest nation on Earth. We know who we are. And we know whose we are.”
She continued by stating that she was expelled from a restaurant for prayer before her meal.
“For those of us who believe, we must be bold in our faith right now. When you gather in public spaces, pray thankfully over your food – even when the server gives you the stink eye or tells the manager that your peaceful grace is triggering them,” she said.
“Had it happen to me. I’ve been asked to leave a restaurant for openly bowing my head in prayer hands. In America. It’s all good. They don’t deserve my money anyway,” Faulkner added.
“My faith determines my values. And I hope you’re living by your values and what brings you joy and peace and love,” she concluded.
Faulkner is the most recent in a succession of rotating hosts in a time slot that formerly belonged to network star Tucker Carlson until late April, when Fox removed him from the air. And subsequently, viewership numbers have plummeted, prompting Fox management to contemplate additional lineup adjustments and show cancellations.
The most recent victim is Steve Hilton, whose Sunday evening program at 9 p.m. has also been canceled.
According to Mediate, he is departing to devote himself full-time to what the network describes as a “new California non-partisan policy organization launching next week.” Hilton intends to continue contributing to the network.
Mediaite also noted:
Fox announced a new lineup beginning this weekend in response to the departures. The network will replace The Big Saturday and Sunday Show (talk about streamlining) with The Big Weekend Show, which will broadcast at 7 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays. A new program titled Fox News Saturday Night will premiere at 10 p.m. on Saturday evenings.
Mediaite also learned that weekday programming will undergo one change: Fox & Friends. The network’s 4 a.m. to 6 a.m. program will be reduced to one hour beginning at 5 a.m. Congratulations to Carly Shimkus and Todd Piro on the much-needed additional hour of slumber.

Dan Bongino also recently left the network, leaving a Saturday evening slot open, but it wasn’t because Fox took him off the air, he says. CONTINUE READING…
