President Donald Trump has suggested that CNN turn more conservative in order to compete with Fox News by accusing it of “pushing the Democrats and the Democrat agenda.”
“Wow! Fox News is really pushing the Democrats and the Democrat agenda. Gets worse every single day. So many Dems interviewed with only softball questions, then Republican counterparts get creamed. RINO Karl Rove is unwatchable, very negative, and on all the time – Has a big record of losing!,” On Sunday, Trump posted on Truth Social.
“Not an easy place to be as a Republican, especially with all of the ‘pervert’ purchased ads. If ‘low ratings’ CNN ever went Conservative, they would be an absolute gold mine, and I would help them to do so!”
Christ Licht’s appointment as chairman and CEO has given CNN new management.
When Licht became president, he made a pledge to the CNN network to uphold objectivity in reporting.
Recent changes at CNN resulted in the departures of “Reliable Sources” host Brian Stelter and White House correspondent John Harwood.
Many have seen these departures as Licht’s initial steps toward implementing his pledge to be less politically biased.
Many others have also noticed that the friendship between Trump and Fox has cooled.
According to individuals close to Trump, The New York Times reported in late July that the former president had complained that Fox had recently ignored him in addition to running stories that were “too negative.”
Despite Trump’s support for CNN’s transition to conservative reporting, he has been criticizing Fox for months.
“@foxandfriends just really botched my poll numbers, no doubt on purpose. That show has been terrible – gone to the ‘dark side.’ They quickly quote the big Turning Point Poll victory of almost 60 points over the number two Republican, and then hammer me with outliers,” Trump wrote on Truth Social in July.
