Former Fox News star Eric Bolling pulled back the curtain on what’s really going on at Fox News during an appearance at Turning Point USA’s Student Action Summit.
Bolling claimed that staffers at the network are deeply worried by the network’s recent massive drop in ratings and the rise of pro-Trump competitors like Newsmax and OAN.
As The Daily Wire reports:
“Here’s what happened guys, let’s be honest with you… on November 3rd — Fox declared Biden the winner in Arizona. MAGA-world went ballistic, they said ‘I’m not watching Fox News,’ they switched over and they looked and they found Newsmax,” Bolling said.
Bolling then sparked rapturous applause among the TPUSA event attendees when he said that “Fox lost about 40% of their audience. 40%. That’s a big number.” In recent weeks, Fox has disputed such claims, pointing out that while some programs have dropped a third of their viewers since election night, they still still atop the cable news ratings.
Bolling then continued to discuss those who remain at Fox News who are concerned by the growing popularity of competitors such as Newsmax and OAN.
“I have friends still there that say they are very, very nervous about it, they’re sucking wind on it and they don’t know how to turn it around.”
