Emergency Meeting Called At FOX NEWS- Here’s What We Know

Fox News executive chairman Rupert Murdoch has called for a company-wide emergency meeting on the heels of the news that their ratings are going down the toilet.

As AFF reported earlier, FOX dropped to last place, behind both MSNBC and CNN in the primetime 25-54 age bracket, the one most coveted by advertisers. In total primetime viewers, Fox beat CNN but lost to MSNBC.

Other than beating CNN in the primetime demo, pretty much the same thing happened Friday. The left-wing MSNBC slaughtered Fox with 503,000 demo viewers compared to just 371,000.

According to Deadline, Murdoch is set to host two meetings at the network’s new studio, Studio F, where he will discuss both the company’s plans for a new newsroom and its overall direction and future. The meetings will reportedly be held in two shifts to accommodate all staff.

Murdoch’s Wednesdays meetings are reportedly meant to “rally the troops” in the face of the latest problems.

The network has been rocked by a series of sexual harassment and racial discrimination lawsuits in recent months, culminating in last month’s departure of star anchor and one-time cable news ratings king Bill O’Reilly.

Daniel Nussbaum at Breitbart reports that after O’Reilly’s departure, the network’s primetime schedule underwent perhaps its most significant reshuffling  in years, with Tucker Carlson taking over O’Reilly’s 8 p.m. time slot and the panel show The Five moving to 9 p.m.

But the network faces an early test of its new lineup from MSNBC, which has benefitted greatly from star anchor Rachel Maddow and its lineup’s breathless coverage of the Trump administration.

Last week, MSNBC won the key demo (25-54) during weeknights for the first time in seven years, with The Rachel Maddow Show, The Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell and The 11th Hour with Brian Williams all finishing first in their respective time slots, according to Adweek.

How embarrassing.

Meanwhile, the network’s former talent is moving on. On Monday, Bill O’Reilly announced he would be a guest on radio host and the Blaze founder Glenn Beck’s program on Fridays.

I have a real bad feeling about the direction Fox is heading. Hopefully I’m wrong.
