(LibertySociety.com) – On Saturday, November 7, Fox News joined other mainstream media sites in declaring Joe Biden the winner of the presidential election. That day, the network brought on lawyer Cleta Mitchell to discuss the results. And, it went downhill from there.
Mitchell reminded the Fox hosts that it’s not their jobs to call elections. Off to the side, anchor Sandra Smith could be heard reacting to her guest with contempt. She had a puzzled look on her face and exclaimed, “What?!”
Leftists started sharing the moment and calling Mitchell a “nutjob.”

President Donald Trump is also disgusted by Fox News’ behavior in recent days. On November 12, he spent the day retweeting supporters who believe the network is being unfair, and he called them out for their sudden flip-flop.
.@FoxNews daytime ratings have completely collapsed. Weekend daytime even WORSE. Very sad to watch this happen, but they forgot what made them successful, what got them there. They forgot the Golden Goose. The biggest difference between the 2016 Election, and 2020, was @FoxNews!

The media is quickly jumping on the Biden bandwagon. That might work for some of them, but it would be bad news for Fox if the president’s supporters abandon the network.
