Fox has reportedly received lower ratings post-election as its viewers have been shifting to alternative news outlets.
The President has slammed the station before, commenting they forgot the “Golden Goose” that made them successful.
.@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!

“Despite what you hear, look at all of them up there, look at all of that fake news, it’s unbelievable,” President Trump stated. “Unfortunately Fox has become fake news too, I don’t know what happens to these people.”
Earlier this month, former Fox personality Eric Bolling estimated that Fox News lost 40 percent of its viewership on November 3 when it declared Joe Biden the Arizona winner during the disputed 2020 election.
