Fox News is in a downfall right now and unless they figure something out very soon they could be done. Ever since they made their fateful decision to fire Bill O’Reilly they have been moving in the wrong direction. In fact, the aren’t moving in any direction at all. It seems like they have no idea what to do and their viewers can see that. They have been losing millions in revenue ever since this happened and are in big trouble. They do still have successful shows but nothing like that of Bill O’Reilly. Conservatives decided to start boycotting the network after they fired him.
He was fired after he allegedly sexually harassed several women that he used to work with. None of these claims came with any proof or evidence. That is another reason people were so angry. Now Fox News has made another big decision regarding an employee. They have released the head of Fox Sports, Jamie Horowitz after more claims of sexual harassment. When will the truth come out? It’s been far too long to wait.
Horowitz was credited with putting Fox Sports on the map, regularly competing with ESPN for thr highest ratings. That is why it came as such a shock to so many people to see him fired. Fox Sports President Eric Shanks sent an email to his staff explaining some of the decision.
“Everyone at FOX Sports, no matter what role we play, or what business, function or show we contribute to — should act with respect and adhere to professional conduct at all times,” he says. “These values are non-negotiable.”
Fox in general has been very quick with their decision which leads to the idea that they might be finding out more and more about what is really going on behind the scenes. That is far from saying that this man is guilty but it does raise some questions. However, Fox has been getting a very bad name as of late and a lot of that is very unfair criticism. They are still one of the few that provides the real news.
