Most hosts on the network clearly lean to the right; most supported former President Donald Trump; most hold conservative and traditional American views.
But when everything is said and done, in the end, Fox News is still part of the 'corporate mainstream media,' as has been proven once again this past week.
On her Substack, former Newsmax TV White House correspondent Emerald Robinson, now with LindellTV, blasted Fox News for refusing to even mention a bombshell new documentary film produced by top conservative figure Dinesh D'Souza proving once and for all that Trump's reelection was literally stolen from him by a highly organized criminal effort aimed at stuffing ballot boxes.
The film, "2000 Mules," includes several video clips literally showing people stuffing ballots into drop boxes, often in the middle of the night and sometimes wearing gloves so as to hide their fingerprints. In addition, the researchers for the project -- True the Vote's Catherine Engelbrecht and Gregg Philips, the latter of whom has been an election analyst for more than three decades -- were able to use cellphone data to track thousands of "mules" across several cities to dozens of drop boxes where they deposited ballots after picking them up at a number of regional "non-profit" organizations.
For months following Trump's alleged 'loss,' skeptics have been demanding evidence that the election was indeed stolen. They wanted proof. Dinesh D'Souza and his research team have provided it, and still, Fox News -- which called Arizona way early for Biden, if you'll recall -- refuses to allow even a mention of the film on-air, much less the video evidence.
Fox News won’t mention 2000 Mules.
Flashback: Fox called Arizona seconds after the polls closed - immediately after they did, 4 swing states where Trump was winning landslides, simultaneously stopped counting ballots and resumed at 3am where almost all ballots were Biden votes.

And that includes Tucker Carlson, the one host who might have been 'brave' enough to actually air it.
Fox News has been on a collision course with its own audience since the stolen 2020 election — and you can almost feel the impact coming. The network has made so many dumb bets lately that it’s like watching a busload of trailer park residents get offloaded to play the nickel slots in Reno. All you can do is shake your head as you think: I know they’re all going bankrupt, and they’re already bankrupt. It’s been perfectly obvious for years now that Rupert Murdoch and his feckless sons turned against President Trump and actually helped Joe Biden — which is not just unforgivable. It’s unsustainable.
Why? Because it requires the silence of other prominent conservatives, and the short term memories of GOP voters, to allow Fox News to continue pretending that it’s a conservative news network. Guess what: GOP voters have not forgotten about Fox News calling Arizona early — and prominent conservatives are no longer interested in ignoring Fox’s treachery.
She went on to include a screengrab of a tweet from D'Souza in which he said Carlson and his team "specifically instructed" Engelbrecht not to mention the documentary during a recent appearance.

"This sort of thing would be unthinkable just a few years ago. D’Souza’s tweet virtually guarantees that he will never appear on any Fox News program again," Robinson wrote. "He will be black-listed — a common practice at Fox (just ask Rudy Giuliani and Marjorie Taylor Greene and Peter Navarro). Dinesh knew all of this and did it anyway — and that should tell you something. (He even tagged a Fox producer on Tucker’s team to name and shame him.) Fox has lost its monopoly power on the Right, and it’s no longer immune from criticism by the conservative community."
Fox News is no different than the left-leaning, Washington-centric corporate media, as this proves. And the network was in on the 2020 election steal.
