Fox News Has Come Up With An Idea To Bring Back Trump Supporters & It Might Work
Fox News has been crushed ever since their Election Night debacle but they have an idea to bring back Trump supporters and it just might work.
They are in the works to hire former Trump Administration Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany.
News broke when McEnany listed an “employment agreement with Fox News in January” in a financial disclosure after leaving the government.
A Fox News spokesperson said McEnany “is not currently an employee or contributor” at the network.
McEnany and Fox have had discussion after the election but according to reports they paused however it appears the network is trying to hire as soon as possible.
Journalist Yashar Ali has reported that despite McEnany not being employed at Fox the network is negotiating a deal her.
McEnany was fearless during press conferences and often the media in their place during briefings.
Senior Trump adviser Hope Hicks also worked at Fox for a bit when she took a break from working in the White House in 2018.
McEnany had previously worked as a contributor at CNN and was a spokeswoman for the Republican National Committee before taking the job as press secretary.
Hiring McEnany would be a big boost for Fox looking to rebound in the cable news ratings.
Recently, Fox let go reporters that were tied to the decision desk that some say were responsible for their election night coverage.
The Hollywood Reporter wrote that Fox had to make a change and purged those responsible:
Fox News Digital is laying off staff, as a continuation of restructuring plans the company first announced last fall. The new cuts also reflect a news cycle that may be less intense in the aftermath of the election, and with Joe Biden set to take office tomorrow. […] Among those let go Tuesday was Chris Stirewalt, the politics editor for Fox News. A 10-year veteran of the company, Stirewalt was also a key member of the Fox News decision desk, which drew the ire of President Trump after becoming the first network to call Arizona for Biden.
Will McEnany end up at Fox? We shall see.
