(NewsReady.com) – Fox News is under fire for the way it has covered the 2020 election results. First, the network called Arizona for Joe Biden, even though the state was still counting hundreds of thousands of votes. Then, it called the entire race for the Democrat candidate despite legal challenges from President Donald Trump. Now, the network might pay the price for its decisions.
According to a November 12 report by Axios’ Mike Allen, sources say the president is thinking about starting a digital media company to compete with the conservative network. The anonymous person reportedly said the Arizona call upset Trump and “He plans to wreck Fox.”
Trump lent credibility to the report when he attacked Fox in a series of tweets and retweets in the hours after its publication.
.@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!

This isn’t the first time there have been rumors of Trump starting his own media empire. In 2016, people speculated he planned to do the same thing if he lost the election. On November 3, more than 70 million Americans voted for the commander-in-chief, so it might not be a bad business decision to tap into that support going forward.
