After endless months of strife between Pres. Donald Trump and Fox News things have reportedly reached a tipping point. With tensions apparently boiling over on election night.
As a result comes a stunning report. ABC News’ John Santucci took to Twitter on Friday and posted:
On life after, anger at Fox / Murdoch family cannot be understated. Should he lose, Trump wants to destroy Fox – aides believe they can steal hosts Hannity & Carlson. Sources believe Trump will never admit he lost should we get there – instead stick with “rigged” “fraud” “stolen” https://t.co/15PzANMS9c

Murdoch said to have triggered Pres. Trump on election night. This after Fox News had called the state of Arizona for Democrat Joe Biden. Then Trump took matters into his own hands. As The Washington Examiner told Trump even reaching out to Murdoch and pressing the issue.
Sources claim that Trump was raging behind the scenes. Which led him to call Murdoch and demand a retraction. Yet he couldn’t convince Murdoch to reverse the network’s decision. Murdoch spoke to Trump earlier this week and said he was set to lose the election, but Trump was having none of it.
As for Hannity, he and the president run hot and cold. And Carlson currently leads all of the political pack. As the anchor sailed past 5.3 million average viewers per night last month on his program. The top rated-host even floated as a potential presidential pick in 2024.
Be sure that Murdoch won’t back down.
