(RightWing.org) – Fox News continues to struggle with its approach to covering the highly contested 2020 presidential election. Previously friendly to President Donald Trump, the network appears to have turned on him, starting with its election night decision to call Arizona and Virginia for Democratic hopeful Joe Biden before all the votes were in.
Fox News made early election calls for Biden, including Virginia and Arizona on election night, that put the network in a difficult position with many of its viewers — including Trump https://t.co/7ZM7QcqgfE

Now, it appears a bit of a civil war of sorts has broken out at Fox News since its election night calls, with some hosts appearing to support Trump administration theories about the election and others speaking out against them.
The near-schizophrenic reporting at Fox appears to be divided between prime time hosts Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham, Tucker Carlson, and Judge Jeanine, who favor Trump, and several daytime hosts and commentators who appear to have turned against the administration.
Eric Deggans, a television critic and media analyst for several media outlets, claims Fox News has always “walked a thin line” between supporting conservative causes and reporting the news like its mainstream rivals. Whatever their current motivation may be, one fact remains certain — the network’s ratings are falling.
