In what appears to be an announcement of capitulation by Fox News to Donald Trump, Fox News’ Howard Kurtz tweeted yesterday that Fox is feeling the boycott and Fox News chief, Roger Ailes, with senior staff, will meet with Trump to hear his complaints (as if they don’t already know).
With Trump boycotting Fox, forthcoming company statement says Ailes will be joined by senior Fox editorial executives to hear his complaints

The massive Fox boycott is obviously hitting home, with Fox reportedly hemorrhaging viewers irate with their clearly biased treatment of Donald Trump. It is going to take a powerful lot for Fox to win my viewership back. I trusted Fox. I had been a Foxaholic for many years. My TV was tuned to Fox almost exclusively. I stopped watching Fox the night of the first GOP debate. Trust is a hard thing to replace.
I first noticed Fox’s anti-Trump bias months ago on The Five. Dana Perino has such a deep hatred for Donald Trump that the mere mention of Trump’s name provokes from her a caustic rant of personal insults worthy of Hillary Clinton. Other notable Trump-haters on Fox are Charles Krauthammer, Karl Rove, Megyn Kelly, Bill O’Reilly, Geraldo Rivera, and Rich Lowry.
