Charlie Kirk Slams Fox News for Abandoning Core Conservatives

Charlie Kirk, the founder of Turning Point USA, has caused a stir by revealing that he’s no longer in the good graces of Fox News. In an interview with Breitbart, Kirk expressed his dismay that none of Fox’s reporters or personalities attended TPUSA’s recent AmericaFest conference in Phoenix, a noticeable change from previous years. Kirk, known for his conservative activism, didn’t hold back and suggested that his rocky relationship with Fox had “gone off the reservation.”

Kirk’s frustration with Fox News stemmed from the network’s decision to part ways with Tucker Carlson, its most popular host. Kirk lamented that he hadn’t been invited on the network since Carlson’s departure, citing this as a major factor in the rift. In addition, Kirk dropped the bombshell that some of his favorite Fox personalities, such as Jesse Watters and Greg Gutfield, were prohibited from attending AmericaFest, allegedly at the behest of the network’s controlling leadership.

The conservative activist didn’t stop there, revealing in an interview with Megyn Kelly that he turned down an appearance on Fox after noticing a producer’s inclusion of gender pronouns in an email signature. This prompted Kirk to take a stand against what he sees as Fox’s sympathetic stance towards transgender ideology. He also pointed to a controversial segment aired by Fox, which focused on a couple who had “transitioned” their young daughter, as further evidence of the network’s divergence from conservative values.

Kirk’s disenchantment with Fox News reflects a broader trend among conservative audiences, who have become increasingly disillusioned with the network. This dissatisfaction has been exacerbated by Fox’s decision to settle a lawsuit with Dominion Voting Systems, and the perceived shift away from the populist sentiments of former President Donald Trump and his supporters. Despite maintaining higher viewership than its competitors, Fox News is facing a trust deficit among conservative voters, with just one-third of them expressing confidence in the network, according to a Rasmussen Reports poll.

This rift between Charlie Kirk and Fox News underscores the growing divide within the conservative media landscape, as individuals and outlets vie for the allegiance of the right-leaning audience. As the battle for ideological supremacy heats up, it remains to be seen whether reconciliation between Kirk and Fox News is on the horizon or if this split will deepen further.
