Fox News trims Trump fawning

Fox News, a staunch agitation-and-propaganda link in Donald Trump's "fake news" onslaught, has decided to trim its interruption of other programming when the president holds a political rally.
NEW YORK (AP) — Fox News Channel has recently pulled back from airing President Donald Trump’s campaign-style rallies during prime time, a move that could put a crimp in Republican efforts to reach voters in the weeks before midterm elections.
During much of the late summer, Fox would pre-empt its lucrative nightly lineup of Tucker Carlson, Sean Hannity and Laura Ingraham in order to air the rallies. None of its rivals did so. It was an important platform for the president and his supporters, since Fox’s opinionated hosts are generally their first choice for political coverage.
Once it might have been thought that a news outlet would target the informing of the electorate. Now, it seems that the luster is waning from the liar-in-chief. When even his most obvious supporters pull back from the focal point of today's waxing oligarchy, what's a poor president to do?

Depressing, depressing-er, depressing-est.
