Donald Trump’s favorite network, Fox News, is now launching a new ad campaign featuring their latest signature tagline: “Real news. Real honest opinion.”
A teaser for the ad campaign was released on Monday, and Fox News commentators say they will continue to roll out various ads for it throughout the week.
The new slogan emerges after the network decided to ditch the tagline “Fair and Balanced,” which accompanied the launch of Fox News in 1996. Viewers of the cable news network have seen major changes since Ailes was ousted in July 2016 amid sexual harassment allegations.
Over the past thirteen months, the changes included losing prime-time hosts Megyn Kelly, and Greta Van Susteren, not to mention Bill O’Reilly, who was fired in April 2017 amid sexual harassment allegations. Apparently, the network decided to change their slogan due to the harsh criticism they received for their past. But much to their surprise, Americans have already jumped on the bashing bandwagon, as they mocked the network who claims to be the “most trusted.”
Check out these tweets, below:

80% of the words in that slogan are inaccurate. And “opinion” is technically more propaganda than anything.

“Real news. Real honest opinion. Still a fake President!”

Fox can pretend they’re an accurate news organization all they want, but we Americans know the real truth. The network is notorious for spreading fake news, lies, and conspiracy theories. If they simply removed the “Real news” part and just stated “Real Opinion” that would be somewhat honest. But the most pathetic part is that they need to launch a new campaign in order to convince their viewers that they are not lying to them.
