Amid recent changes to Fox News, which has resulted in the cancellation of “Lou Dobbs Tonight,” the network’s CEO Suzanne Scott will hold a quarterly address with employees this week per Mediaite.

Furthermore, 2021 started rough for Fox News, which received a $2.7 billion lawsuit from voting systems firm Smartmatic. The suit was filed against Fox and hosts, including Dobbs, over false claims made about the election.

Ratings have also declined as the network has fallen to third place in the ratings behind CNN and MSNBC. Ratings seem to be going up after a tough start to the year. Nonetheless, Scott is ready to discuss the issues plaguing Fox News in a written memo to employees.

“We will be conducting a company-wide address via audio Zoom as part of our quarterly town hall series,” Scott wrote in her memo. “We will be updating everyone on various initiatives and sharing the good news taking place across our platforms. Over the last few weeks, Fox has shaken up its lineup, particularly their daytime program as they gear towards covering the Joe Biden administration for the next four years.

Nonetheless, Navarro took a snipe at all those associated with Trump trying to profit new with books. “Yes, another former Trump accomplice writing a tell-all book now, which I will not buy,” Navarro said

She then transitioned her attention to Christie, whose book sales didn’t do so well for its opening week it sold less than 3,000 copies which constitutes a colossal publishing flop,” something Trump mocked

“No, I’m thinking just how much I relish the fact that these former Trumpers, who are now pretending not to be, can’t sell their books,” Navarro stated. “My dog has more Instagram followers than books sold by Chris Christie.”

Streaming platform Hulu decided to yank a documentary over the Astroworld concert tragedy produced by ABC-affiliate KTRK in Houston. 

The 50-minute news special called “Astroworld: Concert From Hell” documents the “minute-by-minute look at what happened in the crowd, the young victims who were killed, and what happens next.”

However, after a day of premiering on Hulu, there was plenty of social media backlash due to the tragic event occurring less than a month ago, resulting in the streaming outlet pulling it from its library. 

“Hulu removed it because it was improperly branded to make it appear as if it was a Hulu original when it was not. It had previously aired on KTRK on Nov. 20,” wrote TheWrap after talking with a source close to the matter. 

During Travis Scott’s Astroworld performance on Nov. 3 at NRG Park, a crowd surge caused a frenzy and left some people crushed or with cardiac arrest. 

More than 50,000 people attended the festival, leading to more than 300 people going to the field hospital for treatment, and at least ten people have died. As of now, more than 100 lawsuits have been filed on behalf of victims.
