Just as Republicans are soul-searching following the decisive electoral defeat in November that highlighted the country's shifting demographics, Fox News, the party's preferred cable news network, is looking inward amid record declines in ratings and ...

I hope the Latinos aren't easily swayed by Fox News' sudden change of heart. It will be interesting to see how they go about courting both demographics: the Latino viewers and the typical Fox News viewer who is "hostile toward undocumented immigrants."

Happy to see that Fox gave Sarah Palin the boot --but I'm sure that the gun lobby will be happy to give her a high-profile, high-paying position!

"For starters, Fox News chief Roger Ailes appears to be trying to change perceptions that his network is hostile toward undocumented immigrants and hopes to increasingly draw Latino viewers, a key voting bloc that swung overwhelming toward Obama in November."

Yeah, good luck with that. Everything I read says the republican party is falling further behind amongst Latino's by the day. They will NEVER catch up, they can't turn their ideology inside out, let alone turn out the closet racists in their rich, white base. I'm just happily looking forward to the day when Latino's become the majority in AZ and turn that most racist of states into a bastion of freedom and Sheriff Joe into an afterthought in their state history books.

It is silly to think that Latinos can be fooled by this BS!

Thanks Carrie for the link to the article by Mr. Calderone. I think Mr. Ailes will have more luck growing hair that increasing Latino viewers. Read and noted.

Thanks Carrie. I don't think Fox news is going to have much success.

Latino's are way too intelligent to fall for the fake news network "change of heart". I prefer the good old days when networks were not in politics-they were in entertainment. There was lots of variety in programming and there was something good for the whole family to enjoy 7 days a week from 6pm until signoff on weekends and from 7 pm weekdays until signoff. Saturday mornings had great cartoons for kids. Friday nights I used to watch the double feature gladiator movies with my Dad and Saturdays-the entire family enjoyed Chiller Theatre double feature. I don't think my brother ever actually saw a single monster-he always covered his head with a blanket just as the fill in the blank monster attacked. Ah, the good ole days-I do miss them.

Thanks but I think Latino's will see through the distortion of Fox News. They are way too smart to believe what that network has to say.

Noted (I hope). Ailes is delusional. Why would anyone want to START watching FuxNoise? He's a day late and a dollar short. I think most have better things to do with their time. So many quit watching already, and I don't think they're going back. So, is Ailes going down with the ship?

Do they really think that Latinos are that gullible? Or, tjat tjey have such short memories? Somehow, I don't think their plan wil fly.

Just what the world doesn't need...new audiences for Faux 'News'. With the racism present in Fox 'news' they are rather desperate to be looking to new audiences.
