I wonder if those criticizing the premise of the channel find it sad that there are three large networks, CNBC, Bloomberg, and Fox Business broadcasting to a single minority community (financiers).
And there's already a news channel that's just for white people. It's called Fox News.
Racist and wrong. The last time I looked Harris Faulkner and Jeanine Pirro were employed by the channel.
Jeanine Pirro's parents are Lebanese. But that's beside the point. I never said anything about the people appearing on the channel, just its target audience. Fox News has established its status as the voice of the Trumpian right, in large part, by fueling the racial resentment of older white conservatives. Its hosts are known for bashing immigrants (including legal immigrants) and for using the language of white supremacists: https://www.businessinsider.com/fox-news-opinion-programs-white-supremacist-rhetoric-great-replacement-2019-5
In other words, Fox News executives and hosts know who their audience is. And that's the reason why only one percent of the channel's audience is black: https://www.mediaite.com/tv/only-1-of-fox-news-viewers-are-black/
(By comparison, MSNBC's audience is 24% black.)
Fox News is the voice of an aging, overwhelmingly white America that is on its way out but still fighting tooth-and-nail to preserve its privileges in the face of a more open and more inclusive society. That was my (facetiously stated) point.
