Donald Trump launches ANOTHER tirade against Fox News claiming 'their contributors are a disaster' after warning media will get 'no ratings' if Joe Biden takes the White House

President Donald Trump continued his attacks on Fox News Monday, saying it has become 'so hard' to watch the network and blasting its on-air commentators.
Trump tweeted about the network Monday after a weekend when he golfed Saturday and Sunday, but still found time to retweet clips from Fox Business Network commentators Maria Bartiromo and Lou Dobbs. 
'So hard to watch @FoxNews anymore. They are working so hard against the people (viewers) that got them there,' Trump wrote.
'Their contributors are a disaster, and all over the place. The Radical Left has scared Fox into submission, just like they have so many others. Sad, but we will WIN!' he added.

Ratings, a fixation of Trump's before he captured the White House, were featured in another media related tweet the president fired off Monday.
He retweeted a clip from White House official Dan Scavino, an assistant to the president and deputy chief of staff for communications. The clip of a Biden speech is in black and white, with old fashioned piano music in the background and edited to look like it was played on an antiquated film projector.  
'Is this what you want for your President??? With no ratings, media will go down along with our great USA!' Trump wrote of Biden, 77. Trump is 74.Trump has spent days inveighing against 'cancel culture' and defending attempts to take down monuments or rename institutions.
He has also gone after the network over polling, after it reported on public polls that have him down an average of 9 points behind Democratic former Vice President Joe Biden. 
He also has repeatedly sought to pump up conservative outlets seeking to position themselves as a Fox alternative such as One America News Network, whose ratings pale in comparison to the cable giant with a stable of conservative commentators. 
Trump's ire at the network is at odds with some of his other posts, including a pinned tweet where Fox co-host Jesse Waters defends his controversial pardon of Roger Stone, who was convicted of witness tampering and lying to Congress.

In the segment Waters brings up other controversial pardons, including the Nixon pardon, President Andrew Johnson's pardon of confederate generals, and Bill Clinton's Marc Rich pardon. 
Trump also retweeted a favorable clip of Fox News host Jeanine Pirro interviewing Trump ultra-loyalist Rep. Matt Gaetz of Florida.
It was unclear what segment on the network had prompted Trump to air his dislike Monday. 
On July 5, fresh from two speeches which were aired live  Trump went ater the network for reporting on polls showing him trailing rival Joe Biden and facing tough challenges in swing states.
The president accused the network of running 'suppression polls' – meant to drive down turnout – by publishing reports that showed him behind, without providing further evidence. 
The network had reported on polls showing Trump trailing Democrat Joe Biden by 9 percentage points in a respected polling average. 
Fox's nonpartisan polling unit also released a series of polls giving Biden the edge in critical swing states – including some that Trump carried in 2016. 
The polls had Biden leading Trump in Texas, Georgia, and Florida – with Biden holding a whopping 8 point lead in the Sunshine state, with a 49-40.
Trump moved his legal residence from New York to Florida, and regularly visits his Mar-a-Lago club there.

Fox 'gladly puts up the phony suppression polls as soon as they come out,' Trump tweeted. 'We are leading in the REAL polls because people are sick & tired of watching the Democrat run cities, in all cases, falling apart. Also, now 96% Approval Rating in the Republican Party. Another 2016!'
Trump regularly touts his GOP approval rating without citing the source. 
Trump fired off another tweet where he tagged Fox and wrote that its 'weekend afternoons is the worst! Getting into @CNN and MSDNC territory,' Trump said, insulting rival networks CNN and MSNBC. 
Then he put in a plug for One America News Network and the conservative Newsmax network, urging people to watch them 'instead.'
'Much better!' Trump wrote.
One recent Fox story that appeared online noted Trump's lead over Biden in public polls. 
Karl Rove, a former top George W. Bush advisor and Fox contributor, said on the network's air: 'In some states, it is close and within the margin of error. But, let’s be honest about it, the president is behind today. All the national polls suggest he is behind.'
A June 26 story on Fox was headlined: 'Trump in Trouble?'   
Trump's most outspoken attack came in May when afternoon anchor Neil Cavuto warned viewers that hydroxychloroquine 'will kill you' after Trump boasted that he has been taking it to 'prevent' coronavirus.
Trump raged 'we miss the great Roger Ailes,' the Fox News founder who left the network in disgrace as massive payouts for sexual harassment by him and Bill O'Reilly, the network's one-time biggest star, were revealed.
