    I’m a dedicated Fox News & Fox Business follower for over 12 years. Without Fox News we’re doomed as a country in protecting America’s Freedom.
    Now for my first severe criticism: Lucifer coming TV series is a huge mistake for your brand. By running this 2016 new show will destroy your trust and admiration from your faithful viewers. You’ll be joining up with PC lefty’s. You’ll disgrace the right who are followers of Christ. This new program is over the top and should not run. Ditch it. Thank you.

    And you’ll still be in the game.
