Look out Fake News, a new sheriff is in town.
That’s right. Move over MSNBC and CNN because your fake news is being replaced with Fox News.
According toThe Blaze:
After several months of challenging longtime cable-news giant Fox News, the ratings for MSNBC and CNN have fallen, propelling Fox News to the top of the ratings chart in virtually every timeslot.
At the end of May, spurred by a string of unfavorable news stories about President Donald Trump, the left-leaning MSNBC surpassed CNN and Fox News in the key 25-54 demographic during primetime for the first time since September 2000, and Rachel Maddow appeared to have solidified her position as the top cable-news host in the wake of Bill O’Reilly’s departure from Fox News. Since then, Fox News has steadily recovered and is now dominating in the key demo, including against Maddow.
And, the man of the hour?
He beat out both MSNBC’s Chris Hayes and Anderson Cooper.
Not only does he lead Fox News with the most key demo viewers at 598,000 but he hasn’t had any sexual harassment charges (would ya believe that?)!
“In total viewers,” according to The Blaze, “Carlson had 2.86 million viewers at 8 p.m.”
But as a whole, Fox News is commanding the ratings which “are made more impressive by the fact its numbers have improved compared to this time in 2016, when millions of Americans were closely following the presidential campaign.”
It’s likely that CNN is suffering because of their snowflake attitude.
CNN’s ratings relative to its competitors has suffered the most in recent weeks, following a string of damaging stories, including one that emerged on Tuesday, when CNN’s Andrew Kaczynski was accused of bullying a Reddit user who posted an animated image of CNN’s logo superimposed on the head of a wrestler who Trump “punched” in an old professional wrestling video, sparking outrage from critics. Trump had made the video famous by posting it on his Twitter account.
Kaczynski suggested in his article CNN could reveal the identity of the Reddit user in the future if he stopped showing remorse for posting the video, which he reportedly apologized for repeatedly, despite it being a joke.
Whoa. Sensitive much? I mean, get over yourself, CNN.
Start reporting news based off of fact and stop letting your emotions get to the best of you.
