Fox News is seeing a massive drop in ratings for the second month in a row after their massive betrayal of the American people, and it is doubtful they will be able to compete on the left as easily as they believed they would have been able to. On Election Eve Fox News execs made the decision to drop the burden of reporting news to supporters of President Donald J. Trump by chasing them off with anti-Trump propaganda. Specifically, the news card readers on FOX did this by “calling” states for their pal Democrat Joe Biden, that should have never gone to him.
Fox News had slowly been working up to the final betrayal, by inserting Democrat propaganda, but Nov. 3rd was the final straw for at least half of Fox’s audience.
Trump called it weeks after the election:
“Fox News ratings are getting really bad. ‘Tucker Carlson Tonight’ viewership has dropped to 12th place. ‘Hannity’ has fallen to 19th place. ‘The Ingraham Angle’ viewership has fallen to 24th place,” one ratings water posted on Twitter.
December’s Ratings Collapse for Fox News Weekend continues to be a nightmare. Going from record ratings before their duplicitous Arizona call to massive rating collapse by Sat-Sun 12/19-12/20.
Here are the current Fox News weekend rating losses according to Nielsen as of 12/19-12/20.

A recent article from the Daily Wire gives some great background chatter from a former Fox News host.
Eric Bolling Says Employees At Fox News Are ‘Nervous’ About Drop-In Ratings:
According to Sinclair TV’s Eric Bolling, a former host at Fox News, staffers at his previous network is worried by the change in audience numbers in the aftermath of the 2020 presidential election.
Speaking at Turning Point USA’s annual Student Action Summit in West Palm Beach, Florida, Bolling explained why networks such as Newsmax and One America News Network had surged in popularity after the election on November 3rd.
“Here’s what happened guys, let’s be honest with you… on November 3rd — Fox declared Biden, the winner in Arizona. MAGA-world went ballistic; they said ‘I’m not watching Fox News,’ they switched over, and they looked, and they found Newsmax,” Bolling said.
Bolling then sparked rapturous applause among the TPUSA event attendees when he said that “Fox lost about 40% of their audience. 40%. That’s a big number.” In recent weeks, Fox has disputed such claims, pointing out that while some programs have dropped a third of their viewers since election night, they still atop the cable news ratings.
Bolling then continued to discuss those who remain at Fox News who are concerned by the growing popularity of competitors such as Newsmax and OAN.
“I have friends still there that say they are very, very nervous about it, they’re sucking wind on it, and they don’t know how to turn it around.”
Fox News’ decision on election night to call Arizona for Biden “far before any other outlet” did indeed stir controversy, with the network “drawing the ire of many Trump supporters for other on-air decisions.”
