Viewers have abandoned Fox News, especially the haughty Martha MacCallum, in favor of a media group called NewsMax and CNN’s Brian Stelter thought it was worrisome enough to come to their rescue.
Notably, Stelter misunderstands the reason why people left the sinking Fox News ship and stopped watching MacCallum.
Fox’s fall from grace was rapid. In 2018 they were rated #1, and now they are behind what the brilliant CNN reporter, Stelter, describes as “wannabes”.
From his report, Stelter said:
The win, fueled by conservative viewers who are disappointed by the election results, happened Monday evening. In the key 25- to 54-year-old demographic prized by advertisers, “Greg Kelly Reports” on Newsmax out-rated “The Story with Martha MacCallum” on Fox.
The margin was narrow — Kelly averaged 229,000 viewers in the demo and MacCallum averaged 203,000 — but it is still a milestone in the cable-news industry.
Before the election, Newsmax was not regarded as a formidable competitor to Fox; it was mostly dismissed as one of a handful of wannabe challengers.
But President Trump’s loss on November 3 changed the cable TV calculus. Viewers who were frustrated when Fox admitted the truth of Trump’s loss sought other options. Trump encouraged them to try Newsmax.
Newsmax — and Kelly in particular — offered a safe space in which Biden was not called president-elect and Trump was not yet defeated.
Through the post-election weeks in November, as Trump’s legal team suffered dozens of losses in court in its attempt to overturn the results, Kelly insisted that he believed Trump would still prevail.
His 7 p.m. program consists of long, pro-Trump, anti-media commentaries of the type typically found later in the evening on Fox. And a certain subset of viewers is rewarding him for it. Kelly’s show is usually Newsmax’s highest-rated show of the day,” the CNN reporter said.
Aww… sounds like the CNN guy is really hurt.
It is noteworthy that CNN would come to the rescue of Eric Swallows’ friends on Fox News. He was a frequent guest on the Fox News show with MacCallum, where she would often openly flirt with him and giggle, to the point rumors started about an affair between the two.
It’s cute how all the enemy media stick together when it comes to getting beaten by the “wannabes” in America, who are completely misunderstood by the elite pundits and politicians in America.
