Jesse Watters: ‘We shall overcome’ the coronavirus ‘if we all work together’

Jesse Watters began “Watters’ World” on Saturday by delivering a message of positivity to his audience, saying he’s sure America can overcome the devastation from the coronavirus. “The United States of America is rolling into a recession or a depression. What we do now will determine which one it’ll be. First, we have to stop the spread. You know what to do. Wash your hands, stay clean and practice social distancing,” Watters said, reminding people of the guidelines given to keep people safe from exposure to the virus. “If you can stay inside this week, work from home if you can. Don’t fly if you don’t have to. The virus is mostly in 10 large counties. A very high percentage in New York, California and Washington state,” he continued. “Some of these areas recognize the threat and are shutting down everything. All of them need to do that.” Watters talked about where the country stands medically and scientifically, assuring people the “brightest” are on the case. “All the brightest scientists in America [are] working around the clock to find a vaccine. Our people are the most innovative in the world,” Watters said. The host also addressed the president’s leadership, urging him and American industry leaders to do whatever they can. “The president should be invoking every possible law and power available to him. He should be mobilizing the military and declaring war on the coronavirus. Rally the country around the mantra ‘made in America,'” Watters said. “Every American industry should have all hands on deck. This isn’t a time for weakness. This is a time for strength.” “Our country’s fighting an invisible enemy within our borders,” Watters added. “We’ll dull the spike and kill it if we all work together.” Watters expressed his optimism toward an American rebound. “We’ve had to come together by staying apart. I know one thing for sure, we’ll stop it and we’ll kill it and we’ll be a better country for it. Tough times are ahead,” Watters said. “The American character shining bright, loving our families and our neighbors and working nonstop to save lives. It’s now in your hands. We have a great spirit and we shall overcome.”

We shall, indeed.  Thanks Jesse!  Outstanding!!     🙂

Opinion/Analysis: Fox News More than Triples CNN’s Collapsing Viewership

Even with the Democrat primary in high gear, the U.S.S. CNN’s ratings are still beyond pathetic. The far-left CNN, a hate network that spreads conspiracy theories and promotes violence against President Trump and his supporters, could not even average a million viewers during the same week New Hampshire came out to vote. Worse still, CNN’s chief nemesis, Fox News, annihilated the fake news network in the ratings by averaging more than three times — three times! — as many primetime viewers as CNNLOL. Here’s the primetime breakdown of average viewers during the week of February 10: Fox: 3.2 million MSNBC: 1.677 million CNNLOL: 969,000 As you can see, during the first presidential primary in four years (Iowa is a caucus), CNNLOL belly-flopped into ninth place, losing to HGTV, TLC, the History Channel, and only barely beating the Hallmark Channel. How is that even possible? Wait, it gets worse… Here’s the total day viewership average for that same week: Fox: 1.743 million MSNBC: 920,000 CNNLOL: 630,000 Seriously, how is it even possible for a cable channel that’s currently available in some 85 million homes to attract only 630,000 average viewers throughout the day — especially during the week of the New Hampshire primary? Here’s a better question… How is it possible that CNN chief Jeff Zucker, who has not only failed to dig CNN’s ratings out of the dirt, but who has forever destroyed the credibility of CNN as a respected brand, still has a job? Numbers this low do not just point to a failure to attract viewers, they point to a flat-out rejection of CNNLOL by the American people. CNN is a joke now, a national punch-line… Throughout the country, CNN is shorthand for “fake news.” This failure and the overwhelming dominance of Fox News has to be especially bitter for a network that has devoted countless programming hours and much of its public identity to attacking and destroying Fox News… CNNLOL is obsessed with Fox, is constantly smearing Fox as dishonest, hysterical, and even “dangerous.” But here’s Fox, not just kicking CNN’s pasty fatass, but rubbing CNN’s face in the dirt, kicking in CNN’s door, raiding CNN’s refrigerator, petting CNN’s dog, and seducing CNN’s older sister. Compared to this same week last year, Fox is up 27 percent in total primetime viewers and 18 percent in total day viewers. Compared to this same week last year, CNNLOL is down five percent in primetime viewers and nine percent in total day. The only good news for CNN is that it lost a lower percentage of viewers than MSNBC, which was down 14 percent in prime time and 15 percent in total day. Okay, but… MSNBC still nearly doubled CNNLOL in total primetime viewers. CNN lost viewers during the week of the New Hampshire primary. How glorious is that? CNN expends all this energy, money, time… CNN is constantly running at a thousand-miler-per-hour… and for what? No one’s listening. No one’s watching. No one cares. CNN has no impact on anything anymore. It’s just Hate Porn for a sad, smug, and increasingly small subculture of crybaby conspiracy theorists and bitter sore losers. You tired of winning yet? Yeah, me neither.

HAHAHA!!!  That was hilarious!!   Thanks to John Nolte for that cocky, yet spot-on analysis of CNN’s demise.  CNN threw all its eggs into one basket; attacking Trump, and his supporters.   That’s not journalism.  Its  agenda-driven advocacy.  CNN used to be a dry, boring news network…basically like CSPAN.  Now it has devolved into this extreme liberal hack network that competes with MSNBC for who can pander the most to the most extreme liberal fringes of the Democrat demographic.  Basically it’s just a competition between the two of how many times they can say that Trump sucks, is a racist, is xenophobic, hates immigrants, and on and on in a given day.  That is why more and more viewers of those two failing networks are getting fed up, and are turning to Fox News which at least has SOME semblance of balance, and multiple points of view are heard during their hard news segments; something that doesn’t exist at CNN or MSNBC.  For many folks, the whole Michael Avenatti fiasco was the last straw.

Fox News beats CNN, MSNBC combined in ratings, tops all of cable

Fox News Channel attracted more prime-time viewers than CNN and MSNBC combined last week, adding to its streak as the most-watched basic cable network. Fox News averaged 2.3 million viewers during the hours of 8-11 p.m. ET from June 10-16, while MSNBC finished second with an average of 1.5 million. HGTV, A&E and USA joined them among the top five, while CNN averaged just 744,000 to finish 14th. Discovery, TNT, Food Network, TLC, Investigation Discovery, TBS, Hallmark and the History Channel also finished with more prime-time viewers than the struggling CNN. FNC also took the crown among total day viewers, averaging 1.2 million, while no other basic cable networks cracked the million-viewer mark. MSNBC came in second, averaging 850,000; CNN attracted 519,000 total day viewers. Fox News has now finished first in the total day category for 23 straight weeks. Fox News averaged 315,000 prime-time viewers among the key demographic of adults ages 25-54, compared to 192,000 for MSNBC and 173,000 for CNN. While MSNBC topped liberal rival CNN, the home of Rachel Maddow still finished with its lowest-rated week of 2019 in both total day and prime-time viewership in the key demo. In addition, “Fox & Friends” beat liberal morning shows “Morning Joe” and “New Day” combined in the demo. “Hannity” had the most-watched telecast in all of cable on June 10 with an average of 3.2 million viewers. “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” “The Ingraham Angle,” “The Five” and “Special Report with Bret Baier” were among the 19 Fox News programs that finished among the Top 25 telecasts for the week. Fox News’ town hall event with 2020 Democratic presidential hopeful Julian Castro averaged 1.1 million viewers at 6:30 p.m. ET, while CNN’s Castro town hall averaged just 654,000 viewers when it aired in prime time back on April 11.

And honestly..  Who still watches CNN?  lol   All data is courtesy of Nielsen Media Research

Fox News Channel is top basic cable network in April; CNN ratings plummet

Fox News Channel dominated basic cable for the month of April, beating news, sports, and entertainment networks in total day and primetime viewers, while rival news channel CNN continued to shed its audience. According to Nielsen Media Research, FNC garnered 2.4 million viewers in primetime and finished first among all basic cable stations for the third month in a row, and 1.4 million viewers in total day to top basic cable for the 34th consecutive month. For the 208th month in a row, FNC also beat left-leaning CNN and MSNBC across both categories, while CNN marked its lowest-rated month in total day viewers since October 2015, and since August 2015 in the key demographic of viewers age 25-54. “Hannity” finished the month of April as the highest-rated cable news program in total viewers while “Tucker Carlson Tonight” ranked number two, both outpacing MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow in key categories. Both “Tucker Carlson Tonight” (8 p.m.) and “Hannity” (9 p.m.) also beat the NBA Playoffs airing on ESPN and TNT and wrestling’s “Monday Night Raw” airing on USA Network in total viewers. Additionally, FNC’s regularly scheduled programming beat out CNN’s five-hour town hall event on April 22, bringing in 2.3 million viewers and 380,000 in the 25-54 age demo while CNN came in last in total viewers with 1.2 million and 371,00 in the demo for the night. FNC averaged 2.4 million in primetime, beating CNN’s 767,000 and MSNBC’s 1,660,000 total viewers. For the 25-54 demo, FNC brought in 389,000, topping CNN’s 198,000 and MSNBC’s 255,000.

After the Mueller report finally came out, many Americans who trusted MSNBC and CNN, realized they had been lied to for 2 years…and are voting with their remote.  MSNBC is nothing more than an organ of the DNC, and Democrat politicians.  And, CNN is utterly worthless.  It’s no wonder that Fox News, which has but a fraction of the market share of CNN, is absolutely pummeling them in the ratings.  This is only news to the dominantly liberal mainstream media and those who have trusted their bs these last couple of years.

Fox News wins cable news ratings crown for 67th straight quarter

Fox News Channel finished the third quarter of 2018 as the most-watched cable news network among total viewers for the 67th consecutive quarter, according to Nielsen Media Research. FNC was also the top rated cable news network among the key demo of adults age 25-54 for the 67th straight quarter and has now won primetime for 42 consecutive quarters. Fox News – which celebrates its 22nd anniversary this weekend – averaged 1.4 million total viewers during the third quarter, compared to 1 million for MSNBC and only 722,000 for CNN.

During the primetime hours of 8-11 p.m. ET, Fox News averaged 2.5 million viewers – up 14 percent from Q3 2017 — compared to 1.9 million for MSNBC and 1 million for CNN. Both MSNBC and CNN saw a decline compared to last year. Fox News was home to nine of the top 15 cable news programs among total viewers and seven of the top 15 in the demo, as “Hannity” topped both categories. “Hannity” averaged 3.3 million viewers, topping MSNBC’s “The Rachel Maddow Show,” which averaged 2.9 million. “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” “The Ingraham Angle” and “Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell” round out the top five, immediately followed by “The Five,” “Special Report with Bret Baier” and “The Story with Martha MacCallum.” The most-watched show on CNN was “Cuomo Prime Time,” which finished No. 23 overall in the cable news rankings, averaging 1.2 million viewers. “Hannity” also prevailed in the key demo, averaging 625,000 viewers age 25-54, followed by Maddow’s 573,000.

CNN continues to tank in the ratings..  Congrats to Fox News for continuing to beat the competition in almost every category, while CNN continues to tank in the ratings and lose viewers.  The people are voting with their wallets and their remotes, and expressing what they think about the dominant liberal mainstream media…by changing the channel, over to Fox News.    🙂

Fox News star Charles Krauthammer reveals he has weeks to live in heartbreaking letter

Charles Krauthammer, the beloved and brilliant Fox News Channel personality who gave up a pioneering career in psychiatry to become a Pulitzer Prize-winning political analyst, on Friday revealed the heartbreaking news that he is in the final stages of a losing battle with cancer. The 68-year-old’s incisive takes on politics of the day have been missing from Fox News Channel’s “Special Report” for nearly a year as he battled an abdominal tumor and subsequent complications, but colleagues and viewers alike had held out hope that he would return to the evening show he helped establish as must-viewing. But in an eloquent, yet unblinking letter to co-workers, friends and Fox News Channel viewers, Krauthammer disclosed that he has just weeks to live. “I have been uncharacteristically silent these past ten months,” the letter began. “I had thought that silence would soon be coming to an end, but I’m afraid I must tell you now that fate has decided on a different course for me.” Krauthammer, who graduated from Harvard Medical School in 1975 despite a first-year diving accident that left him a quadriplegic, explained that he had a malignant tumor removed from his abdomen last August. Although a series of setbacks left him in the hospital in the ensuing months, he believed until recently that he was on the road to recovery. “However, recent tests have revealed that the cancer has returned,” Krauthammer wrote. “There was no sign of it as recently as a month ago, which means it is aggressive and spreading rapidly. My doctors tell me their best estimate is that I have only a few weeks left to live. This is the final verdict. My fight is over.” Rupert Murdoch, executive chairman of Fox News and its parent company, 21st Century Fox, said Krauthammer has been a giant of journalism and a key part of the channel’s success. “Charles has been a profound source of personal and intellectual inspiration for all of us at Fox News,” Murdoch said. “His always principled stand on the most important issues of our time has been a guiding star in an often turbulent world, a world that has too many superficial thinkers vulnerable to the ebb and flow of fashion, and a world that, unfortunately, has only one Charles Krauthammer. “His words, his ideas, his dignity and his integrity will resonate within our society and within me for many, many years to come,” Murdoch added. Fox News viewers will undoubtedly miss Krauthammer’s formidable intellect and ability to analyze politics and politicians with a cerebral wit and keen charm. As the dean of “The Fox News All Stars,” the panel of pundits who break down headlines and events nightly on Fox News Channel’s top-rated “Special Report,” Krauthammer could be counted on to make viewers think, question and even chuckle. Krauthammer was on his way to greatness in the medical field when he veered first into policy, and then into journalism. After medical school, he became chief psychiatry resident at Massachusetts General Hospital, where he studied depression and published ground-breaking findings in top medical journals. But in 1978, he took a job in the Carter administration directing planning in psychiatric research and later served as a speech writer for Vice President Walter Mondale. It was in the nation’s capital that Krauthammer trained his mind and talents on political analysis and began penning columns for The New Republic, Time magazine and finally the Washington Post. In 1985, he won journalism’s top prize for his weekly political commentary. In his sobering farewell, Krauthammer said he is “grateful to have played a small role in the conversations that have helped guide this extraordinary nation’s destiny.” “I leave this life with no regrets,” Krauthammer wrote. “It was a wonderful life – full and complete with the great loves and great endeavors that make it worth living. I am sad to leave, but I leave with the knowledge that I lived the life that I intended.”

I was personally devastated to learn about this news from Dr. Charles Krauthammer.  Charles has been an inspiration to me for decades; long before he joined Fox News.  He was a life-long Democrat, who worked for the Carter administration and was a speech writer for then VP Walter Mondale.  Later, he changed his political/philosophical persuasions after the election of Ronald Reagan and witnessed the successes of the “Reagan Revolution.”  Charles said of that transformation that he simply analyzed the facts, and if he was to be intellectually honest, that he’d have to change his belief system entirely.  Charles would go on to become a Pulitzer prize winner, and was a syndicated columnist for The Washington Post..  What a life he has lived indeed!  You are in our prayers…as are your wife and son, during this extremely difficult time.  Thank you Charles for sharing your wisdom and inspiration.  You’re a national treasure, and are already sorely missed.
