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

Opinion/Analysis: Rachel Maddow’s 17 Most Audacious and Paranoid Russia Hoax Lies

This list of Rachel Maddow’s most audacious, reckless, and dangerous lies surrounding the Russia Collusion Hoax was compiled by the Nation’s Aaron Maté. This is his work, his effort, and well worth your time if you want to understand just how recklessly Maddow deliberately misled her audience for two years and why her ratings have now collapsed by double digits. Because MSNBC is an openly left-wing news out, basically leftist talk radio with pictures, I don’t spend much energy critiquing it. If you are open about your biases and personal beliefs, go with God, let’s have a debate. The toxic poison in our media ecosystem comes from outlets like CNN, the Washington Post, NBC News, and the New York Times… Outlets that pose as objective when they are actually to the left of MSNBC. This Maddow thing, though, is something altogether different. Bias is fine — lying, deceiving, misleading, fear-mongering with fake news, and abusing your perch on a major cable news network is not okay. I’m a big fan of openly partisan news outlets, but who in their right mind would continue to watch or listen to someone who lied with such shameless abandon? Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity are not the top guys on radio (and in Hannity’s case, the top guy on cable news) because they tell us what we want to hear. We trust them. They do not lie to us. And if they get something wrong (which is not very often), it is always a mistake made in good faith and it is always corrected. But as you will see below, Maddow did not just spend the last two years spreading serial lies and paranoia, she is now lying about her lying. For instance, even though we have the video to prove otherwise, a couple of weeks ago Maddow tried to gaslight her audience into believing she “refused to let myself think about” the compromising video tapes (that don’t exist) we were told Putin had of President Trump. Maté backs up each item on his list with devastating video … and I do mean devastating. Rachel Maddow makes Sen. Joe McCarthy and Father Coughlin sound like Plato. Click here to continue…

Wow..  If you watch MSNBC, and especially Rachel Maddow, you really need to click on the above and watch these videos..  Rachel is total garbage.  No wonder her ratings are dropping by double digits.  People, even the most rabid anti-Trump liberals suffering from Trump Derangement Syndrome, are slowly realizing their trust in her reporting has been misplaced.

Opinion: Gutfeld on MSNBC saying Trump is guilty of workplace violence

According to the hair-on-fire media out there chasing ambulances down Pennsylvania Avenue, there’s been a report of workplace violence in a large white residence. Commenting on President Trump firing officials at the Homeland Security Department, a guest on MSNBC said: “What we talked about was a possible analogy between what we’re seeing in the president and studies of violence and acting out, particularly workplace violence…. The question we have to ask ourselves, from a behavioral sense, is are we watching a president essentially on his way to what we call a flash point, and are we beginning to see him act out in the form of purging and mass firing and completely not listening to any logic? “Are we essentially watching a workplace violence incident play out at the highest level of our government, and is he acting out now, and where does this go if I’m right about that?” That might be the most insane thing ever said on MSNBC – and they employ Chris Matthews. You wonder why America thinks the media is less trustworthy than lawn darts? It’s because the media seriously entertain ideas like that. Firing someone is now workplace violence. Maybe it feels like that for nonskilled people in the media, who know they can’t be employed anywhere else, except maybe a carnival dunk tank. They never get fired, they only fail up the primetime lineup. Until they get jobs running CNN. Yet these are the same clowns who lied that President Trump called immigrants “animals,” when he was talking about the MS-13 criminal gang. How predictable: these goofs were more offended over calling killer thugs “animals” than by the acts by the gangs themselves. But that’s the media’s way of operating. Everything is a crisis, except the actual crisis. We’ve all had a friend who – when the booze ran out at a party – would drink from abandoned cups and polish off the Listerine. That’s the media. With the collusion keg empty, they’re now desperately looking for anything to numb the pain. So we’re back to President Trump’s personality. He’s mean! Unstable! When he doesn’t like a situation, he changes it! Did you hear? He fires people! I once worked for somebody like that. In fact, she fired me. But that’s what bosses do in the real world. The real world. The media should check it out sometime. It’s really the only show in town and they can’t stand it, because they wouldn’t last a minute.

Agreed..  You really can’t make this stuff up, folks.  I saw the video clips of these morons on MSNBC actually saying this.  Unreal..  The above was adapted from Greg Gutfeld’s monologue on “The Five” on April 9, 2019.

Rachel Maddow’s ratings suffer after Mueller report determined no collusion

MSNBC’s biggest star, Rachel Maddow, has been flailing in viewership since Special Counsel Robert Mueller officially concluded his investigation into the alleged Russian interference in the 2016 election. Maddow had seen a rating surge since President Trump took office, offering extensive coverage on the Russia investigation for the past two years. However, her viewership has taken a dive since Mueller handed his report to the Department of Justice last Friday. The report, according to a letter to Congress released on Sunday by Attorney General Bill Barr, concluded that there was no collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign. “The Rachel Maddow Show” saw an average 13 percent decrease in viewership comparing her ratings Monday through Wednesday this week versus last week — Maddow lost nearly a whopping 500,000 viewers on Monday’s show following the release of Barr’s letter compared to her previous Monday show. She also saw a 15 percent decrease in the 25-52 demo audience. The MSNBC primetime lineup suffered as a whole this week, averaging 2.46 million viewers versus the 2.83 million from last week. President Trump took to Twitter on Thursday morning to mock MSNBC and CNN for their ratings struggle this week. “Wow, ratings for ‘Morning Joe,’ which were really bad in the first place, just ‘tanked’ with the release of the Mueller report. Likewise, other shows on MSNBC and CNN have gone down by as much as 50%. Just shows, Fake News never wins!” Trump tweeted. Meanwhile, Fox News Channel has seen a substantial ratings increase since the findings of the Mueller report were publicized. “Hannity” received over 4 million viewers on Monday, which was more than 1 million additional viewers than the previous Monday. Hannity has successfully held onto his momentum, earning 4.3 million viewers on Wednesday night, when he also received a 32 percent increase in the demo from last week. FNC’s other primetime hosts, Tucker Carlson and Laura Ingraham, have also benefited since the Mueller report was issued, averaging a 25 percent increase in viewership during primetime this week. They averaged 3.58 million viewers versus last week’s average of 2.72 million viewers.

One word…karma. Rachel Maddow, for over two years has been pounding the drum of Russia collusion with Trump. And, she’s done it with her self-righteous, sanctimonious, arrogant, elitist, smarmy attitude. What’s ironic is she thinks she’s so smart, and yet she’s spectacularly stupid. And, people are starting to put 2+2 together and see her for who she is.

 

MSNBC: Voters ‘selfishly’ expect Second Amendment rights to ‘stay the same’

The hosts of “MSNBC Live” told viewers on Thursday that President Trump’s support continues to be strong due to an abundance of “selfish” Second Amendment supporters. Co-anchors Stephanie Ruhle and Ali Velshi mulled over the White House’s solid support as the midterm elections near and concluded that self-centered Americans are to blame. “While we could find or do find the president’s constant lying or lawlessness or reprehensible behavior morally unacceptable, a lot of people vote pretty selfishly, and they say, ‘What’s going to give me more money in my pockets?’ ” Ms. Ruhle told billionaire Tom Steyer. “Or what’s going to make abortion illegal, or what’s going to make sure that my Second Amendment rights stay the same, and clearly, that adds up to enough people that the president still has something akin to 40 percent of the electorate in polls,” added Mr. Velshi. Mr. Velshi added that it was “fascinating” but difficult to talk about the kind of voter who demands lawmakers follow the official amendment process when changes to constitutional rights are sought. The Washington Free Beacon noted that Mr. Steyer, who claimed that “80 percent” of Americans are not benefiting from the nation’s economic boom, gave more than $90 million to support Democratic Party causes in 2016.

And this is why MSNBC and CNN have NO clue why their ratings continue to tank.  They simply don’t get it…and by calling voters “selfish,” they’re alienating half of the electorate.  Over 62 MILLION people “selfishly” voted for Donald Trump in 2016; many of them sick and tired of self-righteous, arrogant, and out-of-touch liberal media personalities like these tools over at MSNBC.

MSNBC’s Chris Matthews Mocks Deplorables: Trump ‘Dog-Training These People’

MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews lambasted President Donald Trump on Tuesday for his criticism of NATO defense spending — and casually dropped the charge that Trump’s rallies are “dog training” for his heartland voters. Matthews accused Trump of being more critical of NATO’s defense spending budget than Russian aggression towards Europe before insulting attendees of his recent rally in Great Falls, Montana. “He is taking a Republican Party, a grassroots party that’s spent 60, 70 years leading the war in the Cold War, hating the Russians for all their aggressiveness in the world and taking over the countries on the border and being tyrannical the way they are now and he has those people cheering against Western Europe,” he said. “He’s dog-training these people.” Sahil Kapur, a national political reporter for Bloomberg, told Matthews that President Trump’s statements would have been met with scorn from conservatives if former President Barack Obama had uttered them. “I think President Trump is doing this on a level that would make a lot of Republicans nervous,” he speculated. Turning his attention to President Trump’s supporters, Matthews criticized rally attendees for cheering proposals aimed at giving NATO allies more responsibility of their own security concerns. “They’re not getting paid. They’re not running for anything. Those regular people that show up for a Trump rally are cheering the attacks on our European allies and cheering ‘give a chance to little Putin,’” he complained. Over breakfast in Brussels with NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg on Wednesday, President Trump lamented how the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline may leave Germany and other European countries perilously dependent on Russia for its energy needs. “It is very sad when Germany makes a massive oil and gas deal with Russia, where we’re supposed to be guarding against Russia, and Germany goes and pays out billions and billions of dollars a year to Russia,” the President said. “We’re protecting Germany, we’re protecting France, we’re protecting all of these countries.” “We’re paying a lot of money to protect, this has been going on for decades… it’s very unfair to our country, it’s very unfair to our taxpayers… these countries need to step it up, not over a ten year period, but immediately,” he added. President Trump told NATO allies on Wednesday they should commit to increasing military spending from 2 percent to 4 percent of their GDP by 2024.

Chris Matthews, who suffers from “Trump Derangement Syndrome,” is a nauseating, extreme liberal, sanctimonious, hate-filled, piece of garbage.  He is the old-guard poster child of the meltdown that is happening at MSNBC, and the rest of the dominantly liberal mainstream media.  All he does is make ad hominem attacks on anyone who is a true conservative, Republican, or Trump supporter…and, of course, his pathological fixation on President Trump is beyond silly.  Trump was 100% right to demand that the other NATO member countries pay the 2% of their (infinitely smaller) GDP which they have agreed to contractually for decades.  And, President Trump is not the only President to demand that.  Reagan, Clinton, W, and even Obama demanded the same thing!!  It’s just that Chris doesn’t like Trump.  So, he is attacking him because..well…he’s Trump.  The hypocrisy is breathtaking.  But, Chris the blowhard is not interested in facts; only bloviating.  Tool..

Tone-deaf MSNBC slammed for bringing on Joy Reid to discuss Roseanne Barr’s social media slur

MSNBC provided viewers with one of the most tone-deaf moments in cable news history on Tuesday when Andrea Mitchell asked Joy Reid about a racist tweet that Roseanne Barr sent about former Obama aide Valerie Jarrett. Last month, Reid famously kinda-sorta admitted to writing homophobic slurs that she’d previously insisted were the work of diabolical hackers. On Tuesday, after Barr sent a racist tweet, Mitchell asked Reid – who is in Philadelphia to co-moderate a town hall event – about social media behavior in a moment that was captured by TheWrap’s Jon Levine. Mitchell asked, “What do you have to do on social media to get fired from a top rated show on an American broadcast network?” Reid responded by pointing to the specific language of Barr’s apology, noting that admitting the jab was about Jarrett’s appearance was proof that the message was racist. “That was a very telling part of the apology,” Reid said. “I’m not surprised, this is the kind of humor that Roseanne does.” Following the discovery of the homophobic slurs and intense speculation about her own future, the “AM Joy” host addressed that situation during the April 28 episode of her show that airs every Saturday and Sunday morning. “I genuinely do not believe I wrote those hateful things,” Reid told her viewers, adding, “The person I am now is not the person I was then.” Reid got emotional on the air and admitted it seemed unlikely she was hacked, but that she didn’t recall making the offensive remarks, for which she apologized anyway. She also admitted to making several slurs on Twitter – which makes Tuesday’s question by Mitchell especially ironic. Reid was never punished for her homophobic tweets. Media watchdogs were quick to notice the irony that Reid was used by MSNBC to offer her opinion on Barr. Mediaite columnist Joseph Wulfhsohn wrote, “It’s rich that she’s talking about it with Joy Reid, of all people.” “What the hell does someone have to do to get fired from a network these days? To help me answer this question I’m bringing in Joy Reid & Brian Williams,” Fox News contributor Stephen Miller joked. Upon hearing that ABC had canceled “Roseanne,” pundit Mark Simone wrote, “Looks like the only network Roseanne could work at now is MSNBC, they’ve had a host accused of racist posts, anti-gay posts, and anti-Muslim posts and don’t cancel their show, if they apologize.” BuzzFeed’s Steven Perlberg wrote, “As it happens, it’s been one month and Joy Reid’s hacker — the one who made her old anti-gay blog posts slightly more anti-gay and manipulated the Wayback Machine — remains at large. This morning I asked MSNBC for an update in the investigation, but haven’t heard back.” MSNBC did not immediately respond to request for comment.

Yeah..  Imagine that..lol  MSNBC is a nauseating cesspool of liberal hypocrisy.  And, they’re so totally clueless that, for example, it probably didn’t even occur to Andrea Mitchell just how bad she was stepping in it even asking that loser Joy Reid such a question about Roseanne..   These people have the IQ of a chihuahua.  And, it’d be funny if it weren’t so frightening that so many people actually tune in to MSNBC/NBC for their news/information.  Unreal…
