What would fall faster, a lead balloon or Fox News ratings?

Fox News ratings because the lead balloon is not in the tank for Biden. Rupert Murdoch made the mistake of allowing his liberal son to take over the Fox juggernaut created by the late Roger Ailes.

The secret to Fox News’ dominance was the fact that they were the only major network that leaned to the right. They had no competition.

But, now they have crossed over to the dark side, they have nothing but competition. CNN took both top spots in the daytime Nielson ratings in the  25-54 age demographic.

Anderson Cooper’s show, “AC360,” took the time spot with 604K viewers. Chris Cuomo’s CNN show took the second highest slot. Fox News’ daytime ratings has suffered a 32% loss in viewership. That is over just a three week period. I don’t believe there is any way for them to recover now. CNN should sent the Murdochs flowers for saving their economic lives.

All during the election campaign, Fox polls were wildly out of touch with reality and with few exceptions, the bias against Trump was palatable. The final straw was when they called Arizona for Biden. The vote there is just about 4000 votes now and Trump has a chance to flip the state.

From The Blaze

While Fox News’ viewership dropped, the viewership for CNN and MSNBC increased to near parity. In weekday average daytime viewership, Fox News garnered 1.63 million viewers, CNN received 1.68 million viewers, and MSNBC received 1.71 million viewers.

But despite the precipitous drop in daytime, Fox continues to beat the competition in total numbers of viewers during prime-time hours.

Fox News averaged 2.98 million viewers in prime time, with CNN averaging 2.05 million, and MSNBC seeing an average of 2.18 million viewers.

·.@FoxNews daytime ratings have completely collapsed. Weekend daytime even WORSE. Very sad to watch this happen, but they forgot what made them successful, what got them there. They forgot the Golden Goose. The biggest difference between the 2016 Election, and 2020, was @FoxNews!

President Trump has turned on Fox News after having a good relationship with them in 2016 when they were still fair and balanced. Tucker Carlson and Sean Hannity are still popular but they are still conservative.

Dinosaurs, the whooping crane and Fox news. Perfect together.

  • I use to watch them, they have become washy traitors. What, you kept us busy while others did unreal things. Well its bite you in the ass/ ratings. GO WITH ONE AMERICA NEWS, THEY ARE THE REAL DEAL

  • Fox News has never been truly conservative. They are aligned with the republican establishment, the RINOs if you will. Fox News is equally as conservative as any member of the Bush family: sometimes they give it lip service but they are really just one arm of the political establishment.

  • I would be willing to say murdoch, ryan, brazille, and others should be showed the door and they should issue an apology to the views if they want them back. But then again this is wishful thinking.

  • Does this seem right to you? Follow the talking heads until they say what you want to hear? Wake up people. Truth has NO versions.

  • How many of us been screaming at Fox weekend day crew past couple of years like our crazy grandpas watching baseball? – – – Just waiting for market karma to hit those disingenuous & dishonest ingrates?

    And hey, Leland: this one’s for you, too. We’re sorry u got ur arse kicked by a bunch of soyboyz in Lafayette Square back in June. But u showed even more cowardice by letting that turn you to the dark side bc you want to be liked. Newsflash: YOU AREN’T!

  • Tucker Carlson GONE!
    Hannity GONE!
    Ingraham GONE!

    Even Rush Limbaugh is admitting defeat?
    Lou Dobbs is a weakling.
    I don’t even want to start with Breitbart.

    Why is everyone abandoning Trump?

    • Follow the money… China! It’s easier and a lot cheaper to remove a POTUS than unbolt all the manufacturing machinery and move it back home or to another country. No? Since the virus(?) Amazon’s profit has double while millions of small businesses worldwide have gone under. Buy Made in USA, it not to late yet. but getting closer.

  • “… the bias against Trump was palatable.”

    Umm, I think you mean ‘palpable’. But, come to think of it, I HAVE lost my taste for Fox News.
