For the primary time in 20 years, each MSNBC and CNN beat Fox Information in scores
There were a number of important political events last week. Donald Trump gave a blunt speech in Dalton Georgia on Monday. On Tuesday, the Americans are eagerly awaiting the results of the Senate race in Georgia.
On Wednesday, viewers tuned in to see Trump loyalists in the House and Senate pose the election challenge. When the fight began, a crowd of Trump supporters stormed the U.S. Capitol.
And when people wanted to hear about the chaos in Washington DC, they turned to CNN and MSNBC. Justin Baragona of The Daily Beast writes, “Both CNN and MSNBC beat Fox News in all ratings on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Previously, according to Nielsen, it was more than 20 years ago on 9/24/2000 that Fox News lost the total number of viewers to both networks. “
Baragona continues: “On Friday, all of Fox’s primetime programs ranked 3rd in the total viewer and demo. This includes Tucker Carlson, who drew 3.36 million viewers and 535,000 viewers in the demo. Chris Hayes had a total of 3.74 million and 706,000 in the demo and Anderson Cooper had 4.855 million and 1.44 million in the demo. “
For several years now, CNN and MSNBC have divided the nation’s more liberal viewers. Fox, on the other hand, has remained largely unchallenged as a conservative news source.
However, the conservative media landscape has changed under Donald Trump. While Fox is very supportive of the president, he’s not getting 100% loyalty from the network. Because of this, Trump has urged his supporters to adjust to Newsmax and OAN.
