It's fact vs fiction. Bullshit vs the truth. It's exactly whats being argued here. Watching Shepard Smith debunk much of the crap we've seen posted while exposing Sean Hannity as a troll, makes for fun viewing.

I'm a little bit curious about Fox's ratings.

I'm wondering if perhaps they may have had a recent downturn due to the public's reaction to the craziness coming from the White House. Or, are they
going the MSNBC route and exploring the possibility of expanding their fan base.

Hear me out:

MSNBC has gone and hired former Republicans as media contributors or on-air
personalities; of which a few have become former Republicans, such as conservative political commentator Charles Sykes. And also hiring former
Dubya communications director Nicolle Wallace, who recently renounced her
political affiliation to the GOP, along with Steve Schmidt, who renounced his
Republican affiliation on air.

My theory is that perhaps Fox is trying to counter due to possible dips in their ratings. But it could also be that they are changing course and have decided to speak truth.........nah, who am I kidding.

October 2018 Ratings: Fox News Channel Averaged More Total Viewers Than CNN and MSNBC Combined

FNC marked 28 consecutive months as the No. 1 basic cable network in total day with nearly 1.7 million total viewers for the month of October 2018, and the 5th consecutive month as the most-watched basic cable network in prime time with more than 2.8 million total viewers, according to Nielsen data. The No. 1 ranking in prime time is impressive considering how sports-driven the month of October is. But this news cycle is unlike any other we have seen.

Fox News was the most-watched network in cable news for the 202nd consecutive month. It also beat CNN and MSNBC combined in total viewers in prime time, and across the 24-hour day.




Remember that even with these "high" ratings, quite a bit less than 1% of Americans watch it every day, meaning that less than .5% of Americans watch CNN and MSNBC.

I find that to be the best news I've heard in a while.

Do Right, Be Right. :)

Hey Six, did you happen to notice what I say there at the end? Yes, Fox leads
in the ratings race, but, as you correctly stated, how many Americans actually watch? Anyway, it's kind of disconcerting that Fox, with it's particular brand of "news" delivery, is leading the pack.

The reality of the situation out there across the country is more important,
the wallet. The economy and the tariffs, healthcare and the cost of education
are the all-important issues of the day. No amount of lying will change that for the better. It takes actual action, besides who's in charge. If I was running for office, I would make sure that people would know that one true thing - who's in charge now of the federal government.

I weep for this country.

They're all lying and riling people up.

Don Lemon just recently came out and said extremely racist things about white people the other day and he's still got a job. If you substituted "white" out of his comments with any other race he'd already be on the unemployment line.

Nobody should be watching any of that shit from either side. I'm glad that only 2% of Americans on any given day dedicate any time to them.

Fox Host Bret Baier Backflips Away From Carlson And Hannity, Insists He’s Not Like Them

Fox News’ “Special Report” host Bret Baier wants to make it very clear that he isn’t like his hack co-workers at Fox, okay?

Amid shockwaves over Chris Wallace’s departure to CNN, Baier on Sunday tried to distance his show from fellow Fox host Tucker Carlson, who regularly peddles pro-Trump talking points and misinformation in service of the ex-president.

A Simple Way To Pay Off Your House ASAP
“I tell people that the biggest, the loudest critics of Fox are not ones who watch Fox and see the difference between ‘Special Report’ and Sean Hannity and Tucker Carlson,” Baier said during an appearance on Fox’s “Media Buzz” program. “I mean, anybody who watches sees the difference.”

Asked about bombshell revelations of Hannity plus Laura Ingraham and “Fox and Friends” co-host Brian Kilmeade’s panicked texts to then-White House chief of staff Mark Meadows on Jan. 6, Baier lamented how “it really stinks” to have to cover news about Fox “because I’m trying to never be the news, and trying to report and cover things fairly.”

Major US TV service dumps pro-Trump channel OAN

Subscription television service DirecTV has decided not to renew its contract with One America News Network (OAN), an ultra-conservative, conspiratorial US channel that backs former US president Donald Trump.

DirecTV, which is owned by US telecom giant AT&T, did not provide further details for its decision.

OAN is one of the new ultra-conservative players in television news that are trying to nibble away at the market share of Fox News.

Like Newsmax or Real America's Voice, they refused to recognize Donald Trump's defeat in the November 2020 presidential election, instead relaying unsubstantiated conspiracy theories about electoral fraud that were propagated by the former president and his supporters.

Tucker Carlson Promotes Putin Propaganda — Seconds After Insulting Joe Scarborough’s Calling Out ‘Putin Propagandists’

Tucker Carlson insulted Joe Scarborough Tuesday night after airing a clip in which the Morning Joe host expressed frustration with the Biden’s Administration handling of Russia-Ukraine tensions and called out “Putin Propagandists” here in America — likely referring to Carlson himself.

But mere seconds after playing the clip of Scarborough deriding media hosts promoting Putin propaganda, the Fox News host did precisely that: he openly promoted foreign policy propaganda that benefits Russian President Vladimir Putin as Russian troops amass on the Ukrainian border while undermining any value that members of NATO have at the same time. Huh.
