Fox gloats about CNN while losing its audience too

The rule on rocks is pretty simple. If you live in a glass house, don't throw them. Fox News must believe its walls are plexiglass.

The network ran a story, "CNN hemorrhaging viewers since Trump left office, down nearly 50% in key measurables."

Not mentioned in the story was the precipitous departure of conservative viewers from the Fox audience.

Fox won Election Night bigly.

Variety reported, "Looking at the individual network breakdown for the 8-11 p.m. time frame, Fox News drew by far the largest audience with 13.6 million viewers. CNN came second with just over 9 million, followed by MSNBC with 7.3 million. ABC managed to topple NBC in the broadcast race, scoring 6.1 million viewers to the latter’s 5.6 million. CBS ended up with an audience of 4.3 million, while Fox trailed the pack with 3.3 million."

Then Fox News called Arizona prematurely and failed to call Trump's big wins in Ohio and Texas. 

Its audience drop the next night was yuge. It went from No. 1 to No. 3 overnight. Since then, the network has struggled to work its way back. Firing Chris Stirewalt and the rest of the election night crew was a start.

The Daily Mail reported, "Fox Corp. CEO Lachlan Murdoch recently spoke at Morgan Stanley's Technology, Media and Telecom Conference where he addressed reports that Fox News' total-day and prime-time ratings as of January dropped 13% since the election.

"He said Fox News audience was 'disappointed with the election results' but suggested the company is turning around the ratings hit it took after the November election."

The Pentagon's war with Tucker Carlson has helped restore some credibility for him while making over the military to appeal to the woke crowd. Maybe there is a secret deal. More likely the military PR unit is run by chowderheads. Never underestimate the amount of incompetence in government.

And there are morons in the Murdoch Empire as well. Fox running a story about CNN losing viewers without mentioning its own ratings was an invitation for mockery.

Fox reported, "CNN has been hemorrhaging viewers since former President Trump left office, losing roughly half of its audience in key measurables since January following a brief post-Election Day spike.

"CNN averaged 2.5 million primetime viewers from Nov. 4, the day following the presidential election, through Inauguration Day on Jan. 20. But viewers fled the liberal network once President Biden took office, and CNN has averaged only 1.6 million primetime viewers from Jan. 21 through March 15."

The story took a shot at CNN's media critic, noting, "Longtime broadcaster Ted Koppel famously mocked CNN’s Brian Stelter to his face back in 2018, telling the network’s media pundit that 'CNN’s ratings would be in the toilet without Donald Trump.'

"Stelter shook his head in disagreement, but it turns out that Koppel was onto something."

But Fox too is hemorrhaging viewers in the post-Trump era. Fox is just too chicken excrement to mention it. How hard would it be to insert a sentence that says, hey, we lost 13% of our audience, too?

Credibility is all a news organization has. Fox has a long way to go before it runs out of credibility like the New York Times and Washington Post have done. But stories like this one show Fox is hellbent on catching up.

    I thought this guy was suppose to be smart. While Fox News viewers were obviously disappointed with the election results, the reason viewers turned the channel was the election REPORTING.

  2. We were pleased with the election results, just not Fox's reporting. And the results were thrown out with paper and electronic ballot box stuffing.

  7. The fox is rotting from the head down.

    Fox business couldn’t get rid of Lou Dobbs fast enough. He was worth watching - a Trump supporter and MAGA endorser.

  8. I used to enjoy some Tucker but it just gets too depressing. Still watch highlights. Loved me some Lou, but also head banging. Now he's gone. It's gotten to the point that all I do seek out is a few blogs and a few aggregate sites. The rest, I don't give an excrement about!!!

    2. Get involved in election integrity. That’s what I’ve done. It’s good for the soul amd time well spent, unlike watching Fox. We have an unbelievable number of talented volunteers who are going to work to make sure we have fair elections, at least in our county. I suspect this is going on all over the country.

    And their names are James and Lachlan, who took advantage of a minor scandal to oust Dad.

  11. Google pay 390$ reliably my last paycheck was $55000 working 10 hours out of consistently on the web. My increasingly youthful kinfolk mate has been averaging 20k all through continuous months and he works around 24 hours reliably. I can't trust how direct it was once I attempted it out. This is my essential concern...:) For more info visit any tab on this site Thanks a lot GOOD LUCK.........http://kutt.it/o4TcEx

  17. Another fine example of how "idiotology triumphs over truth". If Diogenes was around today he would not be able to find a single honest man/woman/non-binary/cis-gender/etc, etc. etc in the "Yellow Stream Media.

    Back in the 1970's we were all told that "violence was as American as apple pie". Then is was not true but today it is with a twist. "Violence with Lying is American as apple pie." Care for a slice?

  18. FOREX INVESTMENT I never believed my life will change in
    such a manner, i saw a review on a page about Mrs Linda mary and before then i have never risk money doing
    anything online with anybody because i think i was so wise and
    never want to be cheated, but when i contacted him and he's
    explained everything to me concerning trading and the profit i
    can make within a week i was convinced to give a trial and
    why i risked to invest 500$ was because i don't need to send
    him the money but to create and fund my trading account all
    by myself and give him the access to manage my trading
    account and i made a withdrawals of $8,300 in a week, please
    i am very happy to introduce all friends and family to invest in
    themselves and there family. Instead of looking for other evil
    ways to make money or to increase there worth in life thanks
