Fox News Loses Ratings Battle to Competitor Newsmax for the First Time Ever

44

Keep it up, Team Trump. Fox News has betrayed President Trump and his supporters, and they must pay a big price for doing so. And President Trump is right. Most of the anchors on Fox News are not watchable. It is Hannity, Tucker, Levin, and a few others who are keeping this sinking ship afloat.

Fox News Loses Key Ratings Battle to Competitor Newsmax for the First Time Ever

By Patriot Project, December 9, 2020

Fox News Channel was outpaced by competitor Newsmax TV for the first time ever on Monday.

In the coveted 25- to 54-year-old demographic, “Greg Kelly Reports” on Newsmax outrated “The Story with Martha MacCallum” on Fox by a narrow margin, CNN reported.

Kelly averaged 229,000 viewers among the demographic and MacCallum averaged 203,000 viewers in the narrow but still significant milestone in the cable news industry.

“We’re here to stay,” Newsmax CEO Christopher Ruddy said Tuesday. “The ratings are showing that.”

The ratings win comes after President Donald Trump voiced his displeasure with Fox in a tweet over the weekend.

“@FoxNews daytime is not watchable. In a class with CNN & MSDNC,” he tweeted.

“Check out @OANN, @newsmax and others that are picking up the slack. Even a boring football game, kneeling and all, is better!”

Fox News prime-time stars carried the network to its highest-rated November last month, with both Tucker Carlson and Sean Hannity breaking ratings records, the Washington Examiner reported.

Laura Ingraham also held on to her title as the highest-rated female host in cable news.

“Additionally, FNC’s entire primetime lineup remains up double-digits year over year, with ‘Tucker Carlson Tonight’ seeing increases of 49 percent with total viewers and 85 percent with A25-54, ‘Hannity’ up 39 percent in total viewers and 89 percent with A25-54, and ‘The Ingraham Angle’ experiencing a 34 percent increase with total viewers and 80 percent with A25-54,” Fox said in a news release.

Newsmax’s viewership has jumped from 58,000 viewers on weekdays to 568,000 average viewers following the 2020 election.

“They don’t know what to do with all of us,” Newsmax television personality Grant Stinchfield said.

We’re killing it here on Newsmax with a tactic they’ve never tried. It’s called the truth, the stone-cold truth, and once you get a taste of it, you will never tolerate being lied to again.”

Fox Corporation’s chief financial officer Steve Tomsic said that Fox has “stood the test of time.”

The Truth Must be Told

Your contribution supports independent journalism

Please take a moment to consider this. Now, more than ever, people are reading Geller Report for news they won't get anywhere else. But advertising revenues have all but disappeared. Google Adsense is the online advertising monopoly and they have banned us. Social media giants like Facebook and Twitter have blocked and shadow-banned our accounts. But we won't put up a paywall. Because never has the free world needed independent journalism more.

Everyone who reads our reporting knows the Geller Report covers the news the media won't. We cannot do our ground-breaking report without your support. We must continue to report on the global jihad and the left's war on freedom. Our readers’ contributions make that possible.
