If there’s anything we’ve learned in the last four years, it’s “go woke, go broke.”
We’ve seen it happen to the NBA, the NFL and the Oscars. So why Fox News thought they were an exception to this rule is beyond me.
Despite all the warning signs, Fox has plunged ahead with alienating its fans. From anchor Chris Wallace’s embarrassing “moderating” at the presidential debates, to Fox’s indefensible call of Arizona for Joe Biden early on election night, the network has sent a clear message to conservatives – they care more about what the liberal media thinks of them than what their fanbase thinks.
And now its time to pay the piper.
The National Pulse reports:
Last Friday’s ratings for the supposedly “conservative” outlet were less than both CNN and MSNBC for the first time in years, according to an internal Fox document containing viewership analytics.
The numbers show that on November 6th, Fox pulled 2,266,000 viewers while CNN saw nearly twice as many at 4,009,000 viewers. Similarly, MSNBC, per Fox’s internal numbers, counted 2,983,000 viewers, beating Fox by over 700,000 viewers.

Sorry @TuckerCarlson and @seanhannity – love your shows! But #FoxNewsIsDead just called an election with pending litigation and before recounts in states with close margins. I’m done watching Fox News and hope their lack of transparency shows in their ratings!
