In June and July, Fox News was the highest-rated television channel in the prime-time hours of 8 to 11 p.m. Not just on cable. Not just among news networks. All of television. The average live Fox News viewership in those hours outstripped cable rivals like CNN, MSNBC and ESPN, as well as the broadcast networks ABC, CBS and NBC, according to Nielsen.
In June and July, there was absolutely no other place on television or in the press to hear the truth about the riots and the COVID-mania. People want to see their daily reality on the news. Truth sells.
But all these news companies are willingly sacrificing profit in service of ideology. I wish it were about money but it’s so much worse than that.
