For the first time since 2001, MSNBC’s Morning Joe has beaten Fox and Friends in the ratings game. This is an average of the week and not just one day. Hard to believe but true. For sure News Max and OANN are gaining eyeballs big time. Watching Mika preen over the nonsensical Joe Scarborough in the AM on a regular basis would take me over the top. For a refresher:
and I am sure Joe hasn’t helped the process.
Fox will still claim the mantle for the top show with Tucker Carlson but the height of his popularity has deflated significantly:
But it’s not just cable news that has had a change in readership:.
In the days after the election, conservative favorites like Breitbart, Drudge Report and Real Clear Politics began to lose traffic share to Newsmax and Gateway Pundit, according to data from web analytics company SimilarWeb. (The site has some interesting facts and worth a look but you will have to fill out some info)
- Last week, Newsmax overtook Breitbart to become the most visited right-leaning news site.
- TV ratings for Newsmax have surged — marquee host Greg Kelly has recently drawn as many as 1 million viewers a night — as President Trump continues to urge followers to abandon Fox News.

So far, Fox has not indicated any plans on changing its way if any tweets are an indication.
On Wednesday morning’s edition of the Fox News morning program, of which Trump is a regular viewer and fairly frequent guest, Kilmeade praised Team Trump’s
thus-far-fruit-and-merit-less legal maneuvers but then delivered his key advice along with a helping of bad news.
“I think it’s going to, in the country’s best interest, if he starts coordinating on the virus, starts coordinating with security with the Biden team,” Kilmeade continued. “And just brief them, because, on the virus, we’re going to be able to get this out as soon as two weeks. We need to coordinate on the transportation and implementation, and you’ll see how thorough the planning has been so we don’t drop the ball in a little while.”
Not sure conservatives want to hear this spin on reality at this point and are not willing to wave the white flag yet. Especially with the two senate races in Georgia coming up.
