Morning Joe beats Fox and Friends first time in 20 years



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:

Mika Brzezinski said “My parents found me very difficult to educate”

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.

    Kilmeade surprises me….Everything is planned…whatever Biden knows isn’t going to change that. The vaccines, how we’re getting them, etc., is arranged. Not sure Kilmeade’s ever said anything remotely left-leaning, so I wouldn’t be too hard on him for this; he was misinformed, in my opinion…the transition isn’t going to be hurt if Biden doesn’t know 4000000 vaccines are going to Cedars Sinai Hospital in January. THey’re going there anyway.

    Fox made a business decision to turn away from Trump and alienate its base and it is hard to see how Fox can recover from this huge mistake. For a long time they were the only conservative station out there but now there are alternatives and I think they will be lost in the shuffle if they are fighting for liberal viewers in the future.

      I never quite understood their “fair and balanced” schlep. What that boiled down to was screeching Democrats shouting down their opponents, snarky opinion hosts, and producers who think they have to ‘splain it to us. I don’t want “balance” handed to me on their platter. Just give me the news, I’ll sort it out for myself. If Fox flushes, no problem insofar as I’m concerned.

        Thats my read on it…. I don’t need Kilmeade to tell me how he “feels” or believes….yapping dogs make about as much sense as Fox as of late.

        I don’t mind Fair and Balanced…I like the give/take of good conversation. And that’s what these shows are for…they’re news, somewhat, but mostly they’re known to be mostly opinion….and as CNN is so disgustingly and even hilariously leftwing, I honor some of the thinking behind FOX’s panel discussions from both sides.
        Sadly, Kilmeade will prove right, probably. And there probably isn’t anyone who wanted Trump to win MORE than Kilmeade, from the way he’s always talked. Until Trump’s legal team ‘s appeals stop being turned down, and until we see the difference in Biden and Trump’s votes is low enough that Trump can finally overcome a few states with the TRUTH about their horrid voting fraud, then hope is waning….Judges keep turning down Trump’s appeals, Georgia is going to certify after their count went to Biden again today (which I also think was fraud, by the way), so……..we need to start to fight HARD for Georgia’s senate seats.

      Steve….do you see people like MacCallum, Baier, Hume, Hirt, Tucker, Benson, York, Laura, Sean, Pavlich, Dagen, Gutfeld, etc etc., and still believe FOX made a decision not to show all sides, but to alienate its base? I’m not totally disagreeing with you but a lot of those people are very strong, bright, articulate conservatives……

    So, the left media accuses Trump of non-existent crimes for 4 years and the supposedly non-left media rolls over like homosexual puppy dogs for an election that even cave spiders in Australia know was unbelievably bogus. Not only a bogus election, but so bogus that if it flies, America is No More. There will be No America. No borders no country, No valid election process and you’re no better than North freakin Korea. And if the election is righted but thousands of people working this felony are not put in jail, then America will be hanging by a thread and the skin of its teeth for yet another 4 years.

    If I watched this media garbage, I’d be lots more upset about this than if I watched sports only to have that whole experience stolen by dumbass thug Africans. Haven’t watched that for decades either.

      It is hard for me to believe that in the end the Suoremes will be willing to start a civil war and end up with the cities aflame. They think the GOPers will be willing to absorb the blow. But I will keep the flame alive… its not over until the dance ends.

    Well, Biden may have lost Michigan if those two canvassers’ rescinding their Wayne County certification stands.
    Interesting times.

    One of the things floating around in the back of my head is this: wasn’t Lifezette set up by Laura Ingraham? It seems to have made a Drudge-like left lurch since 3 November.

    While never getting the FOX and Fools thing I the morning It filled a space which is now devoted to quiet introspection of the day before and the day ahead of me… well as checking out several blog sites. The forced laugh a minute Doocey and book selling Kilmead should open a bagel shop somewhere in Jersey. Good riddance.

    P.S. Hey Kilmeade how about getting your man Biden to unveil his secret plan for beating the virus so people can go back to work filling spots on his soon to be available 10 million green jobs.
    We had shovel ready now green so what clever name will the other Irishman Harris call her non-existing jobs in her second term?

      I am glad to hear Peter you are now operating from “the zone.” I am sure it has brought more clarity to this bizarre move of America. I can hardly wait to pay 5 bucks a gallon. I am sure the sail on my bike will take me to my destination,.

      Our radio station yanked Kilmeades show and replaced it with Prager.

      Now, if James Murray (Head of the Secret Service) assigns mostly black agents to protect Biden, Jill better start following him around like a puppy because the Camel will have a keen eye on that unfortunate accident that will propel her into the driver’s seat. The question, though …. how could a Harris presidency be worse than an Obama for eight years? Do degrees of worseness really matter when you’re living in the bottom of a porta-potty?

        I wonder how many would be willing to take a bullet for him. I doubt he will last long anyway and you make a good point. How much lower can the sewer run…. America is really in for a taste of “wokeness.”

        Off topic kinda:
        Speaking of Porta Potties (see above) as a high school, club and travel baseball ⚾️ umpire I have made more than my share of visits to the aforementioned Porta Potty dotting the parks and fields and made the following observations: The PP companies ( pun intended) as a rule service them once every 7-10 days leaving a service record posted on an inside wall. In white communities, (racist) you will see at 10 days after a servicing a homeless person can still eat off the floor (insensitive). In your dark neighborhoods (racist) day one after servicing any sane person would rather poop 💩 in his pants rather than even urinate in a Potty that in addition to pampers, household garbage, has you know what decorating the floor and walls with a stench alone that would blow the door off the unit; so bad a Muslim would think long and hard before using it for a foot bath. Is this a result of cultural differences or one side just not giving a 💩?
