Fox News loses it’s #1 cable status to CNN – Main Street Gazette

Fox News loses it’s #1 cable status to CNN

If Rupert Murdoch wants to save Fox News, he better right the ship quickly.

Vox reports:

For the first time in 20 years, Fox News can no longer say it’s the top-rated cable news network. In fact, from Election Day through Biden’s inauguration, Fox not only didn’t finish on top — it also finished behind both CNN and MSNBC in total viewers.

Inauguration day was particularly bad for Fox.

Vox, which is a vicious liberal rag, knows what’s wrong with Fox, and, broken clock-like, they’re surprisingly accurate.  They say “it’s not a coincidence that Fox News’s ratings decline coincided with the disappearance of Trump’s Twitter account, which the former president used relentlessly to promote his favorite Fox opinion hosts and denigrate their competition. And now, without the backing of one of its most influential fans, the network has been left to chart its way through an uncertain future.”

“Fox is a third-place network at this very moment. And that’s something that they are not used to and have not been used to since they started in ’96,” he added. “From basically the end of the Clinton impeachment onward, they have been the No. 1 network, and it’s something they’re used to touting and rubbing in the face of CNN and MSNBC. Inside, there’s a lot of turmoil on that.”

Fox bit the hand that fed them. Now, they’re suffering the consequences.

I watched Fox and recorded shows all the time, until they called Arizona early and started to call sleepy Joe “President elect” early. Basically threw President Trump to the side. Need to get read of CHRIS WALLACE, JUAN WILLIAMS, AND GERALDO RIVERA. Saying Biden speech was the best speech they ever heard. Sounded like they wanted to lick the toe jam between Biden’s toes. Sickening.

Their liberal bias has become very obvious. I did not agree with everything that our president did but he was the first president in my lifetime that truly cared about America and the people of America. Some of your commentators who pretend to be conservatives are far from that and they tell on themselves quite easily with their conversation. I have totally stopped watching Fox News at all hours of the day and so has much of my immediate and extended family. I may watch an occasional clip on YouTube just to see what Tucker is saying otherwise not interested anymore. Sorry to see you go, but there is no reason for me to return. I don’t trust what you have to say anymore. Newsmax is where I get my news now. They are not completely free of bias but at least they provide both sides of the issue.

I have watched Fox News all day long for so many years no more. I do watch a few of my favourites but that’s it I have switched over to newsmax and oan. I am afraid that people who have left Fox will not return because newsmax is great. I guess Fox didn’t think that conservatives would leave but they did And will probably never return to matter what they do

I stopped watching Fox when John Roberts said I am not going to take it anymore —there was a clip of him saying Trump denounce the white supremist today and that was like 2 years ago and then he comes on just a few months ago saying Trump will not denounce white supremacist—he is a liar and I will never watch Fox until he is gone——along with Cavuto, Williams, Brizelle, Jenidia,Smith, boy there are a lot more—I just do not watch Fox anymore–it will never change————

I watch “The Five” and that’s about it on Fox these days. Newmax is very good and seems to lean towards Conservatives. I’ve watched Fox for years and can’t believe they let it fall like this. Turning to the Left is killing them! What I don’t understand is why can’t they see it like we do. They think we are going to change our minds? Don’t think so! 76+ million people want something that is theirs. Why wouldn’t somebody want to cater to their thoughts?

Chris Wallace is suppose to balance it so that people don’t think Fox is racist for paying Williams to be, and act, so ignorant. If they only had Williams it might be considered a racist act to make him be so stupid. So they have two stupid idiots to throw off any indication of racism.

Williams, Harf, all their evil ignorant leftist demons need to go to CNN where they will find friends. Jesse tries to call Juan on his blind stupidity, and most libs featured on FOX are paraded to show their balance, but you do NOT balance with SATAN!!! WHY put more ignorance out there to feed the sheeple. The sheeple are ignorant, drunk, high, unable to discern truth. The truth exists independent of you and me. It is NOT what you choose to believe…it simply is. If we believe lies, we become the victims of incorrect thinking. Broadcast TRUTH!!!

FOX was placed on a pedestal by conservatives. FOX brought in liberal news folks to compete more with other networks. FOX became arrogant and felt snug with their ratings. The Trump followers made FOX and now has destroyed their arrogant empire. I watch Hannity, Tucker, Levine, Greg and the Judge. Stopped watching the 5 because of Juan and the rest of FOX.

Absolutely as to Williams, Wallace, and that little cute fat guy on their financial channel. If I need a break from sanity I can switch over to CNN or MSNBC to darken my mind.
It’s dumbfounding to me that 200 or so Lefty pundits and Rinos think 80 million conservatives should listen to them like gods. If you’re looking for the trash to throw out, they’re raising their hands saying, “Hey, we’re over here!”

I only watch Fox for Tucker, Sean and Laura anyway. Chris Wallace is too smug about issues dealing with Conservatives and he comes off like a loyal Liberal. Juan Williams is a sorry excuse for a liberal. He does noting but whine about how badly he and they are getting picked on. Certainly not about how they could help themselves. Of course he doesn’t have much to work with. Greg is okay but not all that serious. My main favorite is Mark Levin, if you take that man off the air for any reason, I’m leaving for good! I like the other three, but I love Mark.

FOX held a unique marketing position. The ONLY conservative-leaning voice in the media melee. Thank the liberal inheritor Murdoch kids (and wives) for willingly giving up that position to become just one more liberal voice in the also-ran cacophony. Self-inflicted wounds driven by hatred.

They could have kept their Top Spot……BUT, No – they had to sink and dip to being
some Fake Media News and did other dumb stuff, which only hurt them and their
Stupid Ratings, which ALL – News Agencies are So Worried About…… REPORT THE
REAL NEWS WITH NO ADDING OF CRAP TO MAKE IT SENSATIONALIZED IN SOME
WAY OR THE OTHER………..And, Guess What – One Could Just Get A Top Spot, Again.!!

This article states the facts correctly! Fox was always my go to news outlet. Murdoch gave control to his sons(big mistake) and their downward spiral began. With the advent of Newsmax, which has exploded, now Murdoch is realizing that the once popular station made a serious mistake. The likes of Donna, Juan and a long list of never Trumper hosts pushed the network into their dismal standing. If I watch, I watch only, Tucker, Hannity, Dobbs, Laura and Waters. The rest of that ungodly crew can go straight to H E L L.

I still watch a few Fox reporters but not nearly as often as I did. The audacity Fox demonstrated on the first debate with Bully Chris Wallace and the election night coverage with far left Fox reporters just showed conservatives how loyal Fox was to Conservatives. I now watch OAN and Newsmax. You don’t bite the hand that feeds you.

Sorry, as a long timer viewer…Murdoch’s sonny kid ruined it COMPLETELY
No more anything from FoxNews, not even Tucker’s hour can lure us back
We no longer watch any news any more due to Fraudulent issues…lies, back stabbing, not standing up to the truth as a beacon light
No more
It all burned out last few years and we saw it go to the dumps
Thank you for ruining it for the multitudes

My Husband & I were loyal Fox Fans. Then they put on Donna Brazil, a well known cheater and liar. Can’t trust words that come out of her mouth.
So decide the channel could not be trusted with the truth. With Wallace & Williams spouting out lies continuously, and not being called to the carpet for it, added the the disappointment. Fair and balanced use to be the slogan. Not any more.

On 24/7 news around the world, and great historical bits instead of commercials! Fox has gone down since the so called boys and lefty wife s started called the shots! Never watched any other stations cuz I knew I would get the truth from them! The other stations are fed from DC on what to say and how to present it! Their head honchos are related in some way to a person in DC! Get their marching orders from them, all RATS!

Chris Wallace, Jessica Tarlov and a few others, they need to go also! Don’t forget Donna Brazile, the one who cheated and lied during the 2016 debate between Trump and Hillary. She gave Hillary the questions and lied about, got fired and them owned up to the lie. Can’t figure out why Fox hired her and gave her a promotion, I have on thought in mind!
