Trump Mocks Fox News As Newsmax Sees Ratings Skyrocket: “They forgot the Golden Goose”

Sharing is caring!

President Trump dropped the hammer on Fox News and mocked their daytime ratings collapse on Twitter:

“Fox News daytime ratings have completely collapsed. Weekend daytime even WORSE. Very sad to watch this happen, but they forgot what made them successful, what got them there.”

“They forgot the Golden Goose. The biggest difference between the 2016 Election, and 2020, was Fox News,” he added.

CNN’s media analyst Brian Stelter reports on the rise of Newsmax:

“Before Election Day, Newsmax and OAN were just annoying flies on the Fox elephant’s back. But something dramatic has happened:

“Newsmax’s audience has BALLOONED. Final week of October, the channel averaged 65,000 viewers. Election week: 182,000. Monday: 347,000. Tuesday: 437,000.

“Newsmax is still much smaller than Fox. And this ratings spike may be temporary. But this is the most robust right-wing TV challenge to Fox that I have ever seen.

“Some of Newsmax’s evening shows are attracting 700,000 & 800,000 viewers. A month ago they were lucky to get 100,000!

From CNN:

“Trump still has some ratings power: Here is a new sign that he still has sway among his Fox base. Lately Tucker Carlson at 8pm has been beating Sean Hannity at 9pm, but on Tuesday Trump tweeted that “ballot Corruption will be exposed tonight at 9:00pmE on @SeanHannity.”

Look at the resulting ratings spike: Carlson had 903,000 viewers in the 25-54 demo, Hannity jumped up to 1.35 million, and Laura Ingraham had 904,000. Trump’s tweet seemed to make a big difference.
