Fox News Ratings Tank And Fall Behind CNN, MSNBC After Coverage of Capitol Riots
Cable news network continues to alienate its viewers
Fox News ratings have taken another plunge to third place behind competitors CNN and MSNBC following its coverage of the U.S. Capitol riots last week.
Fox News in the past has dominated viewers across most demographics.
Since they have shifted narratives away from its conservative viewership, it has taken a turn for the worst.
Between Jan. 4 and Jan. 10, Fox News garnered 1.7 million daily viewers, according to the latest rating data reported by Nielsen
But that fell short of CNN, which saw 2.8 million daily viewers.
Meanwhile, left-wing outlet MSNBC garnered 2.3 million daily viewers.
Fox News saw huge success in 2020 and ended up being the top cable news network in the fifth year ratings in a row.
The network also fell short in primetime viewers, with 3.2 million average viewers.
Meanwhile, CNN saw 4.2 million viewers.
MSNBC also saw 3.8 million viewers in primetime.
Fox News faced backlash after they called Arizona for then-candidate Joe Biden as many said early results were too close to call.
Trump also blasted Fox News numerous times and pushed his followers to seek out alternative news sources.
The President also criticized the network for failing to do enough to help elect him and other Republicans.
"Many will disagree, but @FoxNews is doing nothing to help Republicans, and me, get re-elected on November 3rd," the president said from his official Twitter account.
Trump's account has since been banned from Twitter after rioting at the U.S. Capitol.
In September, Conservative radio host Glenn Beck exposed the huge levels of control George Soros has over the establishment media, revealing that the far-left billionaire even has far-reaching influence at Fox News.
