In the wake of the Trump-Russia collusion media fiasco, it seems Americans are tuning out of left-leaning news sources like CNN and MSNBC, while Fox News consumers are mostly sitting tight.
“CNN’s prime-time ratings dropped a whopping 26 percent in April compared to last year, according to Nielsen Media Research,” The Hill reported on Wednesday.
“MSNBC’s ratings were down 14 percent in April 2019 compared to April 2018, while Fox News’s ratings overall were flat.”
“The sharp decrease for CNN marked its lowest-rated month in total viewers since October 2015.”
Meanwhile, Fox News hosts most of the nation’s top evening news and commentary programs: “The top five shows in cable news were Fox’s ‘Hannity’ with an average of 3.086 million viewers, followed by ‘Tucker Carlson Tonight’ with an average of 2.834 million. MSNBC’s ‘Rachel Maddow Show’ was third with 2.630 million viewers, followed by Fox’s ‘The Ingraham Angle[‘] with 2.455 million viewers and ‘The Five’ with 2.4 million in rounding out the Top-5.”
