What MSNBC, CNN and FOX are covering as the virtual Democratic convention kicks off on Monday at 9p ET. pic.twitter.com/17FXBcwUpr— Sahil Kapur (@sahilkapur) August 18, 2020
As expected, Fox is running with Sean Hannity's show instead of the Dem convention programming. All these patriotic moments you're seeing on CNN and MSNBC? Fox viewers are hearing how "weak" "bunker Biden" is pic.twitter.com/01OdSowunF— Brian Stelter (@brianstelter) August 18, 2020
Hannity chose this life, so no one felt sorry for him, but the stress took its toll. “Hannity would tell you, off-off-off the record, that Trump is a **** crazy person,” one of his associates said. Another friend concurred: “Hannity has said to me more than once, ‘he’s crazy.’”
Surprisingly for a news channel (albeit a partisan new channel like all American news channels seem to be), it even gives the main entertainment networks a run for their money in prime time.
TBH, critics of Fox News have been making the same point for 15-20 years now and it doesn't seem to have made any difference to Fox News' reach, popularity, or extreme profitability.
It's very desirable to advertisers who want to target products to older people. In a similar way that Sky Sports Golf is desirable for golf equipment/holiday companies. There's no point Callaway paying big bucks to advertise in BGT when the number of golfers it picks up would be very small in relation to the cost per viewer.
You really do need to do your research when it comes to viewing figures.... HERE and across the pond.
FOX have been thrashed during Covid. Fox have suffered BIGLY since March. A serious lack of journalism and damage caused by 'hosts' has led to its demise.
CNN has seen nothing but gains since March, often surpassing MSNBC.
CNN are the only real winners here.
Dear Sebastian, I see you are a new member to this forum so I'll be courteous and extend a warm welcome.
Please read people's posts thoroughly and try to understand them and also research conduct your research before launching in some ill-executed reply. The one in question I am replying to with calmness and courtesy, not some aggressive tirade.
First and foremost I didn't claim Fox weren't #1 in the ratings, so you've embarrassed yourself there. Secondly, what I posted was factual. Read below, go calm down dear changes channels.
It is widely reported that CNN has gained BIGLY during this pandemic as viewers turn to channels who report the news, not fiction as FOX tends to do when there are non journalists at the anchor desk.
Stay Calm, Stay Safe, Do Your Research.
FOX have taken a thrashing during this time! For goodness sake, read the articles I have posted. Sure. Fox still reigns but numbers are down as more and more people turn to networks that report the news, not pedal crap! Open you eyes.
My fellow forum member - you are not worthy of conversing with further.
