Her ratings were low, particularly since MSNBC’s ratings have been climbing since Trump came into office. From another article:
“Though 2017 is pacing to be another record-breaker for the cable news networks, with MSNBC seeing its ratings climb the most, Van Susteren’s hour has been one of the few MSNBC shows to get little attention.
During the second quarter, her 6 p.m. show averaged a ho-hum 980,000 viewers, including a mediocre 207,000 adults in the 25-54 demo. Those kind of numbers would have been great for MSNBC a couple years ago, but now they’re pacing well below originals of most of the MSNBC weekday lineup – even trailing repeats of Rachel Maddow and Lawrence O’Donnell.”
Fox constantly gets slammed for not being fair and balanced, when, if anybody watched it, they’d see there are almost as many liberal contributors on every panel discussion as there are conservatives. Actually, I have a LOT of Republican friends unable to watch anymore now that Richard Fowler, Maria Harf and others are so frequently on.
Yes, Progressives are tuning more into MSNBC this year….but I was surprised by this information that I had not heard: MSNBC recently hired conservative columnist Bret Stephens and, last week, gave a show to fellow right-winger Hugh Hewitt.
I’m a big fan of Bret Stephens…Hewitt’s not bad, either. But….I can’t watch MSNBC.
Rupert Murdock’s daughters-in-law are particularly liberal, one having worked with Hillary, and their husbands and themselves being huge liberal contributors….think they’d risk Fox’s financial success for their ideology?
