For years, Fox News has been the #1 rated news outlet on television.
But since last Tuesday…
Ever since they called Arizona for Joe Biden…
And ever since Murdoch appeared to “backstab” President Trump (according to Trump supporters)…
Fox News’ ratings have plummeted.
Fox News used to be #1 across the board.
But ever since last Tuesday, they’ve been consistently ranking below CNN and MSNBC.
More conservatives than ever are turning to alternatives such as Newsmax.
Online sources like WeLoveTrump are seeing MASSIVE traffic spikes.
Fox News’ ratings are TANKING.
See some of the devastating numbers below:
Geez look at Fox News.

Conservative viewers made FOX News No 1 in ratings. They are CRAPPING on us. We can un-make them No 1 if we WALK AWAY. Murdock sons HATE us. Don't reward them because of Hannity and Tucker. It's the batteted wife syndrome. Don't go back. pic.twitter.com/WTYNQfOpw7

Before Fox News ratings TANKED, they broke a record on Tuesday night.
Fox News had its highest ratings EVER…
They announced that Biden won Arizona, a move many claim was premature.
As of this writing, less than 20,000 votes separate Biden and Trump in Arizona, with an estimated 70,000 votes left to count.
Viewers noticed that Fox News appeared to sour on Trump.
But first, Fox itself has details on its highest ratings ever:
Fox News Channel set another ratings record on Tuesday when it attracted just over 14 million viewers to its election night coverage between 8 p.m. and 11 p.m. ET, making it the most-watched election night coverage in cable news history.
Fox News’ coverage, co-anchored by Bret Baier and Martha MacCallum live from FNC headquarters in New York, outdrew ABC, NBC, CBS and all other cable news networks.
CNN averaged nine million viewers to finish second, followed by MSNBC with 7.3 million viewers. ABC, CBS, NBC and FOX each finished behind the cable news channels.
FNC also topped all competitors among the key demographic of adults age 25-54, averaging nearly six million viewers in the category coveted by advertisers.
Total viewership of Fox News increased by 16% over Election Night in 2016, while the number of viewers in the 25-54 demographic increased by 10%. By contrast CNN’s total viewership dropped 24% from Election Night 2016, while viewership in the 25-54 demographic declined 29%
Fox News Digital had a record-setting day across all key performance indicators, with a more than 100 percent increase in unique devices, video starts, page views and time spent compared to 2016, according to Adobe Analytics and Apple News.
Fox News Digital properties also saw 11.8 million total livestreams during Election Day as FNC and FBN’s coverage was made free for all Americans.
Last month, Fox News Channel wrapped up a record-setting October as the most-watched basic cable network for the 52nd straight month, while “Tucker Carlson Tonight” finished with the highest-rated monthly viewership of any program in the history of cable news.
“Tucker Carlson Tonight” averaged a staggering 5.4 million nightly viewers over October, while “Hannity” averaged 5.1 million nightly viewers. Fox News’ prime-time lineup finished with the highest-rated month in cable news history – beating free TV heavyweights such as ABC’s “The Bachelorette” in the process.
But that victory was short lived.
Ever since Fox appeared to prematurely call Arizona for Biden, Trump supporters were infuriated.
Viewership at Newsmax began to spike.
OANN saw record new users.
Online news websites like WeLoveTrump saw spikes in traffic.
But Fox News saw a decline in viewership, falling behind CNN and MSNBC consistently for the first time in YEARS.
I'm seeing internal numbers that show Fox News' ratings crashed hard on Friday and Saturday… They apparently were below CNN and MSNBC for the first time in years. 😳

Some are even calling the ratings drop on Fox News “catastrophic.”
This isn’t a blip.
This isn’t “margin of error.”
Viewers are FLEEING Fox News!
The National Pulse confirms:
Last Friday’s ratings for the supposedly “conservative” outlet were less than both CNN and MSNBC for the first time in years, according to an internal Fox document containing viewership analytics.
The numbers show that on November 6th, Fox pulled 2,266,000 viewers while CNN saw nearly twice as many at 4,009,000 viewers. Similarly, MSNBC, per Fox’s internal numbers, counted 2,983,000 viewers, beating Fox by over 700,000 viewers.
Internal data reveals this slump.
The numbers below correspond to CNN’s viewership, dwarfing Fox’s nearly 2,300,000 viewers by almost 2,000,000:
Will Fox News learn their lesson?
Or will alternative channels continue to grow in strength?
Time will tell!
