The ratings hemorrhage by CNN and MSNBC is real and dramatic. Fox News also suffered a post-election drop because of its betrayal of the President, but has achieved some measure of stability. That said, Fox is way below where it was last August. Let me give you the numbers.
First with Fox. August thru November 3 was the highwater mark for Fox News programs from 4pm on. Fox’s current numbers show a dramatic drop when you compare the numbers for March 25, 2021 with those for August 23, 2020. Sean Hannity and Laura Ingraham have suffered the largest loss–Hannity has shed 4,185,000 viewers while Laura’s losses approach five million. Even Tucker Carlson is down 40% compared to his August 2020 numbers.

This is a good thing. Finally people are doing something other than hanging on every insane utterance made by Trump or the insane reactions to those utterances. It’s about time everyone got a life.
Ditto for Rush Limbaugh. Now “conservatives/republicans” can possibly find their own set of balls and not hang on what Rush would say. Rush never criticized Reagan, the Bushes, or Trump even when they made disastrous mistakes. Reagan amnesty, Bushes let the border stay open, Iraq war, Trumps many errors in choosing advisers, etc. Somehow we ended up with Obama/Biden/Harris despite the wonderfulness of conservatives in White House, Senate, House reps. Republican leadership simply cannot preserve the United States. They are always fighting a rearguard action even when they controlled the house and senate and presidency. Even if conservatives secede from blue states it will all come to a violent conclusion.
Reagan “amnesty” was not a mistake; it was an intentional betrayal. His plan was secure the border first; then deal with amnesty. A quid pro quo.
The pivotal moment of this betrayal is we only got one part of the bargain – amnesty but no border security. Why this betrayal and by whom deserves exploration.
Add in the contemporaneous 1982 SCOTUS mandate of free K-12 for all illegals and you have the early seeds of today’s border crashing disaster.
Well its good to know that those +5 million viewers are on to something else at +21:00 hours. Obviously some are getting more sleep, others may be increasing the population, some reading more…..hopefully those TDS characters are healing till another day.
Ratings are collapsing because the audience got fed up with the lying.
