    Although opinions vary, sometime in a significant manner, it is easy to recognize that there are no journalism attributes shown on any of the news channels except some FOX shows. It does not take a genius to see the obvious. CNN,MSNBS chose to play dis-informed politics at every corner. The media with the exception FOX are all so obviously in the tank for the democrats, they do not even try and conceal it. It is sickening to watch. I recall there was a time when CNN attempted to be non-bias. They had a show named Crossfire back in the 1980's. It was around the Clinton years when I noticed a paradigm shift to the left for CNN. They and their cousins MSNBC and others stooped to new lows to ensure that Trump was not re-elected. Look how they covered the "peaceful riots" last summer. Freakin buildings were burning in the background as the CNN reporter described a peaceful protest. Such idiots, and they really do think that the folks are stupid. This is why their ratings will continue to drop.

    I'm liking Newsmax more and more. It would be good if you could watch OAN on cable. I watch Tucker Carlson faithfully. I really like Greg on Newsmax and a few others. I can't imagine watching CNN or MSNBC. Every time I would switch to see what they were reported in the last years they were misrepresenting President Trump and very disrespectful. They make me cringe.

      I agree. OAN investigates is the best

    Nice to see the NBA and NFL channels crashing....
    This anti American prevailing attitudes from both of these " American Pastimes"
    Along with the constant social justice message from the leagues have ruined the circus.
    No thanks from a die hard fan of almost 60 viewing years.

      A little Sarcasm;

      The false virtue signaling coming
      from the billionaire de facto Plantation Crackers running the NBA and NFL has gone way over the top. They are desperate to placate racist , narcissist , morons like LeBron James and his ilk . People whose self self righteous victimhood narratives are only rivaled by their almost none existent self awareness.

      The Crackers have SARCASTICALLY turned the games into a thinly veiled satirical circus of false virtue signaling. Former fans see through this and the drop in viewership shows just what a turnoff this all is .

      Token “give back” programs touted
      by the players and the crackers are so small as to be meaningless . These are seen as the public relations jokes that they are. Players earn tens of millions while owners and media exploit hundreds of millions. In relation to these revenues, the window dressing , PR programs amount to a drop in the bucket.

      While those give back PR commercials are running , everyone else is counting their money.

    Newsmax is 52 on the list. Their shows are on the top 50 programs list though.
    Stitchfield, Greg Kelly and others.
    Chris Wallace is one of the biggest POS on TV

      Even more impressive when you realize that Newsmax is not even carried by all cable providers. A true apples to apples comparison would have them far higher

    I was so happy to see that Morning Joe with that hate filled Mika Brezinski and her possible murdering husband is almost dead last in the ratings. Good job Mika & Joe great hating.

    I've quit watching any of the networks for news except for the local news. I got tired of the lies.
    When every news outlet says "baseless" claims of election fraud just days after the election, I knew they had been given a script to follow.
    I canceled my cable tv and I don't miss it. Doubt if I ever go back.

    Fox has the best news organization in the business and the ratings bare it out, everyone that oppose that are only looking bad when saying otherwise or extreme Left wing.

    The Fact that Fox continues to lead in the ratings and will continue to is due to the fact that people are fed up with the lies being told by the left consistently and I know everything isn't perfect in this world and the right wing side isn't either but when you really put the two beside each other and watch for an extended period of time it becomes obvious that FOX tells the truth more than the other networks period!

      Fox is playing and Trying to find a Sweet spot! That’s why the musical chairs!
      Fox was ready to make a left turn until they saw so many leave, now they are fishing to see what works. Even Hannity it’s the s getting stale ams Ingham likes
      To hear herself talk and drowns out the guests! Seems fox may have a morale problem as well. Want to see Newsmax succeed! I was with Fox from the first day they went out n the air! I don’t see any core values at Fox any more!

    HAY!!!!!!anybody out there think that if Joe Biden instead of Trump was president when the coronavirus hit us we would have a vaccine in nine months

    Thank God we had a businessman at the time ,,,you know a guy who actually ran something ,not a politician who never signed the front of a check

      Bring Trump back! Dictator Biden is showing his colors. He’s doing what he said he’d do and it’s not for Americans!

    Where is Chris Wallace on this list and when will Fox fire him? He is definitely poison to their ratings.

    1. Jeff SimmonsJeff Simmons

      Wallace is the product of nepotism AND being surrounded by Beltway Bums most of his life. On top of that, he’s a little man with a big mouth and a big chip.

      He’s become nothing more than just another version of “Butt Chuck” Todd.

      How does FOX News ever hope to make headway in the ratings on Sundays with a host like Wallace, who’s like all the rest?!?

    There is little to no truth in cable network news anymore, nor has there, been in many years. People are switching to alternative methods of news where they can make comparisons and decisions on which are reliable or not. But even in the alternative news world deep staters are injecting lies and misinformation. It takes a lot of work to be informed these days.

      Are you a right-wing, Trump cult lunatic?
