Report: Fox News Panics, Pressures Guests To Not Appear On New Competitor, Newsmax

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Fox News betrayed their viewers when they went full on anti-Trump on election night. Today they are paying the price in the ratings. The network will never again retain the trust of President Trump’s supporters, who will gladly obtain their news elsewhere. Hannity, Carlson, Pirro, and Levin should start planning their exit. Fox News is finished.

Report: Fox News Panics, Pressures Guests To Not Appear On New Competitor, Newsmax

By The Federalist Paper, November 28, 2020

As thousands of former Fox News viewers will gladly tell you on Twitter — the traditionally right-leaning network took a hard turn toward the left on election day when they made the controversial and bombshell call on the state of Arizona, awarding it to former Vice President Joe Biden when just a fraction of the votes were in.

Not long after that, several of the network’s hosts and reporters began to show what many believe was obvious bias in Biden’s favor, especially host Neil Cavuto, who took fire on social media after he pulled away from a news conference by White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany as she discussed allegations of election fraud.

Fox News viewers quickly turned to an up-and-coming conservative news network called Newsmax. They’ve been around for a while, but their original programming is gaining quite an audience as former Fox News viewers search for a new home where they can digest the conservative news by conservative commentators that they demand.

While Fox News executives would never admit it out loud, according to Business Insider, it appears as if the corporate giant is starting to worry about the rise of their new competitor, as the network is reportedly keeping an eye on which guests do appearances on Newsmax, while encouraging them not to appear on the network.

Reportedly, Fox News inside sources told CNN that network management is keeping close tabs on guests who appear on Newsmax, although Fox News has since denied such reports — as expected.

Newsmax has been repeatedly promoted by President Donald Trump, in a string of recent tweets. As a result of Trump’s promotion and the Fox News viewer refugees flocking to the conservative network, Newsmax evening host, Greg Kelly, has seen staggering ratings growth, going from 80,000 viewers a day to over 800,000.

And that number is expected to grow as more conservatives are made aware of the network through Trump and other high-profile conservatives who are actively promoting it. Not to mention the fact that Newsmax is available for free through virtually every streaming service.

While Fox News still dominates the ratings game, the mass exodus of former viewers is definitely making a mark.

Only time will tell, but I have a feeling that, for the first time in over two decades, Fox News will soon have to figure out how to win back viewers and convince them that they’re worthy of their eyeballs. In the meantime, Fox News’ loss is Newsmax’s gain.

      I am going to change my cable provider to get Newsmax so I can rid myself of Fox News. It has never been so easy to spot phony people before.

      Fox isn’t dominating in the ratings. They’re behind both CNN and MSDNC.

      The post-election, weekday average daytime viewership of 1.63 million was roughly equivalent to that of CNN (1.68 million) and MSNBC (1.71 million). CNN was up 33% and MSNBC up 9% during that time period, Nielsen said.

      CNN 1.68 million
      MSNC 1.71 million
