While CNN often gets the brunt of President Trump’s “fake news” attacks, MSNBC has been just as unfair to Trump.
The entire network has an agenda to slander Trump and his supporters.
And one of their biggest hosts just got smacked with news that could end her career.
Since the election of President Donald Trump, the left-wing media has faced some difficult times. When faced next to Fox News, which is the news station of choice for President Trump, no television media can come close in viewers.
While CNN, which has been the butt of many jokes made by the President, has been the hardest hit, MSNBC has still faced major problems with viewership. And their more left-leaning hosts have been hit the hardest.
One, in particular, has been having a bad past few months. Joy Reid has been facing a lot of trouble, largely due to an uncovered blog she ran that included anti-Semitic and homophobic statements alongside 9/11 conspiracy theories.
Despite claiming she either didn’t remember writing them or was hacked, Reid was forced to apologize. And while MSNBC has stood by her, and her show “AM Joy,” it seems that many viewers have not.
A recent review conducted by Contemptor shows that Reid’s show has lost 21 percent of her viewers since the blog was uncovered in late April. That is a steep decline that is sure to have MSNBC unsure about continuing to host her show.
Prior to the posts being unearthed, Reid’s Saturday and Sunday show brought in 1.113 million total viewers on average. That number is well above the average viewership across the network.
But after the blog posts were released, her viewership dipped down to 876,000 average viewers, which is below the average non-primetime viewership at the network.
So while MSNBC has continued to stand with Reid, her declining viewership could be her ultimate end on the network. The goal of television networks is to bring in as many viewers as possible, and if Reid isn’t doing her part, it could come down to a money decision.
While Reid’s problem is based on a specific problem, MSNBC and CNN have had declining viewers for months for a plethora of issues. That plethora of issues is likely based around biased reporting.
MSNBC has been referred to as the “Network of The Resistance,” while CNN has been referred to as the “Clinton News Network.”
In contrast, Fox News has distanced itself from partisan reporting, instead taking a more broad approach on issues. A standard Fox News show features a variety of viewpoints, who partake in what are usually productive and respectful dialogs.
But with the goals of CNN and MSNBC being bashing the President, they rarely have dissenting viewpoints on their networks. And when they do, it is to rapid-fire questions specifically designed to make anyone they disagree with as evil.
This seems to be good for liberals looking to have their views validated, but for anyone else, it is seen for what it is: fake news.
