Tucker Carlson is apparently receiving higher ratings in the time slot vacated by Megyn Kelly on FOX Noise. Is this because he’s a bigger liar? Although he can’t prove it as fact, Carlson says that ‘not one vote was gained by Trump because of Russian interference.’ Of course he never mentions Putin’s collusion with Julian Assange and the constant referrals to Hillary’s e-mails. Nor does he discuss FBI Director James Comey’s announcement that he was re-investigating those e-mails just eleven days prior to election day. The polls changed drastically over a 24 hour period.
What he does is blame MSNBC for their continuous efforts to keep the truth in the public eye.
I don’t deny that MSNBC is biased, but it is necessary. FOX is nothing more than a right wing propaganda machine which receives its ratings from lies and half-truths. ‘Fact Check’ spends much of its day exposing the many fallacies of its on-air personalities. MSNBC balances some of the outrageous claims of the fake-news network.
Carlson replaced Megyn Kelly on FOX. They claim that ratings are higher for that time slot since Carlson began broadcasting. That may be true, but not for the reasons they claim.
FOX’ audience is dwindling. Their fans are the Republican base; older white Americans. Millennials do not listen to FOX; nor do educated women, African Americans, Hispanics, or the LGBTQ community. Their audience is a dying breed.
FOX’ top ratings apply to Bill O’Reilly and Sean Hannity; Kelly was third. FOX’ audience is dominated by men and therefore there is no surprise that Carlson is receiving a larger audience.
My only concern is that Kelly overstayed her welcome at FOX. It will be difficult for thinking Americans to accept her as a legitimate journalist.
FOX has few journalists, and they simply sold out for higher salaries.
Right here is where you read the truth; that is my promise.
Please re-post and keep America informed.
