The way Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace treated President Trump during the first debate seemed to kick off an anti-Trump bias at the network.
After Fox News took sides during the debate, the network then prematurely called Arizona for Joe Biden and projected that Democrats would gain seats in the House of Representatives – a projection that turned out to be dead wrong as Democrats ended up losing seats in the House.
And Fox News just learned there is a severe price to pay for betraying President Trump.
Fox News has dominated the cable news industry for the past two decades – sitting at the number one spot year after year.
But that all changed when Fox News split their audience by turning on Donald Trump, even using Fake News-style “fact checks” on the President’s allegations of widespread voter fraud committed by Democrats to put Joe Biden over the top.
In fact, after Fox News betrayed President Trump, Newsmax host Greg Kelly saw a jump in viewership from just under 100,000 to nearly one million for his popular primetime show on the network.
Fox News lost so much of their audience that at one point recently, MSNBC even leaped past Fox News in terms of average viewers for both all day – and in primetime.

Of course, for the past two decades, Fox News was the only network for conservatives to turn to, with CNN, MSNBC and all the other networks in the tank for the radical Left.
But ever since the first debate, Fox News has been acting more and more like the Fake News Media by turning on President Trump and his supporters.
And this leftward drift, combined with the rise of alternative news sites like Newsmax and One America News Network, seems to have splintered Fox News’ viewership, crippling the network’s ratings.
