Fox News became the biggest news channel because of their fairness to President Trump.
But that has all changed in previous months.
And Fox News just made a fatal mistake and may never recover after getting this news.
For months, it has become clear that Fox News is no longer the network it once was.
During the 2016 Presidential campaign, and the early stages of Trump’s Presidency, it is the channel that Trump supporters tuned in to get actual news, and not constant anti-Trump propaganda.
But in a series of horrible decisions, their reputation among Trump supporters has been completely shot.
Perhaps the most despicable thing they did was hiring Clinton crony Donna Brazile, who now goes on air to bash Trump supporters as racists.
But even that seemed to be tolerable for many of their viewers, as they still retained the highest viewership on the network.
It turns out that election night was what would ultimately signal their end, when they called the state of Arizona for Joe Biden when there were still hundreds of thousands of votes to be counted.
Even CNN hadn’t called the state for Biden, and at this point many sources still haven’t called the state as they await legal challenges, which could result in a recount.
In response, Trump supporters who were once loyal to Fox News are now tuning in to other networks.
The big winner appears to be Newsmax TV, which has emerged as a formidable competitor to Fox News.
According to Nielsen data, which tracks television viewing habits, Newsmax TV led Fox Business and CNBC in all key day parts.
The network also saw over a half million downloads to the free Newsmax TV App, and earlier Tuesday hit the top 3 position in rankings for downloads on iPhone.
With hosts like Mike Huckabee, Greg Kelly, Sean Spicer, and Michelle Malkin, Newsmax TV is proving to be the conservative alternative to Fox News.
It is a network Trump supporters can watch without being called racists by the hosts, and where their ideas are taken seriously, unlike Fox News who have hosts who choose to paint many Trump supporters as “conspiracy theorists.”
Newsmax TV is among a number of conservative networks that have shone during the Trump era, along with One America News Network.
