Fox News Gets Five Times As Many Viewers As CNN

( – TV networks rely on viewers to keep them in business; more viewers mean more money. Surprisingly, despite being part of the mainstream media, CNN is falling in terms of its audience size. To put the figures in perspective, Fox News enjoyed five times the number of viewers on November 9.

Fox News has held the top of the charts for weeks, scoring more viewers than both CNN and MSNBC. The conservative news source easily beat out the competition, but the margin is astonishing.

Jake Tapper of CNN’s “The Lead,” airing between 4:00 and 6:00 p.m., received a total of more than 1.3 million viewers for the two-hour program. However, in its second hour, it only had 630,000 viewers. In comparison, Fox News’ “The Five,” which airs at 5:00 p.m., saw 3.17 million viewers in its single-hour program alone.

The New Jersey and Virginia gubernatorial elections played a big part in the sudden surge of viewers for Fox News, but CNN also covered the elections.

What’s so different between the two? Aside from their political alignments, Fox News isn’t afraid to ask tough questions or criticize administrations — a policy it kept even when Trump was in office. On the other hand, CNN is biased and more favorable towards the left, and tries not to criticize President Biden or his administration.

Viewers take note of these details, and they make a difference.
