A banner year for Fox News: record-breaking ratings and powerful influence in politics, social media

If you ever tire of “Fake News”, watch Fox News to learn the truth and not simply absorb the garbage that establishment Left wing media produces every minute of the day.

It has been a banner year for one network in the competitive, often chaotic media marketplace. Fox News has enjoyed its highest-rated year since it was founded 21 years ago, and has emerged as the leading influence in both politics and social media.

 
In terms of audience, the network is beating its news competition — along with everyone else in the cable realm.

 
At year’s end, Fox News marks its second consecutive year as the most-watched cable network of all according to Nielsen Media Research, besting ESPN, HGTV and other high-profile providers. In the news realm, Fox News now marks its 16th year at No. 1, garnering 2.4 million primetime viewers compared to 1.6 million for MSNBC and 1 million for CNN.

 

 

Veteran primetime host Sean Hannity drew the largest audiences across all cable news programming, typically drawing 3.2 million viewers.

 

 

Meanwhile, early morning “Fox and Friends” co-hosts Steve Doocy, Ainsley Earhardt and Brian Kilmeade were named the “most influential” forces in media by none other than Mediaite.com, an industry blog which cited the trio’s popularity with President Trump, a regular viewer.

 
“That comes with wide-reaching consequences: very often a Fox and Friends segment can set the policy and media narrative for the day,” wrote analyst Aidan McLaughlin in his rationale of the choice.
