Published

on

Former NFL player and college football star Herschel Walker gave a powerful speech in defense of President Donald Trump at the Republican National Convention on August 24, 2020.

In it, he spoke positively about the president’s character and demanded that professional athletes stand for the national anthem

The NFL veteran firmly believes that it is a “personal insult” when Trump is accused of allegedly being racist.

“I’ve seen racism up close. I know what it is. And, it isn’t Donald Trump.”

“It hurt my soul to hear the terrible names that people called Donald,” Walker stated. “The worst one is racist.”

“I take it as a personal insult that people would think I’ve had a 37-year friendship with a racist,” Walker remarked. “People who think that don’t know what they’re talking about.”

Despite making these comments in support of Trump, Twitter users threw a massive fit over Walker’s pro-Trump speech.

According to a report by Total Pro Sports, the term “Uncle Tom” started trending on Twitter after Walker praised Trump in his speech.

Uncle Tom refers to blacks who are allegedly “sell-outs” to their own race by acting “white” or supporting causes that allegedly enhance white interests. Walker’s decision to praise Trump apparently merits such a nasty label from his critics.

Walker has been one of the strongest voices in support of Trump and will likely play a major role in the newly realigned GOP.

The fact that Walker is getting attacked this hard by the Left shows he’s doing something right.

Fox News Ratings Crater, Trailing CNN and MSNBC for First Time in 21 Years

A brutal collapse over the past two-and-a-half months.

Recent data from Nielsen shows that Fox News finished behind both CNN and MSNBC in ratings to open the month of January.

This is the first time in twenty-one years that that has happened, according to Daily Wire.

Nielsen’s ratings data shows that CNN finished number one among cable news networks with approximately 2.8 million viewers per day from January 4 through January 10, including 4.2 million in primetime.

MSNBC came in second with 2.3 million viewers per day and 3.8 million in primetime. And in third was Fox News with 1.7 million viewers per day and 3.2 million in primetime.

This is tough data for the conservative-leaning network. Over the past couple decades Fox has become accustomed to completely dominating the ratings, oftentimes receiving more viewership than CNN and MSNBC combined. Several factors contribute to the fall of Fox, including but not limited to:

  • The death of Roger Ailes in 2017 and subsequent changes in network leadership
  • Their disastrous Election Night coverage on November 3
  • Donald Trump’s loss to Joe Biden
  • An ostensible effort to distance themselves from Trump
  • A real or perceived softening of their conservatism in general
  • Trump’s public irritation with the network, to the point of telling people to migrate over to Newsmax and One America News Network (OANN)

Fox News has recently announced lineup changes as well. This is standard practice in the cable news industry and may not have much to do with their suffering ratings, though there’s a likely possibility that it does. Fox will be adding an hour-long opinion show in place of Martha MacCallum’s news show “The Story,” which had fallen behind both CNN and MSNBC’s 7pm timeslots after a stretch of being “comfortably ahead in ratings.” The network will also shuffle some of their daytime lineup.

As Joe Biden works through his first 100 days as president, it will be interesting to see how Fox News continues to perform, not only in comparison with CNN and MSNBC, but also with OANN and Newsmax.
