Somali-born journalist Hodan Nalayeh traveled to her native country last week to debunk “stereotypes” and prove Somalia is beautiful and was subsequently killed by Islamic terrorists.
Nalayeh and her husband were among 26 people murdered by al-Shabab militants in Kismayo on Friday. The journalist, who was nine months pregnant was in Asasey Hotel, where politicians were discussing forthcoming regional elections, when jihadist gunmen stormed the scene.
A suicide bomber then detonated a vehicle outside the hotel.

Prior to the incident, Nalayeh celebrated returning to the African country for the first time in 30 years, posting a photograph on Instagram.
She frequently tweeted about Somalia, lauding how “it’s so clean & breathtaking.”

According to the Washington Post, Nalayeh returned to Somalia to disprove claims that Somalia is crime-infested and tell “uplifting” stories about her homeland.
One of Nalayeh’s Twitter followers commended her for “countering the doom narrative propagated by many about Somalia.”

Nayaleh’s death comes after Democrats resoundingly claimed President Trump is racist for arguing Somali-born, anti-Semitic Rep. Ilhan Omar is “lucky to be” in the United States, amid reports proving she defrauded U.S. immigration laws to be granted asylum.
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.
