MARKET HAS SPOKEN: Newsmax Plans Drastic Expansion After Taking Scores of Viewers From Fox News
The upstart television network Newsmax is planning a dramatic expansion after gaining massive numbers of views from Fox News due to the station refusing to properly cover election fraud claims.
Reuters has reported that they are planning to add more staff members in the United States and London. They are also going to add a new primetime host and create additional weekend programming to capitalize on their rapidly growing fan base.
Newsmax host Greg Kelly received an average of 229,000 viewers from the coveted 25-to-54 age demographic on Monday for the early evening time slot. Kelly beat Fox’s Martha MacCallum, who brought in 203,000 viewers from that key demographic over the 7 p.m. hour, for the first time.
Fox News is still beating Newsmax in the overall ratings handily, but Newsmax is also growing exponentially on digital platforms. They are preparing to challenge Fox News for supremacy over the conservative media market, according to Newsmax chief executive Chris Ruddy.
“People are really tired of Fox News,” Ruddy said in a recent interview. “There is a perception that they really tried to torpedo the president.”
Big League Politics has reported on the incredible decline of Fox News, which has joined in the color revolution coup against President Donald Trump to enforce the vote steal:
Fox News’ Neil Cavuto suddenly ended coverage of a press conference in which White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany was speaking, refusing to allow the channel’s audience to hear McEnany’s arguments of election impropriety…
“There is only one party in America trying to keep observers out of the count room, that party my friends is the Democrat party,” McEnany said. “You don’t take these positions because you want an honest election. You don’t oppose an audit of the vote because you want an accurate count. You don’t oppose our effort at sunlight at transparency because you have nothing to hide. You take these positions because you are a welcoming fraud and you are welcoming illegal voting.”
Fox News is rapidly shedding its traditionally conservative audience. Americans who remain skeptical of declaring the election for any candidate while legal challenges are still pending are increasingly choosing to receive their news from television channels such as Newsmax and OANN.
There is a realignment in the conservative movement right now. The old guard is now more reviled than even the Democrats among the base. This is a major opportunity for new leaders to rise and displace the corrupt dinosaurs on the Right.
