Citing its post-Mueller Report ratings collapse, far left cable news network MSNBC is shuffling its daytime lineup in an attempt to end its ratings free fall.
Mediaite announced MSNBC’s upcoming shuffle earlier today, noting that the decision was made by top executives amid fears of a continued ratings collapse following the conclusion of the Mueller Report.
According to Mediaite, MSNBC is appointing new producers to its daytime time slots, with Jonathan Wald producing from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. and Dan Arnall from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. MSNBC’s digital streaming platform will also receive new leadership.
Surprisingly, the struggling prime time producer will remain in place.
One source familiar told Mediaite the changes came amidst mounting complaints from NBC News chief Andy Lack about a dip in MSNBC’s ratings following the end of the Mueller investigation. In May, ratings for the network in the advertiser coveted 25-54 demo were down 32% year over year. MSNBC’s ratings in total viewers were flat, though it saw an increase in dayside viewership of 8%, while CNN and Fox News were down.
MSNBC’s ratings collapse has been well documented following the release of the Mueller Report.
In the days leading up to its release, MSNBC’s prime time host Rachel Maddow was competing strongly with Fox News’s Tucker Carlson and Sean Hannity for ratings, and faced an almost immediate decline. In fact, Fox News’, which is quickly losing its conservative bona fides, has outpaced MSNBC in nearly every time slot.
The far left network has deteriorated to the point where Fox News’s early news programming is now beating MSNBC’s prime time lineup in ratings.
Maddow was beat by all of Fox News’s prime time programming, and interestingly, by Fox News’s early news programming as well. “The Five”, airing at 5 p.m. and featuring a variety of hosts including noted liar Juan Williams, had a total of 2,551,000 viewers, beating Maddow’s prime time viewership by over 100,000.
In fact, Fox News beat out MSNBC for viewership for almost the entire broadcast cycle. The only Fox News host beat by MSNBC was Shannon Bream, who had 33,000 less viewers than MSNBC’s Brian Williams during the 11 p.m. hour.
Perhaps this is only logical, considering an MSNBC guest recently claimed President Donald Trump is a “white nationalist” on live television.
President Trump Releases FULL 60 Minutes Interview To Counteract Fake News Bias
The interview has been released.
President Donald Trump released the full session of his interview with 60 Minutes presenter Lesley Stahl on Thursday morning, seeking to counteract deceptive edits on the part of liberal media network CBS.
The interview was uploaded on President Trump’s Facebook page on Thursday morning.
CBS’s Stahl can be seen engaging in charged political commentary during the Presidential interview, attempting to correct matter-of-fact statements from the President, such as responding “you know that’s not true” when he speaks of the strength of the economy before the coronavirus pandemic.
The two go on to discuss the national coronavirus response, with the President pointing to quickly decreasing mortality rates in the country that he attributes to what he calls the most stringent testing system in the world. The daily diagnoses of new coronavirus cases in the “progressive” European Union have surpassed those in the United States.

The President continues to call Stahl out as a fake news media personality throughout the duration of the interview, rebuking charged, biased questions and liberal Democrat talking points from the supposedly “neutral” legacy media news show.
60 Minutes had whined upon finding out that the President would release the full video of the 60 Minutes White House interview. They had hoped that they’d be able to color the exchange with deceptive and selective editing, producing a de facto campaign advertisement for Democrat Joe Biden as the President’s challenger proves unable or unwilling to meaningfully campaign.
CBS News Statement:
The White House’s unprecedented decision to disregard their agreement with CBS News and release their footage will not deter 60 Minutes from providing its full, fair and contextual reporting which presidents have participated in for decades. (1/4)

President Trump names China as the United States’ most potent foreign adversary in the interview, and points to the need for continued tough trade restrictions on the mercantilist-Communist dictatorship.
