In another sign of which political party is really out of touch with the American public, liberal favorite MSNBC posted its all-time lowest ratings yet in the first quarter of the year, with Fox News so far on top it’s beating its top rivals combined — again.
According to Deadline Hollywood, CNN and MSNBC together couldn’t touch Fox’s cable ratings share among the coveted 25- to 54-year-old demographic, with Fox posting a 10 percent increase in prime time.
MSNBC, the network that brings lefty stalwarts like Al Sharpton and Rachel Maddow to America’s living rooms posted a 39 percent drop — a plummet so steep it even lost two daytime hours to Al Jazeera America, for God’s sake. (How many people do you know who watch AJAM?)
What’s crazy about this isn’t the ratings themselves – Fox has been on top for so long, Monday’s results marked the 60th consecutive quarter Bill O’Reilly’s “The O’Reilly Factor” has been No. 1 in its time slot. “Special Report with Bret Baier” celebrates 75 consecutive months at #1 in its current slot, according to ratings.
In fact, according to Nielsen numbers, the network occupied the top 14 cable news slots, led by the “The O’Reilly Factor” at 2.83 million viewers, “The Kelly File” at 2.24 million, “The Five” at 2.16 million, “Special Report with Bret Baier” at 2.07 million, and “On the Record with Greta Van Susteren at 1.86 million.
MSNBC’s top offering meanwhile is “The Rachel Maddow Show,” which comes in at No. 15, marking the lowest recorded demo since the launch of the show.
What’s crazy is that the Democrat/liberal establishment – from the Oval Office to New York dinner parties – still talk about Fox News and its viewers like they were from some other planet – Planet Conservative in a galaxy that has nothing to do with mainstream America.
MSNBC is a 24/7 liberal-progressive operation that gets rejected by the American public with every quarterly ratings report — it’s a lot like the Democrat Party and midterm elections these days.
“Fair and Balanced” Fox wins the overwhelming majority of American cable news viewers again and again, but the network is routinely mocked as “too conservative” for the country. The liberal MSNBC is so ignored it gets beat by a Qatar-based Al Jazeera in America that wasn’t even in the country until 2013.
The left has Rachel Maddow. Fox has Megyn Kelly.
And liberals keep saying conservatives are out of touch?

@DRUDGE_REPORT No surprise. It’s has been nothing but a propaganda machine for the Obama Administration. And the DNC.
