Since his rise to office four years ago, President Donald Trump has demonstrated that he has the power to make or break the careers of Republican politicians. But if the past few years have demonstrated something else, it’s that the president has little sway over the largest cable news network in America.
Despite the president’s constant and increasing attacks against Fox News since 2016, the network has remained at the top, with ratings that far exceed its more liberal competitors CNN and MSNBC.
Fox News flagship shows like Tucker Carlson Tonight and Hannity have consistently slayed rivals week after week. They are as the two most popular shows on cable news, with The Ingraham Angle and The Five also landing in the top five month after month. Fox is on track to have its highest rated year in history.
Since long before the 2020 presidential election — and especially following it, after Fox News was the first network to call Arizona for Biden and then called the entire election for the Democrat despite legal challenges from the Trump campaign — Trump has called on his millions of supporters to ditch the network and migrate to the smaller conservative alternatives Newsmax and One America News (OAN).
[email protected] weekend afternoons is the worst! Getting into @CNN and MSDNC territory. Watch @OANN & @newsmax instead. Much better!

This is why @FoxNews daytime and weekend daytime have lost their ratings. They are abysmal having @alfredenewman1 (Mayor Pete of Indiana’s most unsuccessful city, by far!) on more than Republicans. Many great alternatives are forming & exist. Try @OANN & @newsmax, among others! https://t.co/ewHE8GBRNy
