Democrats and their allies in the fake news media want to silence Fox News.
Anti-Trump forces believe that if they take down Fox News, they can take down the President.
And now Rachel Maddow revealed the one thing that is bad news for Sean Hannity and Fox News.
Fox News is under all-out assault at the moment.
The network has dominated the cable news ratings since replacing CNN as the top-rated cable news channel in 2002.
Fox News has not relinquished that spot since.
But Rachel Maddow just drew nearly four million viewers to her nightly show– making her the top-rated show in all of cable and reaching a bigger audience than shows on over-the-air broadcast networks like CBS and Fox.
Maddow’s show drew nearly one million more viewers than Fox News Channel’s Sean Hannity – whom she competes against in the 9PM time slot.
Maddow’s ratings dominance comes at a time when Fox News is under sustained assault.
Radical left-wing “journalist” Jane Mayer – who published the fake news allegations of sexual misconduct against Bret Kavanaugh – is out with her latest hit piece.
Mayer claims that Fox News is “state run” television because the primetime programming does not feature a steady stream of anti-Trump hatred and fake news.
Mayer claimed – without citing evidence – that the network gave debate questions to Trump before the first GOP Presidential primary debate.
This was fake news.
Fox News Special Report host – and debate moderator – Brett Baier furiously denied this fake news hoax.
Bair wrote, “1) we had a tight lid on those q’s 2) prove it to me 3)I took 3 weeks of grief from iinside & out that we were too tough on @realDonaldTrump in that 1st debate 3) Trump boycotted us after4) we can’t ask our former CEO sadly-the only person who can confirm is @realDonaldTrump.”
However, the damage was done.
Mayer’s fake news article provided the Democrats with another chance to take Fox News down a peg.
Fox News wanted to host one of the Democrat Presidential primary debates.
Given that Donald Trump won the Presidency in part because he flipped 200 counties that voted twice for Barack Obama, Fox News offered the Democrats a chance to reach those voters they had lost.
But that mattered far less to them than destroying Fox News and ultimately destroying Trump.
Democrat National Committee Chairman Tom Perez announced that the Democrats banned Fox News from hosting a debate.
“Because what we have seen now, and it’s been really most recently now in the New Yorker story, is that at the highest levels of FOX News, they’re not playing it straight.”
“And again, this isn’t about Chris Wallace. I have respect for him. But I do not have the confidence that we need to take such an important part of the nomination process, these debates, and trust them to folks who, at the top levels, are consulting Donald Trump before they do anything. I couldn’t do that,” Perez ranted.
CNN’s Democrat Party activist and sometimes media “critic” Brian Stelter doubled down on this coordinated left-wing attack.
Stelter went on the air and claimed Fox should not host a Democrat debate because their primetime hosts don’t praise Nancy Pelosi and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
The real issue at play is trying to badger Fox into muzzling – or even firing – primetime hosts Hannity, Tucker Carlson, and Laura Ingraham.
Stelter and other liberals contend that if the only information Americans receive is the anti-Trump fake news CNN airs every night, the public will turn against Donald Trump and Congress could finally impeach him.
