Fox News Just CRUSHED Woke Competition in Ratings

The ratings for October just came in. As could be predicted given how things are going at the now constantly reorganizing CNN and the oft-mocked and much-derided MSNBC, Fox News Channel won out.

That shouldn’t be a surprise to most given the huge popularity of Tucker Carlson among members of the Online Right, along with the critical mass of viewership and resulting massive outperformance of Gutfeld’s programs with a more normal audience.

But what might be a surprise, or at least more of one, is that Fox News Channel didn’t just beat its leftie rivals. Rather, it crushed them. The closest comparison might be to say it was Trump vs, “Jeb!” Bush all over again, only this time with Greg Gutfeld, Tucker Carlson, Sean Hannity, and Jesse Watters destroying hacks like Joy Reid, Rachel Maddow, and Brian Stelter rather than Trump punching down on the soft Bush from Florida.

Fox News Digital, reporting on how well its cable division did in the month of October, noted that it didn’t just beat CNN and MSNBC individually, but actually beat the combined results of both, saying:

Fox News Channel finished October as the most-watched cable network among total day viewers for the 20th straight month, crushing CNN and MSNBC viewership combined among key categories.

Continuing, the article then went on to drop its cards on the table and give the proof of FNC’s domination of CNN and MSNBC by providing the ratings numbers, saying:

*” indicates required fields

Fox News averaged 1.5 million total day viewers, while no other networks cracked the one-million viewer benchmark. ESPN finished second with 885,000 average total viewers, followed by 751,000 for MSNBC and a gloomy 533,000 for CNN.

During the primetime hours of 8-11 p.m. ET, Fox News averaged 2.3 million viewers compared to 1.2 million for MSNBC and only 624,000 for CNN. It was CNN’s smallest monthly primetime audience of the year.

Continuing, the same article then went on to note how well some of the best performing FNC programs did when compared with their competitor programs at the leftie outlets, saying:

“The Five” averaged 3.4 million viewers to finish as the most-watched show on cable news for the seventh-straight month

“Tucker Carlson Tonight” averaged 3.3 million viewers to finish second, followed by “Jesse Watters Primetime,” “Hannity,”…

MSNBC’s top program was “The Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell,” which finished No. 14 among cable news programs. The most-popular program on ratings-challenged CNN was the “The Lead with Jake Tapper,” which finished No. 24 overall.

Jake Tapper…managed only 691,000 averaged viewers

And what might be the best news for the network is that it’s not just older people that are watching it. Younger people in the coveted ad demographic (25-54) are as well, particularly Tucker’s show:

“Tucker” averaged 470,000 viewers among the advertiser-coveted demographic of adults age 25-54 to win the critical category as Fox News programs made up the entire top 15.

So, FNC is dominating. Tucker goes viral pretty much every night and brings in a younger audience. Gutfeld is crushing it and bringing in record audiences. The other hosts, even if not as popular as those two, still dominate CNN. Impressive, very nice.

Trump Responds to Secret Service Director’s Resignation

Trump Responds to Secret Service Director's Resignation

(ConcernedPatriot.com) – President Donald Trump responded to Kimberly Cheatle’s statement on Tuesday that she was leaving her role as director of the Secret Service due to criticism of the way her organization handled the recent attempt on the previous president’s life.

Trump said, “She never gave me proper protection, so I ended up having to take a bullet for democracy,” in an afternoon interview with Fox News Digital.

He said that his campaign made multiple requests for more protection, which the agency either flatly denied or disregarded.

“Many requests were made by on-site Secret Service for more people, always with a turn down or no response,” Trump told the news outlet. “I have the biggest crowds in history, and they should be treated accordingly.”

He added, “Big improvements have been made over the last week,” Fox News Digital reported.

Cheatle announced her resignation in writing to the Secret Service on Tuesday morning, despite her earlier refusal to do so.

“To the Men and Women of the U.S. Secret Service, The Secret Service’s solemn mission is to protect our nation’s leaders and financial infrastructure,” Cheatle wrote. “On July 13th, we fell short on that mission.”

She was under pressure to step down during Monday’s House Oversight Committee hearing, as she acknowledged that the agency’s reaction to the attempted assassination was a “failure.” This pressure came from all sides of the aisle.

According to a recent press release, United States Representative Nancy Mace (R-S.C.) submitted a motion that evening that would have forced a vote in the House to impeach Cheatle following her initial refusal to step down on Monday.

In response to Mace’s question during the hearing on whether the agency’s response was “a colossal failure,” the director said, “Yes.” Mace attacked the Secret Service for its lack of openness, pointing out that Cheatle’s testimony had to be subpoenaed by legislators.

Before the hearing, she accused the director of leaking her opening statement to several media sites.

When asked how often the agency had turned down the Trump campaign’s demands for more security throughout her testimony, Cheatle remained silent.

During the committee’s opening remarks, she acknowledged that the Secret Service’s reaction to the attempted assassination was “the most significant operational failure of the agency in decades.”

Nevertheless, she insisted that she was “the best person” to run the organization then.

President Joe Biden issued a statement acknowledging Cheatle’s decision and expressing gratitude for her service on Tuesday afternoon, following her resignation in response to the growing calls for her resignation.

“As a leader, it takes honor, courage, and incredible integrity to take full responsibility for an organization tasked with one of the most challenging jobs in public service,” the statement read. “The independent review to get to the bottom of what happened on July 13th continues, and I look forward to assessing its conclusions. We all know what happened that day can never happen again.”

During her hearing before the committee on Monday, Cheatle stated that the agency’s ongoing initial internal assessment would take around sixty days.

Do you believe there should be a criminal investigation into the Secret Service Director’s lack of security for President Trump?

Harris Campaign Begins Vetting Process for Top VP Contenders

Harris Campaign Begins Vetting Process for Top VP Contenders

(ConcernedPatriot.com) – The competition to become Vice President Kamala Harris’s running partner is intensifying. It has been reported that her campaign has sent screening papers to several prominent Democrats.

Senator Mark Kelly (D-AZ) and Governor Josh Shapiro (D-PA), seen as strong candidates from crucial battleground states, are leading the pack.

Harris’s campaign carefully evaluates potential vice presidential candidates as she seeks the Democratic presidential nomination.

Alongside Kelly and Shapiro, governors Roy Cooper (D-NC), Gretchen Whitmer (D-MI), Tim Walz (D-MN), and J.B. Pritzker (D-IL) have also been given vetting paperwork. However, Pritzker has denied receiving such materials.

One notable omission from the list is Governor Andy Beshear (D-KY), who many see as a leading contender.

Beshear stated that despite vigorous campaigning for the position, he had not received any correspondence from the Harris campaign concerning the vice-presidential screening procedure.

The selection process is underway as Harris’s team looks to enhance its ticket with a running mate who will appeal to a wide range of voters and strengthen support in key states.

Kelly and Shapiro are perceived as centrist leaders who, due to their considerable political backgrounds, have the potential to draw in moderate voters.

Kelly, the current senator from Arizona and a former astronaut, has a proven track record in Arizona.

At the same time, Shapiro’s leadership in Pennsylvania is distinguished by his emphasis on progressive ideals and his ability to win elections in a swing state.

The main goal of her campaign plan seems to be selecting a running mate who can enhance Harris’s program and increase the Democratic ticket’s appeal to a wide range of voters in essential areas and demographics.

The fact that there are several governors indicates that candidates with executive expertise and a track record of successful leadership are preferred.

The screening process is anticipated to be rigorous, involving a detailed review of the candidates’ public personas and political positions and significant background investigations.

The campaign’s final choice will probably try to strike a compromise between political tactics and the requirement for a solid and cooperative alliance in the White House.

As the Democratic National Convention draws near, there is growing conjecture and expectation over Harris’s final choice for her ticket partner.

The chosen vice-presidential candidate will be crucial to the party’s unity and mobilization of the electorate before the November election.

Does it matter who Harris selects as her VP as she goes against the Trump/Vance ticket?

BREAKING: JOE BIDEN DROPS OUT!

BREAKING: JOE BIDEN DROPS OUT!

(ConcernedPatriot.com) – Joe Biden has decided not to run for reelection.

On Sunday afternoon, Biden declared his plan and promised to provide further details shortly.

“It has been the greatest honor of my life to serve as your President,” Biden’s statement read. “And while it has been my intention to seek reelection, I believe it is in the best interest of my party and the country for me to stand down and to focus solely on fulfilling my duties as President for the remainder of my term.”

Although Vice President Kamala Harris was expressly endorsed as his successor, he congratulated her in his statement for “being an extraordinary partner in all this work.”

But Biden later gave “my full support and endorsement for Kamala to be the nominee of our party this year” in a statement uploaded on X.

Then, in a powerful message to Democrats, Biden urged them to unite and defeat Trump, emphasizing the importance of collective action in the upcoming election.

Do you believe VP Kamala Harris will be the 2024 Democratic presidential nominee?
