Fox News boasted the top four most-watched cable news programs for the month –– HannityTucker Carlson TonightThe Ingraham Angle, and The Five. MSNBC’s The Rachel Maddow Show came in fifth.

Hannity held down his customary top spot with 3.332 million viewers total for the month, and 527,000 in the advertiser-coveted adults 25-54 demo.

Once the Russia Gate Story was exposed for what it really was and then the Sphinx Mueller was shown to have absolutely nothing to do with his own report Maddow was just sort of left out there dangling in the wind .

The same will now prove true for many others at MSNBC, CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC, WaPo, NYT, and so many more.

The Curtain has been Lifted and the Wizards are not quite what much of the Great Unwashed Viewing Audience once thought .

Now all they have to cling to are accusations of racism and sexism and those will be the Drums they beat until Nov 2020 .

They will all lose a very high percentage or Viewers and readers so within that time we may see great changes in several organizations .
