The Fall of Fox: "Morning Joe" Beats Fox and Friends for the First Time in 19 Years as the Paul Ryan Era of Fox News Is In Full Effect

First time in 19 years, huh?

Oh well! Bonuses for all the deranged leftists in Fox News' management!

I'm sure Fox News' new public relations firm will say this is no big deal and point us to Tucker Carlson's ratings, but this seems like a pretty big deal to me. For the first time since 2001, MSNBC's Morning Joe has beaten Fox and Friends in the ratings game. This is also not a single cherry-picked day, but an average of the entire week.


Some people reading this right now weren't born the last time this happened.

"We did it!" -- Kathryn Murdoch.

...

Fox News seems to just be hunkering down in response to all this though, unwilling to admit any fault. The results of that will be squarely on them.

I don't know where the numbers in the tweet below came from, so I can't endorse them.

But here's a claim about Fox's fall.
