    Democrats Receive Devastating News

    Published on

    The ratings for Thursday night’s prime-time session of the House panel examining the Capitol invasion on January 6, 2021 indicate that Americans would have chosen straightforward news.

    When Newsbusters’ ratings were analyzed, an obvious pattern appeared.

    Each of the three main television networks that carried the hearing attracted a smaller audience than they would have if they had simply aired their ordinary news programming.

    For instance, ABC’s 4.35 million viewers for the hearing may sound outstanding, but based on ratings from the week of June 1, “World News Tonight” typically attracts 7.4 million viewers.

    The same pattern was observed on NBC, where the novelty of a prime-time hearing drew 3.31 million viewers, or around half of the 6.06 million viewers who typically watch NBC’s news. Curiosity attracted 3.24 million viewers on CBS, which was below the evening average of 4.3 million people.

    Game 5 of the Rangers-Lightning series will hopefully receive higher ratings.

    Tucker Carlson of Fox News, the only major network not to devote its evening to the hearing, stated that the media’s use of the hearing as a publicity tool was “a day that will live in shame in the history of the American news business.”

    More on this story via The Western Journal:

    In an op-ed on Fox News Carlson called the hearing “unedited campaign propaganda scripted by the Democratic Party.”

    Carlson said the prime-time event “was definitely not a hearing. It was a show trial.”

    “At a hearing, dissent is permitted. The other side can speak. Evidence is presented. Evidence is not censored or deceptively edited. That’s not allowed,” he wrote. Read more…
