Ever since MSNBC’s Chris Matthews proclaimed to the world that Barack Obama sent a chill up his leg (TMI) whenever he hears him speak, the network has lost just about all credibility. Granted, they didn’t have a ton of credibility to begin with but that disgusting, slobbering display by Matthews’ solidified for many that MSNBC isn’t really a news network. It is clearly a propaganda arm of the Democrat party and their far-left, anti-America agenda…and they don’t try to hide it.
Fast forward to November 2016, the week after the presidential election in which corrupt, serial liar Hillary Clinton was sent packing after suffering an embarrassing and historic defeat by reality TV star and real estate mogul, her longtime friend Donald Trump. While CNN worked a few years ago to reinvent itself after suffering ratings defeat due to their far left spin, MSNBC never learned and it shows.
While MSNBC is used to trailing FOX News and CNN in the ratings, the reality of their insignificance was made even more prominent as they fell in primetime ratings behind both ESPN, which has lost over half a million viewers as they’ve mixed leftist politics with sports, and the Hallmark Channel, known for its “self-produced B-movies and tear-jerker Christmas specials.” Daytime ratings were no better with MSNBC taking fourth place behind Nickelodeon, the channel geared towards children.
Fox News Channel ranked number one, followed by CNN for cable TV channels. MSNBC fell to fourth place in Tuesday’s rankings, behind Nickelodeon. In overall primetime rankings, MSNBC took fifth place behind ESPN and the Hallmark Channel, according to Politico.
How’s that thrill up your leg now, Chris Matthews?
