That was in January, which was flummoxing and I assumed completely was a fluke. However then right this moment, we realized that we did it for a second month in a row. It seems we have been the most-watched present on all of cable TV for each January and February, which I don’t know what to make of. However even higher than that, for February, for this previous month, not solely have been we the most-watched present on cable, however our community, this community, MSNBC, was probably the most watched community in all of cable TV within the month of February, which is the primary time that has ever been true for us as a community since we got here into existence almost 25 years in the past.

It does blow my thoughts personally, however I’m so grateful and humbled. Thanks for supporting the present. Thanks for supporting MSNBC.

Trump killed Fox Information

Fox Information was instrumental not solely in serving to Donald Trump turn out to be president within the first place, but additionally in creating an alternate actuality for the MAGA cult.

In a world with out Fox Information, it’s unlikely {that a} president as blatantly corrupt and incompetent as Donald Trump would have lasted a full time period within the White Home.

Towards the top of his presidency, nonetheless, the Trump-Fox love affair began to wither because the ex-president’s delusions turned too excessive even for the right-wing propaganda community to humor.

As a consequence, Trump started treating Fox Information the best way he has handled different cable information networks like CNN and MSNBC, and he advised his supporters to flock to extremist shops like OANN and Newsmax.

Donald Trump helped kill the community that elevated him to the very best workplace within the land.
