Trump coverage elevates MSNBC to #1 for first time
MSNBC, the pride of liberals, ranked #1 for the first time in history in Nielsen ratings for the week of May 15, both in total viewers and in the 25-54 age group that advertisers salivate over.
Fox News, the pride of conservatives, finished third. CNN fit in above Fox and below MSNBC.
Rachael Maddow’s live show and repeats both were #1 in their time slots.
MSNBC has been hitting the Trump camp scandals hard. Fox News takes a more protective stance.
Fox News founder Roger Ailes is dead. His right-tilted cable channel is having health problems, too.
