Conservative media outlet Newsmax has shattered another ratings milestone, surpassing Fox Business in daytime ratings:
Newsmax CEO Chris Ruddy has his finger on the pulse of President Trump’s most ardent supporters, while Fox News’ has slipped with a few notable exceptions.
The monolithic mainstream media has finally noticed Newsmax’s rise and now seems determined to turn Ruddy into the next Roger Ailes-esque villain. “When that happened, suddenly I became crazy,” Ruddy noted.
Ruddy also explained what it would take for Newsmax to declare a winner in the presidential election. Laying out his approach, he said, “We’re going by the state certifications, that’s done after the recounts are called … we’re not doing what Fox News did and the other major networks, which was [declare a winner] simply based on projections when you have such a close race.”
