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.”

Fox Business News daytime is zapped by NewsMax because their sister station Fox News leftward shift has polluting FBN ratings by association. It is also a somewhat apple-orange comparison of political news to the blahs of stock market news. FBN’s main comparitor should be Bloomberg until the afternoon market close.
Oddly, in my politically biased view, even FBN’s occasional non-financial day time news is OK. NewsMax like OANN is a welcome alternative to the five ‘Fake News’ channels.

We are no longer FOX viewers based on their obvious sever move to the lef. We gave NewsMax a try and are sticking with it! Move over FOX and accept at least the 35% drop in viewers and will also give AAN a shot along with OAN.
