More on this story via Western Journal:
It’s up for debate as to why Fox News seems to own the television cable news landscape consistently. Many believe that CNN and MSNBC became too comfortable with garnering solid ratings during Trump’s presidency, as the networks pumped out a steady stream of usually negative content, creating an echo chamber of anti-Trump propaganda that their viewers craved.
There’s also an argument to be made that, at the end of the day, people are simply more interested in truth and transparency and not just another network carrying the Biden administration’s proverbial water.
Whatever the case, Fox News is nothing short of a blessing, as it’s difficult even to fathom the things we’d never know if we only had the left-leaning networks to provide us with information.
