Mainstream Media Ratings TANK After RussiaGate Results

The news for “the news” is not looking good.

It’s no secret that the mainstream media has been fortunate throughout the past two years.

Donald Trump’s unorthodox, often chaotic, always bombastic presidency has netted them pure gold in the form of ratings and rage.  The “resistance” rhetoric of many outlets was only amplified by the long and wide-ranging Mueller investigation, allowing several talking heads to lambast the President nightly, and with a fervor unlike anything before it.

Now, with Mueller’s report partially vindicating the President, specifically on the “Russian collusion” theory, those same pundits are finding themselves in the company of crickets.

On Monday March 18, four days before the Mueller Report proved her a liar, 2.977 million people tuned in to Maddow’s carnival bark.

This past Monday, the 25th, three days after the Mueller Report proved her a liar, only 2.513 million tuned in, a loss of nearly 500,000 viewers.

And she isn’t the only one taking a hit.

Lawrence O’Donnell — whose show immediately follows Maddow and who is almost as obsessed with deceiving his audience about those damn, dirty Reds — took a similar hit: a drop from 2.2 million to 1.845 million.

Maddow had recently found herself among the top-rated nightly news anchors on mainstream television, thanks in no small part to her constant coverage of the President’s purported collusion, all done with the cadence and wink-and-a-nod humor of a female Keith Olbermann.
