Thanks Stephen. I heard a lead-in on the radio news earlier today. So when I got home I was glad to have this link to check it out.

I'll comment more later (after I read it all - it’s long the audio takes 1 hour 19 min). But for now I checked on this statement within Mayer’s story.

Hemmer argues that Fox—which, as the most watched cable news network

Nielsen Cable News Ratings for 2018 (01/01/18-12/30/18) vs. 2017 (12/26/16-12/31/17)

Fox News: 2,434,000 total viewers (+1 percent); 463,000 A25-54 (-5 percent)
CNN: 988,000 total viewers (-6 percent); 323,000 A25-54 (-12 percent)
MSNBC: 1,802,000 total viewers (+10 percent); 352,000 A25-54 (-5 percent)

Total Day:
Fox News: 1,425,000 total viewers (-5 percent); 282,000 A25-54 (-12 percent)
CNN: 706,000 total viewers (-9 percent); 214,000 A25-54 (-16 percent)
MSNBC: 994,000 total viewers (+12 percent); 197,000 A25-54 (-3 percent)

Hemmer is right. Fox News is the most watched whether it be Primetime shows or Total Day shows; or all ages or ages 25-54. That is scary, imo

But it seems that MSNBC is improving 2017 - 2018 (+ 12% for “total day") while Fox News was down -5% (CNN the most centrist network, was down -9%). Look also at the first plot at Plots. (difficult to copy here). MSNBC has been catching up ever since Trump’s election.

And among working age people (25-54), the viewership of all ages, PrimeTime or Total Day is down.
