Fox News sees biggest ratings slump in 17 years as Donald Trump contradictions go unreported

"SNIP............


There are increasingly two separate realities to view and experience in America right now, depending on whether you get your broadcast news from CNN, MSNBC, CBS etc or Fox News.

While left-leaning news organisations have also been accused of distorting the truth when it comes to President Trump, it is Fox News currently taking the majority of the heat for completely ignoring aspects of the continually developing story in the White House.

Fox News largely avoided covering Trump's revelation of classified information to Russian officials, along with his leaning on James Comey and his four-part, fundamentally contradictory change in explanation for the FBI director's firing.

Perhaps the network's loyal viewers are becoming more aware of its extreme bias and that they need to look elsewhere for certain stories, or perhaps the departure of Bill O'Reilly has hurt it - but either way its ratings are falling.

1. In my sister's neighborhood in Miami

nearly everyone now watches Rachel. My sis and her family and one other neighbor used to be the only Rachel watchers.

6. I'm glad Ronald Reagan went so hard on the 'evil empire' in Moscow

that it still resonates with the GOP base to this day.
