President Trump has often taken to Twitter to praise the Fox News morning program while citing its viewership. Tuesday morning Trump slammed the MSNBC and CNN shows “Morning Joe” and “New Day” while lauding “Fox & Friends” that he said came from treating him fairly.
This is his tweet: Wow! @foxandfriends blew away the competition of Morning Joke (which did very poorly) on MSDNC (Another Comcast sleaze production), and @CNN’s New Day, in the Morning Television Ratings. A total blowout, but that’s what you get when you treat “Trump” fairly! – – Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 10, 2020.
But, the statistics prove his point. In February, “Fox & Friends” marked 220 consecutive months as the top cable morning news program, delivering an average of 1.8 million total viewers, according to Nielsen Media Research.
MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” was second with 1.1 total million viewers, followed by CNN’s “New Day” with an average of 496,000 viewers.
In the key 25-54 demographic, “Fox & Friends” was first with 350,000 viewers, followed by “Morning Joe” with 178,000 viewers and “New Day” with 126,000 in the category.
