MSNBC doesn’t have just two stars in Rachel Maddow and Lawrence O’Donnell.
Ari Melber is the news network’s dark horse.
On Monday Melber beat Fox News’s Bret Baier in the key demo age range. He did the same thing on Wednesday.
The Monday story is particularly interesting because Baier had his big interview with Saudia Arabia’s Prince Mohammed Bin Salman, the man who ordered the chopped up journalist Jamal Khashoggi and got away with it. Baier went light on MBS, letting him deny his involvement in the disgusting, gruesome murder without argument.
I guess the 25-49 year old crowd wasn’t interested in Fox News pandering to MBS and the Saudis. Instead they watched Melber.
On Wednesday, Melber won the key demo again. He had the first post conviction interview with Trump henchman, Peter Navarro. You can see it below.
