Rachel Maddow Narrowly Wins Monday Night for MSNBC, But Fox News Is Killing It Right Now


The last months of Monday nights. Rachel Maddow has led MSNBC to big wins over Fox News.

But Monday night followed a trend of Fox taking the night. Maddow narrowly won over Sean Hannity.

Obviously the audience isn’t getting what it wants from MSNBC on the subject of Israel. I’m surprised. They may be getting it from CNN, which seems to have increased all the prime time shows by around 200,000 during this crisis.

Does MSNBC appear sympathetic to the Palestinian state? That translates in the minds of viewers to supporting Hamas. Let’s hope that’s not the case. The MSNBC people are thoughtful and smart, unlike the Fox News shouters.
