Ever since the Russia hoax collapsed, Rachel Maddow has been struggling.
Now we know that she just finished her worst quarter in years, while many of her competing hosts at FOX News are flourishing.
The Daily Caller reports:
Hannity, Carlson, Ingraham Soar In Third Quarter Ratings While Maddow Flounders
Fox News had the top three highest rated cable news shows for 2019’s third quarter, while MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow had her worst quarter in years.
Sean Hannity had the highest rated news show for the third quarter, averaging 3,276,000 viewers, followed by Tucker Carlson with 3,082,000 viewers, Laura Ingraham with 2,629,000 viewers, and finally Rachel Maddow who averaged 2,518,000 viewers, according to Nielsen Media Research. It was Maddow’s lowest-rated quarter since the second quarter of 2016.
Maddow’s September ratings were slightly higher than her third quarter average, bringing in 2,688,000 viewers during the past month, finishing in third place behind Hannity and Carlson, respectively.
This could be the reason that the New York Times Magazine is trying to prop Rachel up with a big story:

This sounds like an article from Babylon Bee. I'm surprised Snopes didn't fact-check it like "No there's no way there's a Maddow cultist serving vegan enchiladas in San Fran"

The best part is how you were able to make the Babylon Bee link look like a NYT link. https://t.co/pJxA3f5ExB

Maddow’s fans are a little bit creepy, no?
