Fox News attracts nearly as many ObamaCare Summit viewers as other four news networks combined

It’s becoming increasingly difficult for the left to explain Fox News’ dominance every time new ratings come out. The most recent spin seems to boil down to, “Oh, #%$@.” reports the ObamaCare Summit ratings rout:

Fox News Channel drew the most viewers during yesterday’s health care summit, by far. During the summit hours (9:45am-5:30pmET), FNC drew more Total Viewers and A25-54 demo viewers than CNN, MSNBC, CNBC, and HLN combined.

FNC, which did not interrupt the feed from the summit’s start until the 1pm lunch break, drew its most viewers in the 11amET hour, as did MSNBC. CNN drew the most in the 4pmET hour.

CNN, which had the second most viewers, was up +98% against its year-to-date average for the 10am-5:30pmET hours. MSNBC was up +75% and FNC was up +45%.

The White House says 3.9 million users streamed the summit at its website.

(Note: MSNBC only carried the summit until 2pm, and HLN and CNBC did not carry it in full).

The left contends that only stupid Republicans watch Fox News. But they’re going to need a new argument since that one now leads to the inescapable conclusion that the country has more Republicans than Democrats.
