Don't you just love the lack of self-awareness in this paragraph?

Who in the whole wide world, goes to CNN for news, not indoctrination!!!!!?

Before Trump's loss, the 7 p.m. hour was occupied by a conservative newscast hosted by Martha MacCallum. But in the wake of Trump's defeat, when its viewers did not want to hear the truth about the election results, Fox started losing ratings ground to some of its right-wing competitors on cable and felt audience pressure to change its programming.

    "New programming strategy"?!

    No. Not really. Not surprisingly, CNNís characterization of Fox's previous 7:00 hour is inaccurate.

    Most likely what's going on is that the show, THE FIVE, had the top cable rating for the fourth quarter of 021. It's not even a prime time program and Watters is one of three regular hosts. Fox launched the phenomenally successful GUTFELD! from THE FIVE. Why not promote Watters?

    The truth is that people can't wait to watch Fox these days. Fox often has higher ratings than CNN and MSNBC combined, and that's without a regular 7:00 program.
