KB| President Donald Trump’s Counselor Kellyanne Conway made an appearance on CNN’s Chris Cuomo’s Thursday evening show. During the interview, Conway accused the leftist journalist of harboring jealousy for Fox News and their soaring ratings.
The conversation turned toward ratings when Cuomo stated that he was not going to let Conway deliver false information to the American people. He went on to say that if she felt like doing that, she should appear on Fox News Network.
“I’m so glad you mentioned Fox [News] because none of you are able to get through most of your shows without mentioning them. It’s not a good look,” Conway shot back.
Cuomo lied, “What are you talking about? I almost never mention them.”
“It’s not a good look to be so jealous of Fox News’ ratings,” Conway responded.
“I’m jealous of the opportunities they get to test power, they just don’t take them. That’s what I’m jealous of,” Cuomo claimed.
Throughout the duration of the interview, the two continued to poke at one another. They spoke about all different kind of subject matter, including Attorney General Jeff Sessions and the booming economy under President Trump.
While the whole interview is a good watch, take a look at the 17-minute-mark to see Conway’s comments about Fox News’ ratings:
We recently reported:
Adweek revealed that Fox News Channel has knocked out CNN and MSNBC when it comes down to weekly ratings for 31 weeks in a row now. It’s old news by now. It’s also not a shock to learn that Fox News beat out prime time television rivals in viewership for the 11th week in a row.
The Daily Caller reports that Fox took the top spot in all of prime time for the week of August 6-12 with 2.18 million viewers on any given evening on average. MSNBC was the closest to Fox with 1.75 million viewers. CNN paled in comparison, only bringing in an average of 992,000 viewers during prime time television hours.
CNN came in seventh on the list, coming in after basic cable networks like Home and Garden Television, which had an average of 1.33 million viewers, USA Network, which had an average of 1.25 million viewers, the History Channel with 1.06 million viewers, and TBS Network with 1.02 million viewers.
Less people are tuning in to watch Anderson Cooper and Chris Cuomo than are tuning in to watch the guys on “Pawn Stars” and “Counting Cars.” Even better than that? The same networks that are raking in more ratings than CNN are airing shows like “Ancient Aliens.”
CNN had better start spending more time focusing on their failing ratings and less time bashing Fox News (a network that has continuously beat them out week after week.)
