Newsmax beats Fox again

It happened again: Newsmax surpassed Fox News in the key 25- to 54-year-old demographic for two hours on Tuesday afternoon. At 3pm Newsmax averaged 224,000 in the demo, versus Fox’s 211,000, and at 4pm Newsmax had 194,000, versus Fox’s 186,000. For comparison’s sake, CNN had more than 800,000 in the demo during those hours, so both networks were far behind, but it’s notable to see Newsmax notching wins against Fox. The insurgent channel was lifted up by its live coverage of Trump’s visit to the southern border.
