BREAKING NEWS – New York City, New York – MSNBC’s most popular program, “The Rachel Maddow Show,” continued in May its extended nosedive in the cable news ratings, and some critics say it’s because the show’s eponymous host has spent the past several years misleading viewers.
Maddow’s performance in May was even more alarming among the key demographic of adults age 25-54, where she averaged 455,000 viewers to finish tied for No. 7 in cable news, behind five different Fox News shows and even one program on MSNBC’s fellow liberal network CNN.
Maddow commented on the slippage of her ratings. “Sometimes the news is boring and sometimes it’s not,” she explained. “I have to exaggerate sometimes to keep the viewers interested. Do I outright lie? Of course, and sometimes I get caught, and sometimes I don’t. The truth is, I’m more concerned about advancing my left wing agenda, than getting high ratings. I openly admit that I mislead viewers, but my dedicated fans are compassionate and forgiving. Thus that demographic is the easiest to repeatedly dupe, because I know for a fact, even after they realized that I made them look like fools by repeating something that I fabricated, those suckers will still tune in the following day.”
