More from Fox News:
Stelter’s program was even worse in the advertiser-coveted demographic of adults age 25-54, averaging only 94,000 during the media news-heavy month of October. The show lost 28% of its September viewers in the crucial category and shed 76% of its January demo audience.
Over 600 basic cable offerings including “Charmed to Death,” “Girl Meets Farm,” “Alaskan Bush People,” “Kamp Koral: SpongeBob’s Under Years,” “Baby Shark’s Big Show,” “The Loud House,” “I Love a Mama’s Boy” and “Home Sweet Homicide” outdrew Stelter’s “Reliable Sources” during the month of October among the key demo.
The tiny audience that tuned in Sunday was treated to a lengthy segment in which Stelter openly speculated about what former President Donald Trump, his supporters and some conservative media organizations could do in 2022 and beyond. Stelter dramatically predicted how Trump supporters might behave in the future if Stelter’s biggest fears come to fruition.
“Remember it’s 2023 now, primary season … reporters who try and cover Trump’s lies are jeered and smeared more than ever before. His verbal attacks against the media are so pervasive now that physical violence erupts more often,” Stelter said. “Beatings at rallies, bombs in newsrooms. The bombs don’t explode, but that’s beside the point. Fear is the point.”
