Trump Warns TV News Ratings Will Suffer If He Loses

New York Magazine reports:

Last month, when asked what new goals he would accomplish in a second term, President Trump rambled so incoherently his allies responded with public distress. But now, finally, Trump has an agenda for his second term that he can credibly commit to.

It is almost certainly true: Under a Biden presidency, cable news ratings will probably sag. Fox News will be fine, inventing new ways to whip its audience into hysteria. But CNN and MSNBC, deprived of Trump’s unprecedented stream of scandal, mismanagement, crisis, leaks, and racism, will suffer.

The pre-Trump routine of watching people with good hair and no face mask stand in front of buildings waiting for officials to make anodyne statements will feel intolerably dull after four years of chaos.
