Newsmax Plans Expansion Amid Anti-Fox News Furor

Reuters reports:

Newsmas plans to hire more staff in the United States and London, debut a new primetime host and add more weekend programming to capitalize on post-election gains and some viewers’ discontent with Rupert Murdoch’s longtime ratings king Fox News.

Aided by shout-outs from Trump on Twitter, Newsmax’s weekly primetime viewership has jumped 68% since the U.S. presidential election as the channel refused to declare Joe Biden the winner and aired debunked theories about voter fraud. Fox News declined to comment.

Newsmax CEO and major Trump donor Chris Ruddy tells Reuters that Americans are furious with Fox News for trying to “torpedo President Trump” by acknowledging that Biden won the election.
