Maddow’s Ratings Plummet After Mueller Report Release

In the wake of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report exonerating President Trump of collusion with Russia in the 2016 election, MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow is suffering her worst ratings month since Trump was elected.

Breitbart’s John Nolte points out that during the first quarter of 2019, prior to the release of Mueller’s report debunking the collusion theory Maddow pushed so hard, she averaged 3.1 million nightly viewers, a figure which place her neck-and-neck with Fox News Channel’s Sean Hannity for the cable news ratings lead.

After the recent release of the report she averaged only 2.6 million nightly viewers — a loss of a half-million viewers — and is struggling to keep out of fourth place, below Hannity, Tucker Carlson, and Laura Ingraham.
