The two networks Fox News and CNN were reported to have grabbed the second and third position respectively.
MSNBC star Rachel Maddow appeared on the late show with Stephen Colbert on the night when her show was rated the number one on the network.
She in talks to Colbert said that her show and the network has a lot to do with Trump governing policies.
Well, Fox has been claiming that they only have got all the answers to scandals, leaks, investigations, and everything that has to do with Donald Trump.
But here Rachel said that for the first time, Fox is criticized for suggesting those claims late, and here we are at number one.
When Colbert asked Maddow that is it possible all the claims of ties with Russia could be just nothing but a hoax.
Well, the claims of contacts between Trump and Russia to this point can be nothing but coincidences. Which is some of that admirable, actually fair and balanced journalistic restraint during a Trump administration at least apparently translates into big ratings.
Taking a deep breath, she said, “We have to decide if we’re that country or not, and I don’t think we are.”
