Trump’s Fox News Wuhan Coronavirus Town Hall Broke Cable News Records

Trump’s Fox News Wuhan Coronavirus Town Hall Broke Cable News Records

In spite of the MSM’s best efforts to stifle his message, President Trump is getting through to the American people on the Wuhan Coronavirus outbreak.

Though the mainstream media wants everyone to stop listening to President Trump’s Wuhan coronavirus outbreak updates, the American people are still tuning in.

Fox News conducted a virtual town hall on Tuesday with Trump and several members of the White House Coronavirus Task Force. It turned out to be the most watched town hall in the history of cable news networks, eclipsing another Trump town hall the network did earlier this month:

President Trump’s virtual town hall hosted by Fox News on Tuesday set a record as the most-watched town hall in cable news history with an average of 4.4 million viewers, the network announced Wednesday.


The 4.4 million who watched on Tuesday beat a record set just earlier this month, also by Trump and Fox News. The president’s March 5 town hall on the network was the then-highest rated in cable news history, reportedly hitting 4.2 million viewers at its peak.

Fox News later saw an average of 4.7 million viewers during primetime coverage on Tuesday, it said, beating out MSNBC’s 3 million and CNN’s 2.3 million.

This is on top of the fact that the daily White House press briefings have also been a hit with millions of people, bringing in viewership numbers that are on par with the season finale of “The Bachelor” and Monday night NFL games.

Numerous polls released over the last week including this one from Gallup also show the American people approve of Trump’s handling of the Wuhan Coronavirus crisis. In fact, his overall approval ratings are now at record highs, which is a source of great frustration for a mainstream media that is used to setting all the narratives.

To complicate matters for the press corps is the news that their ratings, in contrast to Trump’s, are in the tank:

Americans are generally positive in their evaluations of how each of nine leaders and institutions has handled the response to the coronavirus situation. Eight of the nine receive majority positive ratings — led by U.S. hospitals, at 88% approval. Only the news media gets a more negative than positive review.

These data are from a March 13-22 Gallup poll, with the field period starting on the same day President Donald Trump declared a national emergency over the coronavirus outbreak, and spanning sharp increases in the number of documented cases in the U.S., as well as the number of deaths.

By the numbers:

What these daily press briefings have shown those watching at home is not just how Trump and the task force are handling the crisis, but also how the White House press corps absurdly frames questions. I can’t imagine things like asking Trump “how many deaths are acceptable?”, if he’s giving people “a sense of false hope”, and obsessing over Trump’s use of the term “Chinese virus” have helped the media much in the court of public opinion.

The MSM’s worst nightmare has come true: In spite of the their best efforts to stifle his message, President Trump is getting through to the American people on the Wuhan Coronavirus outbreak. Nothing the media does, not even refusing to air the daily press briefings, is going to change that.

In case you missed it, here’s the Fox News town hall that aired earlier this week:

Don’t worry. Fox is allowing the hypo-telegenic chief executive of only one state, Andrew Cuomo, to drone on interminably, in an attempt to counterbalance the charismatic success of our President. Think we can’t figure that out, Fox?

    Don’t worry about Fredo’s brother.
    He’ll go down in flames too, once he gets more face time. Just look back a few weeks ago to see how the NY party apparatchiks were handling things then.

This is also why he’s on Twitter so much, so he doesn’t get filtered by the swamp.
Twitter must hate that they are the vehicle for some of his communications but he’s too big of a draw for them to censor. Can’t live with him, can’t live without him.
Meanwhile, Uncle Joe is sitting in his basement and the Democrat controllers would like to silence him too.

Giving Andrew Cuomo air time in comparison to DJT is dumb like a fox. Let’s just give him the national stage, and see what he can do with it.

That reporter’s gotcha question, “How many deaths are acceptable?“ turned out to be a softball that made the reporter look ridiculous.

In all this, the left are coming across as being opportunistic. Il Duce Pelosi with her stunt of trying to hijack the relief bill, and king Cuomo might talk a decent game, but he is an intellectual lightweight.

Trump is talking to people who are shut in and shut down by the governors of their states, which is giving them the opportunity to hear Trump more directly. When you remove the propagandist filters on President Trump he shows he is not the person the propagandists keep claiming he is. It shows in his poll numbers.

Cuomo won’t likely garner National appeal, despite the efforts of the propagandists to try to promote him over Dementia Joe.

100% correct about Trump and Twitter, NGAREADER. I hate Twitter but Trump knows it is essential for him to have a medium of communication not distorted by the MFM.

The Fox Town Hall broke records because the public KNOWS and wanted it straight. It no longer will stand for the DeMedia’s unending puerile and transparent distortions; the public KNOWS the media is less trustworthy now than in Stalin’s ERA — except for the NY Times (a constant since the 30’s). Instead of being Stalin’s shills, the press are Xi’s shills now. Simultaneously despite the public’s preference Rachel gives them thumbs down. Surreal Arrogance and by what authority does she speak ? Trump has baited them enough so that they will defend the indefensible.
