One year after Shep Smith made headlines when he stepped down as a star anchor on Fox News to abruptly leave the network, it’s being reported that his new show on CNBC is bombing in the ratings. Ever since “The News with Shepard Smith” premiered on September 30 on CNBC, ratings have steadily declined despite the fact that the news
While campaigning for Joe Biden in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on Wednesday, Barack Obama brutally mocked Donald Trump for what he described as the president’s “secret Chinese bank account.” Deadline reported that Obama said the circumstances surrounding this would be much different if this revelation had been made about him. “How is that possible? A secret Chinese bank account. Listen, can you
President Donald Trump spoke out on Monday to blast the “dumb bastards” on CNN, specifically targeting host Chris Cuomo, who he once again referred to as “Fredo.” While speaking to an outdoor audience in Prescott, Arizona, Trump accused CNN of hyping up the coronavirus pandemic in an attempt to depress voting. “You turn on CNN, this is all they cover. COVID,
Please respect our republishing guidelines - Click Here Reports that NBA Finals ratings have sunk to unprecedented depths may be traced to the Black Lives Matter politicization of the game that has sparked fan boycotts. The same may be true for Major League Baseball. But there is a contributing factor that goes into this overwhelming reason for spectator
The National Football League is a racial justice, Neo-Marxist supporting organization. They’ve been that way behind the scenes for several years, but only recently with the rise of Black Lives Matter dominating the world of entertainment have their fullest intentions been felt. They put accused rapists and drive-by shooters on their helmets. They kneel in “solidarity” and rail against the common-sense notion that all lives matter. And they’re paying the price for being so “woke” in the form of reduced viewership. According to Breitbart: Whoever advised the NFL that turning their games into a showcase for leftist activism was a good idea, should be probably be declared non-essential. NBC’s Sunday Night Football showcased two of the best franchises in the NFL over the last decade, despite that, the ratings crashed by nearly 20 percent. “Pulling in 12.22 million viewers in the early metrics and 3.5 in the ratings between 7 -11 PM ET, last night’s big NFL game was down 17% in audience and 25% in the demo from the early numbers of last week’s SNF official season debut,” Deadline Hollywood reported. That hometown win on September 14, 2020 by the LA Rams over the Dallas Cowboys shifted up a bit to 18.94 million viewers and 6.2 ratings for the Comcast-owned network and the league in the final numbers.” The NFL has suffered tremendous drops in viewership and ratings, particularly among their primetime offerings, since their return nearly two weeks ago. Last week’s Sunday Night Football match-up between the Cowboys and the Rams, suffered a 28% drop in ratings. The problem is that it’s not enough. Dropping 17% is significant, but the league will feel as if it’s more of a short-term rebuke than a long-term loss of their fan base. Moreover, it’s not a significant enough drop to make them reconsider their stance. It’s still a small enough portion of their overall viewership to fly under the radar of advertisers and sponsors who have flocked to them over the decades as heavy draws for consumers. For their ratings to only drop 17% means there are many patriots who disagree with the ideology the NFL is espousing but they’re not willing to abandon the sport until they change. They’re continuing to watch, and that’s a problem. When we watch, we are supporting their messaging, their ideology, and their agenda. Our EIC echoed this sentiment on Twitter. Ah, the NFL. Imagine being so woke that you put an accused rapist's name on your helmet. Now, imagine being so complacent that despite not supporting their message, you still watch their games, increasing their ratings and helping them demonstrate that they're righteous. — JD Rucker (@JDRucker) September 21, 2020 We need more. We need them to truly feel the heat if they’re going to change they’re ways. And if they won’t change their ways, then we mus be willing to abandon them altogether. There are better ways to entertain ourselves. COVID-19 may take down an independent news outlet Nobody said running a media site would be easy. We could use some help keeping this site afloat. Colleagues have called me the worst fundraiser ever. My skills are squarely rooted on the journalistic side of running a news outlet. Paying the bills has never been my forte, but we’ve survived. We have ads on the site that help, but since the site’s inception this has been a labor of love that otherwise doesn’t bring in the level of revenue necessary to justify it. When I left a nice, corporate career in 2017, I did so knowing I wouldn’t make nearly as much money. But what we do at NOQ Report to deliver the truth and fight the progressive mainstream media narrative that has plagued this nation is too important for me to sacrifice it for the sake of wealth. We know we’ll never make a ton of money this way, and we’re okay with that. Things have become harder with the coronavirus lockdowns. Both ad money and donations that have kept us afloat for a while have dropped dramatically. We thought we could weather the storm, but the so-called “surge” or “2nd-wave” that mainstream media and Democrats are pushing has put our prospects in jeopardy. In short, we are now in desperate need of financial assistance. The best way NOQ Report readers can help is to donate. Our Giving Fuel page makes it easy to donate one-time or monthly. Alternatively, you can donate through PayPal as well. We need approximately $11,500 to stay afloat for the rest of 2020, but more would be wonderful and any amount that brings us closer to our goal is greatly appreciated. The second way to help is to become a partner. We’ve strongly considered seeking angel investors in the past but because we were paying the bills, it didn’t seem necessary. Now, we’re struggling to pay the bills. This shouldn’t be the case as our traffic the last year has been going up dramatically. June, 2018, we had 11,678 visitors. A year later in June, 2019, we were up to 116,194. In June, 2020, we had 614,192. We’re heading in the right direction and we believe we’re ready talk to patriotic investors who want to not only “get in on the action” but more importantly who want to help America hear the truth. Interested investors should contact me directly with the contact button above. Election year or not, coronavirus lockdowns or not, anarchic riots or not, the need for truthful journalism endures. But in these times, we need as many conservative media voices as possible. Please help keep NOQ Report going. Check out the NEW NOQ Report Podcast. American Conservative Movement Join fellow patriots as we form a grassroots movement to advance the cause of conservatism. The coronavirus crisis has prompted many, even some conservatives, to promote authoritarianism. It’s understandable to some extent now, but it must not be allowed to embed itself in American life. We currently have 8000+ patriots with us in a very short time. If you are interested, please join us to receive updates.
