Media bias—liberal or conservative—has always been a reality. But, with increased polarization, which many attribute to the two-party system, it is argued that biased reporting is often used as a tool to favor corporate owners. With that said, one must admit the news source we refer to as our go-to naturally tends to align with our personal inclinations. According to a 2014 Pew study, audiences that lean more consistently towards the conservative perspective prefer the likes of ABC News, CBS News, and Fox News. Whereas cross-sections of the population that are inclined towards the liberal viewpoint prefer the likes of NBC News, MSNBC, and CNN.

Surprisingly, however, a good number of conservatives out there were left rather disappointed with the way Fox News covered the US Election 2020. And, this stroke of fate put Newsmax in the limelight. A good majority of conservative-leaning Fox viewership seemingly tuned into Newsmax instead—a network that was almost always dismissed as a wannabe in the industry eventually won over Fox News. Albeit the margin of this first rating-victory was narrow—with Greg Kelley Reports on Newsmax averaging at 229k and The Story with Martha MacCallum on Fox averaging at 203k. 

Whether or not Newsmax beats Fox at gaining the favor of conservative audiences across the U.S., remains to be seen. Only time will tell if it was Trump recommending Newsmax that was behind the sudden rating surge. Or conservatives have genuinely found an alternative to Fox, which will remain their new go-to-news source—even after Biden assumes his position in the White House, and even if Fox slips back into its Dem-critic mode.

About Newsmax TV

Newsmax has been in the market for more than two decades—from 1998-2014 it existed as an online news portal before being launched as a TV network by founder Chris Ruddy. Ruddy saw a gap in the market for conservative-leaning news media—he believed “there needed to be more diversity of opinion on the right”, and that someone ought to challenge Fox News. So a year later, Newsmax TV had morphed into a full-fledged network. And, in 2019 it was available to an estimated 75 million American households with a pay-tv subscription.

Perhaps the one factor, which has made a significant contribution to the network’s success, is that Ruddy managed to attract a number of ex-Fox News hosts—among them Greg Kelley, Bob Sellers, Heather Childers, and Rob Schmitt. With some of the best in the news industry, Newsmax was bound to air informative and engaging content—and capture wider audiences who were interested in a variety of perspectives within the rightist viewpoint.
