Nov. #’s: FNC Is The Only Cable News Net To Lose Viewers Vs. Last November

FNC’s November ratings release headlined the fact that “Fox News Channel retains largest share of audience post midterm elections.” But in an e-mail to TVNewser, a cable competitor calls it a pathetic claim:

“Fox’s fancy number crunching is a day late and a dollar short. They are desperate to mask the fact that Fox News was the ONLY cable network to lose viewers this month over last November. And when they say they ‘retained more’ since the midterms, this actually means they didn’t have as high of a peak on election day from which to fall. Seems that Fox News’ continuous slide in the ratings just keeps going on and on…”

> Update: 5:51pm: A Fox News spokesperson responds: “Between falling off a cliff after election night and losing the demo race to MSNBC, we can’t blame CNN for being a little bitter.”
