Rachel Maddows Conquers Cable News With Informed Facts, Analysis & Civic Truth

All key news channels have higher ratings in the time of Trump. But MSNBC as a network and Rachel Maddow as the front person for informed analysis and less spin -- in contrast to say the ego-consumed Chris Matthews on 'Hardball' -- is showing the boys club how it's done.

The July 21, 2017 Nielsen ratings put The Rachel Maddow show not only in a dominant position in the 9 pm time slot but with an audience that exceeded competitors Fox News  'The Five' and CNN's Anderson Cooper combined. Maddow clocked 2.938 million total viewers last Friday, compared to 1.987 million for Fox and 1.073 million for CNN.
