The first quarter of 2020 was filled to the brim with news, from the impeachment trial of President Trump and the contentious Democratic primary to the growing coronavirus pandemic, but MSNBC failed to add viewers, and experts say that’s a serious issue for the far-left network. “This should concern the MSNBC hierarchy,” DePauw University professor and media critic Jeffrey McCall told Fox News. Fox News grew 38 percent among total viewers during the first quarter of 2020 compared to the same time period last year, and MSNBC’s liberal rival CNN grew 26 percent, while MSNBC finished the quarter with roughly the same viewership as Q1 of 2019.
