Fox imploding? NOPE!

Last weekend I attended a conservative political forum moderated by Hugh Hewitt. During the reception I overheard the tail end of a conversation between two attendees:

Middle-aged male: “It’s like Fox News is suddenly imploding.”

Hearing that exchange prompted me to investigate whether their concerns are warranted because as a regular Fox News viewer, I too had similar thoughts. That was until I saw data from Nielson Media Research and learned, Fox News is having its highest ratings year and is stronger than ever!
