1) Fox News Channel is once again #1 – CNN loses 90% of its viewers

Fox News Channel kicked off the new year as the No. 1 basic cable network from Jan. 3-9, 2022, as CNN saw staggering declines, shedding nearly 90% of its early 2021 audience in multiple categories.

CNN averaged 2.7 million viewers from Jan. 4-10 last year as the network experienced a brief post-election spike but plummeted to only 548,000 average viewers last week, for a stunning year-over-year drop of 80% of its total audience.

During the same time periods, Fox News averaged 1.4 million total viewers last week for only a 15% drop compared to the first full week of 2021, when a jam-packed news cycle that included the Capitol riot ensued. Fox News has now outdrawn CNN and MSNBC combined for 21 straight weeks. Fox also outdrew NFL-heavy ESPN’s 1.1 million viewers to finish as the most-watched basic cable option.

House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer revealed Tuesday that the White House is going to ask Congress for a “substantial” sum in the form of an “emergency” supplemental funding bill to deal with the impact of the Omicron variant in the U.S.

During the pandemic, Congress has spent more than $5 trillion in 3 separate stimulus bills. The national debt has hit $29.7 trillion and is fast approaching $30 trillion for the first time, according to the latest Treasury Department data.

The Maryland Democrat cited more funding to increase access to COVID-19 testing as a priority as well as vaccine distribution in the U.S. and abroad.

3) Biden just sent 308 million dollars straight into the waiting arms of the Taliban

The White House announced plans Tuesday to send more than $308 million in humanitarian assistance to Afghanistan as millions face starvation under the new Taliban government following President Joe Biden’s withdrawal.

“This brings total U.S. humanitarian aid in Afghanistan and for Afghan refugees in the region to nearly $782 million since October 2021, and we remain the single largest donor of humanitarian aid in Afghanistan,” Horne said, adding that the U.S. has also given 4.3 million COVID-19 doses to the Afghan people.
