MSNBC has lost a large chunk of its audience due to its biased coverage of the Hamas attack on Israel over the course of this week.
The leftist outlet’s viewer figures were down 24 percent overall for the four days between October 7 and 10, when the conflict between Israel and Hamas terrorists began.
Meanwhile, Fox News’s audience jumped 42 percent, and in CNN’s coverage saw a 17 percent rise
“These numbers tell you a lot about MSNBC, which excels at Trump-era liberal therapy but can’t match others during global historic events,” Puck media reporter Dylan Byers wrote.
The New York Post reported:
The liberal media continues to run interference for Hamas and its atrocity campaign in Israel.
Witness MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell asking an Israeli mother of two children taken hostage during Friday’s terror raids, “What are your feelings about the attacks against Gaza right now?”
The lefty host was clearly looking for her guest to echo Mitchell’s own equivocation on the issue.
But the mother responded, with justifiable anger: “You’re looking for a symmetrical situation. I can’t be sympathetic to animal human beings — well, they’re not really human beings — who came into my house, broke everything, stole everything, took my children from their bedrooms and took them to the Gaza Strip. Israel has never done that, and it will never do. So there is no symmetry!”
Precisely correct: Between Israel and Hamas, there is no symmetry.
And there never will be, no matter how hard the US left tries to pretend otherwise.

The Daily Mail reported:
MSNBC has come under fire for its coverage of the atrocities in Israel, with an an Israeli mother whose two sons were taken hostage by Hamas exploding at MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell on Tuesday night when asked how she feels about Israel’s counterstrikes in Gaza.
Renana Gomeh, whose two sons, age 12 and 16, were kidnapped by Hamas, became visibly irritated when Mitchell asked her feelings on the attacks in Gaza.
‘I can’t be sympathetic anymore. I can’t be sympathetic to animal-human beings — well, they’re not really human beings — who came into my house, broke everything,’ said Gomeh.
‘Stole everything, took my children from their bedrooms and took them to the Gaza Strip.’
By contrast, Fox News reporter Trey Yingst has won praise for his fearless coverage of the shocking scenes unfolding in the Middle East.
The Israeli Defense Force took reporters, including Yingst’s Fox News crew, to Be’eri, just three miles from the Gaza border, on Tuesday.
The kibbutz was known as an artistic and farming community of 1,200 people, but on Saturday it was overrun by Hamas terrorists who attacked with grenades, guns and knives.
The site was not declared safe for outsiders until Tuesday: all the bodies of Israeli victims had been removed, but the burnt and mangled corpses of Hamas fighters were still lying in heaps on the outskirts of the kibbutz.
