We start today with a piece by Variety’s Andrew Wallenstein and Gavin Bridge: “21% of Fox News Viewers Trust Network Less After Texts Revealed in Dominion Lawsuit: Survey.”

That’s quite the headline, although the same survey shows only 9% say they are watching the network less these days. The research was provided exclusively to Variety Intelligence Platform by consumer insights specialists Maru Group. In the piece, a Fox News representative said advertising and viewership levels had not been impacted.

One more interesting note from the survey. Following Rupert Murdoch’s testimony and private messages being made public, 13% of Fox Viewers said they no longer felt the 2020 election was stolen. Meanwhile, 50% still believe it was, while 37% said it had no impact and they still believe the election was fairly held. Check out the Variety story for more details.
