We have reached the tragic endpoint of President Trump's war on truth.

Baseless "Trump won" conspiracy theories continue to fill up social media feeds and far-right-wing TV shows.

And Fox News shows are reacting to this far-right pressure.

Newsmax's narrative is that the election is not over, the media is wrong, Biden is weak, and Trump is strong.

According to Newsmax's talk shows, the president is still in it to win it, and big breaking news might be right around the corner.

Kelly assured the audience that "the president has some of the best lawyers in the country working for him. " Morris boldly stated that "I believe that this election was absolutely stolen. " Kelly responded, "I agree with you," and "I feel like something is going to break our way, in a big way, very very soon. " Later in the hour, he told Ellis that "tens of millions are rooting for you. "

But Newsmax is offering an alternative: A fantasyland where, in the words of 8pm host Grant Stinchfield's first guest, convicted liar Roger Stone, "it's pretty evident that President Trump actually won a majority of all legal votes cast. "

Trump has promoted OANN more than Newsmax over the years, and he did so again on Monday, tweeting "Try watching @OANN.

But Newsmax IS rated, and its shows are putting newfound pressure on Fox. At 7pm on Friday, for instance, Kelly averaged 168,000 viewers in the key cable news demo of 25- to 54-year-olds, while Martha MacCallum's Fox show "The Story" averaged 328,000 viewers in the demo.
