Woke news broadcaster MSNBC lost 33 percent of its primetime viewers during its coverage of the Israel Hamas war.
The outlet’s viewer figures were down 24 percent overall for the four days between October 7 and 10 which saw the outbreak of war between Israel and Hamas terrorists.
‘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.
More than 1,200 Israelis have been killed by Hamas attacks, and 1,100 people have been killed by Israeli counter strikes on Gaza, unlike other outlets MSNBC has insisted on publishing a joint death toll.

MSNBC has come under fire for its coverage of the atrocities in Israel with an an Israeli mother whose two sons were take 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.
Israeli counterstrikes caused destruction in western Gaza on Tuesday. Israel has mobilized more than 300,000 reservists, tanks and military vehicles before a widely expected ground invasion
Yingst tweeted photos of the destroyed houses inside the kibbutz

The smell was stomach-turning, reporters said, and Fox News correspondent Trey Yingst took viewers inside one of the bullet-scarred and blood-coated homes.
‘You can see the floors are stained with blood,’ he said.
‘It was Saturday morning, around 7am, when militants stormed this village. You can see the weapons they brought with them, extra ammunition, bullet holes in the side of the house and knives on the floor.’
Yingst said the community was ‘littered with bodies’.
‘It is completely destroyed. It looks like some of the buildings were hit with RPGs, explosives.’
He said he came across ‘beds covered in blood’, where residents had been murdered in their beds.
The IDF said some of the victims were beheaded.
Yingst, 30, said it was ‘hell on earth’, describing the scene as the most horrifying he had witnessed in his career reporting around the world. Yingst joined Fox five years ago.
CNN ‘s coverage, often anchored by Jake Tapper, has seen a 17 percent rise in viewers during the first four days of war
CNN’s Clarissa Ward conducted a live broadcast from a ditch near the border to the Gaza Strip after being forced to take cover amid rocket fire
The reporter described a ‘barrage’ of rocket fire over head just moments before she began the broadcast live from Israel
CNN ‘s coverage, often anchored by veteran broadcaster Jake Tapper, has seen a 17 percent rise in viewers during the first four days of war.
The broadcaster’s correspondent Clarissa Ward has also won plaudits for her bravery after being forced to take cover in a ditch as rockets fire overhead near the Israeli border with the Gaza Strip.
Footage showed an out-of-breath Ward lying in a ditch with her face pressed into the ground.
Addressing her news anchor she says: ‘Forgive the inelegant position but we have just had a massive barrage of rockets coming in here not too far from us so we have had to take shelter here by the road side.
‘We are just about five minutes away, Gaza is in that direction. We can hear now a lot of jets in the sky we can also hear the iron dome intercepting a number of those rockets as they were whizzing overhead and making impact.
The iron dome is Israel’s land-based defense system which intercepts rockets and mortars.
Ward explains she is at the location because it was ‘ground zero’ for the Hamas operation and where militants in a pickup truck drove down the street ‘spraying lead’.
She holds up a piece of heavy weaponry casing to the camera indicating that she was about to grab it when the warning came in for the team to ‘hit the deck’.
After showing off the fragment she and her team receive the all clear to get back on their feet and began showing the scene of desolation that remains along the road following the Hamas strike.
