NEW YORK – FEBRUARY 15, 2018 — FOXNews.com outpaced CNN.com in the number of page views for the first time ever with 1.43 billion multi-platform total views in January, outperforming CNN.com by 21 million views, according to comScore in addition to beating NewYorkTimes.com and the WashingtonPost.com. FOXNews.com experienced a 20% increase from the prior month while CNN.com only increased 15% to 1.4 billion views over the same time period. With 90 million unique users in January, Foxnews.com also surpassed the New York Times as the third biggest online news destination, after CNN and The Washington Post.

We have always had the most loyal audience and are now pleased to say we have the most engaged online viewership as well. Congratulations to our dedicated team for overtaking CNN.com, despite their massive head start in digital, just as FNC surpassed CNN’s on TV more than 16 years ago.”
