This week, conservative news broadcaster Newsmax reached a milestone in its rating by beating Fox News for the first time in the adult age group between 25 and 54. It was part of a meteoric rise for the young network after the November election as it attracted conservative viewers who were disappointed with the election results and Fox News’ decision to declare Joe Biden the winner. Saturday Night Live tonight skewered Newsmax’s newfound success by not calling Biden’s President-elect and supporting Trump, who in turn promoted it.
“Great news! Millions of real Americans are switching from Fox News to Newsmax because Newsmax is telling them the truth that Donald Trump might still win this election,” read a promo at the start of the skit Sportsmax. Sportsmax is a network for real Jets fans that gives you the truth about America’s favorite football team. “

While Jets are currently 0-12 for the season, a Sportsmax pundit (Beck Bennett) claimed they won 11 games. Investigating one of Jets’ losses, he stated that the New York team actually won because they took the lead after the first quarter. Then “something suspicious happens” and “the whole game has been rigged”, a reference to Trump’s statements that he won states that was called for Biden because he led on election night.
Two Jets pundits, played by hosts Timothée Chalamet and Pete Davidson, drew a parallel to Kayleigh McEnany’s pile of affidavits on alleged election fraud and held “affidavits from 500 Jets fans who swear they saw the Jets win”. You will deliver a speech reflecting further arguments from Trump and his team, followed by an excerpt from another Newsmax offshoot, Weathermax.
