This is a historic record according to Médiamétrie. News channels are the big winners in this craze. Médiamétrie, the organization responsible for measuring television audiences, is amazed. In March 2020, the French spent 4.29 hours in front of their television set, compared to 3:45 a year ago. A gain of almost three quarters of an hour a day.

Over the past month, many Fox News anchors and personalities have gone from doubting the seriousness of the coronavirus pandemic to calling it a public

On Thursday, "The Daily Show" correspondent Desi Lydic attempted to recreate the experience of watching Fox News in order to incorrectly explain the ins and outs of the coronavirus pandemic in a web-only gag called "Foxplaining."

In the clip, which was also reminiscent of Jordan Klepper's short-lived "The Opposition," Lydic said she's been binge-watching Fox News for 48 hours, and so it is she attempted to explain the crisis in a style reminiscent of the conservative news channel's style and tone.

"First off, the World Health Organization? Or as I like to call it the world HELL organization," Lydic began, "tag teams with the communist Democrat Republic of China. Whose president by the way has the same barber as George Soros. Coincidence? Yeah, if you're Chuck Schumer maybe."

Coronavirus: Trump's press briefings are increasingly worrying his advisers

 Coronavirus: Trump's press briefings are increasingly worrying his advisers © REUTERS / Yuri Gripas Donald Trump during his daily press briefing in the White House on April 10, 2020. This Friday, the American president has once again reiterated its wish to see the economy start again, without however giving a precise date for a possible lifting of the precautionary measures. Experts are worried about such a prospect that would risk relaunching the pandemic, already far from being brought under control in the United States.

The FOX News Rundown is a news -based daily morning podcast. FOX News also produces FOX News Sunday on FOX Broadcasting Company and FOX News Edge. A top five-cable network, FNC has been the most-watched news channel in the country for almost two decades.

In US news and current events today, President Donald Trump was peddling misleading coronavirus info in an interview with Fox News . Trump is making up his own stats when it comes to the coronavirus . President Trump is following his ‘hunch’ on coronavirus instead of listening to experts

Then she talked about Dr. Anthony Fauci, or as she called him, "'Doctor' Fauci." "You know where this guy went to school? Burisma," a reference to unproven claims about Joe Biden's son, Hunter Biden.

"Hillary Clinton," Lydic non-sequitured, "or as I like to call her, Hydroxychloroquillary Clinton. That's part one, now, part three: 5G. COVID-19? More like COVID-50."

"This is a pandemic, not a pot-demic. Washington legalizes weed and now they're the first state hit three months before 420?" she continued.

Other highlights from the (very funny) video:

"What does the G in 5G stand for? Gluten."

"Democrats want to vote by Quibi? Huh, uh uh, no. Not in my country."

"Every patriotic American should call their senator and say 'please, let me die.'"

There's plenty more, and it's good stuff. Watch the whole clip above.
