Nielsen data released this week showed Fox News holding its place as the most-watched cable news network in May — a title it has claimed for 197 consecutive months.

The conservative-leaning network has developed a reputation as one of Trump's go-to sources for news, and he's known to frequently comment on news stories after they air on Fox News.

He has also repeatedly attacked CNN and a handful of other news outlets as "fake news," claiming that the network and its reporters are biased against his administration.
