The 2016 presidential election has reportedly helped boost traffic for NBC and Fox news.
This seems not too surprising, considering how huge of an event the American presidential election is in general, particularly throughout this latest cycle.
Overall, I think many news organizations have benefited in some way from election coverage, even at a local level. Considering there were several elections going on at once throughout many states. Whitewater, as an example, voted for the President, Wisconsin’s U.S. Senator, the 43rd district representative, a referendum on school funding, and several small office candidates for the City of Whitewater (such as the city treasurer).
