Furthermore, Muir stated his opinion, when he was asked to comment on the impact of the fake news accusation upon the news business as,

“I think if you underestimate the audience, you do so at your own peril. I think Americans, particularly in this moment, are a lot smarter than people give them credit for. They're a lot more engaged than they were before the election, whatever end of the spectrum you're on, people are definitely more engaged than they have been in many, many years ... That is a tremendous byproduct of what was a terribly bruising campaign.”
