Other than the National Football League, there are few organizations that have endured as much self-inflicted damage to their brand during the Trump years than CNN.
The self-proclaimed “most trusted name in news” has become a parody of what a real “news” organization should be due to a relentless crusade to nullify the results of the last presidential election and effectively disenfranchise 63 million Americans who voted for President Trump.
Not only is the top level of CNN’s on-air staff comprised of activists, biased millionaire celebs like Anderson Cooper, Wolf and Jake Tapper and disruptive bigoted clowns like April Ryan, Don Lemon, and the asinine attention-starved Jim Acosta but it has now become synonymous with the term “fake news” that Big Media created to destroy the competition in the alternative media.
One almost has to wonder whether president and CEO Jeff Zucker is smoking illegal substances because under his “leadership” the once proud brand has been diminished to the point where it is regularly getting creamed in the ratings by the likes of Nickelodeon.
Here’s more from The Daily Wire, “You Won’t Believe How Bad CNN’s Ratings Have Gotten!”:
CNN spends each day bashing the living daylights out of President Trump.
Turns out, hardly anyone is watching. Even pro wrestling gets better ratings than Wolf Blitzer.
For the week of Aug. 13 to 19, CNN ranked No. 8 in primetime and No. 6 for total day viewership, according to Nielsen Media Research.
“The network’s 1.01 million total viewer average in prime time is -23 percent vs. the same week last year, and its 686,000 total day viewer average is -24 percent vs. last year,” TV Newser reported.
That’s right, CNN has lost a quarter of its viewership compared to the same time last year.
In primetime, CNN was crushed (again) by Fox News, and handily beaten by MSNBC, Home and Garden Television, ESPN, History, Discovery Channel and USA Network (which often airs World Wrestling matches during primetime).
In total day viewership, CNN fell again to Fox, MSNBC, Home and Garden Television, and Investigation Discovery, and Nickelodeon.
If those ratings don’t prove that “CNN SUCKS” it’s hard to see what does.
Don’t expect a course correction either. Captain Zucker is hellbent at sailing his ship of fools right into the iceberg.
