The battle of the cable news all stars is starting to wear down the once most powerful network in news. CNN, the chronicling outlet of the first Gulf War, is losing viewers left and right.
One Breitbart analyst blames that loss for the network’s constant, and very repetitive, hatred of all things Donald Trump in their rhetoric.
Throughout the week of February 5, CNN could only scrape together an average 674,000 total day viewers. During the all-important primetime hours, CNN averaged only 888,000 viewers.
Those numbers not only put CNN in last place behind MSNBC and Fox News, it puts the 24/7 Trump-hating channel in last place by a country mile.
In total day, the openly left-wing MSNBC averaged 972,000 viewers (compared to CNN’s paltry 674,000). Fox News, however, nearly beat both CNN and MSNBC combined with 1.529 million average viewers.
During primetime, MSNBC smoked CNN by nearly a million viewers — 1.747 million (compared to CNN’s 888,000). Fox beat both MSNBC and CNN combined with a whopping 2.605 million.
Oops. That is most definitely going to effect advertising revenue.
But, the viewers of the main cable network is just one of the problems at CNN. The online platform has had issues. Many people have lost their jobs as revenue dropped and operations were streamlined. Then there’s all that fake news….
To begin with, MSNBC does not lie to its viewers. It advertises itself as an openly left-wing network, while CNN — which is even further to the left than MSNBC — continues its ridiculous pose as objective and unbiased.
Worse still, CNN cannot seem to stop lying to its viewers. CNN chief Jeff Zucker has created a veritable Fake News Factory over there, a wildly hypocritical one that has undermined all of its reporting and moral authority. If you are going to pose as a news outlet, your reporting must have credibility. Nobody believes anything CNN reports, nor should they.
The American people seem to have decided to look elsewhere for their news.
There is also a little matter of something that is over-hyped in this country. “Hate.” There is so much of it, the people are avoiding it like the plague. CNN, in contrast, can’t stop hating.
And that, in the end, might be why We the People have changed the channel.
