Trump Effect: CNN Ratings Just Tanked…By Double Digits!
Turns out Americans don’t care much for FAKE NEWS!
We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: CNN will not survive 8 years of President Trump.
The battle between Fake News and Trumpism is coming to a head and only one will survive.
My bet is on the 70+ Million Americans who want REAL NEWS, real reporting, no bias, and true journalism.
Of course, we haven’t had most of those things for years. But perhaps with Trump, we may be restoring the First Amendment to what the founders intended.
I’m optimistic because August ratings just came in and they had a whopper in store for CNN!
That’s right, we’re talking DOUBLE DIGIT losses.
Americans have had enough and they’re voting with their remotes!
Here are more details, from Breitbart.com:
Far-left CNN took a double-digit ratings dive in August even as Fox News and MSNBC grew parts of their respective audiences.
Nielsen Media Research reports that perennial ratings loser CNN had a terrible August despite a banner news month, reports the Hill.
While Fox News notched its 200th consecutive month at number one in cable news and gained in primetime viewers (when compared to this same month last year), CNN lost -12 percent of its primetime viewers and a whopping -15 percent of total day viewers.
Fox News averaged 1.3 million total day viewers (down -4 percent) and an incredible 2.3 million primetime viewers (up +4 percent).
MSNBC averaged 1.04 million total day numbers (down -4 percent) and 1.845 million primetime viewers (up +1 percent).
CNN, however, is once again well behind its competition with just 705K total day viewers (down -15 percent) and 1.05 million primetime viewers (down -12 percent), which averages to less than half of Fox’s primetime viewers.
In all of basic cable, Fox was again number one (for the 26th consecutive month), MSNBC was second. CNN, however, came in sixth, behind Fox, MSNBC, HGTV, USA, and the History Channel.
The news was just as bad for CNN in the advertiser-coveted 25-54 age demographic.
During primetime, Fox was down -9 percent in the demo, while both MSNBC and CNN were down -17 percent.
In the total day demo, Fox dropped -17 percent, MSNBC fell -16 percent, and the bottom fell out of CNN with a -24 percent drop.
CNN promoted Chris Cuomo to boost is humiliating primetime ratings but, compared to that time slot last year, the far-left Cuomo is down -12 percent.
CNN’s ongoing credibility and bias problems have no doubt injured the anti-Trump network, but things are probably going to get worse. The biggest story CNN has broken in months — a story about President Trump knowing in advance about the Trump Tower meeting — has imploded on the already-embattled network and is taking one of CNN’s biggest names, Watergate reporter Carl Bernstein, down with it.
The Trump Tower story is not only fake news, Bernstein and his co-authors (including CNN anchor and former Obama official Jim Sciutto) have been caught lying about who their source was.
The CNN story says that Lanny Davis refused to comment on the story, but Davis was a source for the story, a source who is now publicly recanting everything.
How about YOU?
