“Struggling CNN didn’t have a single program surpass the 1-million viewer plateau on Thursday.”
CNN is continuing its post-Trump slide into cable news ratings oblivion. Even their top-rated shows are struggling to gain a respectable number of viewers.
Anderson Cooper, Don Lemon, and Chris Cuomo all failed to reach a million viewers on Thursday.
Brian Flood reports at FOX News:
CNN continues to struggle as entire lineup fails to crack one million viewers
Struggling CNN didn’t have a single program surpass the 1-million viewer plateau on Thursday.
“Anderson Cooper 360” came the closest, averaging 992,000, but the scandal-plagued “Cuomo Prime Time” lost 40,000 viewers and “Don Lemon Tonight” managed only 635,000 to drag down CNN’s primetime average.
CNN averaged only 719,000 viewers during the primetime hours of 8-11 p.m. ET, while Fox News averaged 2.08 million during the same time period. CNN has failed to reach more than 1 million total viewers on 16 different days from June 9 through July 8.
CNN struggled to attract viewers throughout the day, starting with “New Day” attracting an audience of merely 421,000. The liberal network failed to reach even 800,000 viewers until “Erin Burnett OutFront” managed 849,000 at 7 p.m. ET.
Meanwhile, every Fox News program from 7 a.m. ET through the conclusion of “Gutfeld!” at midnight ET averaged more than 1 million viewers. “Tucker Carlson Tonight” led the way, averaging 3.2 million viewers to outdraw all of CNN’s primetime programming combined.
Ten years ago, conservatives complained about media bias. We are beyond that now. With very few exceptions, the media seems more and more like the public relations department of the far left. And this is having a major impact on how the public perceives them.
A recent poll from Rasmussen is the proof. Tim Graham reports at NewsBusters:
SHOCKING Rasmussen Poll: 58 Percent Agree That Media Are ‘Enemy of the People’
This is shocking. The latest phone and online survey by Rasmussen Reports found voters overwhelmingly believe “fake news” is a problem, and a majority — 58 percent! — agree with former President Donald Trump that the media have become “the enemy of the people.”
To be precise, Rasmussen found that 58% of likely U.S. voters at least somewhat agree with the statement that the media are “truly the enemy of the people,” including 34% who “strongly agree.” Thirty-six percent don’t agree, including 23% who “strongly disagree.” Fully 76 percent of Republicans and 61 percent of independents agreed.
They also asked:
Do you trust the political news you are getting? They found 37 percent say they trust the news they’re getting, compared to 43 percent who don’t trust it, and 20 percent who are not sure.
This is a problem entirely of the media’s own making, and they are showing no desire to fix it.DONATE
