CNN just received some bad news that will have Donald Trump grinning from ear to ear
CNN stopped being a news network when Donald Trump entered office.
The channel turned into a rapid response propaganda outfit for the Democrat Party.
And CNN just received some bad news that will have Donald Trump grinning from ear to ear.
January 6, 2020 was riding high for the Left.
After overhyping the January 6 riot at the Capitol into an overblown attack on democracy where America survived by the skin of its teeth, CNN surged to first place in the cable news ratings.
But one year later and CNN’s decision to go all-in on anti-Trump agitprop now looks like a losing political decision.
In just 12 months, CNN lost 90 percent of its overall audience as well as viewers in the coveted aged 25-54 demographic that advertisers use to set rates.
The Daily Mail reported, “The once-proud leader in cable news averaged just 548,000 viewers during the week of January 3, a precipitous drop from the nearly 2.7 million viewers for the same week in 2021, according to the most recent ratings.”
“Those numbers were supercharged by the left-leaning network’s coverage of the January 6 Capitol Riot, which resulted in CNN having its most-watched day since Ted Turner launched the news outlet in 1980,” The Daily Mail continued.
“However, on the one-year anniversary of the insurrection, viewers chose right-wing rival Fox as it topped ratings for coverage of the event,” The Daily Mail added. “CNN also saw an 86 percent decline in the much-desirable 25-to-54 demographic, with a paltry 113,000 tuned in last week, compared to the 822,000 CNN averaged a year ago.”
There are rumors of big changes coming to CNN.
The largest shareholder in the media company that merged with CNN would like for the network to drop its mission to advance the left-wing agenda and go back to reporting the news.
Network President Jeff Zucker – the architect of the anti-Trump, all the time strategy – may also be on his way out.
Donald Trump always said these media outlets that covered him negatively also depended on him to survive because without him they could not attract an audience.
In terms of CNN, that turned out to be the truth.
