Something strange happened to CNN as soon as Donald Trump left office

No media outlet during the Trump administration personified the change from news organization to partisan mudslingers more than CNN.

President Trump and the network waged battle on a daily basis.

But now something strange happened to CNN as soon as Donald Trump left office.

In the month of January, CNN was the top rated cable channel ending Fox News Channel’s near 20 year run at the top.

Trump-hating liberals could not get enough coverage of Trump’s impeachment and eventual flight back to Mar-a-Lago.

But when Trump left the White House, CNN’s audience also left.

The first week of Biden’s administration saw CNN’s ratings decline by 44 percent.

Variety reports:

In the first week of the Biden administration, the AT&T-owned news channel saw the audiences that had been flooding into primetime recently drop precipitously on Jan. 25-29 compared with the highs of previous weeks. Meanwhile, rival Fox News Channel saw its own ratings only dip slightly after weeks of registering its own sharp declines.

Another network that has been characterized as left-leaning, MSNBC, has also seen significant declines but nowhere near as steep as what has hit CNN: Variety Intelligence Platform’s analysis of the viewership data across two key metrics—the target news demographic for people ages 25-54, and the total audience watching—shows that CNN ended the final week of January with ratings dropping roughly 44% for total audience versus the prior week across all three hours of primetime.

One reason CNN is out calling all Trump supporters domestic terrorists and claiming that Georgia Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene is the greatest threat facing the Republic is that CNN needs to create new villains for the audience to hate so they keep watching.

The early returns show CNN is failing at that task.
