They still haven’t figured out this simple fact… they can lead the resistance, or they can have ratings.
If their ratings collapse continues, pretty soon they won’t be able to do either one.
Since November 2016, CNN has doubled down on one thing, and one thing only.
Resist President Donald Trump. Throw as many obstacles as they can possibly manage in his path, and try to turn America against him.
It’s a time-tested plan that worked really well for Dubya, after Katrina, right?
Here’s the problem.
The things they are throwing at Trump consist mostly of lies, half-truths, conjecture and innuendo.
Not exactly the best way to uphold that ‘most trusted name in news’ slogan, is it? Seriously, how many times a day can even the most haggard viewers of CNN stomach ‘Russian Collusion’ stories and their pet Creepy Porn Lawyer?
That would explain the current state of CNN’s alleged viewership.
How bad was it?
CNN’s highest-rated show — Anderson Cooper 360 — pulled in, on average, a paltry 888,000 viewers throughout May. That was good enough for #26 on the ratings charts.
Let’s put that in perspective.
Over on Fox News, there was only one show — and that one aired at 4am! — that did NOT beat Anderson Cooper’s numbers.
Seeing how there’s no way for Tech Giants to compel anyone to watch CNN, or stifle alternatives, this is a measurement of how many people are watching CNN voluntarily.
Which is to say… not many.
Even Shepherd Smith — Fox New’s resident Lefty — hammered Cooper’s numbers, with 1.35 million.
So much for the Left’s gleeful mocking back when Bill O’Reilly and Megyn what’s-her-face left the network.
Fox is doing just fine, thank-you-very-much.
It’s CNN circling the toilet.
They’re officially a laughing stock.
These news networks have one product… credibility. Without that, they have nothing.
And yet, they continually keep getting busted pushing fake news.
By way of example, here are a few ‘best of’ their ‘worst of’…
Witness their deeply informative and relevant reporting:
International events? Trade? Domestic policy? Nah.
What about the criminal aspect of those leaks and unmaskings? Any of that interest you?
Or the IRS admitting to being weaponized against Tea Party (you used a much more vulgar term) groups?
Soros attempting to turn America into his own private Gotham City-style syndicate by attempting to buy the elections of specific politicized Prosecutors?
George Soros’ quiet overhaul of the U.S. justice systemProgressives have zeroed in on electing prosecutors as an avenue for criminal justice reform, and the billionaire financier is providing the cash to make it happen.
Nope. Nothing like that would be newsworthy.
But wait — did you hear the latest gossip about Trump…?
CNN’s ongoing ratings crisis has now reached the point where the far-left anti-Trump channel was unable to place a single show in the top 25 throughout the month of May.
Worse still, the Stormy Daniels Network did not have a single show that managed to attract an average of even 900,000 total viewers, much less a million.
As my colleague Joshua Caplan reported earlier this week, the overall picture for CNN is disastrous. Even as Fox News climbed in the ratings, the hate-spewing CNN collapsed when compared to last year, a calamitous drop of -25 percent of primetime viewers.
If this trend continues, “nothing-burger” won’t just describe their programming and content… it will describe the network itself.
Get Doug Giles’ new book:
Rules For Radical Christians is not a survival devotional designed to help the young Christian adult limp through life. Rather, it is a road-tested, dominion blueprint that will equip the young adult with leadership skills and sufficient motivation to rise to a place of influence in an overtly non-Christian culture. Rules For Radical Christians gives the reader the keys to become strategically equipped to move into an anti-theistic environment and effectively influence it for the glory of God.
CNN — all the news that’s fit to flush.
