This might make Jim Acosta cry on air.
Not like anyone would see him.
CNN has been the target of President Trump’s ire as the symbol of ‘fake news’.
As we’ve said before here on ClashDaily, everyone has a bias.
CNN, however, has claimed that they are an unbiased, just-the-facts news outlet. If you watch 10-minutes of CNN you can tell that that’s not true. They shape the stories, they selectively report.
It’s been most apparent in the differences between coverage of the Trump Administration vs. the Obama Administration.
CNN has vilified President Trump, decided not to cover much of the success of the administration, and they glossed over or simply didn’t report President Obama’s scandals.
Don’t even get me started on Hillary.
CNN’s Brian Stelter went on and on about the alleged ‘disappearance’ of Melania Trump but has said nothing about Hillary’s very evident back brace, her frequent falls, or her seemingly constant illnesses and injuries. Discussing anything like that when Hillary was running for President was denounced as ‘conspiracy theory’. Suggesting that the First Lady might have been abused by the President? Well, that’s standard reporting.
No wonder CNN is bleeding viewers.
President Trump has noticed and pointed it out in a pithy and rather harsh tweet:

That’s gonna leave a mark.
Here is the tweet that President Trump retweeted:
Fox News has been #1 for 197 months straight. In the latest ratings disaster for CNN they lost another 25% of their viewers. Fox has 10 of the top 15 shows and even hold the #1 spot in the younger key demo. The public is loudly rejecting @CNN. https://t.co/y1RMI5LW8j

The last paragraph of the Forbes article is absolutely brutal. (Emphasis added)
In May, prime-time viewership for the cable news networks was down overall except for Fox News, which grew 6% from the same period last year. CNN had the biggest declines, down a full 25%. Among viewers 25-54, Fox News was up slightly (+2%) while MSNBC fell significantly (-21%) and CNN dropped by more than a third (-34%).
It looks as though folks are catching on to CNN’s bias and ditching them for other networks that are up-front about theirs.
CNN — all the news that’s fit to flush.
Are you tired of the fake news that spews forth from CNN and the lame-stream media? Well, you don’t have to put up with their crap anymore! Clash Daily is proud to release a very special brand of toilet paper!
Send to your liberal friends so that they can wipe their minds clear of the waste produced by the Communist News Network!
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.
