America is finally witnessing the implosion of CNN (Communist News Network) and for good reason. After decades of propaganda and fake news, CNN is finally tanking so bad that even reruns of the children’s cartoon Yogi Bear on Nickelodeon has higher ratings than CNN.
In the month of May, CNN averaged around 821,000 viewers per hour during the day and 1.12 million viewers during prime time. To compare these ratings, FOX News garnered an average of 1.42 million viewers per hour during the day and 2.24 million viewers during prime time. That’s double the viewership of CNN!
However, things were about to get worse for CNN. After getting caught promoting fake news stories again during the month of June, and having producers blast Americans and admit that the entire Russian collusion story was fake news, CNN tanked once more to only seeing 666,000 viewers throughout the day and 882,000 viewers during prime time.
Not only that but as The Federalist pointed out, decades old reruns of Yogi Bear on Nick-at-Nite had higher ratings than CNN.
Even MSNBC had double CNN’s ratings! The networks beating CNN are:
- Fox News Channel
- Home and Garden TV
- USA Network
- TBS Network
- History Channel
- Discovery Channel
- Investigation Discovery
If the trending for CNN is a sign, then it is a sign that they will not be with us much longer. Good riddance.
All of this is a result of the Donald Trump presidency. He has not backed down from calling the news outlet “very fake news” and claiming such media is the “enemy of the American people“; and has even put together an old video of his WWE appearance and substituted WWE owner Vince MacMahon’s face with the CNN logo for a “body slam” video and sent it out over Twitter.
Still, people at CNN like Jim Acosta want to protest the White House by boycotting coverage. Well, Jim, go ahead! It’s apparent you aren’t telling anyone the truth anyway. So get out. Stop covering the White House and let someone do it properly.
CNN has become so bad that they are constantly being caught in lies.
On July 4, the network published a fake quote from Abraham Lincoln, followed by a report on the 6th the falsely claimed German Prime Minister Angela Merkel had chosen the location of the G20 summit to sabotage Trump.
“Over the entire second quarter of 2017, looking at total viewers, only one CNN program placed in the top 20 of all cable news shows, and that was Anderson Cooper’s 360, which landed with a thud at number 20,” wrote John Nolte at The Daily Wire. “For perspective, a repeat of Tucker Carlson’s Fox New hour attracted more viewers than any show on CNN.”
“Furthermore, throughout this same quarter, CNN lost to MSNBC in total and primetime demo viewers,” he added. “This is the first time since 2014 that CNN has lost that demo crown to its leftwing rival. In total viewers last quarter, among all cable news channels, Fox News placed first, MSNBC third, and CNN is all alone in tenth place, just barely ahead of Investigative Discovery, a second-tier offshoot of the Discovery Network.”
Clearly, the fake news that CNN has been touting for decades has paid them well up to this point, but with a president in the White House drawing attention to their lies almost daily, and the alternative media getting involved in exposing it, perhaps this is one of many corporate dominoes that is about to fall.
Speaking of the alternative media. Project Veritas’ James O’Keefe has been at the forefront of exposing some of the corruption at CNN. However, he’s promised to do the same to other corporately controlled news outlets too.
So, while CNN is being pummelled by the likes of Yogi Bear, just keep in mind that Yogi is “smarter than the average bear.”
