CNN Is Taking A Massive Hit In Ratings Over Anti-Trump Propaganda In Wake Of The Presidents Success
It’s been a humiliating time for CNN’s big executives. The “most watched” and “most trusted” name in news is currently taking a hit in viewers across all demographics. The network has fallen dead last in both daytime and primetime hours. Most speculate that it’s CNN constant negative coverage of Trump while they actively ignore the actual news.
The disapproval of CNN’s distracted coverage really is widespread. The Hill wrote:
CNN’s warped obsession with reporting about supposed adultery demonstrates a larger problem at the once-proud and groundbreaking channel.CNN’s focus is not on news, but on distracting itself and the nation’s news consumers with peripheral and sensation gibberish that fails to enhance the national dialogue. In the run-up and aftermath to the recently passed government spending bill, CNN mentioned McDougal and Daniels more than three times as often as the spending bill. The spending bill, of course, isn’t photogenic, but it impacts citizens way more than a playmate model.
To be fair, it’s not just Cuomo’s show killing the network’s rating. CNN is experiencing a deficit across the board. People are sick of the constant negative coverage of President Trump and the lack of reporting on actual news. Given Trump’s economic success, what leg do they have to stand on?
Most troubling for CNN executives — “Cuomo Prime Time” finished its first week with viewership down 9 percent compared to CNN’s 9 p.m. programming the same week last year. In addition, Friday’s episode lost 23 percent of the viewers who tuned in for last Monday’s much-heralded premiere.
The program, anchored by Democratic political scion Chris Cuomo, finished well behind both Fox News’ “Hannity” and MSNBC’s “The Rachel Maddow Show” despite the CNN host landing high-profile, first-week interviews with former New York City Mayor turned Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani and White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders. The initial week of “Cuomo Prime Time” averaged 1.1 million total viewers, while Maddow averaged 2.6 million and Hannity averaged 3.2 million, according to Nielsen.
The beat-down also was significant when it came to younger viewers. Cuomo averaged only 377,000 viewers among the key demo of adults age 25-54 for his inaugural week while Maddow averaged 519,000 demo viewers, according to Nielsen.
