Far-left CNN failed to position even one present within the high 20 in the course of the first quarter of this yr.
Sure, you learn that accurately… Regardless of the impeachment of a president and the coronavirus pandemic, the cable channel America used to mechanically flip to in occasions of disaster couldn’t do any higher than quantity 22.
Fox Information positioned eight exhibits within the high ten and 14 within the high 20. The brazenly left-wing MSNBC crammed these different slots.
CNNLOL lastly arrives method behind its cable information opponents, at quantity 22, with Jake Tapper’s basement-rated The Lead, which nonetheless solely managed to draw 1.387 million viewers. And Tapper in all probability solely did that nicely as a result of a few of President Trump’s well-liked day by day briefings aired throughout his in any other case anemic timeslot.
Sean Hannity topped everybody in the course of the quarter with a mean of 4.22 million viewers, which greater than triples CNN’s high present.
In truth, the one Fox program CNN was capable of beat was Fox and Mates First, which broadcasts earlier than daybreak and nonetheless managed to return in fortieth with 721,000 common viewers. The pre-dawn Fox and Mates First humiliated CNNLOL’s disastrous morning present, New Day, which was solely capable of entice 580,000 common viewers.
Total, Fox Information had its largest viewing quarter within the community’s historical past, averaging 3.4 million primetime viewers and 1.9 million total-day viewers.
CNNLOL was solely capable of common 1.43 million primetime viewers, with MSNBC coming in at 1.93 million.
Fox Information beat each mixed.
Throughout primetime, CNNLOL managed to lose to ESPN (1.43 million in comparison with 1.5 million), though sports activities occasions have been useless for weeks on account of coronavirus cancellations.
If you wish to absolutely grasp simply how unhealthy CNNLOL’s rankings are as of late, this quarter’s hilariously terrible primetime numbers symbolize a 35 p.c enhance over the primary quarter of 2019.
In total-day rankings — and once more, regardless of a presidential impeachment and a worldwide pandemic — CNN couldn’t even entice 1,000,000 viewers, simply 901,000 in comparison with MSNBC’s 1.1 million and Fox’s 1.93 million.
Again to the highest 20… solely six CNNLOL exhibits averaged over 1,000,000 viewers, two simply barely, they usually had been all worn out by Fox and Mates, which managed to common 1.76 million viewers.
At this level, it’s hardly information anymore when CNN performs so poorly. Over the previous six years, below the harmful management of Jeff Zucker, CNN has turn into a nationwide punchline — a shame and embarrassment in rankings and repute.
And now, whereas the nation suffers below the well being and financial disaster attributable to the Chinese language virus, CNN continues to intentionally misinform and misinform the general public.
What’s extra, the more and more unstable pretend cable channel can not even put what’s good for the nation and humanity above its personal petty and partisan feud with President Trump. CNN isn’t solely blacklisting Trump’s day by day coronavirus briefings, it’s trying to disgrace the remainder of the media into doing the identical.
One can actually perceive why CNN would need the briefings blacklisted. Throughout Sunday’s briefing, a CNN staffer was humiliated in entrance of all the nation when Trump caught him red-handed intentionally misquoting him. It was a surprising second, the primary time I’ve ever seen a so-called reporter caught blatantly mendacity after which pressured to show he lied by finally studying — with arms shaking — the true quote.
Throughout Tuesday’s briefing, CNN had an excellent worse second when Dr. Anthony Fauci defined to CNN’s Jim Acosta that the administration did certainly launch its coronavirus mitigation “very, very early.”
That’s one thing CNNLOL needs to cover from the general public.
Who needs to observe a so-called information community that behaves in such a craven and dishonest method?
Properly, as you possibly can see from the rankings… just about nobody.
