American viewers are apparently not all that impressed by CNN’s 24 hour anti-Trump propaganda and Fake News and it’s now showing up in the ratings.
When will CNN learn that their reporting is not being taken seriously because the personal bitterness and vendetta of their journalists against Trump is far too obvious?
Far-left CNN took a double-digit ratings dive in August even as Fox News and MSNBC grew parts of their respective audiences.
Nielsen Media Research reports that perennial ratings loser CNN had a terrible August despite a banner news month, reports the Hill.
While Fox News notched its 200th consecutive month at number one in cable news and gained in primetime viewers (when compared to this same month last year), CNN lost -12 percent of its primetime viewers and a whopping -15 percent of total day viewers.
Fox News averaged 1.3 million total day viewers (down -4 percent) and an incredible 2.3 million primetime viewers (up +4 percent).
MSNBC averaged 1.04 million total day numbers (down -4 percent) and 1.845 million primetime viewers (up +1 percent).
CNN, however, is once again well behind its competition with just 705K total day viewers (down -15 percent) and 1.05 million primetime viewers (down -12 percent), which averages to less than half of Fox’s primetime viewers.
In all of basic cable, Fox was again number one (for the 26th consecutive month), MSNBC was second. CNN, however, came in sixth, behind Fox, MSNBC, HGTV, USA, and the History Channel.
The news was just as bad for CNN in the advertiser-coveted 25-54 age demographic.
During primetime, Fox was down -9 percent in the demo, while both MSNBC and CNN were down -17 percent.
In the total day demo, Fox dropped -17 percent, MSNBC fell -16 percent, and the bottom fell out of CNN with a -24 percent drop.
CNN promoted Chris Cuomo to boost is humiliating primetime ratings but, compared to that time slot last year, the far-left Cuomo is down -12 percent.
CNN’s ongoing credibility and bias problems have no doubt injured the anti-Trump network, but things are probably going to get worse. The biggest story CNN has broken in months — a story about President Trump knowing in advance about the Trump Tower meeting — has imploded on the already-embattled network and is taking one of CNN’s biggest names, Watergate reporter Carl Bernstein, down with it.
