Attorney General Bill Barr’s summary of the Mueller report which showed that President Trump in no way colluded with Russia has been out for a while now and the media is still suffering from the news.
Initially, CNN and MSNBC’s ratings plummeted at the news of no collusion, but after several weeks, their ratings STILL have not recovered.
Check out what the Daily Caller reported:
CNN AND MSNBC’S RATINGS STILL HAVEN’T RECOVERED FROM MUELLER REPORT — MADDOW DOWN 17 PERCENT
MSNBC and CNN’s ratings have not recovered from a massive drop after special counsel Robert Mueller concluded his investigation into Russia collusion.
CNN delivered its second-lowest rated week of the year in total day and primetime between April 1 to April 7, according to Nielsen Media Research, while MSNBC had its second-lowest rated week of the year in the key 25-54 age demographic.
1. FNC (2,339,000)
2. MSNBC (1,642,000)
3. HOME AND GARDEN TV (1,223,000)
4. USA NETWORK (1,153,000)
5. TBS NETWORK (1,033,000)
CNN finished 15th in primetime and 8th in total day, falling to Home and Garden TV (HGTV) and Nickelodeon.
Last week’s poor ratings for CNN and MSNBC indicate the networks will have a difficult time bouncing back after spending two years of heavy coverage on the investigation into the Trump campaign’s alleged collusion with the Russian government.
BRUTAL! That’s what they get for reporting Fake News for the past two years. Day after day, CNN and MSNBC (especially conspiracy theorist Rachel Maddow) have peddled radical theories that President Trump colluded with Russia. Now that they were proven to be false, the fake news media is paying for their fake reporting.

Fox News Channel’s prime-time viewership beats CNN again during Thursday’s Julian Castro town hall
Fox News Channel’s primetime viewership numbers beat out the cable news competition once again on Thursday night.
According to Nielson Media Research’s early numbers, FNC bested CNN numbers even during the network’s own town hall event with 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Julian Castro.
Averaging 2.7 million viewers and nearly 500,000 in the 25-54 age demographic, “The Ingraham Angle” numbers more than quadrupled CNN’s town hall in total viewers and almost tripled CNN in the 25-54 age category. CNN town hall’s brought in 654,000 average viewers and 174,000 in the age range.
CNN’s latest town hall ranked third in both categories and was down 41% in total viewers and down nearly 50% in the key 25-54 age demo. Thursday night’s special event for Castro also marked the second lowest-rated weekday primetime town hall in cable news history.
Immediately after the summary of the Mueller report dropped, Rachel Maddow’s ratings plummeted.
According to the Daily Beast, “Maddow, who has consistently vied for the first or second top-rated cable news program, was sixth on Monday evening, down almost 500,000 total viewers from the previous Monday, as was MSNBC’s second top-rated program in primetime, ‘The Last Word With Lawrence O’Donnell,’”
I guess that’s what happens when you peddle a conspiracy theory for two years and it ends up being completely false!
