Don’t report the news accurately and people will start to catch on.
It may take longer for certain viewers but a lie always becomes a truth.
CNN is in a VERY baaaad way.
CNN, which finished No. 12 across cable in total prime time viewers, posted +13% year-over-year growth in the daypart. That’s more growth than its cable news competition. On the downside, CNN was -7% in total viewers across total day, despite earning a top 10 ranking in that daypart (No. 9).

How cool is this?! Other networks can't fix what they won't acknowledge is broken.
Happy for @FoxNews. They win – we win!

Upon hearing that CNN lost in the ratings last week to a channel called Investigation Discovery, what is your first reaction?

Certain people think Fox News viewers are imbeciles:
Soooo….the ‘ol Dukes of Hazzard TV watchers and WWF fans aged and found a news channel they could relate too. FOX viewers aren’t after news. The want attractive blonds in short dresses, small words and hateful entertainment. News quality is an afterthought.

Are these demo splits able to analyze length of viewing? It has long been my belief (need to back up with study) that #FauxNews viewers are basically watching non-stop from 5pm-11pm with little exception. Especially 8-10pm.

Check out what’s happening with Rachel Maddow at MSNBC…
From Fox News:
One day after finishing May with its worst ratings since Donald Trump took office, the lefty pundit’s eponymous program faced a Vanity Fair bombshell report that the New York Times didn’t want its reporters appearing on Maddow’s show, not because her ratings were down, but because she was too far left, even for them.
The New York Times had reportedly blocked its reporters from appearing on “Maddow” because the program is too partisan, with one insider from the Grey Lady’s newsroom agreeing, telling Fox News “it rubs off” on any journalist who is too closely aligned to the far left.
“I do think Maddow, and others on MSNBC, have very strong opinions that affect their ability to tell stories in an accurate way sometimes,” the source said. “You don’t get tainted just by appearing [on the show], but it’s better to err on the side of trying to maintain objectivity and caution.”
The insider said colleagues at the paper are divided as to whether or not appearing on Maddow’s show would actually damage their reputations. Many of the Times’ top reporters are aware and “rightly sensitive” about the paper’s reputation of leaning left, the source said, and appearing on “Maddow” makes it hard to convince people otherwise.
More from Gateway Pundit on CNN’s decline…
Meanwhile, CNN’s prime-time ratings have crumbled again, dropping 16% last month. The liberal network’s prime-time viewers averaged 761,000 viewers. Worse, the network’s viewers total viewers daily dropped to only 559,000 viewers. Fox News, meanwhile, averaged 2.3 million prime-time viewers and more than 1.3 million total day viewers.
CNN has been nuking conservative contributors over the past several months. Last week, the network fired former Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli after reports emerged that he was in the running for a Department of Homeland Security post in the Trump administration.
The network also canned economic analyst Stephen Moore after Trump said he was going to nominate him to serve on the Federal Reserve Board. CNN and other outlets reported about old comments Moore made about women and President Obama and his wife, Michelle Obama, and Moore withdrew his name from consideration.
