"One Lie After The Next": CNN Ratings Hit 9-Year Lows After Reputational Suicide• https://www.zerohedge.com, by Tyler Durden
Of those, just 93,000 were in the all-important 25-54 news demographic.
This is the first time since May of 2014 that the network has failed to reach 450,000 viewers, The Wrap reports.
By comparison, during the same period Fox News drew 1.4 million viewers and 176,000 in the demo while MSNBC notched 629,000 total viewers and 69,000 in the demo. In primetime, Fox News had 2 million viewers, 256,000 in the demo and MSNBC had 943,000 viewers and 91,000 in the demo.
Some especially troublesome news out of this week's Nielsen numbers is that Licht's primary programming move, "CNN This Morning," also suffered the lowest week since its launch just three months ago. It averaged just 331,000 viewers while "Fox & Friends" had nearly 1 million and "Morning Joe" drew 760,000. -The Wrap
As Glenn Greenwald notes, CNN's downfall is "so well-deserved and good for the country."
Just look at this alone:
Everyone who works at CNN knows it spread an outright lie before the 2020 election: the Biden laptop was "Russian disinformation."
Not one ever told their audience it was false or they spread it, let alone apologized for it:https://t.co/kjLH42pIZN
