Nielsen Ratings Don’t Look Good for CNN; Here’s How Much They’ve Dropped

Americans don’t have as short of a memory as CNN producers would like to believe, it seems.

CNN has had a rough couple of years. I mean, it can’t be easy for them to maintain credibility when the President of the United States regularly exposes their blatant biases. It also can’t be terribly helpful that they seem entirely convinced their blatant bias isn’t so blatant.

The lack of self-awareness with which CNN has continued to push out their preferred narrative has been mind-blowing, and yet they still plug away at it, despite not only a well-established lack of public trust in the network, but a continuously dwindling audience as well.

Nielsen Media Research reports are demonstrating that as Fox News continues to dominate the cable news wars, CNN is falling far behind, experiencing a major collapse in May.

In ratings data released Wednesday by Nielsen Media Research, FNC extended its run of consecutive months at number one to a staggering 197, while building hitting another impressive milestone: Fox News Channel has now beaten every other network in basic cable for 23 months straight, based on total day ratings, with an average total day audience in May of 1.4 million viewers.

In prime time, Fox News destroyed its competition, with an average total audience of 2.381 million viewers, compared to MSNBC’s 1.384 million and CNN’s 835,000. Among viewers 25-54, the group most coveted by advertisers, FNC shook off a challenge in recent months from MSNBC to claim a clear victory: 461,000 viewers, well ahead of MSNBC (329,000) and CNN (265,000).

“Of all the cable news networks, CNN experienced the biggest decline in primetime viewership, down a full 25 percent in May,” Breitbart notes, explaining that the difference between viewership between the major cable news networks is stunning:

Fox News’ Sean Hannity averaged 3.261 million viewers per evening, while Rachel Maddow of MSNBC took a distant second with 2.627 million.

As reported by Breitbart News’ Editor-at-Large John Nolte, CNN’s highest-rated program, Anderson Cooper 360,  attracted fewer viewers than all Fox News programs after 6:00 am EST for the month of April.

CNN’s second-highest-rated program, Erin Burnett OutFront, had only 965,00 total viewers, putting the show in 27th place.

There was no apparent distinction between viewers watching at home and viewers who are stuck watching CNN at the airport or the gym.

Every day, CNN’s slogan “the most trusted name in news” becomes more and more pathetically ironic. Their biased coverage of the 2016 election and the contrast between the way they covered the Obama administration and the way they’re covering the Trump administration is too stark to ignore.

Americans don’t have as short of a memory as CNN producers would like to believe, it seems.

US Women’s Soccer Team Skips Representing U.S.A. at Opening Ceremony

The ultra-woke U.S. women’s soccer team — big losers thus far — decided to skip representing the U.S.A. during the Olympics opening ceremonies.

The ultra-woke U.S. women’s soccer team — big losers thus far — decided to skip representing the U.S.A. during the opening ceremonies at the Tokyo Olympics Friday. The famously anti-American soccer team claimed that they could not attend because they were scheduled to attend practice during the opening event, according to WXIA-TV. “Obviously we can’t be there, I don’t know who scheduled us to practice at this time,” chief anti-American team star Megan Rapinoe told the media. The women’s soccer team was all about protesting against the U.S.A. during its first Olympics game this week but lost to New Zealand in a crushing 3-0 final. Rapinoe added that this year’s gams are different than past games. “It looks quite different and feels quite different than in the past, but all of us are thrilled to be here,” she said. Team members Abby Dahlkemper and Rapinoe enacted a lame “private parade” and posted it to Twitter: https://twitter.com/USWNT/status/1418557013739536390 The America-hating women’s soccer team was not the only American team that skipped the opening ceremonies. Both the women’s and the men’s U.S. gymnastics teams also skipped the ceremonies. They similarly held their own version of the parade” https://twitter.com/InsideGym/status/1418539840564572160 Follow Warner Todd Huston on Facebook at: facebook.com/Warner.Todd.Huston.

Kid Suicides, Mental Health Hospitalizations Surge Worse than Coronavirus During Lockdowns

Kids have had it particularly bad during the coronavirus lockdowns, but not because of the virus, because of the lockdowns.

New research has found that kids have had it particularly bad during the coronavirus lockdowns, but not because of the virus, because of the lockdowns themselves. Kids ended up dying of suicides and being hospitalized for mental health illnesses at a high rate, according to a new study. Once again, we see that this “cure” was far worse than virus ever was, especially for young people. Per Just the News: Jeanne Noble, director of COVID response in the UCSF emergency department, is finishing an academic manuscript on the mental health toll on kids from lockdown policies. She shared a presentation on its major points with Just the News. Suicides in the Golden State last year jumped by 24% for Californians under 18 but fell by 11% for adults, showing how children were uniquely affected by “profound social isolation and loss of essential social supports traditionally provided by in-person school,” the presentation says. Children requiring emergency mental health services jumped last year in Children’s Hospital of Oakland, and children’s hospitalizations for eating disorders more than doubled at UCSF Children’s Hospital. In January, the latter’s emergency department (ED) at Mission Bay hit a record for “highest proportion of suicidal children in ER” at 21%. The study authors charged that the CDC is bringing serious harm to children with its coronavirus policies. Just the News added that kids are facing more than the virus. They are also facing an “atrophy” of the interpersonal skills because of masks and lost school time, and they are suffering great bouts of depression. It is even harder on teens, especially those close to graduation, because they face a stymied start to college, or their careers. This also brings severe depression.
