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.

A black man brutally beat an elderly Mexican-American woman on an L.A. bus reportedly because he thought she was an Asian woman. A 70-year-old woman of Mexican heritage was riding on an L.A. bus last week when, according to police, 23-year-old Yasmine Beasley attacked her. The victim’s family says that the attacker yelled an Asian slur at her as he attacked. “The victim’s son reportedly says that a female passenger, described as ‘black,’ called his mother an anti-Asian slur and then attacked her,” according to a report by KTLA. The woman’s family says that the man beat her in the face, severely hurt her lag, and pulled out some of her hair. Photos of the woman shows her face is heavily bruised. Per the station: The Mexican American victim was profiled as Asian by her attacker, who hurled a racial epithet used against people of Chinese descent before attacking the grandmother as she got off the bus to go grocery shopping, according to the son, who gave his name only as Pete. Beasley was charged with felony battery charges. Police reports show that Beasley is being held on a $130,000 bond and is due in court on Friday.

A Perfect Example How the Media Lies to Push a Left-Wing Agenda

Venture capitalist and novelist J.D. Vance has the perfect example of how the biased media lies to push their left-wing agenda.

Venture capitalist and novelist J.D. Vance has the perfect example of how the biased media lies to push their left-wing agenda. Vance, who wrote the popular book Hillbilly Elegy, reports that he decided to quit the board of directors of Kentucky green energy company AppHarvest. But after he resigned, the left-wing media began pushing the fake news tale that he left the board under a cloud because Bloomberg caused the company to force him out. This claim that he was forced out is a provable lie. But despite the truth, outlets including the Cincinnati Enquirer, The Lexington Herald Leader, The New York Post, Bloomberg and the Associated Press and more all pushed the lie as if it was incontrovertible fact. Bloomberg claimed that Vance was forced out because he posted “controversial tweets” which had prompted the Bloomberg to ask AppHarvest to account for Vance’s tweets. But this is false. Vance did post tweets that leftists would find “controversial,” but they were posted after he left the company. Vance finally went to Twitter to describe how the left-wing media lied about the situation. “Alright, here’s a story about how the media often shapes narratives instead of reporting the truth, and how a small untruth can morph into a lie that’s repeated again and again throughout the media bubble,” Vance wrote Friday on Twitter.
