THOSE CREEPY CUOMOS: Female Viewers Abandoning CNN Host in Droves

The fallout continues to take shape…

There is no denying that human beings are quite fond of imbuing their surroundings with feeling.  We assign emotion to the people and places of our lives whether we like to or not, and being reminded of such and such in any new experience can often steer our first impressions.

If you find that your blind date is wearing the same perfume as your awful, terrible, no-good ex-partner, that’s going to affect you.  If you find out that your home was the site of a gruesome murder, you’re going to have a feeling about that.

Or, if the guy you get our editorialized “news” from is the brother of a serial sex abuser, you might think twice about tuning in every night.

Female viewership of CNN’s “Cuomo Prime Time” took a dive last week after anchor Chris Cuomo’s brother, Andrew Cuomo, was found by New York Attorney General Letitia James to have sexually harassed 11 women. Andrew Cuomo resigned as governor of New York Tuesday while CNN’s Cuomo was on vacation.

Before he departed for his annual birthday trip, however, women departed his show: Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday of last week — after the Tuesday morning announcement of James’ findings regarding the governor — “Cuomo Prime Time” averaged 453,000 total female viewers, of whom just 76,000 were in the advertiser-coveted age demographic of 25 to 54, according to Nielsen Media Research ratings data. (Cuomo was off Friday.)

The numbers were stunning.

In total female viewers, that’s a 21% decrease from his second-quarter average of 570,000 and in the demo, it’s a 41% decrease from his second-quarter average of 128,000. Year-to-date, total average female viewership was down last week by 45% and was down in the demo 61%. Compared to the same four days last year, “Cuomo Prime Time” was down 48% in average female viewers, falling from 878,000, and was down 64% in demo-age female viewers, falling from 213,000.

Chris Cuomo has admitted to using some of his media resources to help coach his brother though the optics of the scandal, which, in turn, merely added a new dimension to the ordeal.

CNN Makes Absurd Claim About ‘Fake Electors’ Plot

Dig deeper, however, and you’ll find that this is simply a ‘one source said’ situation.

Published

When it comes to American politics, there is one thing that has become increasingly clear in the modern era:  Accuracy is not as impactful as a bodacious headline.

We are a nation bereft with drama, particularly as it pertains to our political sphere, and we are certainly suckers for hyperbole.  The mainstream media feeds of of this reality, whipping us into ever more fraught frenzies for the sake of ratings.

This week, the big “reveal” that CNN teased was some nigh-unbelievable plot regarding “fake electors” and Rudy Giuliani.

Officials on Donald Trump’s 2020 campaign, led by his lawyer Rudy Giuliani, oversaw efforts to put forward illegitimate electors from seven states that the former president lost, CNN reported on Thursday, citing three sources.

There were multiple planning calls between campaign officials and Republican Party state operatives with Giuliani being involved in at least one call, one source said, in efforts to stop Joe Biden’s victory when Congress met on Jan 6, 2021.

Of course, “one source said” is not exactly a profound endorsement of such a wild claim, and should be taken at face value.

This didn’t stop CNN from running with the story, however, and it even prompted a tirade by Anderson Cooper in primetime.

Major Conservative Personality Flips on 45: ‘Trump is Done!’

Are they really this out of tough with the Republican Party?

Published

on

On the right side of the aisle, there are few storylines as trite and tawdry as that of former President Donald Trump’s potential bid for reelection in 2024, and all of the strange circumstances that go along with it.

First, Trump is battling a number of challenges to his political career.  There is not only the January 6th select committee, that appears to be aiming their efforts at having Trump prosecuted in the coming months, but there is also the New York State Attorney General, who is investigating the Trump Organization and attempting to attack the former President through the targeting of his children. 

But now there are other issues for Trump, particularly as Florida Governor Ron DeSantis appears to be posturing himself for a run at the GOP nomination himself.  Trump has been quoted as wondering why DeSantis won’t simply support his own efforts, and the Sunshine State lawmaker has responded brutally.

This has led one of America’s most recognizable conservative pundits to speak up.

 Conservative pundit Ann Coulter is predicting the end of Donald Trump’s hegemony in the GOP, saying the former president “is done.”

“Trump is done,” Coulter, a onetime Trump booster turned critic, wrote in an email to The New York Times. “You guys should stop obsessing over him.”

Coulter’s comments came in an article published in the Times on Sunday about the mounting tensions between Trump and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) amid speculation of a potential showdown for the 2024 Republican presidential nomination.

This wasn’t the first time that Coulter has attacked Trump in recent days.

Coulter pounced on Trump over those comments in a tweet last week calling the former president a “liar and con man.”

“EXCLUSIVE: Trump is demanding to know Ron DeSantis’s booster status, and I can now reveal it,” Coulter wrote. “He was a loyal booster when Trump ran in 2016, but then he learned our president was a liar and con man whose grift was permanent. I hope that clears things up.”

While this certainly may make it seem as though Trump is facing some sort of serious threat to his potential nomination, polls have nearly universally shown him as the odds-on favorite for the 2024 nomination, besting even DeSantis by a vast number of points.
