What Ted Koppel Says About CNN’s Ratings and Donald Trump Annoys Brian Stelter

Published

Ted Koppel, a legend in the field of journalism, recently spoke with CNN’s Brain Stelter and delivered a truth bomb of such epic proportions that it left the host absolutely annoyed to no end, which, as you might imagine, makes for excellent television.

Koppel made an appearance on “The Kalb Report” as a member of a panel where he stated that without President Trump, the network’s favorite subject, CNN’s ratings would essentially be in the crapper.

Again, as you can imagine, this ruffled a few feathers.

Trump “has been wonderful for the [media] industry,” Koppel said, adding that former CBS Chairman Les Moonves as well as the head of CNN both admitted that Trump coverage has resulted in a ratings boon.

With that, Stelter got just a wee bit defensive.

“That means what?” Stelter asked Koppel. “If ratings are up, that means what?”

“The ratings are up, it means you can’t do without Donald Trump,” Koppel answered. “You would be lost without Donald Trump.”

Stelter challenged Koppel: “Ted, you know that’s not true.”

But Koppel wasn’t done.

“CNN’s ratings would be in the toilet without Donald Trump,” the former “Nightline” anchor said as the room filled with chuckles.

Stelter, however, was not about to let this go, so he kept the battle raging.

“You know that’s not true, you’re playing for laughs. You’ve lived through enough presidencies to know. There will be more presidents,” Stelter said.

Koppel replied, “Hold on a second, Brian. What were the ratings before Trump, and what are the ratings now?”

This forced Stelter to confess that since Trump has been elected president, the ratings have been up 20 to 40 percent.

A new poll finds that a majority of Americans think that U.S. corporations have gotten far too political and should get back to just selling stuff. We have witnessed a growing number of corporations going woke since Georgia passed its new election integrity law. These corporations are pushing a hardcore, left-wing line of lies against the Georgia and have made all sorts of false claims about the new law. But a recent poll by the Daily Wire finds that a majority of Americans are already sick and tired of the left-wing posturing of these corporations. The Daily Wire poll found that 64 percent of those surveyed are less likely to support these big-mouthed corporations. The poll also found that most Americans did not support the decision by Major League Baseball to pull its All-Star Game from Atlanta. https://twitter.com/guypbenson/status/1379845164169101313 https://twitter.com/guypbenson/status/1379845165897121792 So, why are these corporations doing all this despite the fact that they are pissing off half of America? Well, there are two reasons. First is cowardice. Instead of standing for American free speech and respecting the rights of the states to run their own lives, these corporations are siding with the anti-American left and are engaging in economic terrorism against us. They are doing this not out of principle, though. They are doing it to prevent people from suing them. After all, leftists sue everybody at the drop of a hat. Conservatives almost never do. That means these corporations are guessing that they can escape legal problems by mollifying the left despite angering the right. The second reason is business. These big corporations imagine that if they follow the left, it will help lead to the destruction of their smaller competitors and they will be the last men standing. They also imagine that they can control government through their big…

Cable News Blasted for Conjuring Controversy in Columbus Police Shooting

This is just dirty.

The sad truth of the matter, when it comes to the mainstream media, is that they are more successful when we are more emotional. It’s a dirty trick of human biology:  The chemicals in our brain that allow us to feel joy, sorrow, humor, and fury are just similar enough to one another that we become addicted to them, one and all.  Feeling something stimulates our self-awareness, and we learn to crave it. So, when you tune into CNN and what they are saying angers you, they’re planting small hooks in your noggin, reeling you in to watch the commercials that pay all of their salaries. If you watch Fox, however, and you find yourself enthusiastically cheering after a host or guest has a mic drop moment, your brain again finds what it’s looking for, and here you are seeing your 14th Progressive commercial of the day. All of the big networks know this and actively participate in this salacious shamanism, and sometimes they cross the line. Liberal outlets HuffPost and AJ+ omitted key details or pushed false narratives in their videos about the fatal police shooting of a Black teenager in Columbus, Ohio on Tuesday. HuffPost failed to note the woman who was shot, Ma’Khia Bryant, pushed another female to the ground and lunged at another with a knife when police arrived at the scene. The misleading HuffPo video was accompanied by the following text, which appeared to paint the police as the villain. “Black girl killed by police,” the text read. “Police in Columbus, OH shot & killed a Black teen around the same time the verdict was read in the Derek Chauvin trial. Body-camera footage showed an officer firing several times at Ma’Khia Bryant before she collapsed to the ground. The video also showed a knife falling next to the…
