Over the course of the Trump Administration, one casualty was crystal clear: CNN. The
most least trusted name in news. In fact, the day Trump coined them #FakeNews, CNN’s fate was sealed.
The big cheat was not enough to save the flailing network. Last months numbers made it painfully public. There’s not much left to lose. And if the latest scandal turns into a lawsuit, the network is screwed.
I previously reported:
As 2021 wrapped up, CNN found itself riddled with scandal. Whether it was about Chris Cuomo or his perverted producer who was caught sex-trafficking a nine year old girl, the network’s lack of competence was on display.
The New Year didn’t ring in any good news either. In fact, it seems things are getting worse. CNN lost 90% of it’s 2021 audience!
Keep in mind, the network has been going downhill for a decade or more. And when Trump branded them the Fake News Network, he sealed their fate.
According to Fox News:
CNN averaged 2.7 million viewers from Jan. 4-10 last year as the network experienced a brief post-election spike but plummeted to only 548,000 average viewers last week, for a stunning year-over-year drop of 80% of its total audience.
During the same time periods, Fox News averaged 1.4 million total viewers last week for only a 15% drop compared to the first full week of 2021, when a jam-packed news cycle that included the Capitol riot ensued. Fox News has now outdrawn CNN and MSNBC combined for 21 straight weeks. Fox also outdrew NFL-heavy ESPN’s 1.1 million viewers to finish as the most-watched basic cable option.
CNN’s eye-popping decline is even worse among the advertiser-coveted demographic of adults age 25-54, as the liberal network shed 86% of its viewers and finished last week with only 113,000 average viewers in the critical category after averaging 822,000 a year ago.
Among the demographic of people age 18-49, CNN shed nearly 90% of its 2021 audience by dropping from 624,000 younger viewers to a dismal 73,000.
With numbers like that, how do these guys get advertisers? No wonder they’re on a firing spree… they probably can’t make payroll. Especially when the Cuomo brothers and their corrupt collusion leaves CNN vulnerable to multiple lawsuits.
Naturally, the firings weren’t enough. This is a network that lost 92% of it’s viewers. Thus, the news finally broke last week when we learned Jeff Zucker resigned. My only thought was “how did that take so long?” Had the network ditched Zucker the moment they realized he had a personal vendetta with Trump, things might not be so bleak for the so-called news giant.
But leftists thought being anti-Trump would put them on top of the world. Of course, anyone who filled their car up with gas lately knows exactly what the top of Leftist mountain looks like! But I digress.
Now CNN faces financial ruins, thanks to their faulty reporting.
They’re Just Making Sh*t Up!
Joe Rogan, the popular podcaster worth more than $100M says the network is spreading lies.
Jim Acosta, leading leftist for the network, accused Rogan of taking horse dewormer to treat Covid-19. I’m going to jump out on a limb here and say they’re talking about Ivermectin.
Here’s what Rogan says:
“Do I have to sue CNN? They’re making s*** up.”
“They keep saying I took horse dewormer,” Rogan explains.
“I literally got it from a doctor,” Rogan fired back. “It’s an American company. They won the Nobel Prize in 2015 for use in human beings, and CNN is saying I’m taking horse dewormer,” Rogan said.
“They must know that’s a lie,” Rogan said, referring to the fact that Acosta is calling it “livestock dewormer ivermectin.”
Of course, Acosta was speaking to Dr. Fraudci when the remarks were made.
“The podcast host Joe Rogan, he came down with COVID. He says he’s been taking the livestock dewormer ivermectin as well as other treatments that people talk about on the internet and so on.”
“Doesn’t have any effect on COVID, obviously,” Acosta said with his arrogant demeanor.
What’s the Verdict?
I’m going to let you in on a little secret.
“The Associated Press had to issue a correction to an article published in late August that claimed 70% of calls made to the Mississippi Department of Health were from people who had ingested the livestock version of Ivermectin,” the Daily Wire reports.
“The story followed media hyping the idea that people were taking a common horse dewormer to treat COVID-19. Someone, somewhere may have done this, but the media has treated it as if it is a common phenomenon — and have been proven wrong,” the report continues.
“In another instance of misinformation, a false news story of an Oklahoma hospital being overrun by patients overdosing on ivermectin was pushed by numerous journalists, commentators, and others. The hospital later released a statement correcting the record, knocking down the claims of a former doctor who left the hospital months ago,” the Daily Wire concludes.
You get the drift. We’ve been bombarded by #FakeNews. Even the White House is forced to admit the covid ruse is over. But this isn’t que será, será, because people weren’t just duped. They were damaged. And now it’s time for the left to pay for their sins. Obviously, people like Rogan have the resources to enforce those consequences.
Who will be first up on the chopping block? My guess, CNN!
