A seldom used Gallup ping...
Oh, that is so schadenfraud!
WHY. 1) CNN has far fewer viewers than it did in the past and we feel that our brand was getting lost and diluted combined with the CNN brand. We have only about 200 thousand viewers during our CNN segments.
Happy trails to you, as we say goodby cnn.
I wish I could recall the poster's name from yesterday or the day before who posted that CNN's ratings beat the other cable's.
Ouch. That's gotta hurt. Hehehehe....
Looks like more people are watching the fish tanks at "Pets'R'Us" than the news on "CNN".
Was it a troll? :-)
No, I don't think so --- he had info from a source. I posted back and forth with him for awhile.
I can't recall the title of the thread or his name.
Cue the cartoon trombone ...
WAAANH, WAAANH, WAAAAAANH!
Although to give CNN credit, they are still too classy (so far) to hire the likes of Geraldo. Wait, they hired the female equivalent, Nancy Grace. Never mind.
Gallup still does polls? Son of a gun...
Polls are based on public opinion in which most of the public gets their biased "news" in 30 minute increments from biased sources....What has changed?
Memo to: Wolf Blitzer, Jack McAfferty, Christina Amanpour, Soledad O'Brien, and the rest of the Bush-hating propaganadists.
Message: Keep up the good work!
Every once in a while, I just have to gloat.
When I think of all the times CNN abused their position and used it to throw out that bleeping propaganda, knowing that people had NO alternative (until the internet and Fox News), I just have to gloat.
CNN, you deserve every failure, every loss, every comeuppance you get. You abused your position, and you abused your viewers. And you're still doing it.
CNN'll hire Zogby.
This looks like an economic decision, based on the fact that CNN's loss of viewers was dragging them down and spoiling their business. I don't see it as a political decision. If they want the other networks to pick them up and interview "Frank," then they will still have to slant left or be ignored.
ping for CNN toilet paper!!!
When bad things happen to bad people...
MSM death spiral alert
And .. still CNN insists on printing lies. They just don't get it.
Why what's he trying to say,that viewers see cnn as biased,why I'm shocked,shocked I tell ya!
what about the fact that by lending its name to CNN polls it was tainting itself with the same stink. Gallup was once the gold standard of polling now look at it another partisan hack for the democrats.
Rats off a sinking ship BTTT.
How these guys manage to stay afloat with only 200K viewers is amazing to me.
How much soap can they sell at that rate?
Your list of failed or failing left wing media is downright inspirational! President Nixon coined the term "the silent majority" in the late 1960s. The fall and decline of leftist media sources demonstrates the power of the silent majority. CNN, NYT, WaPo, LAT, MSNBC, ABCNews, CBSNews, NBCNews and the other media on your wonderfully documented list are all on the chopping block--thanks to the not always silent majority.
And its all Bush's fault. (sarc)
CNN still does news? Son of a gun...
What a great post!
You guys are always so nice about pinging me, thought I'd return the favor!
Thanks for the ping...
Looks like Gallup is smart to jump ship from CNN. The real reason is not the ratings of CNN, it is the fact that Gallup is trying to regain their 'neutral' stance after their mistakes in the 2000 and 2004 Presidential elections. The USA-Today print connection is still valid since it will be the last newspaper to go under. However by that time I expect that Gallup will have cemented relationships with the leading i-media firms/sites of the future since what they wish to sell is 'neutral' polling and polling commentary that is percieved as so by the final news consumers.
Looks like they need to retake the election accuracy position they lost to CBS News polls (ironic, huh?) after having taken the 'crown' from Harris many years ago. For all the distain that CBS News deserves, the CBS polling unit usually gets it right the last four or five weeks before an election (the only time it counts), otherwise they too fall into the trap of 'All Adults' pollitorials as do most of the legacy media outlets.
They will find another bias based outlet. So what. They will not come to FOX.

Great compilation, Milhous!
'Gallup To Sever Ties With CNN, No Viewers'.Will this be Bill Schneider's 'Play of the week'?
You know, when I show that picture to people, they just do not believe it's real.
Web 2.0 Is Reminiscent Of Marx
Without an elite mainstream media, we will lose our memory for things learnt, read, experienced, or heard. The cultural consequences of this are dire, requiring the authoritative voice of at least an Allan Bloom, if not an Oswald Spengler. But here in Silicon Valley, on the brink of the Web 2.0 epoch, there no longer are any Blooms or Spenglers. All we have is the great seduction of citizen media, democratized content and authentic online communities. And weblogs, course. Millions and millions of blogs.
How's Fox' ratings doin???
Pray for W and Our Freedom Fighters
I scanned your posting history for "cnn" and found this in about 30 seconds.
**"CNN has far fewer viewers than it did in the past, and we feel that our brand was getting lost and diluted," GALLUP claimed in an internal memo, obtained by the DRUDGE REPORT.**
Well, duh! Who would watch them anyway?
I scanned my posting history for about 5 minutes and decided I a whole lot and gave up my search!
