Impeachment Is Destroying CNN
PJ Media ^ | December 6, 2019 | Michael van der Galien

If Democrats and their media allies thought that the impeachment of President Trump would be his undoing, I've got bad news for them: it's actually undoing them. The Democrats' favorite (fake) news channel CNN is suffering from a three-year low in ratings.

According to Disrn, CNN "reached a three-year low in ratings over the Thanksgiving holidays, averaging 643,000 primetime viewers. The news outlet also saw its worst week for viewers among the 25-43 demographic." In that group, CNN only pulled 138,000 viewers. That's pathetic.

Fox News, on the other hand, "posted higher ratings than CNN and MSNBC combined, averaging nearly 2.2 million viewers during primetime last week. The network also pulled in 303,000 viewers ages 25 to 54," which is the most important target group for advertisers.

In other words, Fox News is utterly and completely destroying the competition. Now, there's nothing new about that in itself, but what is new is CNN's complete and utter irrelevance in the news world. If you're thinking to yourself, "CNN? I never watch it!", you're not only talking for yourself but for just about every single American. There's literally just about nobody watching any of its programs -- let alone those scheduled outside of primetime.

How deep the once mighty have fallen. It's unbelievable. CNN was once an example to be followed. And now? Not one self-respecting real journalist, with ambition, would want to work for them.

There's just one way for CNN to turn this around. They've got to do something that hasn't been tried in decades. We have Fox News which is pro-Republican. We have MSNBC which is pro-Democrats. CNN's attempt to imitate MSNBC is destroying the channel. The way forward is for CNN to actually hire real journalists to -- and this is going to shock a lot of people

Orlando Airport has either a weather channel or ESPN on their TV displays.

Soros or a cabal of money men who want the hate Trump message to be broadcast 24/7.

CNN is not destroyed until it’s off the air, and off the internet. Until then this is nonsense.

CNN doesn’t understand being the Democrat stooge isn’t working for them. They will double down and spew more debauchery in attempt to double down to ensure their demise

There are “youtubers” who get millions of views.
I look over some for technology and am amazed at the numbers.
There are kids who make many millions just unboxing toys.

One thing CNN has going for the public, it is a transparent window into the “4am talking points".

I'd sure like to know WHO is sending out those 4am talking points. Whoever it is, should be publicly hung for all to see.

The real harm done by CNN is in their international stations. Anyone who has spent time overseas can vouch for how anti-American the international CNN station is. 100 times more than the US version. They do more than BBC to bring down our global reputation, and that’s saying a lot.

The over seas CNN job is to trash America, us and President Trump with the Euro Trash elites. They get paid well for that.

Last but not least CNN is a CIA mouthpiece.

They are not going broke.
