First of all, WOW!! I was way off.

Second, I LOVE that you casually mention that your sons watch it :)

A liberal would have typed 10 pages of indignation about the puppet show and how it will warp their children.

Unlike drag queen lectures and lessons on how to be a transgender (which doesn’t exist)

I enjoyed your post :)

How the mighty have fallen...CNN was once an example to be followed.

Irreconcilable with the network that brought us coverage of the 90s Gulf War. Unfortunately, enough unsuspecting folk still give it the same credence.

CNN ain't the Lynn Russell network anymore. CNN became a cancer with the arrival of the Clintons on the stage of national politics. Stage 4 cancer with Obama, and hospice care under Trump.

Its time to pull the plug and never donate their organs. Bury the patient and salt the spot.

Nobody wants to listen to a lunatic raving on and on about their irrational obsession. CNN has lost its collective mind and now it’s losing its audience.

CNN ratings have been going down for the past 3 years - they don’t care. CNN is still making money from cable fees and advertisements. They will take the 600,000 people watching in hotel lobbies and nursing homes as long as they are making money.

"We have Fox News which is pro-Republican."

Not true. I've quit watching them too.

It’s obvious ratings mean nothing to the those who own CNN. Their ratings have been bad for awhile now. They are a tool. CNN is the launch platform for the worst of the BS narratives that the rest MSM uses.

Oh, my wife makes them turn it off but boys being boys, they'll sneak it back on when they think nobody's paying attention. It's a YouTube channel marketed towards young teen and preteen boys. My sons are 8 and 10.

I appreciate that it is raunchy (yet innocent) humor and nothing "woke" about it. No liberal pandering. No SJW virtue-signaling. Kids are tired of being lectured to by liberals and will gravitate to lecture-free entertainment.

The networks are losing a generation of kids to YouTube and soon Youtube's "woke" TOS updates will chase them off to Steam, BitChute, and wherever else they can find the videos they enjoy watching.

Let’s not forget that Saddam Hussein let CNN have a bureau in Baghdad as long as they said nice things about him.

This is the only way for CNN to save themselves. If they don't choose this path going forward, they're doomed.

Crony-Capitalist billionaires fund the networks. They are all the same including FNC.

Get rid of Jeff Zucker first. Nothing else has a chance until he is gone.

The Biggest Loser

From the article:

“Zucker is a case study in the most destructive media executive ever to exist,” said a honcho at another network. “You’d have to tell me who else has taken a once-great network and literally destroyed it.”

Written by Maureen Dowd, of all people...

I doubt this 643K number includes airports, gyms, and other non-sports bar places where there is a bank of TVs

Just last night I was at a gym and spent an hour on the treadmill where one of the TV's had on CNN. They are non-stop Trump bashing to the point it's so predictable and hilarious. They go so far out of their way to trash Trump it makes them look childish. While I may have been smirking, I have no idea how my fellow treadmillers were viewing the same.

I don't think CNN is too worried about their plummeting ratings because they know their propaganda is still landing on fertile ground.

I have not had cable TV since 2006, and I have vowed to never have it again until they come up with a-la-carte packages that let me choose which networks to watch.

There seems to be an assumption here that CNN wants to "turn themselves around".

I think they are what they are because the powers to be and the money behind them, want them to be biased and bleed for the Left.

CNN is who they are because someone wants them to be like that.

Jeff Zuckerberg personally hates Trump and will steer his producers and show hosts and guests to voice that prejudice opinion loud and clear.

If someone wanted to really change CNN, Zuckerberg would have been gone a long time ago.

CNN could not survive in a free market among its competitors.

Which reinforces my belief that someone is deliberating feeding CNN's market losses in order to keep a vocal hate-Trump narrative going.

I’m waiting to see how many viewers CNN can lose before they go out of business. Or are they “too big to fail,” as the government has described certain corporations?

We have an exchange student from Austria. The other day he pointed to the violence in Mexico due to the “military weapons” from the US. We are not supposed to “engage” in debates with them but I could not hold back so I asked what military weapons. Response M16s. I asked how he knew that. He said from the news. I asked if “the news” pointed out how many sporting arms went to drug cartels by a stupid program under Obama. Response never heard of such a program. I then asked if he knew that the sale of M16s was illegal in US along with all automatic weapons. Response no. I suggested he reevaluate his news sources. The mediass is killing the US both in the US and abroad. A true fifth column in my view.
