Somehow, I’m not surprised….
Old people leave Faux News on 24/7 to keep them company and reinforce their prejudices, while CNN becomes more ridiculous everyday…
CNN isn’t about news anymore, it’s about entertainment and sensationalism- just like there rest of the Corporate Media.
They blew their reputation for being a “serious” news network a long time ago…
But I miss the old CNN. Just the facts and good solid, objective reporting. But there doesn’t seem to be a place for that anymore in an America that no longer recognizes the existence of “facts”…
Not with the Corporate ownership of the Media….
They really shouldn’t call it the “Cable News Network” anymore…
It’s the “Corrupted Nonsense Network” now…..
Form the Huffington Post:
CNN had its worst ratings in twenty-one years, according to quarterly figures released on Tuesday.
CNN drew an average of just 319,000 total viewers and 129,000 viewers ages 25-54 in the second quarter. Ratings fell 35% among total viewers and 41% in the key demo compared to the same time last year. Primetime ratings also suffered big losses — 35% and 45% in those audiences respectively.
The news was inevitable, after months of terrible ratings at the network. CNN had its lowest-rated month in over a decade in April. May was its worst month in primetime in over twenty years.
As usual, Fox News dominated the ratings in the second quarter, taking 13 of the top thirty programs. MSNBC and Fox News also saw drops, though smaller than CNN’s, from last year. The second quarter of 2012 saw less news than in 2011, when Osama bin Laden died and as Arab Spring protests continued.
