Default CNNís ratings downslide continues with massive losses, gets steamrolled by Fox News

I think Fox and MSNBC do better because it caters to what peeps are lookin' for in their news. Viewers who want an unbias take on news, not to mention conservatives, watch Fox. The hardcore lib extremists tune into MSNBC. That doesn't leave CNN with much.

I mean, what do ya expect with partisan peeps on the payroll like Jim Acosta, Wolf Blitzer, Anderson Cooper, Donna Brazile, Chris Cuomo , Brooke Baldwin, Don Lemon, and many other f*cktards who wouldn't know the truth if it splattered all over their face.

Thereís no way around it: CNN had a dismal month of May in the ratings department.

Not only was the mainstream media news outlet crushed in the ratings game by its top competitors ó Fox News and MSNBC ó but, compared to May 2017, CNN is running at a serious deficit.

What are the details?

According to AdWeek, CNN was down 25 percent in primetime viewership compared to May 2017 and 20 percent down in day time viewership compared to the same time period. The networkís losses in the key 25-54 age demographic outpaced its overall losses.

The losses amount to just an average of 835,000 average primetime viewers each night and 655,000 total viewers during the day in May. In the 25-54 demo, CNN averaged 265,000 viewers during primetime hours and 198,000 viewers during dayside hours.


In a press release, CNN touted the numbers: ďCNN HAS SECOND-BEST MAY EVER.Ē

Despite the relative success, CNN remains far behind Fox and MSNBC in overall viewership, during both primetime and dayside hours.

More from Forbes:

In ratings data released Wednesday by Nielsen Media Research, FNC extended its run of consecutive months at number one to a staggering 197, while building hitting another impressive milestone: Fox News Channel has now beaten every other network in basic cable for 23 months straight, based on total day ratings, with an average total day audience in May of 1.4 million viewers.

In prime time, Fox News destroyed its competition, with an average total audience of 2.381 million viewers, compared to MSNBCís 1.384 million and CNNís 835,000. Among viewers 25-54, the group most coveted by advertisers, FNC shook off a challenge in recent months from MSNBC to claim a clear victory: 461,000 viewers, well ahead of MSNBC (329,000) and CNN (265,000)

Aside from the perception that CNN is ďfake newsĒ thanks to President Donald Trump, itís not immediately clear why CNN is facing such a steep ratings slump. However, as TheBlaze reported in May, CNNís ratings were already headed downhill as the network focuses on more anti-Trump stories.

If it wasn't for the fact that CNN is the station that most airport TV's are tuned too, I would imagine that their numbers would be half of what they are.

CNN pays the airports to tune in. That's how poorly they draw an audience.

Of course it's Trump's fault for pointing out their bias and fake news. For example look at their fevered obsession with Stormy Daniel's and her self promoting lawyer. For weeks there was virtually no other story besides the rantings of a porn star claiming to have had an affair with President Trump a decade ago.
