CNN sees ratings swoon in April

CNN's prime-time ratings dropped a whopping 26 percent in April compared to last year, according to Nielsen Media Research.

 

MSNBC's ratings were down 14 percent in April 2019 compared to April 2018, while Fox News's ratings overall were flat.

 

The sharp decrease for CNN marked its lowest-rated month in total viewers since October 2015.

 

In the 25- to 54-year-old demographic that advertisers covet most, it was the network's least-watched month since Aug. 2015. 

 

In prime time, Fox News finished first with an average of 2.4 million viewers. In April 2018, the network also averaged 2.4 million viewers, according to Nielsen.

 

MSNBC was second with an average of 1.66 million viewers, down from 1.93 million in April 2018.

CNN was third with 767,000 average primetime viewers, down from 1.04 million in April 2018.

In the 25–54 demographic, all three networks saw a decline.

 

Fox News delivered 389,000 viewers, followed by MSNBC's 255,000 and CNN's 198,000 viewers in the category. 

 

This compared to 483,000 for Fox, 398,000 for MSNBC and 336,000 for CNN in April 2018.
 
The top five shows in cable news were Fox's "Hannity" with an average of 3.086 million viewers, followed by "Tucker Carlson Tonight" with an average of 2.834 million. MSNBC's "Rachel Maddow Show" was third with 2.630 million viewers, followed by Fox's "The Ingraham Angle with 2.455 million viewers and "The Five" with 2.4 million in rounding out the Top-5. 

CNN's highest-rated show was "Chris Cuomo Primetime," which averaged 917,000 viewers in finishing 26th overall in total viewers among the cable news networks.

All this proves is that those on the FAR RIGHT, those that believe in NAZI PHILOSOPHY, those that are WHITE NATIONALIST, those that are XENOPHOBIC NUT JOBS, those that are ANTI-SEMITIC, and those that are RACIST stay home and watch TV a lot and FAUX NEWS is their network of choice.

 

As you will notice, their viewership did not change at all, thus proving they have that BASE described above and that base is their sole viewership.

 

Who else stays home as much as he can and watches FAUX NEWS?

 

Could it be the COMMANDER IN CHEAT?

NO! IT'S CONSERVATIVES THAT ARE NUTTIER THAN SQUIRREL POOP!

If indeed, it is anti-semitic, it will have loyal listeners with Ilhan Ohmar and her Democratic backers.

 Could be why so many here are so far off base on “national” news. I often wondered how they could be so misguided when it comes to important issues that are on a “national“ level. 

 Watching the “local“ news will keep one up to date on community parades, movie showings, local school sports, cooking tips, recipes, etc.. Fox viewers on the other hand are getting what’s happening on the national and international level.  They can then determine what is real and what is fake. They are also intelligent enough to know that just because a news item doesn’t  fit into their comfort zone, it is not automatically fake news.

Are you referring to 'generalizations' like you just did in assuming the "Trump followers only watch FOX"?  I mean think about what you said.

 

No, "YOU seem to think that everyone is the same" and as usual assume that everyone watches FOX.  One thing that many intelligent Conservatives do is research...no matter who they watch (FOX being the most reliable and #1 for a reason).  Anyone who just trusts what they see on TV (or social media) without looking into it further would probably be a Alt Left Liberal.  And Fact Checkers don't help either ~ who's checking the fact checkers.

And the dimms heads continue to explode as a result to losing the 2016 election...  Have they learned nothing?

 

The American voters have learned that CNN and MSNBC are nothing more that an extension of the DNC, they are NOT real news organizations!  

 

Americans are not buying stupid today and the DNC owned media no longer control the false narrative they have pushed since Trump won the election fair and square.  

 

You folks need to get a hold of yourselves and move on...

So the Mueller report comes out, and viewership dropped. Maybe people learned what they wanted to know, then moved on. Poll after poll shows most Americans feel the Mueller report DOES NOT exonerate Trump. So, there's that.

 

Viewership wasn't the only thing that dropped after the Mueller report release - Trump's approval rating dropped 5 points after the Mueller report release, too. That says a lot.

 

The only thing Fox's numbers show is that the alt-right needs to be spoon-fed their daily hate-filled instructions and talking points.

Supposedly, the investigation was to determine if Trump was involved with Russia to influence the election. If Mueller did not find proof of this, by default, he is exonerated. You are either guilty or NOT guilty. There is no limbo!

If you were up to date on the Mueller report, you would know that the "unredacted" version" was not made available to the public or the whole of Congress ..... And your Republicans want to keep it that way!

You would also know that Mueller "identified instances with evidence" for Congress to act on ..... as I stated in my replies.

 

The 10 (ten) evidenced instances of obstruction of justice deal with the following:

 

1. Conduct involving FBI Director Comey and Michael Flynn

2. The President's reaction to the continuing Russia investigation

3. The President's termination of Comey

4. The appointment of a Special Counsel and efforts to remove him

5. Efforts to curtail the Special Counsel's investigation

6. Efforts to prevent public disclosure of evidence

7. Further efforts to have the Attorney General take control of the investigation

8. Efforts to have McGahn deny that the President had ordered him to have the Special Counsel removed

9. Conduct toward Flynn and Manafort (redacted)

10. Conduct involving Michael Cohen

 

...... Hardley an exoneration NOTHAPPENING!!!

The Mueller report also details how members of the Trump campaign either destroyed evidence, or purposely used apps that would dump communications records. For as much as the alt-right wants to malign Clinton about lost communications, Trump's cabal is subject to the same scrutinization, and the Mueller report supports that fact.

As an attorney, I can see why Mueller said this and I would agree. The report does not exonerate Trump nor does it find him guilty of ANYTHING! The implication is if the investigation went on for another 6 years, it "might". Well, most people understand if you are presently NOT GUILTY, that means you are NOT GUILTY! When the left or anyone else gets proof, then bring the PROOF!

Actually, Mueller did identify and provide evidence for 10 (ten) instances of obstruction of justice.

And of course we also have Trump's treasonous actions favoring Russia over his own country and his continued violation of the emoluments clause of our Constitution .... ALL impeachable offenses!

 

BTW .... hopefully we will get to see the unredacted Mueller Report ..... and all the stuff your Republicans want to hide ...... and also see Trump's tax returns showing that he pays little to no taxes and confirming the suspicion that the Russian oligarchs and Saudis are funding Trump's house of cards empire!

 

....... An abundance of impeachable offenses awaits exposure!!!
