Chris Wallace is finished after this latest report

Published

on

CNN has completely tarnished its reputation.

Former boss Jeff Zucker leaned in hard on being the anti-Trump network and convinced former Fox News anchor Chris Wallace to come onboard.

But Chris Wallace is finished after this latest report.

Former Fox News host Chris Wallace seemingly thought he was leaving for greener pastures when he joined CNN+.

However, after the ouster of former president Jeff Zucker, CNN’s streaming service was quickly scrapped.

Wallace was left without a show, and he ranted and raved for a slot on CNN’s cable lineup.

He got his wish, but now the entire network is in peril.

The most recent ratings show that CNN has hit a ten-year low.

During the week of March 6th, CNN averaged a paltry 442,000 primetime viewers and 408,000 total day viewers – a 61% drop from last year in primetime viewers and a 54% drop in total day viewers.

In the key advertising 25-54 age demographic, CNN cratered to a ten-year low.

CNN had its lowest weekday total day audience since 2014 with only 81,000 average viewers in the key demographic.

The primetime numbers were just as bad; CNN only pulled in 95,000 viewers, its worst number since May 2014.

CNN’s attempts to boost ratings have largely failed.

Recently, Jake Tapper’s town hall with Virginia Governor Glenn Youngkin only drew 364,000 viewers.

Primetime host Don Lemon’s move to mornings with co-hosts Poppy Harlow and Kaitlan Collins has been a disaster.

Not only are the ratings abysmal, but in the show’s short run, it has already had to weather two embarrassing scandals involving Lemon.

Reports claim that Lemon yelled at Collins to the point where she was reduced to tears, which prompted the network to keep them two off set temporarily.

Recently, Lemon was pulled off the air for a few days when he claimed that women over 40 years old were “past their prime.”

When Harlow and Collins called him out on his braindead comment, he fumbled.

The so-called mainstream media have spent a considerable amount of time attacking Fox News and Tucker Carlson regarding the Dominion Voting Systems lawsuit that has yet to be adjudicated, but Fox continues to crush it in the ratings.

Fox drew 2.24 million primetime viewers and 274,000 in the key 25-54 demographic.

In second place, MSNBC pulled in 1.088 million primetime viewers with 108,000 in the key demographic.

In a distant third, CNN had 442,000 and 95,000, respectively.

CNN is quickly sinking without a trace.

CNN got caught red-handed in the middle of a shameless propaganda tactic

Published

The horrific war in Ukraine wages on.

And the corporate-controlled press continues to lie about what’s happening.

And now CNN has been caught red-handed in the middle of a shameless propaganda tactic.

Russian President Vladimir Putin’s illegal invasion of Ukraine has led to hundreds of thousands of deaths, hundreds of billions spent, and massive worldwide disruption.

But Joe Biden and the foreign policy establishment have recklessly prolonged the war instead of looking for an off-ramp.

There was one report that Putin and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy had reached a peace agreement, but former UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson, on behalf of NATO, pressured Zelenskyy to nix the deal.

The Military Industrial Complex wants another endless war, not a quick end, even though the strategic goal of crippling Russia’s army has already been established.

And the corporate-controlled press is doing its part to prolong the fight with shameless war propaganda.

Instead of reporting on the reality that Ukraine is severely outmanned and is almost entirely reliant on Western funding and soft NATO support, the so-called mainstream media are presenting the fake narrative that the Russians are on the brink of losing outright.

The latest example came from CNN, which had an entire arc on the significance of the Ukrainian city of Bakhmut.

On October 20, 2022, CNN reported that the “significance of the city cannot be overstressed.”

But on March 2, 2023, CNN reported that “Bakhmut’s strategic importance should not be overstated.”

Then on March 26, 2023, CNN reiterated that Bakhmut offered “limited strategic value.”

Finally, on May 20th, 2023, after the Russians had taken the city, CNN reported that Bakhmut’s “symbolism always outweighed its strategic importance.”

This type of absurd war propaganda is not helping Ukrainians, which are dying by the tens of thousands when a peace agreement could be reached.

The neocons would love regime change in Moscow, but they would settle for a protracted conflict that drags on for years.

And the so-called mainstream media are happy to oblige with helping along either.

The one time Biden got clocked really hard by the press was when he pulled out of Afghanistan.

Biden botched the withdrawal, but the fact that he agreed to pull out at all had the media up in arms.

Presidents are not allowed to end wars.

If Biden runs on an endless war in 2024, he will lose.

The American people have lost their appetite.

CNN is in a world of hurt after airing Trump town hall

Published

By

CNN positioned itself as the Orange Man Bad network.

Then the cable news outlet invited Donald Trump onto the air.

Now CNN is in a world of hurt after airing Trump’s town hall.

Donald Trump gave CNN its best ratings in a long time when he appeared on the network for a town hall hosted by Kaitlan Collins.

CNN easily won the night with 3 million viewers, a rare victory for the network in the primetime slot.

However, the network is experiencing fallout since Trump’s appearance on the network.

CNN has long been mired in third place in the cable news ratings behind Fox News and MSNBC, and they’re trending in the wrong direction.

The week prior to Trump, CNN averaged 494,000 primetime viewers; after Trump, viewership fell to 400,000.

That represents a 23.5% drop in ratings, a huge blow for a network that is already a distant third place.

The likely reason for the sharp drop-off is that CNN conditioned its viewers to hate Trump and disdain anyone who gives him a platform, so it’s no surprise CNN’s well-trained viewers did what they were told.

It also can’t have helped that CNN personalities trashed the network from inside the house.

After the town hall, Anderson Cooper said on his show,  “Many of you have expressed deep anger and disappointment. Many of you are upset that someone who attempted to destroy our democracy was invited to sit on a stage in front of a crowd of Republican voters to answer questions, and predictably, continued to spew lie after lie after lie…I get it. It was disturbing. It was disturbing to see and hear that person refer to a black law enforcement officer as a thug, an adjective he used many times to describe black men and called Kaitlan Collins, the moderator nasty, which is what he calls any woman who stands up to him…You have every right to be outraged today and angry and never watch this network again.”

Oliver Darcy had such an emotional response to Trump’s town hall that he was reportedly called into president Chris Licht’s office and read the riot act.

As for Collins, she was announced as the permanent replacement for Chris Cuomo in primetime despite her lackluster performance as town hall moderator.

CNN likely knows they’ll get those anti-Trump viewers back the closer he gets to winning the GOP primaries, as the Left grows more rabid heading into 2024.

Jake Tapper lost his mind when Elon Musk said one thing about George Soros

Published

The so-called mainstream media defend George Soros to no end.

Criticizing him creates instant backlash.

And Jake Tapper lost his mind when Elon Musk said one thing about George Soros.

Billionaire globalist George Soros has become off-limits.

Simply mentioning his name elicits accusations of antisemitism, which is absurd.

The Left routinely attacked Republican billionaire donor Sheldon Adelson when he was alive.

Soros gets criticized because of his stated ambitions, which include undermining national sovereignty.

Twitter owner Elon Musk recently called out Soros by comparing him to Marvel comics supervillain Magneto.

Musk tweeted, “Soros reminds me of Magneto.”

The make-believe character Magneto and Soros were both Holocaust survivors.

CNN’s Jake Tapper was apparently triggered by Musk’s tweet.

Tapper said on his show that Musk “launched a baseless twitter attack against George Soros, the progressive Jewish philanthropist, who has been the target of antisemitic conspiracy theories.” 

This is absurd because Soros gets attacked for things that he actually says and does.

For instance, Soros bankrolls far-left District Attorneys that downgrade felonies, ignore misdemeanors, and release repeat criminals from prison early.

The pro-crime policies have unsurprisingly led to upticks in crime.

Even Fox News is wary of criticizing Soros.

Former Republican House Speaker Newt Gingrich was chastised on the air for mentioning Soros’ funding of socialist DAs.

Later in the CNN segment, Tapper said, “It’s interesting, in terms of how Elon Musk has chosen to run the platform. He’s constantly engaging with people who are bad faith actors, I mean, people who subscribe to QAnon, people who are white supremacists, people who are focused on black-and-white violence, I mean he’s, people who criticize diversity in Hollywood casting, I mean these are choices he’s making.”

That is what passes for “objective” journalism at CNN, and Tapper is considered one of the network’s less incendiary hosts.

It shouldn’t come as a surprise that the media protects Soros because he’s funding a lot of it.

According to an investigation from the Media Research Center, at least 54 prominent media figures are tied to Soros-funded organizations.

For example, leftist journalist Christiane Amanpour is a senior adviser for the Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ), which received $2.75 million from Soros between 2018 and 2020 alone.

Soros scratches the media’s back, and they scratch his.
