CNN is in full freak-out mode after getting news they never thought they would hear



CNN is in their biggest battle yet.

They continue to lose viewers at a rate that isn’t sustainable.

And now they are in full freak-out mode after getting news they never thought they would hear.

You know things are bad for CNN when they are forced to lay off 100 employees at their main office and virtually scrap their satellite office in London.

But things have been getting worse and worse for them since the election of President Trump.

Their ratings have tanked after the release of Robert Mueller’s report into Russia collusion proving Trump did not collude with Russia.

They have been losing massive amounts of viewers with every week that goes by.

And last week they got some perspective on how bad things are after losing 28% of the viewers they had in the same week last year.

Breitbart News reports:

In total day, CNN squeaked into the top at number nine. Fox and MSNBC again took the top two spots.

Total Primetime Viewers
Fox: 2.26 million
MSNBC: 1.5 million
CNNLOL: 744,000

Total Day Total Viewers:
Fox: 1.23 million
MSNBC: 850,000
CNNLOL: 519,000

Things are not going to look much better this week. During Trump’s formal declaration that he would run for a second term on Tuesday, CNN was wiped out in the ratings after the crybaby outlet got its widdle feelings hurt and cut away from the speech after Trump’s capacity crowd of 20,000 started chanting the pro-science phrase “CNN Sucks.”

Throughout the speech, Fox News average a whopping five million viewers to crybaby CNN’s — try not to laugh — 788,000.

There is no indication things will get better for CNN.

As the numbers for this week show, things are almost certainly going to be worse.

After CNN refused to air Trump’s historic 2020 campaign announcement rally, they were dwarfed by Fox News, who brought in 5 million viewers during the speech.

At this rate, there is nowhere for CNN to go but down, and this could truly be the end of their network if things don’t change.

Do you want CNN to go off the air for good?

    At least with CNN on the air there is one channel for all the losers to whine. If they go off the air these losers will try and find work in a number of different venues making it harder to shut them off! They are the ultimate conspiracy theory channel!

      There can be only one answer to the self destruction CNN is engaging in. They have gone completely mental and require serious psychiatric counseling. Indications of their demise are everywhere, a perfect definition of insanity. Doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results, classic definition of insanity. It’s hard to believe that, presumably, intelligent people can be so stupid.

      In my opinion, they should not ever be able to work as a news caster or reporter again.. Telling the lies they told is a horrible thing to do to any human being , especially the President of the united states.. No one in History has been treated and lied about, like President Trump. So sad our country has stooped this level.. “.May God forgive them”

    No I do not want to see them shut down. What I would like to see is CNN and others stop telling us what we should think and report the facts. Let the American people decide what they want to do or how to feel about a story. All news media tends to lean to the left for most and in CNN’s case the extreme left but Fox news leans right to an extent as well. I hate to see any business go down but there has to be some changes made when it comes to the news media. They should be held accountable for what and how they report something. Back it up with facts not personal commentary.

      Don’t hold your breath, Jim! Fox News and their program line-up is “the balance” against all of the other biased, anti-Trump, anti-Republican networks and their cadre of leftist pundits; and that’s why Fox the most-watched cable channel by a wide margin.

      I agree, but I’m afraid that those of the leftist media are so wrapped up in their own feelings of being more aware of what is or should be happening in American politics that their reasoning cannot be demonstrated effectively for them to recognize the truth. They are so absorbed in “self” that they will not admit, nor change their ways. This goes not only for the media, but the leftist of Hollywood and those of the Democrat party in federal and state governments. It’s all about retaining and increasing personal power, regardless of the damage perpetrated upon America and her citizens………….

      I would like to see CNN shut down, and then perhaps the others would wake up.They need to be held accountable, and so far they are not sucking it up to give the facts as journalists should. FOX gives the most accurate news whether they want to see it or not. The biased media just doesn’t want to concede, and therefore must suffer the consequences!! SHUT THEM DOWN!!

Because if we do the lawful, good in public, we are arrested for it. Yet, even murder is now legal. What the hell has happened to America, CNN. Man up and “be good”.

    SCHADENFREUDE: The far-left CNN’s ratings death spiral marched into last week (6/1-6/8, 2019) as the fake news network lost one-third of its primetime audience and a breathtaking 55 percent of its demo viewers. When compared to this same week last year, CNN also lost 21 percent of its total day viewers.

People are sick to death of this and they are sick of CNN bashing our President on a daily basis with lie after lie!! The Economy is booming and they are too arrogant because of their hatred for Trump to even TRY to tell the news as they should!! It’s NOTHING but Propaganda!! And when April Ryan and Jim Acosta are constantly disrespecting our President at the WH press briefings that even makes things worse! They refuse to just ask questions and move on! No they want to argue with him and now that Sarah has left April Ryan is still disrespectful to her!!! You People need to grow up and MOVE ON!! You are The Enemy Of the People and deserve everything you get!!!!!

    As long as I don’t have to watch them, I could care less. But all these waiting rooms that play them need to change the channel. My pain clinic office plays the View, which I detest! I try to not watch it while I’m there, if that show is on. Disgusting!! If CNN’s ratings keep falling, it may get down to where only their top 2 or 3 will be on. But, that’s what you get when you lie all the time, plus have obnoxious people, like Don Lemon, on there. And, no, his being gay has nothing to do with him being obnoxious.Good riddance to bad rubbish!

    There is a false rumor that Trump ruined CNN. Fact check: Jeff Zucker ruined CNN. A fish rots from the head first. Jeff seems to lack genuine discernment. Therefore, the art of reform is beyond his reach. Even if, miraculously, he could start the process he would have to face the reality of a simple lesson from my most un-favorite Philosopher, Friedrich Nietzsche: “The consequences of our actions grab us by the back of the neck, blithely disregarding the fact that we have in the meantime ‘reformed.'”

    If CNN wants to become a high rated news station all they have to do is report NEWS – not commentary. If they want the commentary, fine, but comment on both sides equally. Let the people that view the program, decide which side they want to take. It would be soooooo great to have an unbiased news station.

    The demise of CNN might just qualify as the greatest boon to modern man. Hour upon hour of Fake or definitely slanted news does not qualify them to be a legitimate News organization.

BUT now that Rupert and Roger are the RUPERT SPAWN are turning it into just another left lean news program at least ’til the opinion schedule starts which IS why their rating remain high! OANN One AMERICAN news net. has conservative opinion and they READ NEWS STORIES and do NOT tell you what to think unlike the MAIN SLIME MEDIA tries to do everyday!!!

The New York Times accused Rush Limbaugh of a crime that could get him thrown off the air




There may be no voice on radio more recognizable than Rush Limbaugh.

He has used that voice to promote the America First agenda for decades, paving the way for a candidate like Donald Trump to win the presidency.

And that’s why The New York Times accused Rush Limbaugh of a crime that could get him thrown off the air.

The mainstream media despises everything about President Donald Trump.

So naturally, his most vocal supporters are also in their crosshairs of hatred.

With Rush Limbaugh being the biggest name in radio, and a vocal supporter of Trump, they are going after him harder and harder.

In a recent “report,” The New York Times alleges Rush Limbaugh, along with a slew of other conservative figures, have the same views as the mass murderer in El Paso, TX.

They claim it is people like Limbaugh who encouraged the shooter, which is completely insane to any normal American.

NewsBusters reports:

The liberal media will shamelessly blame its more conservative competitors for tragedies, given an opening, and the front-page of Monday’s New York Times climbed on board with a long investigative report under its new “The New Nativists” rubric: “How the El Paso Gunman Echoed The Words of Right-Wing Pundits.”

An online subhead claimed: “Language like ‘invasion’ and the ‘replacement’ of Americans has increasingly become a regular part of Fox News broadcasts, Rush Limbaugh shows and other prominent conservative media.” The Times dived deep into word-counting, courtesy of reporters Jeremy Peters, Michael Grynbaum, Keith Collins, and Rich Harris.

The story included graphic blocks of transcript excerpts from conservative personalities like Tucker Carlson, Ann Coulter, and Rush Limbaugh, plus other Fox News hosts and guests, with the reporters taking every opportunity to link the figures to white supremacist massacres.

The mainstream media can’t challenge people like Rush Limbaugh on the merits of their arguments.

So they are instead trying to get them thrown off the air so they can’t talk at all.

Trying to tie Limbaugh to somebody as depraved as the El Paso gunman is one way they are trying to get that done.

Do you think The New York Times should leave Rush Limbaugh alone?

Donald Trump just declared all-out war on Fox News with one harsh statement




Heading into the 2016 election, Fox News was the only major news outlet to fairly cover Trump.

But in recent months, they have been slipping away from that by pushing the same fake news you’d expect from CNN.

And President Trump just declared all-out war on Fox News with one harsh statement.

With the notable exception of anchors like Tucker Carlson and Sean Hannity, Fox News is far from friendly to conservatives.

They even employ far-Left Clinton allies like Donna Brazile.

So needless to say, President Trump hasn’t been happy with them.

In recent months he has increasingly focused his anger towards Fox News, instead of outlets like CNN, which he has been railing against for years.

And in a recent tweet, he took things even further, criticizing Fox News anchor Shepard Smith, stating that “Fake News CNN is better” than his coverage.

Trump also notes that he prefers One America News Network to Fox News.

One America News is an up-and-coming network that became popular for being a response to the increasingly unfair coverage against President Trump.

Many of Trump’s biggest supporters have been tuning into OANN instead of Fox News, which is bad news for the network.

Trump found strong success in his anti-CNN attacks.

If he continues to target Fox News with the ferocity he currently is, they will very likely take a hit in the ratings.

Do you still watch Fox News?

Sarah Palin just scored this major victory that could put The New York Times out of business




For decades, The New York Times has lied about conservatives and smeared them as racists, Nazis, and enablers of domestic terrorism.

That could all come to a complete stop.

And that’s because Sarah Palin just scored this major victory that could put The New York Times out of business.

The Second Circuit Court of Appeals recently reversed a lower court’s order and reinstated former Governor Sarah Palin’s lawsuit against The New York Times for defamation of character.

Breitbart reports:

Former vice presidential nominee Gov. Sarah Palin’s (R-AK) lawsuit against the New York Times for defamation can proceed, a federal appeals court ruled on Tuesday.

“This case is ultimately about the First Amendment, but the subject matter implicated in this appeal is far less dramatic: rules of procedure and pleading standards,” began the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit.

Judge Jed Rakoff of the Southern District of New York, appointed by Bill Clinton, had dismissed Palin’s complaint for failing to state a plausible claim. A three-judge panel of the Second Circuit disagreed, reinstating the lawsuit.

In 2017, after a deranged Bernie Sanders supporter attempted to assassinate over 20 Republican members of Congress, The New York Times ran an editorial trying to link a lunatic’s assassination attempt of Democrat Congresswoman Gabby Giffords in 2011 to the event by saying political violence is a problem for both parties.

The Times’ editorial contained a blatantly false line saying there was a clear link to that Giffords assailant and a map posted before the 2010 midterm elections by Palin’s political action committee with target signs above Democrat districts.

No such link existed, and it was proven during the investigation at that time that Giffords’ attacker hated her long before that map was ever posted.

Palin will now get her day in court, and she could win substantial damages from The Times.
