History Channel, Food Network Outrank CNN for Total Prime Time Viewers

Quote:
For the week of April 29, CNN had a rough time garnering prime time viewers as the network fell out of the top ten and behind the History Channel and the Food Network.

The rankings, which were released Wednesday, revealed Fox News Channel had garnered the most prime time viewers last week with a total of 2.5 million, up six percent compared to last year.

I'm not sure why CNN is considered influential by anyone at this point.

‘Two scoops’ network CNN seems to think illegal alien murdering at least 12 women is a local crime story

Quote:
To be perfectly honest, this is the first we’d heard of Billy Chemirmir, and it’s not surprising considering the news coverage he hasn’t gotten. The Daily Wire’s Ryan Saavedra ran a search on CNN’s site for the name of the man who’s allegedly killed 12 elderly women in Dallas and came up blank.
Things CNN has reported:

-Trump gets 2 scoops of ice cream, everyone else gets 1

-The shape of Trump's genitals

-How many Diet Cokes Trump drinks daily

Things CNN won't report:

-An alleged illegal alien serial killer who was charged with murdering 12 elderly women in Dallas pic.twitter.com/teXZUh1oWn

Liberals' media bailout puts foxes in charge of the chickens

Quote:
It is difficult to know where to begin to deplore the process by which the federal government will decide which media organizations to subsidize and which not to. So let’s start with Unifor’s involvement.

“Unifor?” you may ask. “The flamboyantly anti-Conservative labour union?”

Indeed. The mega-union representing 315,000 workers across the country, including a large percentage of anglophone Canadian journalists at legacy media outlets — and also autoworkers, because that totally makes sense — will nominate one of eight people to an “independent panel of experts.” The panel will decide the criteria for divvying up tax breaks adding up to some $600 million in public funding.

CNN’s Ratings Death Spiral Continues as Key Demo Hits 2015 Low

Quote:
Far-left CNN’s viewership death spiral just hit a 2015 low in the advertiser-coveted 25- to 54-age demo.

Compared to this same week last year, the fake news network (that regularly spreads conspiracy theories and encourages political violence against Trump and his supporters) lost an astonishing 43 percent of its prime time demo viewership and an even more humiliating 47 percent of its total day demo viewers.

For comparison sake, Fox News dipped only 22 and 21 percent in those same categories.

According to TV Newser, this is CNN’s worst showing in this demo since November of 2015 — that’s a year prior to the 2016 presidential election.

The news is not much better for the Hate Network in every other area.

In total day viewers last week, CNN plummeted 34 percent; in prime time viewers, CNN dove 26 percent.

Quote:
The most humiliating number for the fake cable channel, though, is that throughout all of last week, CNN came in 16th and averaged only 693,000 total prime time viewers.
And most of those were probably at airports...

Rachel Maddow's Ratings Plunge to Yearly Low

Quote:
Why the long face?
Her show last week averaged 2,324,000 viewers, with an average audience of 337,000 in the 25-54 age demographic, both of which mark yearly lows for the liberal television host, according to Nielsen Media Research.

Maddow first saw a dramatic drop in ratings following the conclusion of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation. Her previous low for a week in 2019 was the last week in March, the first full week after Mueller submitted his conclusion to Attorney General William Barr, where she averaged 2,458,000 viewers with 392,000 in the demo.

CNN Lays Off Almost the Entirety of Its Health Division

CNN previously lied, calling reports that this was coming a "crazy rumor."

Of course it was Jeff Zucker's Puffy Fluffer, Tater, who claimed that.

(from AoS The Morning Rant)

Quote:
"As the inestimable J.J. Sefton reported in today's Morning Report, some blue-checkmark d*ckhole from floundering Time magazine pushed out a quote on Twitter from President Trump that was totally fabricated, i.e. he made up the whole thing himself. He later defended as 'kinda plausible' that Trump would go to Japan and remark within earshot of the press that Kim Jong Un is smarter and would make a better president than Sleepy Joe Biden. I think he wanted to make Trump look bad, but what happened was that a bunch of hair-on-fire blue-checkmarkers ran with it without bothering to verify whether Trump actually said it (after all, the source was one of their fellow blue checkmarks, so how could it be wrong?) and it pretty much blew up in their faces. There was only one media guy who said, hey you know, maybe we'd better check into this first, but something like this is like catnip to the Trump haters in the clown car media and their confirmation bias bit them right in the ass. So, a good weekend. But seriously, don't you think there should be consequences for something like this? I mean, with all the fuss about 'fake news', here's a situation where a blue-checkmark guy used his blue checkmark status to propagate a bit of fake news, and I think he should pay for it, i.e. his blue-checkmark status should be revoked for a time, perhaps permanently. And furthermore, it should be the other blue checkmark scribblers who should be raising the hue and cry about this because the Time d*ckhole's stunt made them all look bad. If the media were serious about the quality of the product they sell, this guy would be fired or reassigned to emptying wastebaskets and sharpening pencils at the Time front office. And everyone who fell for it should all suffer similar consequences. But they're not, so they won't, and so it's just another day in the clown car media where you can always trust anything said by someone with a blue checkmark and #OrangeManBad."

Your Moral And Intellectual Superiors

Quote:
In modern journalism there are three sides to every story: their side, their side reinforced – and “shut up”.
The Columbia Journalism Review allowed a liberal activist to set a new standard for transgender reporting by publishing her view that people who are critical of transgender athletes should be excluded from reporting on the subject. The activist and CJR, both posing as authorities on journalism ethics, declined to comment on the standard they are pushing. […]


The Daily Caller asked CJR about its decision to publish a piece by Media Matters for America editor-at-large Parker Molloy, in which she explicitly pushes for fewer perspectives and fewer voices in reporting on whether it’s fair for biological men who identify as women to compete in women’s sports. MMfA is a self-described liberal activist non-profit.

Molloy criticizes journalists for including quotes from people who disagree with the policy in their coverage of the controversy — a standard journalism practice — even in pieces that consist almost entirely of the perspective of the transgender athletes who want to compete, and which are obviously framed in their favor. People who don’t have “all the facts,” i.e. the right facts according to transgender activists, shouldn’t be quoted in stories, Molloy says.

Many transgender athletes have garnered glowing profiles of their successes and sympathetic reports on their struggle to convince critics that it’s fair for them to compete with women as biological men. They rarely, if ever, include the voices of the women and girls who lose out to these athletes in competition, and often give only a passing mention to their critics.

lolgf: Laid-Off Reporters Launch a New Side-Hustle to "Save Journalism"

Quote:
Here's another way to "save journalism:" sign up to be an Uber driver and tell people the news when you drive them to Arby's.
Two reporters fired amid widespread industry-wide layoffs this year are launching a nonprofit organization to protect other journalists from a similar fate as big tech companies continue to threaten the industry's viability.
Psst: "Non-profits" mean they there is no profit that flows to stakeholders.

But founders and officers of the company still draw salaries!

So let's not pretend that this is something other than what it is: A side-hustle for "journalists" who can't get work at even the shittiest, trashiest websites.

Big League Politics: CNN Has Fired Most of Its London Correspondents, Then Invited Them to Reapply for Their Jobs

Quote:
"Crazy rumor" which is completely untrue, said Jeff Zucker's Puffy Fluffer Brian "Tater" Stelter.
Earlier today, television and cable website Adweek reported that CNN International was expected to cut back the programming it produces and airs in London and replace at least 90 minutes of content per day with American content, and new details have surfaced indicating darker tidings for the once-respected outlet, as CNN will now lay off all its London based correspondents and allow them the opportunity to reapply to maintain some level of employment.
Say, remember when Ted Koppel told Tater that CNN needed Donald Trump (and, it should have been mentioned, the Russia Hoax), or else its ratings would crumble?

And remember when Jeff Zucker's Puffy Fluffer said that no one at CNN cared about ratings?

Well. Chalk another one up on Tater's Blackboard of Huge Victories.

Meanwhile, CNN is now paying freelancers only once every three months. I assume this is also a cost-cutting move.
