Media implosion update: CNN's audience has dropped 67% since Trump left office!

May 27th

I guess there's a reason CNN was all about Orange Man Bad for 24 hours a day:

That's crazy!

After a heated election, you expect a drop, but this is a large international outlet.

To lose two-thirds of their viewers in five months is unbelievable, especially given how many in the key "middle-aged" demographic have tuned out.

I guess when you alienate half the nation with one-side ideological "reporting" and the rest lose interest in the man you built your shallow brand around, you find yourself in a pickle!

It isn't just CNN, either:

CNN's drop in viewers is larger than its competitors, but all major cable news shows have experienced a drop. MSNBC had the second-largest drop in viewership since January, losing 49% of its total viewership between January and May. In the 25-54 age demographic, the network lost 63% of its viewers. During primetime hours, MSNBC lost 42% of its total viewers and 58% of viewers between the ages of 25 and 54.

Meanwhile, Fox seems to be hanging in there just fine.

Fox News had the least substantial drop out of all networks, losing 12% of its total viewers and 15% of viewers between the ages of 25-54 between January and May.

I'm sure the media is already whipping up some empty-calorie hysteria on climate change and Majorie Taylor Greene, but without Trump, it might be over for the national leaders in fake news!
