CNN Bombs in First Quarter, Fails to Crack Top 20 in Ratings

April 4th, 2020 11:05 AM
When the Cable News Network debuted in 1980, it soon earned a reputation as the top source for quick and accurate information 24 hours a day, all week long. That was 40 years ago, and the liberal channel has since fallen so far in the ratings that it was unable to generate even one program in the top 20 list during the first three months of 2020, which has been labeled “a dismal first…

CNN's Primetime Ratings Drop to Three-Year Low Despite Impeachment

December 10th, 2019 7:53 AM
CNN continues to lose viewers, especially during its slate of primetime programs. In fact, the network’s ratings fell to a three-year low during the week of November 25 to December 1. During that period, CNN only drew an average of 643,000 people from 9 to 11 p.m., while the Fox News Channel had an audience of 2.2 million and MSNBC attracted 1.3 million. Conservatives were quick to blame…

CNN Has Double-Digit Monthly Ratings Loss in Primetime … Again

June 5th, 2019 9:20 AM
If it weren’t for bad luck, CNN would have no luck at all -- especially when it comes to ratings during the network’s vitally important primetime schedule. In May, the channel lost 16 percent of its weekday evening audience from the previous month, falling to just 761,000 viewers and winding up dead last among such cable networks as liberal rival MSNBC and the dominant Fox News…

October 12th, 2017 10:06 PM
Just when it seemed that the scandal surrounding Harvey Weinstein couldn't get more sordid, current and former aides and advisors of Hillary Clinton have rushed to her defense after Anthony Bourdain, a famous chef and host of his own program on the Cable News Network, defended girlfriend Asia Argento, one of several women accusing the Hollywood mogul of sexual harassment, assault and even…

DC Media Covered Up Sally Quinn's Occultism, Hex-Casting For Decades

September 19th, 2017 1:23 AM
The reception given to Sally Quinn's new book, Finding Magic, has been strangely quiet. Perhaps that's because the book shamelessly reveals that since 1973, if not earlier, Quinn, who was the nation's capital's de facto social gatekeeper for several decades, deceived the world about the true nature of her "religious" outlook, and did so with the help of the rest of the…

Airport Denizens, Beware: Lena Dunham Promises 'I Hear and See All'

September 11th, 2017 11:58 PM
Among the unhinged, actress Lena Dunham is vying for front-row occupancy. The former creator and star of HBO's Girls series has tried to make a name for herself among leftists in a variety of ways during the past several years. Dunham's most recent attempt last week involved telling the world that people around her at airports and airline flights (and surely elsewhere) will…

July 23rd, 2017 6:30 PM
Chris Cillizza, an advocacy journalist and politics editor for CNN, is having a very difficult week. Not only did Cillizza struggle to respond to questions asked during an online Reddit AMA [Ask Me Anything] session on Tuesday, July 18, but on the following day, he jumped into a thunderstorm of “Fake News” when he claimed that no media outlet reported anything about a "secret…

Two Sponsors Pull Out of Trump-Assassinating Play

June 11th, 2017 11:34 PM
Two large corporations have withdrawn as sponsors of "Free Shakespeare in the Park" in New York City because of the theater group's presentation of a modernized version of Julius Caesar where a man who is clearly a stand-in for Donald Trump gets assassinated. Given the play's offensive content, a very pertinent question to ask would be: "When will Time Warner, the…

Newsmax's Ruddy to CNN's Lemon: 'Are You Drinking Kool-Aid Tonight?'

April 8th, 2017 1:26 AM
As evidence that Donald Trump's presidential campaign, and then his transition team, were under surveillance by the Obama administration for political reasons continues to mount, the stubborn refusal by CNN's Don Lemon to acknowledge this reality is turning into a national joke. Thursday evening, Newsmax's Christopher Ruddy got so exasperated at Lemon's deep state of denial,…

NY Times Reporter Needs Help ID'ing 'Non-US-Born' Domestic Terror Acts

January 29th, 2017 8:46 PM
It tends to be good advice to avoid automatically assigning negative or malicious intent, such as a desire to play "gotcha," when someone's actions, inaction, or statements might have simply arisen from breathtaking ignorance. But what if it appears to a combination of both traits? That seems to be the case with New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman's Saturday morning tweet.…

Lena Dunham Breaks Her Silence; AP Disgracefully Runs Interference

December 10th, 2014 12:31 AM
It's more than fair to wonder why the Associated Press waited until 9:41 p.m. ET Tuesday evening to recognize the existence of Lena Dunham's most recent problems with the truth. The AP's first recognition of the days-old story came roughly two hours after Dunham's first detailed response to convincing allegations that the account in her most recent book of being…

CNN, HLN Dumped by Dish Network, Replaced With MSNBC

October 22nd, 2014 8:32 PM
Just when the Cable News Network had actually gained ground in its ratings by picking up 555,000 viewers -- a rise of two percent -- in the third quarter of 2014, CNN has become one of the seven victims of a contract dispute between its parent company, Atlanta-based Turner Broadcasting, and the Dish Network, which has 14 million subscribers. Another news-related casualty of the dispute is HLN…

'Right-Leaning' Joe Scarborough, Tim Russert's Son Added As 'Meet the

September 4th, 2014 9:19 PM
In an effort to reverse the perpetual and disastrous ratings slide Meet the Press experienced during David Gregory's tenure as anchor of the Sunday morning program, NBC is going all out and bringing in Joe Scarborough, the co-host of MSNBC's Morning Joe program, to provide a “right-leaning voice” during panel discussions, and the son of the late -- and still beloved --…

Fury of ISIS Victim's Family With White House Buried Deep in NY Times

September 3rd, 2014 10:17 PM
The family of Steven Sotloff, the second American journalist beheaded in the past two weeks by members of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria -- or ISIS -- is reportedly “outraged” at President Barack Obama and his staff for making “deliberate leaks,” which the relatives interpret as “an attempt to absolve the administration of inaction.” While this might…
