CNN mired in a credibility crisis as ratings continue to collapse, experts say



By: Brian Flood
Published 29 mins ago

CNN is suffering a credibility crisis as viewership for the once-proud network continues to crater with a no apparent plan in place to fix things anytime soon, according to media watchdogs and insiders.

CNN’s audience shriveled in the second quarter of 2019, averaging only 541,000 total viewers while being more than doubled by Fox News Channel’s 1.3 million average in the process. But CNN struggled even more during the primetime hours of 8-11 p.m. ET, finishing as the fifteenth most-watched network on basic cable behind networks such as TLC, Investigation Discovery and the Hallmark Channel. CNN averaged a dismal 761,000 primetime viewers while FNC averaged 2.4 million.

The Hill media guru Joe Concha told Fox News that CNN's freefall may not be slowing.

The numbers warrant concern, yes. Q2 was a particularly news-rich quarter highlighted by the release of the Mueller report and all the aftermath and controversy following it, plus the launch of several high-profile Democratic candidacies including Joe Biden and Pete Buttigieg to propel 2020 coverage into high gear,” Concha said. “It may only get worse in Q3 given the numbers we’re already seeing.”

CNN did not immediately respond when asked for comment.

It really depends upon how much Jeff Zucker is willing to spend to continually attack and attempt to end the Presidency of, Donald J. Trump.  As with Carlos Slim and other Billionaires who control much of the Left Wing media, they are far less concerned with short term profits and far more concerned with promoting their propaganda and their Globalist, open border agenda.  Trump threatens the status quo, like no President ever has.  How dare he!

Frankly I don't see this as any great victory by Fox News.

Why?

Well, if one is to believe the rabid right, all the mainstream media is in the pocket of the Democratic Party or the "Left".

So this means that in order to compare Fox News ratings with more center or left news sources, one should also consider MSNBC, ABC, NBC, CBS news program ratings. I would suspect that on that basis, Fox News would come in last.

Furthermore, with the advent of internet-based news sites, cable TV news channels have lost audience solely due to that development. It might be argued that Fox News viewers tend to be less technologically up to date than CNN viewers, so the internet based dissemination of news would have proportionately less effect on Fox News than it might on CNN or MSNBC.

Finally, who cares? I cut my cable TV connection back in 2004, as soon as digital broadcast TV became available. If I want to watch a cable news program, I can just access them over the web as needed (often for no extra charge). I do have cable service, but for internet access only. About 10 years ago I dropped my AT&T internet service because it was overpriced, slow, and unreliable. The Comcast connection is faster and far more reliable, although not much less expensive. What I really dislike about all of them is that every year or two they send me a bill with a large price increase, and I have to call them and threaten to go with somebody else before they put the cost back to where it was before. Even so, every year they come out with an even lower introductory price which invariably I don't qualify for because I'm an existing customer.

Where are all those free cell phones and internet connections the Right keeps on whining about?
