CNN has become a 24 hour anti-Trump news network and they are paying for it in ratings. It would be one thing if CNN wanted to sometimes be critical or argue about policy, but instead, it’s just anti-Trump hysteria all the time.
FOX News and Sean Hannity on the other hand, are soaring.
Breitbart has the story:
February Ratings: Fox News and Sean Hannity on Top — CNN and Chris Cuomo in Freefall
With an average of 3.3 million viewers, Fox News anchor Sean Hannity extends his status as the King of Cable News to five months, reports Forbes.
In second place is Fox’s Tucker Carlson, who averaged 3.144 million viewers.
Next up is the now-deposed Rachel Maddow, whose MSNBC show was number one in 2017. She is now in third place with 2.874 million average viewers.
Of every basic cable channel, including ESPN, USA, TNT, etc., Fox News is the most-watched and has been for 20 straight months.
Overall, Fox averaged a whopping 2.8 million viewers during primetime and only lost -3 percent of viewers when compared to February of last year.
CNN, on the other hand, is collapsing.
The far-left cable channel averaged only a measly 979,000 primetime viewers, a catastrophic drop of -16 percent when compared to last year. The anti-Trump network lost a whopping -19 percent of its total day viewers.
Is CNN going to eventually go down in flames? What will it take for them to become more balanced? At this point, it might be too late. Their brand is damaged.
