CNN’s Brian Stelter specializes in three things. Complaining about Trump, complaining about FOX News, and targeting conservatives for cancellation.
Unfortunately for him, that business model doesn’t seem to be working anymore.
He has reportedly lost a million viewers since this past January.
CNN’s Ratings Collapse, but Only Newsmax Is Mentioned
Stelter contacted Newsmax at 9 p.m. on Wednesday night and said he would give us just one hour to respond, meaning a 10 p.m. deadline.
Without Newsmax’s response, CNN’s Stelter email newsletter, headlined “Newsmax’s rise and fall,” noted that “Newsmax TV gained a lot of attention last fall when disaffected Fox News fans flocked to the channel en masse. … Newsmax’s Nielsen ratings are way off the post-election highs that I wrote about three and four months ago.”
Stelter chalked up his “Newsmax is falling” story to his theory that “Newsmax is no longer getting a pro-Trump Big Lie ratings boost. Biden is a comparatively tame story.”
As it turns out, Biden is also a very tame story for CNN as well, which has seen its own ratings collapse in recent weeks.

Early Wednesday morning Newsmax sent Stelter the following response: “Only CNN would do a story on Newsmax’s drop in ratings when its own Nielsen total day impressions fell by 45% last week compared to the week after the election, and Brian Stelter’s own ‘Reliable Sources’ show fell by 44% over the same period with, more recently, his show having lost nearly 1 million viewers since January of this year.”
What a shame.

This is how fake news works.
I wonder if @brianstelter is proud of this. https://t.co/7JjPOS2Tzz

CNN is pathetic.
