We’re still months and months away from anyone casting a vote in the Democrat primary, but CNN is determined to milk the election for all its worth.
That was obvious with their ridiculous seven hour long town hall event on climate change. But very few people tuned in to watch.
The Daily Caller reports:
Fox News And MSNBC’s Regular Programming Beat CNN’s Climate Change Town Hall In TV Ratings
CNN’s seven hour Climate Change town hall Wednesday night was not enough to propel the network past Fox News and MSNBC in the day’s cable television ratings.
During the same time period that Democratic presidential candidates were discussing their plans to combat climate change with a town hall audience, Fox News pulled in 2.5 million viewers compared to just 1.1 million for CNN, according to Nielsen Media Research.
Fox News also continued to dominate prime-time, averaging nearly 3.2 million viewers, compared to roughly 2.1 million for MSNBC and 1.4 million for CNN.
Climate change has become one of the most discussed issues during the 2020 Democratic primary, with some candidates making dire predictions about the world coming to an end in 12 years unless bold action is taken to confront the changing climate.
People had a lot of fun with this on Twitter:

CNN is much smarter than we give them credit for. They need Trump for ratings. They WANT him re-elected. Giving the entire Democrat field 7 hours to reveal how insane they are about “climate change” is a huge win for Trump. And one the Democrats never should have agreed to.

That last one makes an excellent point.
