Trump was great for the liberal media. For four years, networks like CNN and MSNBC saw their ratings soar as leftists tuned in to get their nightly fix of Trump hate.
Now, under Biden, that’s all over. Liberal media outlets are watching their numbers sink lower and lower each day.
What a shame.
The Hill reports:
TV news ratings, online readership plunge during Biden’s first 100 days
During President Biden’s first 100 days in office, weekly full-day cable ratings for CNN and MSNBC have been trending down, according to statistics from ratings company Nielsen.
On average, 1.3 million household viewers were watching MSNBC in the last week of January, shortly after Biden took office. For the week ending April 25, that number was 868,000. At CNN, those figures went from 1.2 million to 749,000.
Even perennial ratings leader Fox News is seeing a decline, though a much smaller one compared to its cable competitors, dipping to just 1.2 million from 1.3 million in late January.
Prime-time cable viewership is also down across the board. In the same time comparisons as the full-day ratings, CNN has lost 792,000 viewers, while MSNBC is down 788,000 and Fox is short 348,000.
Network evening news isn’t faring any better. Ratings leader “World News Tonight” at ABC had 1.8 million fewer viewers in the seven days ending April 25 compared to the last week of January.
NBC’s “Nightly News,” in the No. 2 slot, lost 1.7 million viewers in that same period, while CBS is down 1.2 million.
The biggest problem for most of these media outlets is that their credibility is gone.
No one trusts them, and why should they?
The liberal media are still trying to equate violent looting and rioting with "peaceful protests." https://t.co/2CJcOxERuf

MSNBC and CNN are not even news outlets anymore.
They’re public relations firms for the Democrats.
