The media meltdown following Robert Mueller’s “no collusion” conclusion got even worse this week; with CNN’s primetime ratings dropping a stunning 33% from the same week last year.
According to Ad Week, the Cable News Network lost one-third of its primetime viewers compared to the same period in 2018.
“Versus the comparable week in 2018, Fox News was -4% in total prime time viewers, MSNBC was -4% in total prime time viewers, and CNN was -33%. In total day viewers, Fox was -7%, MSNBC was -5% and CNN was -21%,” reports the industry website.
In total daytime viewers, CNN fell behind Fox News, MSNBC, Nickelodeon, HGTV, and Investigation Discovery.
MSNBC is also experiencing a massive drop in ratings.
“Maddow lost nearly 500,000 viewers for her first episode following the release of Barr’s letter. Then she plummeted 13 percent in April compared to the same month in 2018, according to TVNewser, falling behind “Tucker Carlson Tonight” in the process. In May she averaged 2.6 million – her worst month since Trump took office – and a far cry from the 3.1 million viewers she averaged during the first quarter of 2019,” reports Fox News.
“MSNBC is standing by her because she still has a large viewership emotionally invested bringing down Trump,” said one Cornell professor. “That some reporters refuse to go on her show is important, but is unlikely to change her behavior. Maddow long ago carved out her faux-intellectual paranoid niche, and she’s stuck in it.”
President Trump slammed CNN during his overseas trip to the UK earlier this month; posting “Just arrived in the United Kingdom. The only problem is that “@CNN is the primary source of news available from the U.S. After watching it for a short while, I turned it off. All negative & so much Fake News, very bad for U.S. Big ratings drop. Why doesn’t owner @ATT do something?”

“I believe that if people stoped using or subscribing to @ATT, they would be forced to make big changes at @CNN, which is dying in the ratings anyway. It is so unfair with such bad, Fake News! Why wouldn’t they act. When the World watches @CNN, it gets a false picture of USA. Sad!” he added.

CNN MELTDOWN: Don Lemon BLAMES TRUMP for DEATH THREATS
CNN anchor Don Lemon unloaded on President Trump Tuesday night, viciously blaming the Commander-in-Chief for death threats leveled at the cable news network; breathlessly claiming the suspect was inspired by Trump’s repeated references to “fake news.”
“This story hits close to home. A Michigan man has been arrested after he allegedly made numerous calls to CNN headquarters in Atlanta threatening to kill this network’s employees,” said Lemon.
“There’s nothing random about this. Nothing. This is what happens when the President of the United States -Donald Trump- repeatedly attacks members of the press simply for reporting facts he does not like,” he added.
“Mr. President, I’m going to speak directly to you. We are not the enemy. We are not trying to silence you. It’s the job of the free press to report the facts, to ask question, tough questions, ones you don’t like,” said the CNN anchor. “When you make that baseless and incendiary charge, be aware that people are listening to you, some very dangerous people.”

CNN MELTDOWN: Network’s Obsession with TRUMP’S DIET Continues
With global events and national news changing from minute to minute, the left-wing reporters at CNN continue their breathless coverage of the President’s diet; posting a strange tweet that questioned the President’s “ice cream” intake.
Weeks after the President received a clean bill of health from a non-partisan Navy doctor, the mainstream media refuses to drop the issue; continually covering the President’s diet, his mental health, and his body language.
CNN’s official twitter account highlighted the network’s obsession Wednesday morning, saying Trump “reportedly enjoys treating himself to an extra scoop of ice cream after dinner every night.”
“Trump, who reportedly enjoys treating himself to an extra scoop of ice cream after dinner every night, proposes cutting billions in social support and health care, and delivering sad boxes of cereal and canned meat,” tweeted the network.
