For the past few months, things have been getting worse and worse for CNN.
In fact, one would think they can’t get any worse.
But now CNN could go off the air after getting unthinkable news.
Since the release of Robert Mueller’s report into Russia collusion, CNN has been losing viewers faster than anybody thought possible.
As it turns out, people don’t like being lied to for two years.
CNN has made a name for themselves as the go-to network for all things Russia collusion.
While Mueller was compiling his report, not a day went by where CNN didn’t talk about it.
And when they were talking about it, they continually made it clear that collusion was a real thing.
They had their viewers just waiting for Mueller to release his report, and then for Trump to be immediately removed from office.
But now everyone knows Mueller’s report was a big nothing burger and Trump will remain in office.
So viewers just don’t trust CNN like they used to.
And now they are at their worst slump in many years.
Compared to last year, CNN has lost 28% of their viewers based on last week’s numbers.
They averaged 744,000 primetime viewers and just 519,000 total viewers.
That is atrocious compared to other news networks.
Fox News brought in 2.26 million primetime viewers last week and MSNBC brought in 1.5 million.
Clearly the undisputed champion of cable news is Fox News, while CNN is doing so poorly that they may have to make some serious cuts.
In fact, they already have.
Recently, CNN President Jeff Zucker announced 100 voluntary layoffs at their Atlanta headquarters, with even more coming from their London office.
This proves people don’t like being lied to.
CNN likes to paint themselves as a more centrist network without political biases.
But in reality, they are a far-left fake news network that spends all their time spewing anti-Trump talking points to help Democrats.
MSNBC does the same, but they’re able to retain their viewers due to the fact they don’t put on the same façade.
Anchors at MSNBC openly embrace the anti-Trump resistance, and have been looking to gain those viewers since the day Trump came into office.
So it appears that even those who despise Trump still prefer honesty over weak attempts at deception.
Of course, CNN’s ratings slump is also thanks to President Trump himself.
Trump has spent his entire time in the political arena blasting CNN as “fake news.”
While he goes after the entire left-wing media, he’s held particular malice against CNN.
And after having the President expose them for two years in office, they are losing big.
Do you think CNN may end up off the air for good?
