CNN Down by Over 41 Percent from Last Year as Ratings Plummet

For years the Left has blasted the Right for their lack of unity, but looks like things are about to change now.

CNN, a far-left channel in USA, has gone further down in ratings after allegations of fake news by much loved POTUS Donald Trump.

Trump has not shied away from calling the far-left channel out for their dogmatic opinions and for presenting fake news. These claims by the influential POTUS have showed in the trust of users towards them. In an interesting revelation, it was revealed that CNN is experiencing an amazing free-fall. Ratings for the news channel have plummeted by over 41 percent from what they were during this time of the year in 2017.

CNN dropped a whopping 41 percent in daytime and 36 percent in primetime ratings compared to this week last year. AdWeek, which released the information, mentioned, “CNN ranked No. 6 across basic cable in total prime time viewers, and No. 5 in total day this past week. Despite the top 10 finishes, the network was -36 percent in prime time viewers, and -41 percent in total day viewers vs. the same week last year.”

However, the worries for CNN don’t stop over here. Not only did the channel see a drop in its own ratings, but it was also bested by other competitors. Fox News climbed to first position in daytime views as people have started trusting the network as a premier source of trustable news.

During Prime Time shows, CNN slips further down one position— the 6th, while ESPN takes the lead. CNN is currently ranked below Nickelodeon as the cartoon channel has over 39,000 more viewers every day.

The Right is united, and there is no room now for far-left media outlets like CNN.
