    I've said a few times before; I'll say it again: Anyone who watches and/or believes CNN is a edited moron.

    CNN mired in a credibility crisis as ratings continue to collapse, experts say
    CNN is suffering a credibility crisis as viewership for the once-proud network continues to crater with no apparent plan in place to fix things anytime soon, according to media watchdogs and insiders.

    CNN’s audience shriveled in the second quarter of 2019, averaging only 541,000 total viewers, less than half Fox News Channel’s 1.3 million average. But CNN struggled even more during the primetime hours of 8-11 p.m. ET, finishing as the fifteenth most-watched network on basic cable behind networks such as TLC, Investigation Discovery and the Hallmark Channel. CNN averaged a dismal 761,000 primetime viewers while FNC averaged 2.4 million.

    The Hill media guru Joe Concha told Fox News that CNN's freefall may not be slowing.


    Basically, CNN is kinda like the liberal circle jerk here: A massive KKK rally of hate, hatred of America and of President Donald Trump.

    CNN puts out truth where Fux news puts out fake information that placates the morons who watch.

    Maybe they could try something novel and start giving accurate and informative reporting. I know it's a stretch, but I think it could help.

    Popularity does not speak to ones credibility.

    So, by your logic, Trump is credible, because he's not popular. Got it.

    I think you got it backwards...

    I would say CNN's credibility crisis is tanking their ratings.

    ... horse goes in front of the cart?

    No, I said it doesn't speak to it. Meaning you can not judge someone credibility by their popularity.
    One can be both popular/unpopular and still lie their teeth, and vice-versa.

    That's true.

    Fox: Popular and credible
    MS-NBC: Popular, not credible
    CNBC: Not popular (as a news source), credible
    CNN: Not popular, not credible

    You're totally right

    CNN was too slow on the draw to go after people who want real news and lost to Fox News

    Then CNN was too slow to go after the moon bat left and lost to MS-NBC

    Now they don't have a niche

    CNN had the sole implanted reporter in Iraq during Desert Storm. That put them on the map. But they never built a bonafied news network, they were always a throw-together that lacked credibility.

    Fux entertainment news is very low IQ programming. I can not stand to watch or hear it for more than 15 or 20 seconds.

    That would be because your IQ is only between 15 and 20, Bear.

    Like when Fox reported that Obama was going on a trip to India that would cost $200 million per day and had ordered 34 naval vessels to sail to the coast of India?

    according to the title of the thread by some confused trump voter, fox channel believer, somehow how many people watch a news show affects their credibility. that is so stupid i can't believe even the dumbest trump stooge can believe that!! if only 4 people watched a news show, that would have no affect at all on their credibility!!

    judging by this criteria, that a show's popularity makes it credible, and there is some kind of ratio between viewership and credibility, then the whole Fox Primetime talking head clown car of bowtie, puffy hannity and nazi-salutin' laura ingraham, put together, is only about 1/4th as credible as the Evening News of the 3 broadcast networks, ABC, NBC and CBS, because the fox clowns get about 5.6 million viewers a night, and the 3 broadcast news shows average about 24.5 million a night.

    How Many People Actually Watch Fox News in America?

    Jan 8, 2019 - Fox News primetime viewers amount to less than 1% of the population. ... the average of Fox News in prime time with 5.6 million viewers.
