CNN mired in a credibility crisis as ratings continue to collapse, experts say
By Brian Flood | Fox News
12 July 2019
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.


“The numbers warrant concern, yes. Q2 was a particularly news-rich quarter highlighted by the release of the Mueller report and all the aftermath and controversy following it, plus the launch of several high-profile Democratic candidacies including Joe Biden and Pete Buttigieg to propel 2020 coverage into high gear,” Concha said. “It may only get worse in Q3 given the numbers we’re already seeing.”

CNN did not immediately respond when asked for comment.

CNN started off the third quarter with “the network’s lowest average since 2015” when it comes to primetime viewers among the key demographic of adults age 25-54, according to TVNewser. But the network has extended various contributors through the election, indicating that its apparent anti-Trump programming strategy will remain in place for at least the duration of the president’s first term.

“You know the answer,” a longtime CNN employee said when asked if staffers are panicked about the ratings decay before declining further comment.

Another current CNN employee told Fox News that there is widespread concern about the network’s ratings problem, but high-profile hosts such as Anderson Cooper remain unfazed.

“The people that are concerned – it’s certainly not the anchors who have lucrative contracts – it’s the people among the lower levels, such as producers and show bookers."

“The people that are concerned – it’s certainly not the anchors who have lucrative contracts – it’s the people among the lower levels, such as producers and show bookers,” the employee said.

A third current staffer told Fox News that CNN “is clearly doing something wrong if the ratings are like this,” before asking, “So why don’t we try something different?”

Cable news viewership has declined in general as more and more consumers cut the cord in favor of OTT streaming services, but CNN’s losses are overwhelming. The network lost 18 percent of its audience compared to the second quarter of last year. CNN also dropped a whopping 38 percent of primetime viewers among the key demo.

“Losing nearly 40 percent of an already-third place audience must be a primary topic in internal meetings, with immediate remedies not readily apparent." — Joe Concha

“Losing nearly 40 percent of an already third-place audience must be a primary topic in internal meetings, with immediate remedies not readily apparent,” Concha said.

CNN’s most popular show, "Cuomo Prime Time," averaged only 910,000 viewers. Fourteen Fox News programs and 10 MSNBC programs attracted larger audiences.
Chris Cuomo and Anderson Cooper are part of CNN’s struggling primetime lineup that lost 38% of its audience in the key demo during the second quarter of 2019.

Reporter-turned-banker Porter Bibb is surprised parent company AT&T hasn't made any changes. "My guess is that senior management is more concerned about the launch of HBO Max than CNN, at least for the moment," he said.

Sagging ratings weren’t the only negative headlines generated by CNN during the second quarter, as the network reduced its headcount days after publically declaring there wouldn’t be mass layoffs.

A CNN spokesperson told Fox News on May 7 that reports of looming layoffs were a “crazy rumor,” but staffers were shocked when members of the network’s Atlanta-based staff who covered health care were shown the door only two weeks later.

CNN also saw over 100 employees accept a voluntary buyout option, losing bureau chiefs and award winners in the process while the network moved into elaborate new New York City digs.

CNN began broadcasting in May from the network’s ritzy new facility in the Hudson Yards area on the West Side of Manhattan. The brand-new, state-of-the-art headquarters is part of a luxurious complex that also features condominiums that start at $4.3 million, high-end restaurants and stores such as Cartier, Rolex, Louis Vuitton and Neiman Marcus.

The second quarter also saw the release of CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta’s anti-Trump book. Before its June release, one current CNN employee told Fox News that  Acosta might not be the right person to cover Trump’s White House these days.

“Jim Acosta is, a lot of times, asking the right questions but it doesn’t always need to be about him and his grandstanding,” the CNN staffer said. “People get tired of it. Acosta is supposed to be a correspondent reporting the facts but you can’t tell the difference between him and a paid pundit.”

MSNBC’s recent Democratic presidential primary debate attracted a large audience, and CNN is set to host its own version later this month. The event would typically be a reason for optimism, but CNN announced on Monday that opinion host Don Lemon would a moderator, raising eyebrows in the process as respected journalists such as Erin Burnett and Poppy Harlow remain on the sideline.

Debate moderators are historically straight-news journalists, as opposed to partisan pundits, but CNN’s decision mirrors NBC’s strategy to allow Rachel Maddow to moderate last month’s Democratic debate. CNN has continued to label Lemon an “anchor” despite him spouting anti-Trump opinions on a regular basis.


Conservative strategist Chris Barron told Fox News that CNN’s decision is “a disservice to voters all across the political spectrum” because Lemon – whose beleaguered primetime show has contributed to the network's ratings crisis -- is so open about his own views.

Watters on CNN hosting Democratic debatesVideo
DePauw University professor and media critic Jeffrey McCall recently told Fox News that Lemon is no longer a news anchor in the traditional sense because of his partisan rhetoric.

“He is a host of an opinion-driven show in which his opinions are front and center. Thus, he is a host rather than a news anchor,” McCall said. “His show does discuss news topics, but it is not designed as an objective news show.”


In recent memory, Lemon has compared Trump to Adolf Hitler, then claimed he “didn’t mean” to compare the president and Hitler. He has also called Trump a “racist,” a “fraud,” “con man,” questioned whether or not the State of the Union should air on a delay to avoid “propaganda," declared that he wouldn’t shake the president’s hand and questioned Trump’s mental fitness.

“To pretend he’s not an opinion host is lunacy,” a CNN employee told Fox News.

Lemon has also suggested Trump doesn’t do enough work, speculated on whether or not the president lies about his weight, tied Trump to the college admissions cheating scheme and took a shot at Trump as he was giving his colleague Chris Cuomo a brief tour of his new studio, suggesting that the president can't afford such a lavish space since he isn't a "real billionaire."

One certainty is that Lemon wasn’t selected to lift the debate’s viewership totals. Lemon’s “CNN Tonight” finished the second quarter of 2019 as the 35th most-watched show on cable news.

ALEXANDRIA OCCASIONALLY-COHERENT (AOC) ANNOUNCES REPARATIONS PLAN
Alexandria Occasionally-Coherent (AOC) Announces Reparations Plan
Satire (An Exclusive Interview with Hugh Betcha)

When Alexandria Occasionally-Coherent wants to create news, she calls for a press conference. But when she wants to grab a headline she does what every smart politician does—she calls ace reporter Hugh Betcha of the mighty Canada Free Press. Hugh, who walks with kings and princes, is widely respected on both sides of the aisle in Washington, and recently won the coveted MSNBC “Conservative Reporter We Most Admire 2019” award was happy to oblige. Occasionally-Coherent, author of Move Over Grandma—The Socialist Case Against Speaker Pelosi (Marxist Press, 2019), and We Can Just Walk—The Case Against Gasoline, (Little Golden Books, 2019), was anxious to announce her reparations plan for the country.

“So you want to pay blacks whose forebears were slaves—is that right?” asked the reporter “isn’t that discriminatory? How about other groups who have been oppressed in the past?”

“Well that is exactly right,” Occasionally-Coherent replied, “this country has oppressed so many groups that it would be unfair to pay only blacks who descended from slaves; so I am expanding eligible groups in order to be all inclusive.”

“So how much are you going to pay and to whom?”

“Well, I think $5,000 in oppression payments sounds about right—for each person who has descended from someone who has been oppressed in the past,” Occasionally-Coherent replied.

Tommy Robinson 'begs' Trump to grant him asylum as he faces UK 'death sentence'
Robinson could be jailed for two years after live-streaming video of defendants accused of the sexual exploitation of young girls.

Far-right activist Tommy Robinson has asked Donald Trump to grant him asylum in the US as he faces being jailed in the UK.

In an interview on the right-wing channel InfoWars on Monday, the former English Defence League (EDL) founder said: "I feel like I'm two days away from being sentenced to death in the UK.

"I beg Donald Trump, I beg the American government, to look at my case. I need evacuation from this country because dark forces are at work.

"This is a direct appeal on behalf of my family - we love the United States, I have no future here [in the UK]."

Robinson, whose real name is Stephen Yaxley-Lennon, claimed he would be killed in jail and said that British prisons are "controlled by jihadi gangs".

Judges are set to give their detailed reasons for the contempt ruling the High Court later on Tuesday.

The 36-year-old filmed defendants accused of the sexual exploitation of young girls and live-streamed the footage, in breach of a reporting ban, outside Leeds Crown Court in May 2018.

He denied any wrongdoing, and said he did not believe he was breaching reporting restrictions.

On Monday, High Court judges Dame Victoria Sharp and Mr Justice Warby found him in contempt in three respects - breaching the reporting restriction imposed on the trial, by live-streaming the video outside a public entrance to the court and "aggressively confronting and filming" some of the defendants.

Robinson is expected to be sentenced on Thursday. Contempt of court carries a maximum sentence of two years.

Billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein was arrested for allegedly sex trafficking dozens of minors in New York and Florida between 2002 and 2005, and will appear in court in New York on Monday, according to three law enforcement sources. Saturday's arrest by the FBI-NYPD Crimes Against Children Task Force comes about 12 years after the 66-year-old financier essentially got a slap on the wrist for allegedly molesting dozens of underage girls in Florida.

REVEALED: The scientific PROOF that shows reincarnation is REAL

WHILE many scientists will dispel the notion of reincarnation as a myth, there are some credible experts out there who believe that it is a genuine phenomenon.

PUBLISHED: Sun, Oct 2, 2016 

Reincarnation is generally a religious concept that implies that upon a select few’s deaths, their soul, mind or conscious is transferred to a new born.
It sounds like the stuff of fantasy, but some scientists do believe that it is a feasible concept.
Dr Ian Stevenson, former Professor of Psychiatry at the University of Virginia School of Medicine and former chair of the Department of Psychiatry and Neurology, dedicated the majority of his career to finding evidence of reincarnation, until his death in 2007.
Dr Stevenson claims to have found over 3,000 examples of reincarnation during his time which he shared with the scientific community.
In a study titled ‘Birthmarks and Birth Defects Corresponding to Wounds on Deceased Persons’, Dr Stevenson used facial recognition to analyse similarities between the claimant and their alleged prior incarnation, while also studying birth marks.
He wrote in his study: “About 35 per cent of children who claim to remember previous lives have birthmarks and/or birth defects that they (or adult informants) attribute to wounds on a person whose life the child remembers. The cases of 210 such children have been investigated. 
“The birthmarks were usually areas of hairless, puckered skin; some were areas of little or no pigmentation (hypopigmented macules); others were areas of increased pigmentation (hyperpigmented nevi).
“The birth defects were nearly always of rare types. In cases in which a deceased person was identified the details of whose life unmistakably matched the child’s statements, a close correspondence was nearly always found between the birthmarks and/or birth defects on the child and the wounds on the deceased person. 
“In 43 of 49 cases in which a medical document (usually a postmortem report) was obtained, it confirmed the correspondence between wounds and birthmarks (or birth defects).”
In a separate study, Dr Stevenson interviewed three children who claimed to remember aspects of their previous lives.
The children made 30-40 statements each regarding memories that they themselves had not experienced, and through verification, he found that up to 92 per cent of the statements were correct.
The article, published on Scientific Exploration, Dr Stevenson wrote: “It was possible in each case to find a family that had lost a member whose life corresponded to the subject’s statements. 
“The statements of the subject, taken as a group, were sufficiently specific so that they could not have corresponded to the life of any other person. 
“We believe we have excluded normal transmission of the correct information to the subjects and that they obtained the correct information they showed about the concerned deceased person by some paranormal process.”
