It’s been a rough week for CNN. They’re closing their iconic CNN Center in Atlanta (get your selfies with that famous logo while you can.)
And if you want to know why they’re cost-cutting, this might provide a clue. According to last week’s cable news ratings, Fox News now has the top 17 highest-rated shows. MSNBC finally shows up at #18 with Chris Hayes. And CNN doesn’t appear until Jake Tapper’s show pops up at #28.
How far has CNN’s viewership fallen? The #1 show on the list, Fox News’ “The Five,” which airs at 5 pm, has an audience larger than all seven of CNN’s prime time shows combined!
I think someone should investigate to see if maybe someone at CNN caused the recent airline cancellation fiasco in a desperate attempt to boost ratings by stranding people at airports.
