Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, May 25, 2019

CNN's prime time hosts can only hope it will be better in the new building. As CNN prepares to move its prime time studios and operations to a glitzy new building at New York City's brand new--and widely reviled--Hudson Yards development, the network saw its prime time lineup drop 26% in April compared to the same month one year ago. CNN's total audience in prime time was well under a million viewers--767,000--while competitors MSNBC and Fox News finished the month far ahead: MSNBC in second place overall with 1.660 million total viewers, and Fox News leading all of cable with a total audience of 2.395 million. April ranks as CNN's lowest-rated month among total viewers in nearly four years, since October 2015. CNN's Cuomo Primetime, which has been the network's highest-rated hour, drew a total audience of 917,000 viewers in April, the show's worst-ever performance.

Unwatchable. Every time I surf by CNN, there's always a panel of "experts" who try to outdo each other on how Trump is so evil and mean, with no one taking an alternative viewpoint. I never see just plain news, unless somehow Tump is involved. They've jumped the shark, and new management and reporters need to be put in place if they ever want to regain any form of credibility.

Dork prefers Fox, their panels of "experts" are always trying to outdo each other on how Trump was chosen by God.

You are more likely to know a Hooker than someone that watches CNN.

I met this one, I'll call her "Mrs. Clown," who was quite impressive. Not much on intelligent conversation, but that's because she only has her hubby to talk to.

Comrade Gracie loves to be lied to and to take commands from the Fox News Nazi's.
If Tucker told him to jump off the worlds tallest building, Gracie wouldn't hesitate to oblige.

Sponge Bob Squarepants and Judge Judy have larger viewing audiences - by far - than Fox News. 2.4 million viewers in primetime is a blip on the TV radar.

And they're losing the coveted 25-54 year old viewers in droves.

As more Fox News viewers (typically seniors) die off, so will their viewership and advertising revenue.

--Fox News. 2.4 million viewers in primetime is a blip on the TV radar.

Good point. Judging by the number of times Fox is mentioned on the retort, one would think they had at least 24 million viewers and are the masters of the media universe.

This is a political site. Fox News is purely political. Idiots like you believe them. Most Americans don't.

DUH

Blip? You are lying as usual. JJ avgs 9.5Million viewers all day. Fox avgs 2.4Million over 3 hour timeslot. Hannity does 3.2Million all by himself.

And they're losing the coveted 25-54 year old viewers in droves.

So? So why is CNN dying?

My mom watches CNN and Maddow like she's witnessing the second coming.

Then her friend calls, and she says, "Yes, I'm watching it. Can you believe it? We're all going to die."

The other day she's loading the dishwasher and says, "Did you hear there's a constitutional crisis?"

LOL. Jesus. you fruitcakes have my mom in hysterics. I'm taking away the remote.

Move out of your mother's house like most adults have.

There IS a constitutional crisis.

Trump is farting at the Constitution and engaged in all sorts of nefarious and unconstitutional actions to save his hide.

No one has the amount of time you do to blather unless you're unemployed and living with your mother.

We took care of my mom in our house and now we take care of my MIL with dementia in the same way. So --.

I quite watching CNN long ago. The only two political-ish shows I watch on any regular basis are Public TV's "News Hour" and "The 11th Hour"

I don't need someone to tell me their opinions. I want news, verifiable, sourced news. Then I form my own opinions.

Fox News is nothing but propaganda during prime time. They have some people who tell the truth, but they're stuck in daytime slots. Primetime is one ridiculous phony nonsense after another. Not a single call for the President of The United States to adhere to the separation of powers and respect Congress, an equal branch of our government. And so on ... They're traitorous -------- and little but mouthpieces for only one side of the American political spectrum.

Oh, I have a very large sense of humor and laugh all the time. Just not over right wingers and Republican politicians and pundits. They piss me off. I hate what they've done to this country. Even eating their own when they've *gasp* dared to work across the aisle to do something for the benefit of all.

Was a time I could support a Republican, but never again. They're proven hypocrites and liars who care nothing about average Americans.

'Cause it's true. They lie and lie and lie and make a big deal out of nothing while ignoring everything and anything they'd have crucified Obama over it if he'd have done it instead of Trump.

Surely, as an 'independent' you can see that, right CRASSUS?

Right, Mr. Independent? (SUUUUUURE you are)

Fox News ratings are just a testament to the fact that there is a portion of this nation who prefers to have their opinions confirmed than to be confronted with the truth. There is no shortage of stupid people in this country, that is a certainty.
