CNN just experienced its worst month in almost 20 years

"May saw CNN's average audience fall to 388,000, of which a mere 113,000 are adults in the 25-54 age bracket that advertisers covet. The figures represent an exponential increase in the rate of decline for the channel, which is also undermined by the internet's rise in popularity as a breaking news source."

"It's really a bloodletting; there's no other way to describe it," says Robert Thompson, professor of Television and Popular Culture at Syracuse University.

*waits to hear how CNN is too

*waits to hear how CNN is too big to fail*

CNN is the least of our worries

FOX, however, is of great concern. They're at the top of their game and yet are a huge part of the propaganda machine. I used to avidly watch FOX (I liked Hannity, Malkin and O'reilly the most) but it wasn't until I started actually studying and researching more of history that I realized that most of what these people were saying wasn't accurate at all. FOX is popular because it pushes conservative talking points but it's one of the biggest assaults on knowledge and truth I've see in my short life-time.

down, down, down...........going, going, gone!

Glad to hear about it. Even Fox news refuses to give the Paul supporters and Dr Paul a fair shake. And it is not just us that have noticed !

It's because they lie and push propaganda

It's simple, because well informed internet users can verify that they lie and push propaganda, hence everyone that's waking up is leaving in droves from Fox, CNN and all those that have been biased and perpetuated fabricated news and propaganda.

I gave up Television in 1991.

I gave up television in 1991. I was amazed to find out there was a whole world out there. Rented movies when I wanted to watch something. Embraced the internet when I discovered it. Mostly though, I went out and enjoyed life.

Honestly, I don't even know what CNN or Fox or any of those other programs is like.

This man's title exemplifies the fact that our institutions of higher learning are anything but.

Down With State TV

Because that's what they are. CNN, FOX, ABC, MSNBC, we're done with State TV.

Moreover, its time to abolish the FCC, which played an important role in creating these repugnant propaganda outlets.

Worst figures than actually "Reported"...

MSM NEVER report the actual facts and figures!

WINNING!!

One down....................

:D

~Your perception becomes your reality~

My predictions...

TYT will be moved from Current to CNN, and it will be hyped as some false libertarian show. That goon Cenk talks about how he is a libertarian, but he couldn't be further from the truth. Bad actor is bad.

CNN would be smart to give the Judge his Freedom Watch show back, but I am sure he is under contract with Fox Snooze and it would never happen.

So Ron Paul is more Popular than CNN?

Nice! :)

Oh no, here comes a crack

Oh no, here comes a crack down on the Internet... be prepared... the Elite will not leave easily when they have been drunk on power for so many years!

I'm sure that's the TOP issue

I'm sure that's the TOP issue on the Bilderberg Meeting Agenda!

Well Done

We do have the power to bring them down without violence. It's called boycotting and American's are disgusted and waking up.

Half-measures

Simply boycotting the channel is insufficient. While yes their advertising revenue is decreased, your cable or satellite subscription mostly just pays for content. If you cancel your cable subscription, you'll deprive them of even more revenue. Anyways, we'll change Turner/Time Warner (and all the other media conglomerates) yet!

Not just CNN

Apparently the entire Cable News has fallen sharply during this season.

Of course they do not mention that just perhaps we of the Ron Paul campaign have VOTED ALL OF THEM DOWN. Why? Well it seems that people like Bill O'Reilly, Hannity, and of course Rush and Glenn have betrayed those who put them in such a "high" rating order.

They chose to screw with President Paul like the GOP and RNC has done over and over and over. It is payback time folks!

FOX is down big time with the Youth...

As usual, Fox News comes in first among the cable news channels in May, but even the perennial ratings leader was not immune to a decline this month. Compared to May 2011, FNC is down -6% in Total Viewers and -12% in the A25-54 demographic in Total Day. In primetime, the network is down -9% in Total Viewers and -23% in A25-54 viewers.

Their web news format sucks for one

but sadly I think the biggest reason for the decline is their lack of sexy fluff pieces. Theyre propaganda for sure, but I think their popularity is dropping because they're so boring. They lack the dumbed down, titillating celebutard-centered, bikini flashing features that the other networks mix into the line-up. I'm not so sure it's because people are getting smarter or FOX would be the 1st to go. I just think people find CNN boring and not very arousing.

Actually

All that reporting on Hollywood trash annoys the shit out of me. I hate it. It really makes me angry. I hate having to hear about Paris Hilton, That Lohan trash and Lady Gaga. Its why I don't watch. The other reason is the propaganda. But Fox News got me with their neocon spin on the economy. The way they talked about the unemployed, and the things they said and the people thay had on as guest said. I can't abide by that. I can't stand having a bunch of neocon blue blood country club a**holes tell me I don't work hard enough, or that Americans aren't working hard enough. It pisses me off badly. The propaganda is sickening. I can't stand it. When I do happen to see it because someone else is watching I leave the room.

They need a news porn format

They need a porn news format to gain some audience for the NWO propaganda they report, maybe a busty blonde reading the telemprompter while getting pounded from behind: “ The head of the U.N. nuclear agency pushed Monday for aAAAA, yeah, yeah baby, smack that azz...a breakthrough pact with Iraaah,ah,n to resume inspections into...yeah baby, that's so big, harder, harder...suspected secret atomic weapons work and possibly set in motion further...right there, right there, ah, ah... dealmaking when envoys from Tehran and world powers gather later this week in Baghdad. Don't forget to watch our 9 o'clock special when Lisa would tell you the latest news while riding a huge "chcolate stick"

well...sort of

maybe dialed back a bit, but still in HD with little, drag & drop thumbnails you can title and plop onto your facebook wall: "ZOMG Schoolgurl cannibals in plaid skirts caught on cell-phone {Warning: graphic}"

I guess people didn't

I guess people questioning the Gov. didn't appreciate being called "truthers", "birthers", "racist", "extremists", “skeptics", "pessimism porn addicts",etc.

I'm so glad all their numbers are down.
