Fake News CNN Reaches Three-Year Ratings Low in Midst of Impeachment Reporting
CNN hit a three-year ratings low in the midst of its breathless anti-Trump impeachment reporting.
The Daily Caller reported last week that the network had its lowest primetime ratings in three years during the Thanksgiving holiday week, averaging just 643,000 primetime viewers.
Meanwhile, Fox News (unsurprisingly) dominated the ratings race, averaging nearly 2.2 million primetime viewers–higher than CNN and MSNBC combined:
Fox News averaged nearly 2.2 million viewers in primetime last week, including 303,000 in the coveted age 25-54 demographic, according to Nielsen Media Research. MSNBC averaged over 1.3 million viewers in primetime last week, with 187,000 in the 25-54 demographic, while CNN averaged just 643,000 primetime viewers, with 138,000 coming from the 25-54 demographic.
CNN has been obsessing over the impeachment of President Trump for months now, and in October, a network whistleblower released undercover video exposing the news outlet’s president pushing employees to publish stories about “moves towards impeachment.”
CNN president Jeff Zucker says in a recording obtained by Project Veritas, “Let’s just stay very focused on impeachment. We’re moving towards impeachment. I mean, don’t like, you know we shouldn’t pretend this is going one way. And so, all these moves are moves towards impeachment.”
The same Project Veritas report also revealed undercover video of a CNN employee claiming that Zucker “hates” President Trump and has a personal vendetta against him.
“Jeff Zucker, basically the president of CNN has a personal vendetta against Trump,” said Nick Neville, a CNN employee. “It’s not gonna be positive for Trump. He hates him. He’s going to be negative.”

A recent Rasmussen poll has found that a majority of Americans see through the media bias towards President Trump and actually believe journalists are trying to help impeach the commander in chief.
Those surveyed were asked:
- When they write or talk about the impeachment effort, are most reporters trying to help impeach President Trump or block his impeachment? Or are most reporters simply interested in reporting the news in an unbiased manner?
Fifty-three percent of likely voters believe reporters are trying to assist in the Democrats’ impeachment efforts and only 32 percent of likely voters believe reporters are “simply interested in reporting the news in an unbiased manner.”
