CNN’s Viewership Nosedives, Viewers Fed Up With the Network

CNN has had its lowest ratings since 1991 this month, marking a significant cultural shift. Are Americans fed up with the woke propaganda?

CNN’s recent ratings nosedive to its lowest since 1991 isn’t just a mere blip on the media radar—it’s a resounding gong signaling the decline of traditional, left-leaning cable news giants. The New York Post’s revelation that CNN’s primetime viewership has plummeted, scraping just 83,000 viewers from May 13th through May 19th in the crucial 25-54 demographic, is a testament to the network’s fall from grace in an era where truth seems as pliable as warm putty in the hands of these media sculptors.

The lineup of Anderson Cooper, Kaitlan Collins, and Abby Phillip during the 8-11 PM slots is failing to resonate with viewers, who increasingly view CNN as a relic of a bygone era—an era where news outlets dictated what “news” the public should consume, with a heavy dose of bias. This stark contrast in viewership, with Fox News raking in over 186,000 viewers, clearly outperforming CNN, is a clear indicator of where the public’s trust and interest lie.

This isn’t just about poor ratings; it’s a cultural shift. Americans are tired of the incessant left-wing spin, the manipulation of narratives, and the overt politicization of what should be straightforward news. They’re voting with their remotes, turning off CNN’s parade of pessimism and propaganda.

And let’s not mince words—CNN’s new moniker might as well be “Canceled Network Now.” Today’s viewers demand authenticity and unbiased reporting, qualities CNN has long forsaken in favor of sensationalism and a skewed woke agenda.

The takeaway here is clear: CNN is not just battling a ratings slump; it’s facing an existential crisis. If the network continues down this path, it risks not just irrelevance but extinction. For the sake of journalistic integrity and to regain public trust, it’s time for CNN to return to the basics of fair and balanced reporting—otherwise, they should brace for more dismal nights ahead.
