CNN’s Slow Painful Death Spiral

Posted August 29th, 2018 by Iron Mike

Viewership plunges: DOWN 15% daytime; DOWN 12% primetime. Worse, CNN dropped 24% in the advertiser-critical age 25-54 demographic.   I call it “Death by Truth Eating Bacteria”.

In the decades to come,  Marketing and Journalism professors may point to the slow death of the Cable News Pioneer as Group Suicide by Left-Wing Ideology.

This past few days we’ve witnessed a perfect case of CNN being so very eager to GET TRUMP – that they fell for either a  (a.) bald-faced LIE,  or (b.) a legal blunder so huge it should get Lanny Davis DISBARRED!

Lanny has been a Clinton lawyer since the 90s, – and signed on to represent crooked Trump attorney (and back-stabber) Michael Cohen.

He went on CNN with a story that Trump ~ somehow ~ ‘knew in advance’ of (Russian / Ukrainian / Chinese / Seth Rich ) attempts to hack Hillary and the DNC servers.

Then he had to back-peddle – quickly.  He has contaminated Mueller’s case against Cohen,  and tainted that entire investigation (aka Witch-Hunt).

When a newspaper,  a TV or Radio Station,  or a major network loses VIEWERS,  – the rate they get to charge advertisers drops VERY QUICKLY.   Suddenly they can no longer afford research staff,  BIG $$$ Talking Heads,  or bottomless expense accounts.

How much Flex-Seal and how many Sham-WoWs can you sell to support Wolf Blitzer…?

And CNN never saw it coming!

??????????????????? WHAT are they thinking ????????????????????

    CNN is so bloody negative. They have a difficult time saying anything nice about the opposition, even if they have done something good or have won an award. If you have an “R” next to your name they will totally ignore you.
