CNN Learns The Risk Of Spreading Fake News

They asked the viewers and the viewers have finally spoken.

Fox News’ Tucker Carlson absolutely dominated CNN last week, beating their entire prime time line up combined in total viewers by over 1,000,000 viewers — and CNN is not handling the news well.

CNN’s entire prime time line up garnered 2,474,000 total viewers compared to Carlson’s 3,475,000 total viewers.

Ratings from Nielsen Media Research for 03/25-03/29:

  • FOX News Tucker Carlson: 3,475,000 total viewers; 625,000 viewers in the 25-54 age demographic
  • CNN Cooper: 810,000 total viewers; 203,000 viewers in the 25-54 age demographic
  • CNN Cuomo: 875,000 total viewers; 217,000 viewers in the 25-54 age demographic
  • CNN Lemon: 789,000 total viewers; 228,000 viewers in the 25-54 age demographic

Fox News’ ratings exploded last week after Attorney General William Barr sent his letter to Congress saying that Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation found no collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.

At first, CNN responded to the blow out in ratings with CNN’s Brian Stelter claiming: “Since the letter’s release on Sunday, there hasn’t been much news.”

After Stelter’s claim was widely mocked, CNN launched a new attack on Fox News, specifically targeting Carlson — after Carlson dominated their entire prime time line up.

“Over the last month, Tucker Carlson’s commercial breaks have had only a smattering of ads from lesser-known brands,” CNN tweeted on Tuesday night. “It might be a new normal for the Fox News host, who has endured ad boycott campaigns since he made racist remarks on immigrants in December.”

CNN’s report promoted the attacks against Carlson from far-left Media Matters, despite the fact that Media Matters’ president came under intense fire last month after it was revealed that he wrote multiple racist, anti-Semitic, and transphobic things before running Media Matters.

CNN reported: “And the ad exodus revved up once more last month, after the liberal watchdog Media Matters unearthed a number of misogynistic and racist remarks that Carlson made on a radio show.”

The Daily Caller reported last month that Media Matters President Angelo Carusone was “leading a boycott campaign against Fox News host Tucker Carlson, a co-founder of The Daily Caller News Foundation, in an attempt to get him fired.”

“Carusone and Media Matters, which openly pine for the destruction of Fox News, have justified the left-wing boycott campaign by pointing to a number of statements that Carlson made on a radio shock jock show between 2006 and 2011,” The Daily Caller continued. “But Carusone has his own track record of inflammatory statements. Carusone’s now-defunct blog included degrading references to ‘trannies,’ ‘jewry’ and Bangladeshis, records maintained by the Internet Archive’s Wayback Machine show.”

Aside from CNN’s non-stop coverage of Russia over the last two years and its overwhelmingly negative coverage of Trump, CNN also has a serious credibility problem as surveys have found that they are viewed as the least trustworthy cable news network.

Carlson responded to the far-left’s attempts to silence him in a fiery statement on Fox News, saying: “One of the only places left in the United States where independent thoughts are allowed is right here, the opinion hours on this network. Just a few hours in a sea of television programming. It’s not much, relatively speaking. For the Left, it’s unacceptable. They demand total conformity.

“For now, just two points to leave you with. First, FOX News is behind us, as they have been since the very first day. Toughness is a rare quality in a TV network, and we are grateful for that,” Carlson continued. “Second, we’ve always apologized when we’re wrong, and will continue to do that. That’s what decent people do. They apologize. But we will never bow to the mob. Ever. No matter what.”

  1. I use to watch CNN and I kept seeing said , that I know did not say at his rallies and the stories where twisted to suit their agenda . I switch to FOX and can actual report the news as I have seen it reported , was the way it was said , nothing added . CNN is out all together in my house , same with ABC , MSCBS , and CBS, and NBC .

    1. Same with our house. The last thing I remember watching on CNN was the bombing of Iraq. That was a long time ago. The network is nothing but garbage reporting, as are all the others you mention. We consistently watch FOX affiliated stations and I listen to them every day on the radio when traveling. The reporters are factual, state when they are simply surmising, and admit when they were wrong.

      1. Sad because you aren’t well informed at all. Get your head out of the and and be brave. There is a whole world of truth out there – and it’s not 7,500 and counting barefaced lies told by your hero.

        1. And we are supposed to believe you are well informed? You and every other liberal bought the pablum the liberal press has been selling for two and a half years. Now we all KNOW is was non-sense; cuts from whole cloth and promoted by the liberal media. The media you get ALL OF your information from, lol… Is this the truth you are talking about??? Bahahahahaha!

          The most uninformed viewers out there are liberals just like you. They live in a fantasy world promoted by CNN and PMSNBC shoveling liberal propaganda like the Trump collusion story until it completely fills your heads while at the same time IGNORING the fact that the dossier used by the FBI was compiled by the Hillary Clinton campaign and the FISA warrants used were also based on all of that nonsense. Its a fantasy where a booming economy, record low unemployment (especially in every minority community where they have the lowest unemployment ever recorded), lower taxes for most people, higher wages, the return of manufacturing jobs (Your hero Obama said they were gone forever) doesn’t matter.

          The fantasy continues with imaginary problems like man-made global warming which will KILL US in 12 years, having an abortion in the last three months of a pregnancy or even killing a baby as its being born or just after isn’t murder, If you like your doctor you can keep your doctor, EVERYONE is going to save $2500 a year on healthcare, we have to PASS the bill so you can find out whats in it, Socialism is a wonderful form of government that’s FAIR, banning guns is going to end gun violence (as evidenced by every major LIBERAL city already bans guns and the murder rate IS THROUGH THE ROOF in these places), Illegal Aliens invading our country in the millions is no emergency and that the federal government is a wonderful, benevolent entity spreading freedom and FAIRNESS throughout the country. Yep, you are way informed with the truth!

          For two years your hero (who’s critical investigation MUST NEVER BE TAMPERED With) was Robert Mueller, until last Sunday when it was revealed that HE FOUND NO COLLUSION!

          Seriously, have liberals been right about anything??

          And the BEST has been saved for last. Liberalism is winning! It is growing so much in popularity that we need to… Lower the voting age to 16, let felons vote, Give drivers licenses to illegal aliens (oh no, they’re not voting in our elections) AND GET RID OF THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE!

          You liberals would be better of getting your information from comic books.

        2. So… because YOU said it, it’s the truth?

          You know what they count as lies?

          Trump: “We had burgers stacked a mile high.”
          Fact checkers: “The burgers were not a mile high.”

        3. Used to be 10,000 Lies…Now 7,500…Next Month It Will Be 5,000 and So On…Yet Can You Tell EVRYONE OF US Just 10 ???

        4. Oh Christ, it’s another one! Don’t panic! You’ve been overexposed to the deep-state 24\7 Trump-Bash, on MSNBC or CNN (most likely). The treatment is to read your Constitution, and try some daily independent thinking exercises using known “facts”, and common sense (it’s ok to look it up) to form ideas. And at least until the symptoms subside, avoid further exposure to leftist talking heads \ commentators \ analysts \ democratic strategists \ or contributors on MSNBC, CNN, PBS,and ideological morons such as Polosi, and Shumer, Obama, or “God forbid”, Cortez,or anyone named Clinton who owns a supposed “charity”. Do this awhile, and it may get better. It depends on justhow brain-washed they’ve gotten you!

      2. Try One America News Network (OANN) I STILL WATCH FOX BUT OANN is now my favorite totally unbiased the plus is they think Trump is a great president too as I do even before I jumped on the Trump train & joined the movement

    2. Actually CNN lets trump present his words himself – no fake news here! It’s all from the horse’s mouth – straight, unvarnished and intellectually examined.

      1. One of the problems with CNN is that many time a sentence and/or paragraph may be cut or totally left out so a non-complete response is shown. It is too easy for them to edit what they want or not want to be shown.

      2. sad that a person can be so brain washed that – real truth just can’t be ‘real’ …try this = help wanted signs everywhere(strong economy) no more rockets flying over Japan (N.K. got scared by Trump) your ‘lying eyes’ just might save your sorry rump from a lifetime of staying stupid.

      3. You must be from LALa Land. CNN is CLINTON NEWS NETWORK which means the news they convey are FAKE NEWS or distorted just like the FAKE DOSSIER paid for by HRC.

      4. You must not listen or see clearly. If you trust CNN for your info I feel sorry for you. You clearly have no clue what is actually going on in America and around the world but one very untrue and biased side when they should be neutral in their reporting.

    3. CNN is just a wing of the Democratic party, they do what they are told. CNN quit reporting news as it happens to reporting news manufactured in the warped minds. CNN ABC CBS NBC MSNBC should all lose their broadcast licenses. New is facts, not BS and lies.

    4. The ONLY appropriately labeled ‘thing’ in CNN Professional Journalism is: CNN LEMON: Don Lemon rates LAST in every category of Professional Journalism you can name. 789,000 total viewers:

      FOX News Tucker Carlson: 3,475,000 total viewers; 625,000 viewers in the 25-54 age demographic
      CNN Cooper: 810,000 total viewers; 203,000 viewers in the 25-54 age demographic
      CNN Cuomo: 875,000 total viewers; 217,000 viewers in the 25-54 age demographic
      CNN Lemon: 789,000 total viewers; 228,000 viewers in the 25-54 age demographic

  2. Tucker Carlson is putting up some great #s on FOX viewership & has been doing so for some time. He continues to have a variety of guests that bring viewers both informative and controversial discussions reative to our Govt. and world “happenings”. His responses to negative critics are not only spot on but extremely entertaining. Wishing him the best of continued success!

    1. Oh that is too bad as you are getting an extreme right wing slant – trump’s station you know. Garbage in – garbage out. Try CNN or Democracy Now.

      1. I’m done with CNN. Have been for some time. Two straight years of Russia Collusion. Nothing regarding Hillary’s criminality. So obvious. When do you hear them talk about the booming economy, low unemployment, urban development programs, prison reform, and on and on? How many times have you watched fox news, hear about something important and ask yourself “why don’t the other stations report this”? Gee, I wonder.

      2. S. Jenka: You appear to have imibed tooooo much of the Nobummmmmer Kooll-aid.

    2. CNN is Was and Still Is America’s 🇺🇸 PUBLIC ENEMY #1 👍 And Their Corrupt Executives and Broadcasters Are All [KNOWINGLY] GIZMO BOUND And Will Be Tried By a Military Tribunal For Treason Sedition and Conspiracy! And Americas True Patriots Can’t Wait 👍 God Bless America and Dam The Traitors 🦅

    1. Also they are not posting my replies as they re not “Fox Correct,” so they’re getting one sided remarks – their own. Same as The White House. Only pro-trump remarks are posted. They won’t post this either. That’s how unfair – just like FOX – THEY ARE.

    2. Yep that’s what you say when you have no facts to back you up…..grow up!!!

  3. What I would like to know is, How many tv’s counted in the 2.4 million cnn viewers, are tv’s in bars, restaurants and airports that everybody ignores?

    1. WAIT!!! I watch those … when its FOX on the Screen … Either Financials or Fox News … when its any of the other networks its basically comic relief …
      That’s a sad commentary but it’s true nonetheless …
      On the other hand …
      WHAT was FOX THINKING …!?!
      Donna Brazil … ex DNC person who help the Dems CHEAT? … Not to mention being basically corrupt as person

      1. The ones that I have seen have the ‘closed captioning’ ON! That way, we can read the lies.

  4. CNN is like the New York Times. That paper should have been gone long ago. But back door money has kept them afloat. I find it absurd that any company would advertise with either of them because so few people actually watch or see the ads. I honestly don’t even know what channel CNN is on my TV.

    I wonder what wonder less Cuomo will say now!
    He should marry Shifty Adam Schiff and have
    Robert Francis O’Rourke the Counterfeit Latino
    bake them a dirt wedding cake!!!!

  6. The only and I mean ONLY reason that CNN is even on the airwaves is because if you have Cable TV you are forced to pay for them with your Basic Cable Package. Otherwise that network ship would have sailed years ago!

  7. I used to listen to CNN but after last two years appear in Evans repeat the same story over and over
    without any proof or any even any consideration to whether it was true or not they just gave their own opinions have no news
    At least on Fox you get to hear that it is their opinion but they tell you right out this is our opinion
    And I wouldn’t believe anything CNN says matter of fact they said the sun was going to come up tomorrow I wouldn’t believe it I would have to check with fox to see whether or not it was

  8. CNN will never admit or accept proof of their fake news reports. That’s why people are dropping out. They know CNN is selling dirt and they have nothing to offer but lies and hateful talk. Who needs it?

  9. Boy … times have changed!!!!! 30+ years ago CNN was the place to go for news! Not any more!!

  10. CNN, if I’ve ever seen a Propaganda Fake News outlet, CNN, sure Leads the Pack.
    Why would anyone want to Lesson to this un-investigated fake news.

  11. There is a reason they are referred to as the Clinton News Network. CNN wouldn’t recognize real news even if Fox presented it to them.

  12. the msm is basicly reporting what is known as yellow journalism telling part of story not complete detailswhich changes the artical meaning sometimes entirely. i also look at this reporting as disshonest in nature . lately been looking at off msm sites to complete story im intrested in.

  13. CNN and MSNBC are totally disgusting to watch – They are so biased and never say one good thing about what is going on in our country. I am a Fox News watcher and love Tucker Carlson and of course Sean Hannity. I switch to see what is going on at CNN and MSNBC and it is negative and lie after lie. They all hate President Trump and he is the only President that is standing up for our country. These dumb democrats need to wake up – they have no policy that would be good for this country. We do no want Socialism – look at Venezuela. I cannot figure out why Hollywood is so against our President. We need the wall – here again the other channels do not show what is really happening with all the people at the border. It is a crisis – we will not have a country if this keeps up. Come in legally like most of the people have done in the past. Stop the drugs from coming in and killing our young people. And stop the killing of the American citizens by the illegals and then letting them go to do it again.

  14. Love tucker & Sean & the rest of the reporters @ fox. Truth in reporting is important!

  15. People I am calling and complaining about advertising on CNN and MSNBC I will not buy there products it works I had company’s call me a d ask

  16. now is the time for democrats to run, not walk away from cnn and and democratic party. we welcome u all to fox

  17. CNN spokespeople are such wimps. The excuses they make up are pathetic. “Not much news.” Why don’t you just do what you always do and make some up?

  18. Why? does Trump have not have the ability to have the Armed Forces arrest the Principals of CNN . Charge them with Treason with penalty of death, or Cease and Desist until proven innocent. Then , take CNN off the air! Of course this can make CNN pay out huge legal,
    fees, publishing the sponsors, while this is going on, worse , have the FCC freeze the stocks invested in CNN would drive them to thier knees!!

    Democrats will be going ballistic, yes ,, given the huge publicity ..too many manipulative lies flat out ,,the public heading into 2020 could be driven not to vote for democrats, worse charging the democrats with aiding, abetting etc, ,, not a cool scene, but with immigration issues the “entertainment industry ” image is
    going to become toilet food. Question is in essence who has the bigger genitals ??CNN or the Republicans ?
    Properly handled ,,is the key –this is a vote getter !!

  19. Boycott ALL the Fake News Media channels. You know who they are. Hit them in their pocketbooks. Destroy their racists personal political opinionated narratives and agenda… They are better known as the Bash our President and Conservatives with Fake News and lies Channels. Boycott them into submission. They deserve no better.

  20. Really SAD/DISMAL numbers, after all, this country has a population of over 300 MILLION and so FEW are watching “news”, whether it’s CNN or Fox, then, when “election” time comes, MOST of ALL Americans have NO clue/insight of “WHAT”/WHO to “vote FOR, plus it is in over-all NOT even the MAJORITY voting, LESS than HALF….REALLY, REALLY SAD….!!!!

  21. Anyone who thinks CNN presents real news is delusional or just a liar. It’s SO OBVIOUS that the MSM is extremely biased against Trump even a child can se it.

    CNN is the laughing stock of the “news” world.
