According to a new report from Fox News “CNN has been hemorrhaging viewers since former President Trump left office, losing roughly half of its audience in key measurables since January following a brief post-Election Day spike.”
The report found “CNN averaged 2.5 million primetime viewers from Nov. 4, the day following the presidential election, through Inauguration Day on Jan. 20. But viewers fled the liberal network once President Biden took office, and CNN has averaged only 1.6 million primetime viewers from Jan. 21 through March 15.”
In addition “CNN’s viewership during the primetime hours of 8-11 p.m. ET dropped 36% since Biden took office after it spiked following Election Day. CNN’s primetime viewership decline was even sharper among the key demographic of adults age 25-to-54, plummeting 47% during the same period,” according to the report.
During a recent appearance on CNN, Washington Post media critic Erik Wemple blasted the network for their pandemic times Cuomo brothers’ “love-a-thon,” adding that Chris is not allowed to cover his brother now that he’s embattled in multiple scandals.
“I think that is a major black eye for CNN,” Wemple said.
