Liberal networks have been struggling to remain relevant in a post-Trump era after years of constantly attacking. No other network seems to have struggled more than CNN which has been steadily bleeding viewers since Biden’s inauguration. CNN’s once-popular program “The Lead by Jake Tapper” has reportedly lost 75% of its viewers since January.

Fox News reports:

Tapper’s program averaged 2.8 million viewers in January but settled for only 706,000 in the 4 p.m. ET timeslot from May 31 through June 23, losing three-quarters of its audience in the process. Tapper’s second-quarter viewership is down 49% compared to the first quarter.

While January featured a historic news cycle with the Capitol riot, the inauguration of President Biden and the lead-up to former President Donald Trump’s second impeachment trial, his direct timeslot competition on Fox News has lost a fraction of the viewers that “The Lead” has. “Your World with Neil Cavuto” has kept 1.1 million of the 1.5 million that tuned in during the jam-packed first month of 2021.

Tapper has also lost significant viewers among the key news demographic of adults age 25-54, dropping 79% of January’s audience during the first three weeks of June in his timeslot. Tapper’s show is down 47% in the second quarter compared to Q1 among the category most coveted by advertisers.

In April, CNN awarded Tapper with an extra hour and expanded the show from 4-6 p.m. ET but the move hasn’t paid off in the ratings department for the struggling network. “The Lead” averaged only 799,000 viewers during the 5-6 p.m. ET window through June 23, while Fox News’ “The Five” averaged 2.6 million during the same timeslot to beat Tapper by a whopping 229%.

Tapper is as phony as the day is long. And doubles down on that by being a flat-out LIAR.

Couldn’t happen to a more “deserving” network – and an equally-“deserving” host!! Good riddance to bad rubbish!! But as long as CNN keeps these losers on the air, the better off (and better informed!) the rest of the country will be!! Meantime, Tucker Carlson is wiping the floor with these losers!! YEA!!

Couldn’t happen to a nicer JERK. You invest all your personal capital in ‘Orange-Man-Bad’ and see where it gets you. Now he cannot kick the Orange Man around any more like he once did and he has lost his raison d’etre. N’est pas??? His TV presence is devoid of any redeeming qualities or content whatsoever.

For a man with Tapper’s education, you’d think he’d be a lot smarter. Perhaps he was handed too much and earned too little. I wonder if he thinks America has sufficient resources to simply give everyone what he was given. Regardless, it seems he’s learned to earn a handsome living by pretending that socialism works.

Too bad the viewers didn’t catch on to their faux broadcasts, and the untruths they put out 24/7, prior to the election. Perhaps the true winner would would have been announced! Liberal is as liberal does — and sooner or later it comes back to bite them in their arS!!! 🙁

CNN is a bigger fraud than Beijing Biden. Nobody wants them, yet they are still around. Why is that? Who is paying to keep these frauds in power? That’s the question I want answered.

The viewership of CNN is inflated. CNN is forced upon travelers at our nation’s airports and other public facilities. There’s a misconception that these viewers/hostages are actually paying attention to it.
