Major Shakeup Coming To CNN — ‘Good Number’ Of Staff Could Be Let Go
CNN has been failing for years. I think that the only thing that’s even keeping it alive is donors who want to continue to fund the propaganda network because they certainly don’t generate enough revenue from their viewership and sponsors to keep the company afloat.
There are a handful of hosts who I can think of just off the top of my head that make the network a skid mark in America’s underwear and are only causing more division in our country.
Well, according to some recent reports things may get shaken up a bit and some staff are in jeopardy of losing their jobs.
According to Fox News,
During the month of October, nearly every single program failed to average 1 million viewers, according to Nielsen data. This marks historic lows for the so-called “most trusted name in news.”
The only two exceptions during the 31 days were the 90-minute Biden town hall, which still came in third place behind Fox News and MSNBC averaging only 1.2 million viewers, and the 30-minute “Cuomo Prime Time” that aired immediately after with 1.1 million.
CNN averaged a devastating 480,000 in total day viewership in October, a whopping 76% drop from January amid the chaotic transition from President Trump to President Biden. Fox News averaged 1.4 million and maintained its total day viewership from earlier this year while MSNBC averaged 657,000 viewers in October, resulting in a 61% drop from January. The network lost 14% of its viewers from September.
CNN’s weeknight primetime lineup didn’t fare much better, averaging just 733,000, an astonishing 78% drop from January. MSNBC averaged 1.5 million viewers in primetime, losing over half of its audience since January. Meanwhile, Fox News dominated with 2.6 million viewers, marking only a 14% decrease from the turbulent weeks leading up to Biden’s inauguration.
The staff that they’re probably willing to part with likely won’t be the hosts of the programs like Don Lemon, Anderson Cooper, or Chris Cuomo, but we can always hope.
