The scandal-ridden CNN plummeted viewership up to 90%  after 2021 coverage.  Meanwhile, Fox maintained its number one spot.

In the first week of the new year, CNN’s ratings took a nosedive by a massive 90 percent both overall and in the all-important demographic coveted by advertisers.

According to Nielsen ratings, the Jeff Zucker-led cable news network averaged just 548,000 viewers during the week of Jan. 3 — a major drop from the nearly 2.7 million viewers for the same week in 2021.

Zucker has been under fire for protecting perverts and pedophiles at his company.

Well, let give me you a bit of a summary of what exactly happened last year:

  • CNN has fired Chris Cuomo for sexual misconduct
  • Anchor Don Lemon accused of sexual assault
  • Producer Rick Saleeby forced out for soliciting underage photos and is under criminal investigation
  • Producer John Griffin is facing federal sex crime charges involving children
  • Jeffrey “Zoomin” Toobin exposed himself during a virtual meeting with colleagues

According to the Daily Mail report:

Scandal-scarred CNN has seen its viewership nosedive by a staggering 90 percent both overall and in the critical demographic coveted by advertisers in the first week of the new year as compared to last year.

The once-proud leader in cable news averaged just 548,000 viewers during the week of January 3, a precipitous drop from the nearly 2.7 million viewers for the same week in 2021, according to the most recent ratings.

Those numbers were supercharged by the left-leaning network’s coverage of the January 6 Capitol Riot, which resulted in CNN having its most-watched day since Ted Turner launched the news outlet in 1980.

However, on the one-year anniversary of the insurrection, viewers chose right-wing rival Fox as it topped ratings for coverage of the event.

CNN also saw an 86 percent decline in the much-desirable 25-to-54 demographic, with a paltry 113,000 tuned in last week, compared to the 822,000 CNN averaged a year ago.

All thanks to Project Veritas who has done fantastic work exposing the corruption at CNN. In fact,

Project Veritas recently outed one of CNN’s producers, Rick Saleeby for soliciting underage photos.
