Woke left-wing journalism wreaks havoc on network TV – channelnews

Woke left-wing journalism has taken its toll on CNN, with questions now being raised about the impact of unbalanced journalism in Australia.

According to Nielsen’s research, CNN’s ratings fell 90% both overall and in the all-important demographic coveted by advertisers in the first week of 2022.

The American cable network which has a reputation for reporting on the left at the expense of balance averaged just 548,000 viewers in the week of January 3 – a significant drop from the nearly 2.7 million viewers for the same week in 2021, according to Nielsen ratings.

Last year’s ratings were rocked by left-leaning network coverage of the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol, giving CNN its most-watched day since Ted Turner launched the medium in 1980.

But on the one-year anniversary of the attacks, viewers turned to CNN’s right-wing rival Fox News, which topped the ratings for coverage of the event.

According to Nielsen, CNN struggled to attract prime time viewers between 8 and 11 p.m., seeing an 83% year-over-year decline. It had 4.2 million total prime-time viewers in the first week of 2021 and just 705,000 last week.

The network has been accused of becoming the public relations department of current US Democratic President Joe Biden, much like what the ABC is doing for the Labor Party in Australia and its current leader Anthony Albanese.

CNN has also been plagued by several high-profile scandals, including the firing of its primetime star Chris Cuomo after the presenter was discovered secretly aiding the defense of his beleaguered older brother, the former governor. of New York Andrew Cuomo, for sexual harassment. allegations that led to his resignation.

In Australia, several outlets, including ABC, The Guardian, The Age and the Sydney Morning Herald, as well as the Nine Network, have been accused of going the same way as CNN.

The New York Post reported that longtime CNN boss Zucker came under fire last month for the network’s low ratings and dealings over scandals involving network stars Cuomo and Don Lemon.

Lemon, the 10 p.m. show host who shadowed Cuomo before his firing, faced his own ethics scandal.

Primetime anchor has come under fire for covering Jussie Smollett’s trial after the ‘Empire’ actor testified in court that the host informed him via text that Chicago police did not believe that he had been the victim of a racist homophobic attack.

CNN did not respond to requests for comment.
