FAKE NEWS FLASH! They are no longer news outlets, they are indoctrination clinics for the Nazi party led by Schumer, Pelosi, Nadler, Schiff, Obama and the radical Islamized morons in Congress. These indoctrination clinics prey on the weak minded, illiterate, malcontents in our society. Their policies are exactly the same as the policies preached by Fidel Castro and Hugo Chavez, and look at where Cuba and Venezuela are today. If you’re a moderate DemoMarxist you are no more than a useful idiot for your Nazi party. Got it?
Please excuse the hyperbole there folks; like the real fake news purveyors it was an attempted attention-getter short on content but big on blasphemous supposition (hint – lies, lies, and fairy tales, does not the news make).
What amazes more than anything is how willing these corporations are to crush their earnings and destroy their brand, aided and abetted of course, by the ‘marks’ and suckers that listen to these carnival barkers selling them a fake bill of goods. Most dogs are smarter than a CNN / MSNBC viewer – it only takes a few fake ball tosses for them to understand the ball wasn’t thrown. These news outlets have lied for years and have been wrong about every prediction they lied about.
Which doesn’t excuse useful idiot Pavlovian viewers, forever waiting for something to happen day after day after day.
In a calmer, more sober vein, CNN for instance, had John Brennan and others as on-air consultants, assuring their viewers for two years that Mueller would deliver indictments against Trump. Mueller, of course, did no such thing. When questioned on air at CNN, Brennan lamely said, ‘well, I got bad information.’ That ‘bad information’ was perpetrated by Brennan and CNN for two-plus years. Now THAT was FAKE NEWS!
Thomas Lifson has a piece in American Thinker which highlights the truth, and is all about the numbers…
The catastrophic ratings decline for both CNN and MSNBC was no temporary blip following publication of the Mueller report. Both cable news outlets had heavily promoted the hoax of Russian collusion with the Trump administration, teasing the hopes of Trump-haters for impeachment and prosecution for treason. Now, those disappointed viewers have gone away, and continue to stay away.
CNN experienced its lowest-rated week since November 2015 in the 25-54 demo. Additionally, MSNBC marked its lowest-rated prime time week of the year in the demo. Rachel Maddow delivered her lowest-rated week of the year in both total viewers and the 25-54 demo.
The most dramatic decline was in the prized demo, age 25 – 54, with MSNBC down 42% and CNN down 43%. Advertisers are getting barely more than half as many potential consumers watching their ads in both cable news outlets.
To be fair, last year was an election year, and Fox News also experienced a decline of 22%, but that is roughly half the decline of the two progressive outlets.
Both CNN and MSNBC are subsidiaries of large publicly-held corporations, AT&T and Comcast, respectively. It is time for the grown-ups at the corporate level to recognize that each of their subsidiaries have adopted a losing business strategy of focusing on left-wing propaganda, a declining market niche. Shareholders need to demand that existing management be replaced at both cable news operations. They have squandered their credibility and need to provide former viewers with visible evidence that they have learned their lessons.

In the old days (James Bond era?!) the Soviet propaganda organs were Pravda (Truth) and Izvestia (News). People joked that there was no truth in Pravda, and no news in Izvestia. Which just happens to be an accurate description of much of today’s (fake) news media.
Of course the majority of Russians at least, knew that there wasn’t much truth in Pravda. The much bigger question remains do the majority of Americans know that there is hardly any truth reported in the mainstream media? Far too many (poll wise) still believe in the Russian Collusion, even after some, what, five-plus(?) separate investigations of one form or another.
Fake news, as the header has it – a very bad taste of just desserts.
And on that note, time for today’s MAGA Pill – President Donald J. Trump (not fake, but real) – MAGA!
