CNN and MSNBC ratings continue free-falling after Trump: ‘Any YouTube video gets more’

Since Donald Trump left office, it seems, not even liberals are buying what CNN is selling.

Continuing a trend that’s only getting more dismal for Chris Cuomo & Co., Nielsen ratings released Tuesday showed the “most trusted name in news” has lost almost 70 percent of its viewers in the past few months, according to the Daily Caller.

It’s the kind of drop that should alarm even the most committed progressive at Jeff Zucker’s network. And it isn’t hard to see why it’s happening.

During former President Donald Trump’s four years in office, CNN abandoned even the pretense of journalism, devoting itself entirely to becoming the mouthpiece of the anti-Trump left.

Then-CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta’s regular buffoonery basically personified the animus that animated the mainstream media’s approach to covering the Trump administration.

The stars of CNN’s evening programming — Chris Cuomo and Don Lemon — regularly engaged in self-aggrandizing attempts to smear the duly elected president of the United States.

Lemon would brand Trump a “racist” on the air, as though he were bravely speaking truth to power, rather than pandering to his largely liberal audience (the kind that probably get their real dose of news from “comedians” like  Stephen Colbert).

Cuomo, CNN’s resident tough guy, would call Trump witty names like “Dirty Donald” – while getting his own feelings hurt for being referred to as “Fredo.”

His latest disgraceful role in the scandals surrounding his brother, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, and his lame apology for it, hasn’t helped the network’s credibility, either.
