    CNN Ratings Drop To Three-Year Low Amid Constant Impeachment Coverage
    It has been over two months since House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced the impeachment inquiry of President Trump, and CNN has been running non-stop coverage of all the latest impeachment developments. In retrospect, that may not have been the best idea: with round the clock coverage, viewership of the rabidly partisan, far-left media outlet has actually tumbled to three-year lows, reported Nielsen Media Research.

    Nielsen reported that CNN recorded its lowest prime time ratings in nearly three years during the week of November 25. Even more embarrassing for Jerry Zucker, Fox News recorded higher ratings than MSNBC and CNN combined.

    Fox News recorded 2.2 million viewers in the primetime hours of 9-11 p.m. ET from Nov. 25 through Dec. 1; MSNBC saw around 1.3 million, while CNN averaged about 643,000 viewers over the same period. It was CNN’s worst performance in nearly three years and the liberal network’s worst turnout among the key demographic of adults age 25-54 in over five years.

    Primetime Viewers

    Fox News: 2.2 million
    MSNBC: 1.3 million
    CNN: 643,000
    Fox News has dominated the cable news arena for the 47th consecutive week, averaging a little over 1.3 million viewers.

    Total Day Viewers

    Fox News: 1.33 million
    MSNBC: 781,000
    CNN: 539,000

    As CNN plumbed historic lows, its conservative foil continued to enjoy strong viewership, as episodes of “Hannity,” “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” “The Ingraham Angle,” “The Story with Martha MacCallum” and “Special Report” with Bret Baier accounted for 15 of the 30 most-watched telecasts across all of cable during the holiday weekend.

    Is CNN’s Trump derangement syndrome starting to bore most Americans, even liberals? Consider that the network’s special town hall event with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on the day she announced that articles of impeachment against President Trump were being drafted only averaged 1.6 million viewers and 410,000 in the demo on Thursday night, well behind both Fox News and MSNBC in both categories.

    The American people, at least those who still watch cable TV, are increasingly ditching “objective”, “imparial” mainstream media outlets and either tuning out or moving to conservative outlets, in a time when House Democrats have been focused on just one thing: not how to govern the nation, but merely focusing all their energy on impeaching the president. It appears, however, that the American people are tired of this farce and are desperate to move on. So far very few democrats have gotten the memo.

    Don’t forget about other publications as well.

    It is well known that some on TB just want to dismiss outlets like Brieghtbart and Gateway Pundit, but overall “hit” records are showing that more and more are turning to them to actually get a more accurate picture. While places like WaPo and NYTimes are constantly getting caught in “inaccuracies” and having to retract stories .

    Media Give a Pass to Schiff Investigating a Reporter’s Phone Logs

    What if reporter John Solomon were named….Jake Tapper? Or Wolf Blitzer? Or Maggie Haberman? Or Dana Milbank?

    This being a random group of names of journalists from CNN, The New York Times and The Washington Post.

    Now pick one of those names (and there is a long list of potential other names that could be used) and substitute it for this mention of John Solomon in a recent Wall Street Journal editorial that reported this, bold print for emphasis supplied:

    “Adam Schiff’s 300-page House Intelligence impeachment report doesn’t include much new about Mr. Trump’s Ukrainian interventions. But it does disclose details of telephone calls between ranking Intelligence Republican Devin Nunes, Trump attorneys Rudy Giuliani and Jay Sekulow, reporter John Solomon, former Giuliani associate Lev Parnas, the White House, and others. The details are “metadata” about the numbers and length of the calls, not the content.”

    If, instead of “reporter John Solomon” this read “reporters Jake Tapper, Wolf Blitzer, Maggie Haberman and Dana Milbank” — and the congressman who obtained and published their phone records was named Devin Nunes instead of Adam Schiff?

    We all know the answer. There would be un-shirted hell to pay, with every liberal media outlet in existence screaming bloody murder about government surveillance of journalists and an assault on the free press. Not to mention a battalion of First Amendment lawyers would be revving up to sue Nunes.

    But in fact, when just this attack on a journalist’s privacy has taken place - and the journalist in question is John Solomon - the liberal media yawns, falling strangely quieter than a platoon of church mice.

    As Wall Street Journal columnist Kimberley Strassel has made abundantly clear, the Schiff investigation of Solomon’s phone records (not to mention those of colleague Nunes and private citizens and presidential lawyers Giuliani and Sekulow) is indeed “a stunning abuse of congressional power.”

    Ms. Strassel notes:

    “Fanatics can justify any action, and House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff this week demonstrated where that mindset leads. In his rush to paint Donald Trump as a lawbreaker, Mr. Schiff has himself trampled law and responsibility.
