CNN viewership in the crapper.August 6, 2021
Veteran journalist Ted Koppel said “CNN’s ratings would be in the toilet without Donald Trump” in a 2018 interview, words that appear prescient as the network’s numbers continue to fall without its nemesis in office.

CNN’s ratings are almost as bad as its journalistic integrity, according to the latest Nielsen data.
Things haven’t been going well for the network, particularly without Donald Trump in the White House, and it has now gone an entire week without reaching 1 million viewers.
CNN’s viewership has declined a staggering 73 percent since January. Without constantly dumping on Trump, CNN just doesn’t have a purpose that inspires ratings. Instead, they’ve been trying to compensate for Trump not being in office by endlessly covering the partisan House select committee hearing on the Capitol riot– without much success.
At this rate, CNN might actually root for Donald Trump in 2024.
