Fantastic news. The American people are sending a strong message to CNN: the message is that trash programming and fake news will not generate strong ratings. Jeff Zucker should be ashamed of himself. He has turned the once iconic network into a disgraceful laughing stock. Furthermore, the network’s coverage of the Coronavirus has been absolutely shameful and appalling. Even for CNN. What will it take for Warner Media to show Zucker the door?
Despite the impeachment of a president and the coronavirus pandemic, the cable channel America used to automatically turn to in times of crisis could not do any better than number 22.
CNN: Briefings from the President of the United States, Dr. Fauci, Dr. Birx and our military leaders are not important enough for us to show our viewers.

Cable news has been cutting away from @realDonaldTrump’s coronavirus briefings & threatening not to air them at all.
Over 300K people have signed a petition demanding that the #FakeNews keep people informed by carrying the briefings.

It is so obviously WRONG that CNN is not carrying @realDonaldTrump's coronavirus task force briefings in full!
Because his poll #s are SOARING, CNN must hide the President from the American people pursuant to their political end as they keep info from people during a pandemic!

CNN Fails to Place One Show in Top 20 During Q1 of 2020
By Breitbart, April 2, 2020:
Far-left CNN failed to place even one show in the top 20 during the first quarter of this year.
Yes, you read that correctly… Despite the impeachment of a president and the coronavirus pandemic, the cable channel America used to automatically turn to in times of crisis could not do any better than number 22.
Fox News placed eight shows in the top ten and 14 in the top 20. The openly left-wing MSNBC filled those other slots.
CNNLOL finally arrives way behind its cable news competitors, at number 22, with Jake Tapper’s basement-rated The Lead, which still only managed to attract 1.387 million viewers. And Tapper probably only did that well because some of President Trump’s popular daily briefings aired during his otherwise anemic timeslot.
Sean Hannity topped everyone during the quarter with an average of 4.22 million viewers, which more than triples CNN’s top show.
In fact, the only Fox program CNN was able to beat was Fox and Friends First, which broadcasts before dawn and still managed to come in 40th with 721,000 average viewers. The pre-dawn Fox and Friends First humiliated CNNLOL’s disastrous morning show, New Day, which was only able to attract 580,000 average viewers.
Overall, Fox News had its biggest viewing quarter in the network’s history, averaging 3.4 million primetime viewers and 1.9 million total-day viewers.
CNNLOL was only able to average 1.43 million primetime viewers, with MSNBC coming in at 1.93 million.
Fox News beat both combined.
During primetime, CNNLOL managed to lose to ESPN (1.43 million compared to 1.5 million), even though sports events have been dead for weeks due to coronavirus cancellations.
If you want to fully grasp just how bad CNNLOL’s ratings are these days, this quarter’s hilariously awful primetime numbers represent a 35 percent increase over the first quarter of 2019.
