For months now, CNN has experienced a significant drop in ratings, and the left-leaning news network is projected to hit an unprecedented low. It comes as no shock, considering the network has been employing a tactic of attacking former President Donald J. Trump for several years, which has now become ineffective. Don Lemon, the former morning show host, made misogynistic remarks, which was the tipping point for numerous viewers, leading to his dismissal from the network.
CNN is anticipated to record their lowest viewership among the 25-to-54 age group since June 2014, by the conclusion of February. This period corresponds to the commencement of Donald Trump’s Presidential campaign. The New York Post disclosed that CNN’s latest morning show, hosted by Lemon, Harlow, and Collins, is registering 16 percent less viewership than the previous show, which was canceled due to inadequate ratings.

As per The Post Millennial, CNN experienced a five percent surge in ratings following the removal of Don Lemon from his morning show hosting duties, indicating a significant viewer aversion to the program. Fox News is also highlighting CNN’s dwindling viewership, citing Don Lemon’s falling ratings as just one of the network’s multiple issues. Anderson Cooper 360, The Lead with Jake Tapper, and Wolf Blitzer’s Situation Room are projected to receive their lowest audience numbers among the vital demographic since June 2014. Meanwhile, Inside Politics is expected to have the least-watched month since August 2005.
It is clear that CNN’s liberal bias and reliance on attacking former President Donald J. Trump have led to their historic low ratings. The network’s decision to keep Don Lemon on their morning show despite his offensive comments towards women was the final nail in the coffin for many viewers. It is no surprise that conservative news outlets such as Fox News are thriving while liberal networks such as CNN are struggling. This is a clear example of how conservative values are preferred by many Americans, and it is a trend that will likely continue in the future.
