During the Trump presidency, far-left networks like CNN, MSNBC, etc., made a full-time job out of routinely trashing the 45th president and his administration. These networks didn’t even pretend to be objective; CNN, MSNBC, and others repeatedly mocked Trump voters and intentionally misreported on the Trump administration.
For two months now, a new administration has been in power. CNN and other media outlets rejoiced when Biden was sworn into office; however, it appears that they failed to consider the long game and what a power shift would mean for their own networks.
Since Trump left office, ratings for CNN have drastically declined. Apparently, trashing the 45th president was very profitable for CNN; although between the new president and other current events, more and more Americans just don’t care to tune into CNN anymore, as Breitbart News confirms.
Poor CNN Ratings Across the Board
Since January 2021, roughly 50% of CNN’s viewers in critical metrics have fallen off. This is no coincidence, nor is the downfall of Cuomo Prime Time, a CNN show hosted by Chris Cuomo, brother to New York Governor Andrew Cuomo.
Over the course of this year, Cuomo’s viewers have drastically from the 1.8 million through 2.2 million averages it maintained in 2020. Amid the scandals surrounding the New York Democrat governor (from sexual harassment allegations to reports that he concealed COVID-19 deaths in nursing homes), Chris Cuomo was forced to come out and state that he couldn’t cover his brother’s scandals for apparent reasons.
I am on vacay. Happy to take a trip and do a follow-up intv with this waste product. You are everything that we value as a parent and as a pro. Period. Take it from the old dog, hate is hollow, like the soul it emanates from. https://t.co/QHWnCiR8ZB

From this point forward, ratings for Cuomo Prime Time have drastically fallen. This compounds on top of already-falling views for CNN as a collective network. During this month alone, viewers for Cuomo Prime Time have ranged between just 323,000 and 1.2 million.
The Future of Mainstream Media Outlets
During the Trump years, mainstream media outlets largely alienated conservatives by repeatedly trashing the 45th president, his voters, and Republicans at large. The fall of CNN’s ratings and viewers is simply a natural consequence of the network’s current inability to ride Trump’s coattails.

In the months and years to come, mainstream media’s ratings may continue to drop. Conservative media alternatives like Newsmax, One American News Network (OANN), etc., are gradually picking up viewers while other outlets suffer declining ratings.
