(BLP) – Fox News is dominating the mainstream news again according to new rating figures released on Wednesday. As expected, CNN tanked.
According to a report from Mediaite, Fox News brought in nearly five times the number of viewers compared to CNN, averaging 2.57 million viewers across prime time and 517,000 respectfully.
“‘Anderson Cooper 360,’ which was guest hosted by John Berman, led CNN on Wednesday with 637,000 total viewers at 8 p.m.,” the report outlined.
“Tucker Carlson led the time slot with 3.14 million total viewers, while Chris Hayes landed in second place with 1.21 million total viewers,” it continued.
Late-night TV powerhouse, Greg Gutfield, is also to thank for Fox News’ stellar ratings.
His show, “Gutfield!,” was created and positioned to compete against nightly comedy like “The Daily Show” and “The Colbert Report” during the 11 pm timeslot. Offering Americans an alternative for news paired with a more playful twist instead of regurgitated woke talking points from pundits like Trevor Noah, Jimmy Kimmel, and Stephen Colbert.

MSNBC was more popular than CNN too according to Mediaite’s report, with the network’s average of 1.18 million total prime time viewers – which is more than double.
Perhaps the most notable example of CNN’s failure to appeal to its declining audience was the disastrous launch of CNN+, the network’s over-hyped streaming service. The venture was so bad and ill-received, that it was essentially dead on arrival and ultimately scrapped in a matter of weeks.
This was just one instance of CNN’s complete and utter failure. Not to mention a complete lack of awareness.
The network has been in a tailspin for years, and there’s no sign that things are going to get any better anytime soon. CNN is nothing more than a propaganda outlet for left-wing Democrats at this point, as they continue to air stories on a routine basis that aren’t reflective of the actual problems facing the nation today.
For instance, Tucker Carlson just blasted mainstream news outlets like CNN for focusing on the “show trial” of House Speaker Pelosi’s Jan. 6 select committee during primetime news hours. Instead of using that valuable air time to talk about the much larger issues on display in the country, like high gas prices, an increase in drug overdoses, the economy careening towards a recession, and the US being on the brink of a nuclear war.
According to Carlson, outlets like CNN have no interest in actual journalism or reporting the news. All they care about is pushing their liberal agenda and controlling the narratives the American people are supposed to willfully accept as truth.
As these new ratings indicate, the mainstream media is in complete disarray. Fox News is dominating while CNN and MSNBC are falling further and further behind.
Obviously, the right-leaning network is doing something right.
