In yet another blow to the ailing news site, CNN’s figures are looking worse than ever. Many are calling this he “Trump Effect” after what seems like months of denigrating the new President, viewers are getting sick of media bias and Fake News attacks.
And CNN is not the only news agency in trouble. As reported in the Daily Caller:
“…according to findings from YouGov. Both MSNBC and CNN have fallen far behind Fox News in recent months.
Respondents were asked, “If you’ve heard anything about the brand in the last two weeks, through advertising, news or word of mouth, was it positive or negative?”
Of the three cable networks, only Fox News scored a neutral brand perception. Both CNN and MSNBC were well in the negatives.”
Low points in the news network’s viewing tends to follow the trend of “Trump-bashing”. When they run a negative story about Trump or his administration, people simply turn off.
Trump has consistently singled out CNN for criticism, calling the network “fake news” — one of Trump’s favorite labels for hostile news outlets.
