Cornell Law School professor and media critic William A. Jacobson discussed the fall in ratings of CNN and MSNBC.
Jacbson told Fox News “CNN and MSNBC were one-trick ponies, and that trick was bashing Trump.”
“Now that Trump no longer is president, they have tried to keep up the mania, but it’s hard. The audience has disappeared because it never was loyal to CNN and MSNBC hosts, it was loyal to Trump hatred,” he continued. “It’s not hard to imagine executives at CNN and MSNBC saying nightly prayers that Trump runs for president in 2024.”
Meanwhile Fox News contributor Joe Concha says of CNN and MSNBC “Q3 will be even worse in looking at the trends for both networks, if that’s possible. The numbers are where they are because of two things: Their myopic ratings hook, Donald Trump, isn’t around anymore. But more importantly, these networks have a serious credibility problem.”
