CNN is going downhill. Real communists watch MSNBC. Wussy commies watch CNN. So they have a small audience because Biden and his pals are real commies. Everybody else is watching Fox News.
The new boss at CNN wants to make it a news station again, not just a propaganda voice. That means that certain people like Don Lemon and Brian Stelter might have to go. That might help some. But I bet it goes deeper than that. They’re gonna have to really clean house or when the midterms come up they’ll be a Democrat shill again and when 2024 comes they will only go after President Trump. If they want to get better ratings they won’t do that. Let’s see what they do. Joe Concha has some thoughts.
The January 6 committee ratings were so bad, you'd think it had aired exclusively on CNN+.

Concha: Even CNN has run out of ways to defend Joe Biden, but to defend the president at this point would be like defending a football team down 35-0 early in the second quarter.
The biggest issue facing the nation by a country mile, inflation, is at its highest since E.T. was in theaters. Gas prices are at an all-time high. It cost me $80 to fill up my little 16-year-old car today.
Skyrocketing, brazen crime forcing mass exoduses out of cities from New York to Los Angeles. And a border that is anything but secure, with fentanyl coming into this country and killing a record number of Americans, many of them younger adults. So there clearly isn’t enough red lipstick for this pig.
And now it is being leaked out of CNN that new president Chris Licht wants the network to return to the days when real journalists like Bernard Shaw were the face of the brand.
They may have been left-of-center then, but it wasn’t blatant to the point like we saw during the Jeff Zucker-era, when the network might as well have been called AOCNN.
So these folks who are suddenly semi-tough on Team Biden are doing this partly because you can’t defend the indefensible… and for their own self-preservation with a new boss in town.
At least until Donald Trump declares he’s running for president again, which many close to him believe he will. You don’t hold rally after rally since Biden became president just for the hell of it, after all. Either way, things have to change fast.
CNN’s highest-rated show usually finishes 35th or in the cable news race. Reruns of Gunsmoke, a Western show that debuted in 1952, easily beat CNN in primetime. There’s nowhere to go but up.

CNN needs the credibility it once had back, that’s for certain, and the way to do that is to go back towards the center. The question now is: Can it do that with the current crop of talent it has? Mostly, no.
