Fox News Channel is top basic cable network in April; CNN ratings plummet

Fox News Channel dominated basic cable for the month of April, beating news, sports, and entertainment networks in total day and primetime viewers, while rival news channel CNN continued to shed its audience. According to Nielsen Media Research, FNC garnered 2.4 million viewers in primetime and finished first among all basic cable stations for the third month in a row, and 1.4 million viewers in total day to top basic cable for the 34th consecutive month. For the 208th month in a row, FNC also beat left-leaning CNN and MSNBC across both categories, while CNN marked its lowest-rated month in total day viewers since October 2015, and since August 2015 in the key demographic of viewers age 25-54. “Hannity” finished the month of April as the highest-rated cable news program in total viewers while “Tucker Carlson Tonight” ranked number two, both outpacing MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow in key categories. Both “Tucker Carlson Tonight” (8 p.m.) and “Hannity” (9 p.m.) also beat the NBA Playoffs airing on ESPN and TNT and wrestling’s “Monday Night Raw” airing on USA Network in total viewers. Additionally, FNC’s regularly scheduled programming beat out CNN’s five-hour town hall event on April 22, bringing in 2.3 million viewers and 380,000 in the 25-54 age demo while CNN came in last in total viewers with 1.2 million and 371,00 in the demo for the night. FNC averaged 2.4 million in primetime, beating CNN’s 767,000 and MSNBC’s 1,660,000 total viewers. For the 25-54 demo, FNC brought in 389,000, topping CNN’s 198,000 and MSNBC’s 255,000.

After the Mueller report finally came out, many Americans who trusted MSNBC and CNN, realized they had been lied to for 2 years…and are voting with their remote.  MSNBC is nothing more than an organ of the DNC, and Democrat politicians.  And, CNN is utterly worthless.  It’s no wonder that Fox News, which has but a fraction of the market share of CNN, is absolutely pummeling them in the ratings.  This is only news to the dominantly liberal mainstream media and those who have trusted their bs these last couple of years.

CNN Poll: 71 Percent of Americans Say Economy Doing Well; Majority Credits Donald Trump

A CNN poll released Monday shows an overwhelming majority of Americans believe the economy is doing well during President’s Donald Trump’s presidency. Seventy-one percent of Americans now believe that the economy is in good shape, according to the poll. Only 27 percent rated the economic conditions as poor. CNN reports that the number is the highest positive number since February 2001 and the best of Trump’s presidency. The poll shows that 51 percent of Americans give Trump positive ratings for his handling of the economy, while 42 percent disapprove. The CNN poll shows that Trump’s overall approval rating is at 42 percent, the highest recorded in the poll since August of 2018. Fifty-one percent disapprove. Eight percent had no opinion. The CNN Poll was conducted by SSRS March 14 through 17 from a random national sample of 1,003 adults with a plus or minus 3.8 percentage points. In an exclusive interview with Breitbart News last week, President Trump cited the economy as his biggest accomplishment so far in his presidency. “Look at jobs. Best jobs record in 60 years. Best individual records for Asians, for African-Americans, for Hispanics ever,” he said. Trump indicated that he looked forward to running for re-election in 2020. “We’ve done a good job,” he said. “So, in theory, it’s easier because I can say, ‘Look what I’ve done,’ as opposed to the first time where I said, ‘I can do this.’”

Good point!  Kinda hard to argue with that!      🙂

Trump scolds CNN’s Jim Acosta, as angel moms confront reporter in Rose Garden: ‘You have an agenda’

President Trump scolded CNN’s Jim Acosta on Friday during the president’s Rose Garden announcement that he is declaring a national emergency on the southern border, telling the reporter he has “an agenda” — before angel moms in attendance confronted the chief CNN White House correspondent. The clash came as Acosta challenged Trump over what he described as a “disconnect” concerning his description of illegal immigration. “You are presenting information about what’s happening at the border, calling it an invasion, talking about women with duct tape over their mouths and so on, and yet there is a lot of reporting out there, a lot of crime data out there … that shows border crossings at a near record low,” Acosta said. Trump fired back, “That’s because of us,” as the CNN reporter attempted to talk over the president. “Excuse me,” Trump intervened. “It’s still massive numbers of crossings.” Acosta – who has emerged as a hero among progressives for attacking Trump and members of his administration when they’re available to the press – then said stats show “undocumented immigrants committing crime at lower levels than native-born Americans.” Trump rebuked Acosta by asking, “You don’t really believe that stats, do you?” As Acosta tried to keep talking, Trump repeated himself. “Do you really believe that stat? Take a look at our federal prisons,” Trump said as he gestured Acosta to hurry up with his longwinded question. “What do you say to critics who say that you are creating a national emergency? That you’re concocting a national emergency here to get your wall,” Acosta said. Trump pointed to angel moms in attendance, asking them for their thoughts. “You think I’m creating something? Ask these incredible women who lost their daughters and their sons,” Trump said. “OK, Because your question is a very political question because you have an agenda. You’re CNN. You’re fake news.” Trump told Acosta the statistics he provided were “wrong” and told him to take a look at the federal prison population for proof. “See how many of them,percentage-wise, are illegal aliens,” Trump said. “Just see, go ahead and see. It’s a fake question.” Acosta was subsequently confronted by the angel moms in attendance, after the press conference. As angel moms confronted the CNN reporter, he invited them to appear on the network in the background of a live shot. “There is no attempt whatsoever to diminish what they’ve gone through, or take away what they’ve gone through, but as you heard in that question that I had with the president … it was really about the facts and the data,” Acosta said on CNN following his exchange with Trump. “Some of these folks came up to me right after this press conference … they’re holding up these pictures of loved ones who lost their lives.” An angel mom then discussed that a previously deported illegal alien murdered her son. “President Trump is completely correct on this issue, we need to protect this country,” the angel mom told Acosta.

Take that Jim!!  lol   Jim Acosta is SUCH a nauseating, self-righteous, liberal agenda pushing tool..  Kudos to these “Angel Moms” for putting Jim in his place.  Excellent!!    🙂

CNN legal analyst Areva Martin accuses David Webb of ‘white privilege’ before learning he’s black

It was a rough day for author and CNN legal analyst Areva Martin on Tuesday. Martin accused Sirius XM radio and Fox Nation host David Webb of “white privilege” during a segment on a radio program before he broke the news. “Areva, I hate to break it to you, but you should’ve been better prepped. I’m black,” Webb said. The embarrassing moment occurred during a discussion about experience being more important than race when determining whether or not someone is qualified for a particular job. “I’ve chosen to cross different parts of the media world, done the work so that I’m qualified to be in each one. I never considered my color the issue, I considered my qualifications the issue,” Webb said. “That’s a whole, another long conversation about white privilege, the things that you have the privilege of doing, that people of color don’t have the privilege of,” said Martin – who also hosts CBS’ “Face the Truth.” A dumbfounded Webb asked, “How do I have the privilege of white privilege?” Martin responded, “David, by virtue of being a white male you have white privilege.” The Fox Nation host then explained that he was actually black. “I stand corrected,” Martin said. Webb scolded Martin for running with an “assumption” and she then blamed her team for providing inaccurate information. “That’s actually insulting,” Webb said. “It is and I apologize,” Martin replied. “I was given wrong information.” Martin’s spokesperson declined a request for comment.

We’ll sorta, kinda..gice Areva the benefit of the doubt here for having “wrong info.”  And, she DID apologize.  Fair enough.  But, she should probably fire the staffer(s) who provided the “wrong info.”  That being said..  This illustrates the pitfalls of constantly playing the race card; something that CNN, MSNBC, and the rest of the dominantly liberal mainstream media do on a daily basis.  At some point it’s gonna backfire.  Such was the case here.  The ASSumption by the folks at CNN was that their conservative guest from Fox Nation MUST be a white male.  So, they prepped for the show based on that ASSumption because it fit their extreme liberal racial template.  DOH!!

San Diego-Based KUSI: CNN Disinvited Our Journalist Because We Reported Border Wall ‘Does Work’

KUSI News, a television news outlet based in San Diego, California, said Thursday that CNN invited — and subsequently rescinded the invitation — for it to provide a reporter to give “a local view of the debate surrounding the border wall and government shutdown.” The San Diego-based outfit speculated on CNN’s rationale for the decision: “We believe CNN declined a report from KUSI because we informed them that most Border Patrol Agents we have spoken to told us the barrier does in fact work. We have continuously been told by Border Patrol Agents that the barrier along the Southern border helps prevent illegal entries, drugs, and weapons from entering the United States, and the numbers prove it.” KUSI News shared a segment of its programming related to CNN’s editorial move.

CNN.. Typical FAKE NEWS!  They only want to air information which comports to their extreme liberal narrative.  They knowingly/actively censor, or ridicule, any dissenting view that conflicts with their liberal agenda.  We have documented time and again this pattern by CNN, here at The Daily Buzz.  It is total garbage.

Kellyanne Conway embarrasses CNN’s Jim Acosta during heated exchange: ‘You’re such a smarta–‘

Kellyanne Conway embarrassed CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta during a press gaggle on Tuesday, referring to him as a “smarta–” unliked by other reporters. Acosta asked Conway if she could promise that President Trump would tell the truth when addressing the nation on Tuesday night. “Yes, Jim,” Conway shot back, “Can you promise that you will? The whole truth and nothing but the truth, so help you God? Am I allowed to mention ‘God’ to you?” Acosta – who has emerged as a household name for interruptions when Trump and members of his administration are made available to the press – responded by telling Conway that he doesn’t have an “alternative facts” problem like she does. “Make sure that goes viral. This is why I’m one of the only people around here who gives you the time of day,” Conway said. “You’re such a smarta– most of the time and I know you want this to go viral.” Conway then told Acosta that “a lot of these people” don’t like him, while pointing to his peers. “Don’t you put it back in my face for all corrections your network needs to issue,” she continued, mocking CNN. “I was on your network 25 or 26 times in 2018. I’m one of the last people here who even bothered to go on, and the disrespect you show to me personally, I’ll look past it.” Acosta replied, “Ma’am.” “Don’t call me ma’am,” Conway responded. Last year Acosta was briefly banned from the White House after he engaged in a contentious back-and-forth with Trump during a Nov. 7 press conference. During the now-infamous moment, Acosta refused to pass the microphone to a female White House aide.

Good for Kellyanne!!  Jim is such an obnoxious, grandstanding, tool…

CNN ripped for segment on witches offended by Trump: ‘The derangement is real’

CNN faced ridicule on social media over the weekend after it aired a segment showcasing self-described witches who are offended by President Trump’s repeated use of the word “witch hunt.” “Witches of the world have a problem with President Trump. Here’s Jeanne Moos,” CNN host Kate Bolduan declared before cutting to a report by Ms. Moos on “OutFront.” In the segment, Ms. Moos interviewed two self-described witches who take offense to Mr. Trump’s characterization of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation as a “witch hunt.” “Really disgraceful. I mean, thousands of people were executed in Europe on suspicion of witchcraft,” said David Salisbury, author of “Witchcraft Activism: A Toolkit for Magical Resistance.” “Closer to home, there were the Salem witch trials,” added Ms. Moos. “Nineteen supposed witches were hanged.” Yates Garcia, a “practicing witch,” said Mr. Trump’s flippant use of the term shows his “ignorance.” “There’s a lot to be offended by Donald Trump,” she said. “And I think his use of the term ‘witch hunt’ is very low on the list of priorities for most witches, but nevertheless it does demonstrate his ignorance as usual.” The segment was mocked on social media by conservatives, including the president’s eldest son, Donald Trump Jr. “The Derangement is real folks.”

Indeed!  CNN again shows its true colors.  We all know how liberal it is as a network.  But, this silliness is even being ridiculed by many on the left.  The term “witch hunt” has been part of our American English lexicon for generations…and CNN knows it.  Had it been used by Obama or anyone else, it wouldn’t even be a story.  But, because Trump used/uses the phrase, its somehow news to CNN.  What a worthless network.  Fake news!
