I had to post this here because it is so cool. CNN reputation is poor for accurate reporting, so finally, the public is catching on. https://www.forbes.com/
"...the network saw its prime time lineup drop 26% in April compared to the same month one year ago. CNN's total audience in prime time was well under a million viewers--767,000--while competitors MSNBC and Fox News finished the month far ahead: MSNBC in second place overall with 1.660 million total viewers, and Fox News leading all of cable with a total audience of 2.395 million.
April ranks as CNN's lowest-rated month among total viewers in nearly four years, since October 2015. CNN's Cuomo Primetime, which has been the network's highest-rated hour, drew a total audience of 917,000 viewers in April, the show's worst-ever performance."
Yes. Fox is the only major cable news network to cater to the far right. So it has a fairly large audience among the the three cable networks.
Fortunately, a lot more well-informed Americans get their news from other sources that follow journalism standards such as ABC News, Washington Post, etc.
David Muir by himself is getting more than 9 million viewers

I think this is a fairly clear image. They are almost all biased. Fox news is not much worse than MSNBC and the Huffington Post, none of which should be trusted.
I try to get my news from Reuters, https://www.reuters.com/ It is written pretty dryly, maybe not as much so as the AP stuff, but at least it is fairly accurate.
Reuters is good that's for sure. Nice chart.
Good points. I get my news from newspaper websites, which often use Reuters. They have higher standards than any TV news, especially the cable news networks.
CNN has an accuracy problem only with Trump supporters.
Intelligence and cable news ratings don't always go hand in hand.
Then again, Rachel Maddow on MSNBC outperformed Sean Hannity in April. In that case, intelligence is the winner.
The Fox News total audience is still rather small. It pales in comparison to the major network news shows (ABC, NBC and CBS) and major national newspapers.
By the way, your comment belongs in the topical forums and not here.
There is hope for America, I believe people are turning away from the MSM garbage news channels.
Same for the NYTimes, WPost, all opinions, all biased, none of it worth the time to read or watch.
The fabricated and phony 'news' needs to be viewed as just that, take it with a grain of salt, and don't let it impact you in any significant way.
CNN's reputation for not being accurate and slanting the news for their advertisers benefit started way before the coined terms like "Trump supporters."
Replace "Trump supporters" with "right wingers". Same difference.
Fox News lovers who think Fox isn't slanted is like a liberal Democrat claiming that Bernie Sanders isn't a liberal.
Fox has "degenerated from providing a legitimate and much-needed outlet for conservative voices to a mere propaganda machine for a destructive and ethically ruinous administration." - Ralph Peters, former Fox News military analyst
What's wrong with "Trump supporters?" I don't think that's a phrase that had to be coined. It's just people who support Trump. Just like Hillary supporters or Bernie Supporters or Obama supporters. If you support someone, why would you think calling you their supporter is pejorative?
You are taking the phrase out of context. The sentence said, "CNN has an accuracy problem only with Trump supporters."
Trump supporters like the OP think Fox is accurate and CNN is not. There is no pejorative in my comment about Trump supporters in general. Only with regard to their bias about Fox versus CNN.
Yes, indeedy, they did do that, and their ratings have slowly dropped over time.
I reported this post. It shouldn't be in Hubpages Community, should be in one of topics, maybe Politics and Social Issues.
Actually, "nationalist" junk like this topic shouldn't be on Hubpages period because CNN, MSNBC, BBC, CSPAN, Reuters are ALL Fine networks which report the news accurately with few human mistakes,, unlike Fox Fake Channel which is simply a ridiculously radical white house propaganda clown show which is trying to protect an illegitimate president barreling straight toward his own political demise:
MAJOR Social Media Sites are now BANNING Bozo Trump style insane nationalist garbage, I hope Hubpages follows suit before for their own sake before it's too late because this place is just chock full of right wingers spewing anti-American nonsense:
All networks have slanted and biased segments. Don Lemon, Rachel Madow and Hannity come to mind. CNN is one of the worst, overall. I'm not surprised they are falling behind in number of viewers.
Fox news is the only legitimate news source at present. Fox didn't perpetuate a two year Russian collusion hoax. Fox didn't spread the hatred of the Covington Catholic kids racist hoax, and Fox didn't spread the Jussie Homo hoax.
So Fox is clearly the only of the major networks not in the business of complete and total fake news.
CNN is of the same value as what you flush down the toilet. Ditto for MSNBC.
Though not everyone could put it into words, more Americans are waking up to the fact that reporting opinion as news makes them untrustworthy. Disingenuous and arrogant, they think Americans will be fooled by a few feel good stories that lean far left and by saying thanks for joining us tonight. The media is in trouble and may never recover from it. If they only continue biased reporting of events and trying to force everyone to listen to a leftist perspective in their so-called reporting, then it's no loss to see them wither away. Calling their programming balanced is laughable, but that they fool some of the people some of the time is not.
When a story "breaks", or becomes news, I find that I can only understand what's going on after a few days of listening to, watching, and reading various sources and commentators. Eventually, I nail it down.
