      In the first quarter of this year, Fox News was down 1 percent in total prime time viewers and down 3 percent in total day viewers vs. its Q1 2018 ratings.

      In the age 25-54 category (highest appeal for advertisers), Fox was down 15 percent in the prime time demo and down 16 percent in the total day demo vs. Q1 of last year.

      It's still doing great with aging white people.

        Cool, I used to write for AdWeek, when they wrote about more pleasant topics, like what was popular on social media.

    Randy,
    Discrediting sources doesn't work when rankings continue to dive.

    According to Fox?

    Why have so many companies withdrawn their ads from Fox, Kenna?

    It's like a bunch of kids. CNN and the rank and file defenders of CNN need to stop deflecting and blaming others for their demise.

      I haven't blamed anyone that I know of, LTL. CNN is only one of many factual news sources. Of course, Fox News is really just entertainment for the right and not much for factual reporting. They seem to have a dearth of actual journalists working there and rely on opinion people instead.

        I don't know. Maybe.  I don't watch Fox news.  I think,  a lot of times people watch a pundit and call it news.  That's just opinion spun around the news.  Actual news is,  unfortunately, giving way to the pundits in most cases. I see Acosta as more of a pundit than a journalist which is,  in my opinion,  CNN's major problem.  Too many pundits masquarading as journalists.

    My opinion of CNN TV has gone down in recent months, not because they are any less accurate than other news sources, but because they spend too much time on partisan bickering. I hardly watch them anymore.

      I try to watch many different sources, even Fox to see how they're spinning the news.

          Do you--like Trump--think all of CNN is fake news?

        That's been my MO for quite a while - look at and listen to various sources to find out what on earth is happening.

          Yes.  What on earth is happening!?

    I agree. Just report the news.

      ALL the news.  Not just the part that supports your political leanings and NEVER just one side of the whole thing.

      The truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.

        Exactly!

      Does that also apply to Fox News?

      Conservatives "are tightly clustered around a single news source, far more than any other group in the survey, with 47% citing Fox News as their main source for news about government and politics".

      Liberals "are less unified in their media loyalty; they rely on a greater range of news outlets."

      https://www.journalism.org/2014/10/21/p … ia-habits/

      In other words, a decline in ratings for CNN doesn't mean much to anyone except for Trump and Fox News followers.

        Isn't that amazing they report it to the world and only two types of people are interested in it besides you, of course.

          Sorry, your comment is baffling.

          What is your answer to my question?

            She ignored mine as well. Is she another from the right who like to opine but ignore queries about their opinions? We'll soon find out...  tongue
