Just one month after CNN bragged about the launching of CNN+, their new streaming service, they announced as “one of the most significant developments in the history of CNN,” they will be shutting it down on April 30.
They has less than 10,000 people using CNN+ on a daily basis.
Chris Licht, CEO of CNN Global said CNN+ workers will “continue to be paid and receive benefits for the next 90 days to explore opportunities at CNN, CNN Digital and elsewhere in the Warner Bros. Discovery family. At the end of that period, any departing CNN+ employee will receive a minimum of six-month severance (depending on length of service at CNN).”
Andrew Morse, who led the streaming service, is reportedly leaving the company.
2022 did not start out so well for CNN as they learned their 4th quarter primetime viewership dropped by an enormous 73% (from quarter 4 of 2020) to only 642,000 viewers on average.
2021 Q4 PRIMETIME: TOTAL VIEWERS/25-54 AGE DEMO VIEWERS
- Fox News: 2.366 million / 366,000
- MSNBC: 1.163 million / 138,000
- CNN: 642,000 / 138,000
The network continues to drown in their own fake news reporting and on-air personalities scandals.
In 2018, their ratings troubles became noticeably obvious as CNN constantly pushed the bogus narrative of collusion between Russians and the Trump campaign, which panned out to be totally false.
During Trump’s presidency, CNN’s ratings continued to plummet as Americans’ trust in the network dissolved.
More recently, their extremely leftist and biased host Don Lemon was caught providing strategy advice to disgraced actor Jussie Smollett.
Left-wing Chris Cuomo, who regularly bashed Trump supporters and conservatives, was unethically using network news sources and caught lying about it as he advised his brother, then New York Governor Andrew Cuomo. The CNN host was terminated.
CNN, like many mainstream media outlets, is universally known as a biased fake news network that has been frequently called out by America’s 45th President, Donald J. Trump.
