I have noticed when watching television over the years that there are certain waves and trends that take place over certain periods of time.
For example, I remember when the Chicago Bulls were beating everyone in sight in the 1990s that everyone I knew was watching basketball. The second Jordan retired for the second time those people left and never came back. That’s people watching that like what they are watching.
There are also people that hate-watch things. When it came to liberals, they would watch crap like CNN just so they could have their ignorant views about Donald Trump confirmed for them. Now that Donald Trump has been forced from office, they don’t have as many chances to do that hate-watching. They have to find somewhere else to get their fix. This means that CNN is losing hard and fast.
Since President Trump left office in January, CNN host Brian Stelter has lost nearly 1 million views, according to a new report.
Stelter’s tanking viewership surface Thursday afternoon after he contacted Newsmax on Wedneday evening about “Newsmax’s ratings declines for my CNN newsletter.”
Stelter contacted Newsmax at 9 p.m. on Wednesday night and said he would give them just one hour to respond, meaning a 10 p.m. deadline.
Without Newsmax’s response, CNN’s Stelter email newsletter, headlined “Newsmax’s rise and fall,” noted that “Newsmax TV gained a lot of attention last fall when disaffected Fox News fans flocked to the channel en masse. … Newsmax’s Nielsen ratings are way off the post-election highs that I wrote about three and four months ago.”
Stelter chalked up his “Newsmax is falling” story to his theory that “Newsmax is no longer getting a pro-Trump Big Lie ratings boost. Biden is a comparatively tame story.”

Newsmax sent Stelter the following response: “Only CNN would do a story on Newsmax’s drop in ratings when its own Nielsen total day impressions fell by 45% last week compared to the week after the election, and Brian Stelter’s own ‘Reliable Sources’ show fell by 44% over the same period with, more recently, his show having lost nearly 1 million viewers since January of this year.”
