The Associated Press reports the recent stretch of news regarding the coronavirus pandemic’s impact on the lives of the world’s citizens coupled with the racial upheaval triggered by George Floyd’s death has resulted in CNN garnering its biggest audience for any three-month period in the network’s 40-year history.
According to the Nielsen ratings, CNN’s weekday prime-time audience of 1.95 million was up 120% over the same period last year.
Fox News saw a 43% increase pulling in an average of 4.07 million viewers, while MSNBC’s audience of 2.47 million was up 13% from 2019.
Donald Trump, who rarely acknowledges actual facts and figures, routinely refers to CNN as “failing.”
Even the moderator for CNN’s Twitter account for Public Relations finds the Donald to be exhausting in his perpetual lies.
