Nolte: Ratings Dud CNN Fails to Place in Top 20 Shows of Q1 2018

Post by 1989TransAm » Wed Apr 04, 2018 11:54 pm

CNN is slowly sinking into the abyss with their fake news. :mrgreen:

"With the first quarter of 2018 behind us, the ratings show that CNN is already having a humiliating year. Not a single CNN program cracked the top 20 in cable news, and only two CNN programs managed to squeak out a million average total viewers."

I guess this is what happens when the only thing you choose to broadcast is bullshit! =D>

Popularity with the masses and quality are not always related, others may not agree it appears.

Example, most under the age of 8 believe sugar is a basic food group I hear.

Of course he is because he's a f...ing M0R0N just like the other 3 or 4 that post useless bullshit here ad nauseam!! Never mind that even most liberals also realize what CNN has been doing now for the past few years!!

And BTW, if you check out his profile you'll notice that he, just like fizzledome didn't join here until September of 2016 and also like fizzledome the majority of his posts are in this political section. What that says to me is, he's just another piece of shit Soros paid troll here only to try to bring down President Trump for his master!

Don't fret, I have no intention of being included in yours or for that matter anybody else's sophomoric clique, no matter how many, or how low you go on your insults. Something about names and words comes to mind. :lol:

You do understand their are others reading this stuff, and getting people to show their true colors is informative and long lasting, often accomplished strangely by those who chose to take the high road if possible.

BTW, I've never met the person with enough money to buy off my principles, try another line. [-X

It has become apparent to many viewers that if CNN did not spend all their time insulting Trump, they would have no audience at all. They owe Trump a lot.

This may sound like a cop out, I don't trust any single source, none. I do give more credence when things line up from different sources, but as discovered recently, those with an agenda are getting more clever trying to sway the masses with partial cherry picked facts. More to the point, CNN does not deserve the negative they often receive.

But they all do it, some worse then others, best indicator for me, is when they talk about everything, except the bush, ie beating around the bush, i want to know then, about the bush, or what they are avoiding.

This strategy of mine, means I am best served by taking in everyone's opinion, and weighing them in many regards, getting past the repeated IMO mindless insults here, often makes that a task.
I think you asked I believe a sincere question, and you got a sincere answer.

You sound very much like the philosopher, Mortimer Adler. He called the reliance upon several disparate sources "syntopic reading".
The sources must have opposing yet thoughtful viewpoints. In very simple terms: "There are at least two sides to every story."

It is amazing to me to see how many people will not listen to any information that does not directly support their narrative.

Mere coincidence, I'm just a regular guy who who is not shy about sharing my opinions.
