Congratulations to CNN! You have worked hard to achieve your declining ratings with your strong left-wing bias, and pro-Obama views. I can only hope the decline accelerates. Keep up the good work!

They're #1 in viewership for news agencies, but that's pulling in around 1-2 million during primetime. That's less than 1% of the US population.
Really? Name the outlets CNN competes with? I suppose in a pinch you might call MSNBC a news outlet, but what other NEWS outlets are there out there?

Please lock this thread already.
Anything that doesn't call Obama a radical socialist, who's out to destroy what America Stands for and loves the Tea Party is a left wing network?
Freaking eh, at worst, CNN, is moderate, slightly, to the right.

Describing CNN as "left wing" would be like describing Ronald Reagan as a Communist.

I've never been able to see how CNN is left-wing. What do they do to promote a left-wing point of view?

People can't afford cable anymore. They're finding it hard enough to just keep food on the table.

Send your letters of appreciation for the current economic situation to 1600 Pennsylvania Ave., Washington, D.C.

The term "liberal media" was invented by the rightist gas bags. Fox News NEEDS the term "liberal media" in order to convince the half-wits who watch them morning, noon, and night that switching the channel and hearing another opinion or point of view might turn them into gun-hating, atheist homosexuals.

CNN suffers from two main problems. First, they're just generally pretty terrible at reporting the news. Second, people want to be entertained and outraged (lied to), not informed, so they tune in to things like Fox.

It's awesome marketing.

Fox says buy our product because everyone else's is crap. Imagine if another company said the same thing about it's product, imagine the backlash and ridicule they would get.

Toyota says that their cars are the only decent ones, Honda, Porsche, Merceds, BMW, all crap.
