CNN's viewership has dropped to its lowest point since 1991, The New York Daily News reports, while Fox News continues to lead by a wide margin. In the last year, CNN's ratings have dropped about 35% to an average of 446,000 viewers, while Fox News Channel's ratings have only dropped 1% to an average of 1.79 million viewers. MSNBC, the second-most watched news channel, is down 13% to an average of 689,000.

However, CNN's drop in viewership is primarily in the U.S. Internationally, the network continues to hold relatively strong ratings. "Piers Morgan Tonight" and Anderson Cooper's eponymous talk show, "Anderson," have not dropped quite as far as CNN's overall ratings, but they're still on the decline. What news channel do you tune into most often, if any?

    For the few that watch MSNBC, "hey they make up the news," it's yellow journalism at best.

    Fox news is full distorted information. People who watch believe anything that they are told, don't read, and are not critical thinkers. FOX news equals Zombies.

    NY1 on Time Warner Cable in NYC. CNN used to have live news 24/7 then they decided to try to entertain viewers. We don't need to be entertained, we want to be informed.

    Since the ruling for FOX confirmed in a high court that the news is allowed to lie all night long, and that there is no obligation to tell you ANY truth, I stopped watching all "TV news."

    You want truth? Look to foreign media. I recommend the UK Times, Russian Pravda, Hindustan Times, and Sydney Morning Herald for pieces of truth. Follow that with YouTube for actual video of truth, and you can get an idea of when the MainStreamMedia is lieing, such as when Giffords got shot in Tucson. That was a judge assassination, not a Representative wounding.
  • MindaBrown MediaMike 2012/07/02 02:33:39

    I think the news loop(s,) are too short. There has to be new news at least every 3 or 4 hours? The world doesn't stop because of 2 or 3 news pieces? Besides, all doom and gloom, no matter how true it is, gets a bit depressing.

    We all are quite aware of "The New World" we are being shoveled fed by this outrageous government. For those who think all is well, they're watching, reading, listening too CNN, MSNBC, NPR, and the like. It's sickening.

    If Mitt is elected, reforming the IRS should be done right after he deals with our health insurance issues. Let our earned monies stay with its earners. Watch the econ grow.

    I don't believe much of what I hear from the media anymore, but Fox seems to be more down to earth an more informative. The other channels really seem to sweep the important news under the rug if it's against their views and try to distract you from real issues at hand with a lot of less important news. It's like watching a bunch of mind controling alliens sometimes.

    I find it amusing when people disparage Fox News. They are the ones that drink up propoganda and have never watched in the first place. Fox more often that not will present a point/counterpoint on any topic and bring in both sides for discussion. They also have the courage to tell us that yes, we are shelling our 80 billion dollars a years in unaccountable food stamps. Now that's a need to know because so much is fraudulent. Is that OK with ya'll????
    Just one example of being informed.

    NBC is the most Liberal channel on the networks. and its ratings have gone way down.
  • meMyself Pamela 2012/07/06 15:14:12
    That's your opinion. Everybody has the right to have their own opinion.

    MSNBC is one extreme, Fox is the other extreme. That's my opinion.

    We watch HLN which is a CNN affiliate, however, in the morning they run through all of the headlines quickly. We get to see what is going on and they don't seem to be biased. Their shows at night do not share the same lack of bias. We only watch it in the morning.

    I watch Fox News because they give more than one side of the news, and they have all the news and don't hide certain news stories like NBC and MSNBC have taken to doing.
  • meMyself jabo 2012/07/06 15:17:49
    Really? That's news to me.

    CNN is THE cartoon network of news. NBC, CBS and ABC secretly has a laught track to awaken viewers. They all seem to work from a single viewpoint and even skip serious situations that all Americans should be advised of in favor of frivolous "fill" for their time allotment. I rarely view their weather reports unless there are imminent storm conditions. In short these once trusted news sources cut their own achilles have become mostly useless for a complete story. Trivial book promotions by mental midgets and 71 ways for serving peanutbutter and jelly segments have pruned their value to the nub. They could boost their ratings with Matt Lauer introducing cartoons!

    I listen to news and opinion programming, but don't believe everything I hear on Fox, but I pay attention. I also wonder why some guests who seem like Mushroom University grads, return over and over and over and rarely make sense. Sometimes that is difficult with all the ladies, but they are smart and usually question guest of different views, even if seemingly extreme. I send the hosts and some of their guests my opinions if I think they missed something or should seek some serious help. So far I have seen none of those pathologies on SodaHead.

    The news on The Young Turks is too fake.
