Atlanta. May 26, 2021. CNN, MSNBC and other pro-government “mainstream” news sources kept hundreds of thousands of viewers throughout the Trump presidency, as the networks consistently criticized the president.
But since Trump left office in January, the same networks have lost hundreds of thousands of viewers. People simply won’t tune in to watch government-worshipping commentary and praise for the current president.
CNN has lost almost 70% of its viewers since the end of the Trump presidency. MSNBC similarly lost 49% of its viewers since January.
Fox News lost 12% of its viewers since January and 15% of viewers between ages 25-54.
