CNN is suffering a credibility crisis as viewership for the once-proud network continues to crater with no apparent plan in place to fix things anytime soon, according to media watchdogs and insiders. CNN’s audience shriveled in the second quarter of 2019, averaging only 541,000 total viewers, less than half Fox News Channel’s 1.3 million average. But CNN struggled even more during the primetime hours of 8-11 p.m. ET, finishing as the fifteenth most-watched network on basic cable behind networks such as TLC, Investigation Discovery and the Hallmark Channel. CNN averaged a dismal 761,000 primetime viewers while FNC averaged 2.4 million.

Obviously their business plan is not dependent on ratings or advertising revenue, rather they are content to be the #2 propaganda arm of the progressive Trump-loathing Democrats. Their only strategy is to build more airports

When you choose to jump into the cesspool, you acquire a stench that causes you to be ostracized. CNN seems content there--sort of like it is a big liberal hot tub.

CNN is just a free political commercial for the Democrat party. An enterprise like CNN that depends on ratings and profits would have been canceled long ago.

A newly released surveillance video shows the moments inside a convenience store in Arizona when a man shot and killed a customer before taking eight others hostage who later fought back against their attacker. The incident happened on May 9, 2018, when 53-year-old Joel McClain Carson walked into the Phoenix Circle K store with a gun, strolled up to a customer waiting in line and shot the man in the back of the head. "He said, 'This is not a game. It's not a joke. I don't want any money, any beer... I came prepared to die,'" one of the hostages later told the police in a recording obtained by KTVK-TV.

Fox News contributor and Fox Nation host Lawrence Jones said Tuesday that Baltimore’s liberal policies have negatively affected the city, speaking to some of the residents there about the conditions. “They have made it very clear, they don’t care about the politics of things. But it’s very clear that liberal policies have definitely affected Baltimore. The question is, what would be the response. We’ve seen the failure of all these cities, including Baltimore where there is corruption,” Jones told "Fox & Friends." Trump started a feud with House Oversight Committee Chairman Rep. Elijah Cummings, calling the congressman’s district “a disgusting, rat and rodent-infested mess.”

Tobias Ellwood told The Times: “The threats we’re facing are changing in front of us, the world is getting more complex. If we are wanting to continue to play this influential role on the international stage it will require further funding for our armed forces, not least the Royal Navy. Our Royal Navy is too small to manage our interests across the globe.” The news comes after it emerged that Tehran had ignored warnings from a British warship against seizing a UK-flagged tanker in the Gulf.

Fox News' Geraldo Rivera defended President Trump's Fourth of July parade plans saying that the only reason anyone opposed the celebration is their "hatred" for the president. "This is a symbol of the partisan toxic malignant atmosphere that we have in our country. When you see how Republicans feel about the country right now according to the surveys and the way that Democrats feel about the country now according to the surveys. It is amazing," Rivera told guest host Dan Bongino on "Hannity." "People on the left hates our president so much that they are willing to just put a negative spin on anything.

A U.S. high-altitude drone was shot down Thursday by an Iranian surface-to-air missile over the Strait of Hormuz amid heightened tensions in the region after last week’s attacks on two oil tankers, a source told Fox News. The U.S. Navy’s MQ-4C drone, , which has the same wingspan as a Boeing 737, was over international airspace at the time and about 17 miles from Iran, the source said. Capt. Bill Urban, a U.S. Central Command spokesman, declined to comment on the reported attack when reached by the AP, but he said no drone was over Iranian territory. IRNA news agency, the country’s state-run news arm, identified the drone as an RQ-4

Progressive Prince Harry has said that people expressing “racist” behaviour do so because of their upbringing, but may not know they are acting in a racist way because they “don’t understand” their “unconscious biases”. The Duke of Sussex made the comments whilst he was interviewing famed anthropologist Dr Jane Goodall for September’s issue of Vogue magazine, which is being guest-edited by his wife, American former TV actress Meghan Markle. Speaking of the “stigma” which is “handed down from generation to generation”, Prince Harry said that “unconscious bias” is “something which so many people don’t understand”.

Leadership at the Washington National Cathedral released a statement Tuesday criticizing President Trump’s rhetoric after he attacked House Oversight and Reform Committee Chairman Rep. Elijah E. Cummings and the “Squad” of four congresswomen of color. In a rare political statement from the church, leaders said Mr. Trump’s “dangerous” diction is being seen as a white supremacist “call to action,” adding that “violent words lead to violent actions.” “As faith leaders who serve at Washington National Cathedral — the sacred space where America gathers at moments of national significance — we feel compelled to ask: After two years of President Trump’s words and actions, when will Americans have enough?” they said.

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, the House Democrats’ powerful campaign arm, has just abruptly purged half a dozen staffers. Why? Because they are white. It appears that no one had anything against these particular staffers ... except for the color of their skin. Although roughly half the committee’s full-time staff (13 of 27) were nonwhite, this was not enough for some Democratic members of Congress. They complained DCCC Chairwoman Cheri Bustos of Illinois had brought in too many white staffers when she won the position. And they put enough pressure on her that she sacrificed her loyal staffers to the god of diversity. Even if all these staffers

(Snip) In a column at Medium, in which she explained her plan, Harris said: Medicare for All will cover all medically necessary services, including emergency room visits, doctor visits, vision, dental, hearing aids, mental health, and substance use disorder treatment, and comprehensive reproductive health care services. “Comprehensive reproductive health care services” is a euphemism for abortion.

A new law in California will require candidates for president to release their tax returns in order to appear on the primary ballot in March, 2020. (Snip) Candidates will have to submit five years of tax returns by November to be eligible for the primary ballot. California officials will post the information online for the public to access. Newsom insists the law is constitutional, but it will almost certainly face a challenge in federal court.

After going back and forth and back and forth about whether she would eliminate private insurance and shove every American into Medicare, Kamala Harris thinks she’s found a solution. Shove everyone into Medicare, but do it a little more slowly and pretend that private insurers will still be involved. No doubt the Democratic California senator is reading the same polls as everyone else. Namely, that the public thinks it likes “Medicare for All” until it learns what it means. Then support evaporates. But Harris still wants to appeal to the Democrats’ increasingly socialist base. So, voilà. She’s proposing to let people choose between regular Medicare and Medicare Advantage,

He then passed those documents to a friend, Columbia University Law Professor Daniel Richman, who gave them to The New York Times. Comey admitted to that arrangement during congressional testimony.
