CNN’s "The Lead with Jake Tapper" has shed a staggering 75% of its audience since the liberal network experienced a January spike in viewers. Tapper’s program averaged 2.8 million viewers in January but settled for only 706,000 in the 4 p.m. ET timeslot from May 31 through June 23, losing three-quarters of its audience in the process. Tapper’s second-quarter viewership is down 49% compared to the first quarter. While January featured a historic news cycle with the Capitol riot, the inauguration of President Biden and the lead-up to former President Donald Trump’s second impeachment trial, his direct timeslot competition on Fox News


Any time CNN loses viewers, that is a good thing.
I haven't watched any CNN in at least 20 years, only even heard of this Tapper person via comments and articles here, usually about his stupid antics and extreme bias. Never even heard his voice, which I consider a plus.

I find even 700k viewers of CNN to be an unbelievable number. Maybe if you counted ever airport concourse with a TV tuned into that bilge. Fake Krapper is fake news. When Trump speaks about fake news, this and Acosta are the poster children for it.

It NEEDED shedding! No big loss. If you are partial to CNN your guess is as good as theirs as to what's going on. Make up your own news.

To be honest I don't know who Jake Tapper is I've never seen the person only hear of him here. About a week ago I found out who Mr. Potato Head is as he is known on a short YouTube video. I have to doubt the viewership numbers of CNN like everything liberals report.

Don't expect this to last. DJT is on the road, and the Commie Left feasts on "Orange Man Bad" stories. This is just the lull before the storm. Cyrus Vance III for instance. He may not have enough to bring a case att, but leaks out of his office of all his made up charges will be dumped on the airwaves soon, so DJT can be tried by the MSM.

Jake Tapper's pose as a "journalist" is a joke. Before he came to CNN he was a propagandist for a gun confiscation group. Jake Tapper has never held a job in media that didn't involve dishing straogjt-up propaganda.

Jake the Fake Crapper always looks like he’s smelling his own flatulence. I haven’t watched anything on CNN since they became the Clinton News Network back in the 90s. This is good news though and I hope Fake’s ratings in particular and CNN’s in general continue to fall faster than Biden’s IQ points.

Everywhere other than in Big Media newsrooms, Americans speak openly of President Joe Biden's cognitive decline and wonder whether he can last out his four-year term. If he cannot last, there are certain things we can be confident will happen and other things about which we can only speculate. The latter will be much more intriguing. Should Biden leave office, willingly or otherwise, Kamala Harris will become president. This is a given. Article II, Section 1, Clause 6 of the Constitution makes clear that in "case of the removal of the President from office, or of his death, resignation, or inability

Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, is urging the Biden administration to lift its long-standing requirement for people to wear masks on airplanes and other forms of mass transit ahead of the upcoming Fourth of July holiday weekend. Airline travelers ages 2 and older currently have to wear face masks in order to fly, despite the widespread availability of COVID-19 vaccines and the CDC's recent declaration that fully vaccinated people can travel safely. "Biden’s CDC needs to ‘follow the science’ and end its mask mandate for vaccinated Americans on airplanes and public transportation," Cruz tweeted Monday morning.

A former South Carolina state trooper who led the 2015 cold case involving an alleged fatal hit-and-run is speaking out exclusively to Fox News, describing how the prominent Murdaugh family refused to cooperate with the investigation, and he was suspicious of the circumstances surrounding the young victim’s death. Todd Proctor was the lead state police investigator working the unsolved death of 19-year-old Stephen Smith, who was alleged to have been killed by a hit-and-run driver in Hampton County six years ago. The cold case was recently reopened as state law enforcement agents continue to investigate the deaths of Maggie Murdaugh, 52, and her 22-year-old son, Paul Murdaugh.

Move over, Jeffrey Epstein. Another high-profile prisoner has been found dead in his jail cell before his trial, with authorities claiming suicide. John McAfee, who wrote the first commercial anti-virus software, sold the company bearing his name, and later urged customers to uninstall the software, was widely described as "eccentric." He lived for a while in Belize but left that country in 2013 after being wanted for questioning by police over a murder. He made and lost most of a fortune believed to have totaled $100 million. McAfee was arrested in October last year at Barcelona Airport at the request of U.S. authorities

In the last two days, three interesting stories have emerged from the Middle East. The first story is about Ebrahim "the Butcher" Raisi's election as president in Iran; the second is Israel's announcement that this election forces it to protect itself against this butcher; and the third is news that Iran's sole nuclear power plant abruptly shut down. The first and second stories are quite obviously connected. The real question is whether the third story is a promise of things to come or is just a coincidence. That Raisi was going to be president is no surprise to regular American Thinker readers.

I have despised Nicolle Wallace ever since I learned of the ways she sabotaged the vice presidential run of Sarah Palin, whom she was supposedly helping run for national office. In my book, she is a vile snake. Since then, she has gone as fully left as David Brock, another onetime conservative who went to the dark side, trying for years to get Rush Limbaugh thrown off the air, destroy Fox News, and discredit every conservative. Wallace's show on MSNBC thrived while there was the Trump presidency to attack and spew hatred at. But it turns out that without Trump, not too many people want to watch her.
