CNN has lost more than half its viewers in multiple categories since President Joe Biden took office, Fox News has reported.

CNN averaged 2.2 million viewers throughout the first three weeks of 2021, however, the network has since declined 54% and now averages one million viewers since Inauguration Day, according to Fox.

Moreover, CNN’s most prominent demographic of viewers, adults aged 25-54, dropped by 60%.

Primetime hosts Anderson Cooper, Chris Cuomo and Don Lemon also saw a sharp decline in viewership. From 8-11 p.m., CNN saw an average of 3.1 million viewers from Dec. 28 through Inauguration Day. Now the network averages 1.4 million views from 8-11 p.m. Moreover, CNN’s primetime lineup lost 63% of its viewers among the 25-54 age demographic.

During an interview on the New York Times podcast “Sway,” host Kara Swisher asked Lemon if he was “worried about the viewership fizzle.”

“No. I’m not worried about it … Trump was a horrible person. And he was terrible for the country. And it is better for all — for the world that he is no longer the President of the United States,” Lemon said. “So if that means that cable news ratings go down? Aww. So I’m not really that concerned about it. I would prefer that my ratings go down and Trump not be in office than my ratings be sky-high and him be there. That’s the honest truth.”

Fox News noted that they have retained most of their audience with single-digit declines since Inauguration Day and they are expected to be the most-watched cable news network for the second month in a row among both total day and primetime viewers.

Uvalde, TX Mayor Calls Beto O’Rourke a ‘Sick Son of a B****’ After he Heckled Gov. Abbott’s Presser

The vile act of politicizing horrific tragedies such as the Uvalde, Texas elementary school massacre, has been in full force. Democrat Beto O’Rourke “was escorted out of Texas Republican Gov. Greg Abbott’s press conference Wednesday after he showed up and heckled the governor in the middle of an update on the elementary school massacre in Uvalde” reports The Blaze.

Beto is a former congressman from El Paso, Texas as well as a Democratic presidential nominee briefly for the 2020  elections. During his time, he campaigned hard on his support for a mandatory gun buyback scheme.

The Blaze reported on Beto’s behavior at Abbott’s press conference:

As Abbott was finishing his remarks to reporters, O’Rourke, the Democratic candidate for governor, stood up and began speaking about the need for gun control legislation.

“Excuse me,” Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick said as O’Rourke ignored him and went on about how “the time has come to put a stop” to gun violence. O’Rourke did not have a microphone, and most of his comments were inaudible.

“Sit down!” shouted Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) as the Democrat kept speaking.

“You’re out of line and an embarrassment!” Patrick told O’Rourke, while others began raising their voices.

“You are doing nothing!” O’Rourke yelled at Abbott as police officers began to march him out of the room.

“You need to get his a** out of here, this isn’t the place to talk this over,” said Uvalde Mayor Don Mclaughlin, calling O’Rourke a “sick son of a b****.”
