CNN viewership declined over 50% since Biden took office

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.

‘Coordinated effort’ to hide Hunter Biden information: Treasury denies request for reports

Published

The United States Treasury Department has denied Republicans’ request for reports and documents which deal with the President’s son, Hunter Biden. In a bizarre response, Treasury legislative affairs chief Jonathan Davidson sent a letter to the House Oversight and Accountability Chairman James Comer saying they need more detail as to why the panel its seeking such “highly sensitive information.”

Apparently suspicious activity surrounding the President of the United States’ son doing business deals, foreign banking and transactions with overseas entities including China and Ukraine is not obvious enough.

Davidson’s letter did not acknowledge whether such reports on the Bidens exist, but instructed Comer that “improper disclosure” of such information can undermine the executive branch’s “conduct of law enforcement, intelligence, and national security activities.”

Comer responded that “this coordinated effort by the Biden Administration to hide information about President Biden and his family’s shady business schemes is alarming and raises many questions.”

Comer added the panel will continue to request the reports and will use “the power of the gavel to get them if needed.”

Bloomberg News reports:

Comer and other Republicans already said they have evidence that finances, credit cards, and bank accounts of Hunter and Joe Biden were commingled if not shared.

And in an interim report released in November, Republicans surmised that the Treasury Department has at least 150 SARs related to financial transactions of Biden family members.

Nonetheless, in his letter to Yellen, Comer explained, “The Committee is investigating President Biden’s knowledge of and role in these schemes to assess whether he has compromised our national security at the expense of the American people.”

Comer added the committee also “will examine drafting legislation to strengthen federal ethics laws regarding employees and their families.”
