According to Nielson Media Research, ratings continued to plummet in 2021 for CNN and MSNBC. Meanwhile, Fox News cruised to the top of all basic cable.

MSNBC averaged only 847,000 viewers during 2021’s second quarter and CNN’s average was 654,000. On the other hand, Fox News averaged 1.2 million during the same quarter making it number one.

Among viewers 25-54, MSNBC averaged only 115,000 viewers, while Fox News had 204,000 and CNN had 160,000. During primetime, MSNBC finished last again, averaging 198,000 viewers in this demographic while Fox News averaged 347,000 and CNN snagged 224,000 viewers.

This latest report is former President Trump’s prediction coming true. Back in 2017, he warned: “all forms of media will tank if I’m not there because without me, their ratings are going down the tubes.”

Trump responded to the report Tuesday, accusing these left-leaning news stations of being too boring. “CNN ratings are down 70%, MSDNC is also way down,” Trump said in a statement. “Actually, there are ALL way down. They say the news is ‘boring’ since I left D.C. Morning Joe, Joy Reid (whoever that is?), Nicole Wallace, Jake Tapper, and even Chris Wallace, at Fox, in free fall. A wonderful thing to see!”

“CNN and MSNBC were one-trick ponies, and that trick was bashing Trump,” Cornell Law School professor and media critic William A. Jacobson told Fox News

Pope Francis calls for universal ban on ‘so-called surrogate motherhood’

Pope Francis called for a universal ban on surrogacy, likening the practice as an unborn child “turned into an object of trafficking.”

“I consider despicable the practice of so-called surrogate motherhood, which represents a grave violation of the dignity of the woman and the child, based on the exploitation of situations of the mother’s material needs,” Francis said in a speech to the Holy See on Monday.

The “uterus for rent” process, as Francis has called it, was estimated to bring in $14 billion in the U.S. in 2022, and is projected to grow to a $129 billion market by 2032. National Review reports Individual surrogacies can cost anywhere from $60,000 to $200,000 plus in the U.S. Rising infertility rates, an increase in the number of fertility clinics, and “sedentary lifestyles” contribute to surrogacy’s recent popularity, according to Global Market Insights.

“A child is always a gift and never the basis of a commercial contract,” Francis continued. “Consequently, I express my hope for an effort by the international community to prohibit this practice universally.”

Surrogacy is already banned in many European countries. In the United States, commercial surrogacy, or for-profit surrogacy, is legal in some states, and the practice has been used by celebrities who are very public with their decision to use surrogacy.

Altruistic surrogacy, the method by which a woman carries another person’s child for no official compensation, is legal in the United Kingdom, Australia, Canada, Hong Kong, South Africa, Greece, and Iceland, according to the National Institutes of Health.

The speech was about threats to peace and human dignity. “A child is always a gift and never the basis of a commercial contract,” Francis continued. “Consequently, I express my hope for an effort by the international community to prohibit this practice universally.”

Francis also listed Russia’s war on Ukraine, the Israel-Hamas war, climate change, and increased weapons production as great threats to peace on Monday.
