CNN falling behind other news networks

May 31, 2012

CNN's average viewership numbers for May are in and they show a bleak outlook for the network. 

Coming in strong is Fox News with 1,692,000 total viewers, while MSNBC drew an average of 674,000. 

CNN, lowest of the three, marked May with an average total of 389,000 viewers. This indicates their lowest number of viewers in 20 years. 

While I do watch CNN on occasion for the familiar faces I know and love (Anderson Cooper, Wolf Blitzer,) I have to admit I'm not a regular viewer. 

It seems there are so many different outlets to choose from when it comes to getting national news. What CNN exceled at, and what set them apart, was their coverage of international news. 

The international angle of CNN has been let loose and in my opinion, that is what has led to its downfall. 

Do you watch CNN? 

What do you think should be done to attract more viewers? 

What news network do you watch the most and why?

    Blog: Can we please fix the Oscars?

    Summary:  Fun facts: The first-ever Oscar ceremony, held in 1929, ran a brisk 15 minutes. By contrast, the longest was in 2002, clocking in at a monstrous 4 hours and change. As usual, there are things I loved about it and things I didn't. Rather than be snarky or complain, I'll offer a few suggestions on how the organizers might bring the show into the 21st century.

    Winter storm drama

    Athens-Clarke County police officers responded to Pinewood Estates North on a 911 call concerning a heated domestic dispute. it reportedly was an argument over the lack of heat and food in a family's trailer and a woman was threatening to stab anyone who tried to take away her 7-month-old child. State patrol responded also, from their post nearby on U.S. Highway 29 North. The situation apparently was resolved. An officer reported he was driving the woman and infant to another home in Athens. read more
