Maybe CNN wants its ratings back

Over the last few months, we’ve seen CNN collapse in the ratings and the rankings among viewers.    

Just a few days ago, Heather Wilhelm spoke for many of us who used to watch CNN and now can’t take it seriously anymore:    

I’m old enough to remember when CNN was taken more seriously, back in the day when the booming voice of James Earl Jones grandly announced “THIS … IS CNN.” 

Today, however, when it comes to the ratings, the supposedly middle-of-the-road CNN wildly trails its openly ideological rivals Fox News and MSNBC. 

It almost brings to mind the advice found in the Book of Revelation: “Would that you were either cold or hot! So, because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth.” 

I don’t know about the spitting part but lots of people are flipping channels or reading a book at the airport.

That’s why I found this interview so interesting.

Someone over at CNN has finally decided to challenge a Democrat: “CNN To Dem Senator: Did You Object When Obama Kept Unaccompanied Illegal Kids In Cages?

It was a good and honest question. There was not a lot of noise or concern when we saw those photos from 2014-15.  No one was crying or shouting when it happened under Obama!

Maybe the question was just a fluke. Or maybe someone at CNN has gotten a memo from one of the “bean counters” about the ratings. The memo might read something like this:  Hey, act like a journalist and we may get our ratings back. Otherwise, we may all find ourselves sending FOX our résumés!

Yes, I watch FOX but I wouldn’t mind if CNN would give me a good reason to check them out. The 24/7 anti-Trump attacks are not working!
