Trust in CNN has been on the wane for many a year. Their liberal, anti conservative stance has eroded their viewership. You only need to see who their main people are:
- Soledad O'Brien who may as well wear an Obama bumper sticker while on air.
- You then have Van Jones – former Obama Green Energy Czar and an ardent communist who is believes that George W Bush, not Al-Qaeda caused 9/11 .
Those are just a few to mention. Maybe next in line is Piers Morgan?
On January 2011 Piers Morgan (UK) took over from Larry King Live. his mission statement was to host a candid, in-depth newsmaker interview program on CNN.
Well………..from looking at his twitter account, are you really going to get candid, in-depth interviews?
Look at how he clutches to the sides of the Obama’s!
Can you imagine if there was such a picture of say, Sean Hannity or Rush Limbaugh caressing the sides of George and Laura Bush?
What's more is that the Christmas picture is actually the background on his twitter page.
What this goes to tell you is that he cannot be taken seriously to deliver such bold interviews and getting to the bottom of the issues. In any event from looking at the ratings the show is in big trouble.
In June 2012, it was reported that Piers Morgan Tonight had the lowest ratings for a CNN prime-time slot in 21 years. To garner a lower viewership than Larry King takes some doing.
If only he adopted the idea of asking real questions, instead of showboating around liberal celebrities and the President - maybe then we can take him seriously.
The final nail in the coffin is where he stated on his twitter account that he was gleeful about the Connecticut shooting, in which 26 people died, 20 of those were children.
One can only imagine what the media would say if the same one said by a conservative.
In any event, I can hardly see incoming CNN President, Jeff Zucker doing the honourable thing and firing Piers. That means that CNN really doesn't have an interest in reporting real news and seeking the truth in their programming. As a result CNN will continue to fall even further behind of FOX News, who dominate cable news in America.
Zucker may wish to learn from FOX, who after the 2012 election shelved Karl Rove and Dick Morris after they were way off in their predictions. The idea behind that was that FOX care about their viewers and the importance of accurate reporting.
CNN & Piers take note.
