Holy crap! How the mighty have fallen. The Hill’s “Rising” reports Tucker Carlson’s reruns are getting more viewers than Don Lemon’s prime time slot. Now before you start to laugh at how freaking pathetic that is, I have to wonder just who in the hell is watching CNN at this point?
The supposed “most trusted name in news” channel has struggled with ratings every since Trump left the White House.

Speaking getting over it, in 2021, CNN failed to get more than a million viewers at the their primetime slots for 24 weeks straight.
I know Trump is somewhere laughing his ass off. He labeled the network “fake news” for false reporting, yet the network’s hosts refused to check themselves and do actual journalism. I would have assumed that once Trump left the White House, they would at least try to regain their respectability and maybe even gain a little bit of credibility. But no, that didn’t happen.
