Andy Lack, NBC News chief, is beside himself regarding the dip in MSNBC’s ratings following the end of the Mueller investigation. In May 2019, ratings for the network in the advertiser-coveted 25-54 demo were down by 32% from last year. Overall, MSNBC’s ratings in total viewers fell flat, although it saw an increase in dayside viewership of 8%, while Fox News and CNN were down.
Rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic as it was sinking did not work then nor will it work now for the USS MSNBC. Better to scuttle that rust bucket and start anew with a seaworthy design the American People will have confidence in.
I have a suggestion, however, it would require a 180-degree turn in philosophy and direction, and it may prove to be to significant change for MSNBC to handle, but here it is: try telling the truth.
The problem with the media is they have become the enemy of the American people. They hyped unfounded accusations about Trump and other Republicans and they intentionally refuse to cover or make excuses for stories such as Uranium One and Bob Mueller’s unprofessional actions with both the makeup of his investigation team and the fact he knew the reason for the investigation was the dossier that was proven to be unfounded before he even started the investigation..good luck hearing and reading about it on CNN, MSNBC, NBC, CBS, Washington Post, USA Today and New York Times.
The media has now become an arm of the Democratic National Committee, and the people know that these so-called journalists have an agenda disguised as the news. Rachel Maddow is at least honest that her show is an opinion and not the news, CNN and MSNBC politicize and sanitize the news.
I remember back in the ’80s how people would make fun of Pravda for being almost all propaganda, but today Pravda is more accurate and honest than the politically controlled news we are getting. If a journalists twists, makes up or not covers a story due to politics they are the enemy, and it’s disingenuous for these trolls like Jim Acosta to pretend that they’re the victim.
When your only programming consists of 24/7 Trump bashing, it does get repetitive and old. You can only cast spurious accusations with no actual facts for so long before the public see these stations for what they are, a democrat propaganda outlet. Most of these stations are now heading the way of Air America a liberal radio station that performed this same function about 15 years ago. Now they are no longer on the air.
