New report shows viewers are leaving the mainstream media by the droves

New report shows viewers are leaving the mainstream media by the droves

According to statistics CNN is loosing 50 percent of its total viewers leading the list of losers in the media. So it looks like people are turning elsewhere to get there news. To talk more about why people are choosing to ditch the mainstream networks and where they are turning to instead David Seaman a journalist and host of “The DL Show” joins RT’s Liz Wahl.

As TV Newser‘s Chris Ariens reported today: “CNN bore the brunt of the downward trend the news networks experienced this month and for much of the first quarter, when compared to the busy first few months of 2011.

“For the month of March, CNN was down -50% in total viewers and down -60% in A25-54 viewers (Total Day). The net was down -21% in Total Viewers and down -26% in A25-54 viewers (Primetime) compared to March 2011.”

The viewer exodus is not limited to CNN, though. Roger Ailes’ aging heavyweight champion FOX News “was not immune to a loss in viewership for the month of March and for the first quarter of 2012. For the month, Fox News is down -17%,” according to another post by Ariens.

Perhaps, if I may be so bold, this is what happens to you when you continue to report stories that no longer resemble — even remotely — what your own viewers see outside their windows and apartments.

CNN has barely covered the rapidly growing Occupy and Tea Party protests around the country, and as the clip from Current TV’s Cenk Uygur below points out, CNN gave zero prime-time coverage to the NDAA’s indefinite detention provisions, arguably one of the most devastating rollbacks of Americans’ civil rights ever.

What cable news did to the traditional press, internet is doing to them. Turn about is fair play, they are just mad their 15 minutes in the spot light was so short lived. If they don't cover whats relevant to viewers...they will stop viewing. Not very complicated.

There is a secret society patterned after the historic Illuminati consisting of George Soros, Bill Gates and Henry Kissinger that is known. The Societies objective is world domination in the form of ”The New World Order” and reducing the earth’s population by 90% !!. People world wide are becoming aware of this group and their intentions and realize they also control the news media in the USA. Here is a statement by David Rockefeller as he addressed a meeting of this society: “We are grateful to the Washington Post, The New York Times, Time Magazine and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost forty years. It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subjected to the lights of publicity during those years. But, the world is now more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government. The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national auto-determination practiced in past centuries.” — (This is an admission of 40 years of planning for One World Government while censoring the news to the public!) More statements by David Rockefeller, found at – Also from: Quotes from David Rockefeller's Memoirs (Random House, New York, 2002) Chapter 27, pages 404 and 405. Cited by Dr. Dennis Cuddy: Many people who now realized how these secret elite are censoring our news, go to their computers and read news about the US in foreign papers on-line. I must say – it’s amazing how much is not being told about conditions and events here in our Country!! Try it! Dont depend on the US TV and local news. They are told what not to say!

This rule by the elite and powerful has been since the dawn of man. America has never been truly ruled by the people. Even from colonial times we were first under rule of the queen. Since 1776 America has secretly been owned first by France due to money she loaned us to pay for the war. When France finally called in her note, the elite John R. stepped up and purchased America back from foreign hands. Since those times America has been in debtorship which it has kept artfully hidden from the citizens on a never ending tax tread- mill. In mid-ninteen 50's an elite group met in a swanky resort that sat atop underground bunkers designed by the military to house those at the top of America's political triangle in the event of world destruction. This was the beginning of the trilateral commission. The plans they laid out then are still in place today except that these plans have been " improved" and "expanded" all the while implementing the unthinkable upon a population throughly saturated with "Good Ole USA" and " God and Country' delusions. Fast forward to Mr. Obama and his undaunting devotion to a new world order and one government for all. Once again the people are being swept along under the same illusions. No one seems to be willing to say that in a one world government there will be no room for individuals. Like China and it's 200 million acting as one ,dressing as one. 200 million robots without hope under threat of death for even a glance of desent.

I really do hope that this trend continues. The main stream media needs a wakeup call! People cannot put up with its propergander forever! Unfortunately this is why they will wipe or try to control any unwanted sources from the Internet. Keep the good work up people.....

That is why I love this site....always some interesting articles that you never see in mainstream media. I do truly believe that we are being brainwashed and deceived by the elites who are in key positions to control information and commerce.
