LIMBAUGH: “HEY CNN, You’re Falling To Third Place For A Reason”

RUSH: Hey, CNN, you know, you’re falling to third place for a reason.  The numbers are in.  CNN has now fallen to beneath MSNBC.  You have to try to do that.  You have to make an effort to throw away that kind of an audience, and I don’t think there’s any question about it.

CNN has become the all-Trump-bashing network all the time.  It’s just what they do, and I think people don’t want to hear it.  I’m not saying that they’re all Trump fans, either.  It’s just they don’t… I mean, it never ends. Whatever Trump says, whatever he’s in the news for, it’s a bash, it’s a rip, it’s a criticism. Then they’ll convene their roundtables to double down on it and they’ll have one Trump spokesman with four or five other people.  And it’s just…

These things matter, and I just don’t think their audience… They may be all-in for Hillary. Their audience may be a primarily Democrat audience. But why are they losing?  I mean, they’re throwing audience away.  They’re bleeding.  It’s incredible.  And they were number one during the Democrat convention.  Are you aware of that?  They had twice the audience of Fox during the Democrat convention.  They had, I think, an average of six million viewers a night versus Fox’s three.

Those are rounded numbers.  Now, it could well be that Fox’s audience has no idea to punish itself and watch the Democrat convention.  And a lot of libs know that CNN is the liberal Democrat network, so they tuned in. But they stay with it, and they have fallen by the wayside even more.  By the way, here’s another CNN indictment: CNN was the network reporting that Secret Service had called Trump and demanded a sit-down to discuss with him his “threat” against Mrs. Clinton.  You know what, folks?

It didn’t happen. The Secret Service never met with Trump.  Not about this.  The Secret Service didn’t have any cautionary warnings for Trump.  “A federal official on Wednesday said the US Secret Service had not formally spoken with Republican Donald Trump’s presidential campaign regarding his suggestion a day earlier that gun rights activists could stop Democratic rival Hillary Clinton from curtailing their access to firearms.  …

“[A] federal official familiar with the matter told Reuters that there had been no formal conversations between the Secret Service and the Trump campaign.  Earlier CNN had reported that there had been multiple conversations between the campaign and the agency. …  ‘No such meeting or conversation ever happened,’ Trump wrote on Twitter, accusing CNN of having made up the report.” They not only probably made it up, they pounded it! I mean, they were pounding it from 2:30 yesterday on practically nonstop.
