HUGE CNN FAIL! Audience Survey Backfires
HUGE CNN FAIL! Audience Survey Backfires & Shows 75 Percent Of Audience Thinks Trump Should Not Be Investigated For Obstruction by Susan Duclos – All News Pipeline
CNN is having a bad day…. strike that, they are having a very, very a bad month if their ratings are anything to go by as the numbers for the week of June 5, 2017, they didn’t even make the top five ‘Basic Cable Top 5 – Prime time (Total Viewers)’ and came in number 4 out of five in ‘Basic Cable Top 5 – Total Day (Total Viewers)’, behind Fox News, Nickelodeon, and MSNBC.
From their own voter panel survey backfire on June 8, 2017, to their public challenge to President Trump to provide proof of MSM “fake news”, which the Daily Caller was only to happy to do in an article in response to that challenge, to their most recent “unscientific” online survey (meaning they could not weight the demographics to skewer the poll results for results they want), they are seeing backfire after backfire in their attempts to “spin” their liberal bias.
Is it any wonder that Americans marched over to CNN headquarters on Saturday to protest the “journalistic malpractice on a daily basis,” that CNN airs.
CNN FAIL #1
On June 8, 2017, CNN’s National Correspondent Gary Tuchman went to Ohio to watch the Senate testimony of former FBI director James Comey, then pulled nine Trump voters from the group to ask them some very leading questions, including whether they believed Comey lied (4 raised their hands), whether they believed President Trump lied (0 raised their hands), then made the mistake of asking why some panelists didn’t raise their hands.
The answer wasn’t what CNN expected as the female respondent looked right at him and said “Well, first of all, things can be distortedand appear like lies,” then continued on to pointedly remark “And I think maybe the media might have distorted some things and now we’re not getting both sides.”
Remember, CNN had previously reported that their unnamed “sources” had told them Comey would be refuting the President’s assertion that Comey informed him three times that he was not personally under FBI investigation, so they fully expected this panel of voters to hear Comey deny doing so, but instead Comey confirmed Trump’s assertion, and it was CNN that was forced to add a correction to their initial story and to change their headline.
CNN FAIL #2
On June 13, 2017, President Trump tweeted “Fake News is at an all time high. Where is their apology to me for all of the incorrect stories???” CNN’s Chris Cillizza threw down the gauntlet by responding with “Name a story that is “fake” or “incorrect.” You can’t just make a blanket assertion without ANY specifics.”
The Daily Caller pick up the gauntlet and hammered CNN and Cillizza over the head with it by highlighting some of the biggest “fake news” stories from CNN’s “CNN Reports Hands Up, Don’t Shoot,” meme which later turned out to be a big lie, to CNN Falsely Claims Sherelle Smith Was ‘Calling For Peace’, when she was actually calling for protesters to take the violence into the suburbs of the city, to CNN Says It’s Illegal To Look At Wikileaks, to CNN Says Rape Is Pre-Existing Condition Under ACHA, and their final of the top five “fake news” stories from CNN, is listed as the one mentioned above where they falsely reported that Comey would refute President Trump.
While the DC highlighted just the fake news from CNN, another Twitter user responded to Cillizza with a laundry list of fake news stories from the MSM in general.
