Liberal media's chickens...coming home to roost
Thomas Lifson

The laws of karma seem to be operating when it comes to the Obama sycophant cable news outlets. The website Hang the Bankers puts together some data:


    It's been a tough year for the liberal cable news outlets.

    Data released Tuesday show CNN shedding 48 percent of total viewers since last November and MSNBC dropping 45 percent.

    The numbers were even worse in the all important demographic of people aged 25 to 54 as CNN's ratings dropped 59 percent and MSNBC's 52 percent.

As the site notes, last year was a presidential election year, so some decline was inevitable. But:


    FNC is only down 18 percent since last November and 30 percent in the demo. (snip)

    FNC was second in all of cable in prime time this November averaging over 2 million viewers. This represented a decline of 21 percent in total viewers and 41 percent in the demo.

In other words, the shift of cable news viewers away from liberal CNN and radical left (Forward!) MSNBC is considerable. Unlike monopoly newspapers, cable news viewers have a choice, and they are finding that those who uncritically supported Obama are less trustworthy and therefore are changing their viewing habits.

Unmistakably, there is a trend here. The Bard was correct: Truth will out.

Even more than biased news stories, voters want the truth, even if it isn't what they want to hear. There are so many who voted for Obama who are shocked that he isn't what he seemed to be. Obama miscalculated, and figured the liberal media would cover anything he did or said. His miscalculations came when he went way beyond reality and half truths, to downright lie. Besides, ACA affects a lot of people personally, so they are paying attention.
