If you wanted to pick the top ten CNN failures of 2017, where would you even start? By July 2017, CNN’s fake news frenzy had cost multiple producers their jobs for publicizing stories based on anonymous sources that got stories 100 percent wrong. CNN’s primetime viewers numbered less than one million per evening on every single show in July — and it’s only gone downhill since then!
Would you have ever imagined that we would be living in a time when CNN was the number THREE cable news network, trailing behind MSNBC? That’s how bad CNN has tanked over the past year. Brett Baier, Tucker Carlson and Sean Hannity all double or triple their nearest competitors in viewership by following one simple formula: Telling the truth. Imagine that!
Fortunately for all of us, we didn’t have to sit through hours and hours of CNN fake news reports about Russian collusion, because citizen journalist Mark Dice did it for us. Making appearances on the final list are Wolf Blitzer, Don Lemon, Van Jones, Pokemon Go and a fictional Russian in a pear tree (okay, we made that last one up). Even Mr. Dice admits, however, that narrowing the list down to just ten failures was not easy.
