    HAHAHA!!! Fun to watch the demise of such a corrupt news organization.


    Total daytime viewership fell by 22% in May compared to April, and even more (28%) among viewers aged 25-54, the most coveted viewing demographic.
    Only 913,000 people watched the first 24-hour cable news network’s prime time programming in May, and 610,000 overall.
    Only the most Woke segment of society, the young, appear to be getting their news from the Atlanta-based network.


    I think the whole "cancel culture" thing backfired on them! Lol.
    CNN Sunday nights has by far the most interesting and varied content of all of the cable TV channels.

    Summertime is the slowest time of year for cable TV networks so do not get yourself in a tizzy over what you are reading from Fox News.

    CNN dominates airport lounges across the country and many other public venues seen by millions of unaccounted for people each day.

    Also the polls you are referring to is about people watching TV. Many people like myself, watch little TV and prefer to browse news websites where CNN has a strong presence in all demographics.

    As far as calling CNN corrupt, do you have any proof?

    Fox News is way more dishonest in how its night time personalities portray topics.

    When big breaking news stories occur, CNN is always #1 in the ratings because the majority of people trust their content and accuracy.

    Remember, like the election, your point of view is shared with approx 40% of the population. 60% do not agree with you.

    Dominion Voting Systems sues Newsmax and One America News for 'barrage of lies' targeting the company



    Dominion Voting Systems, a technology company that was targeted with disinformation by former President Donald Trump and allies, filed lawsuits on Tuesday against two right-wing television channels, alleging they aided the spread of baseless conspiracy theories about its role in the 2020 election.

    The lawsuits, which are the latest in a string of legal action from the company, name Newsmax and One America News as defendants. The lawsuit against OAN also named two of the network's far-right personalities, Chanel Rion and Christina Bobb, as well as the network's owners, Robert and Charles Herring.

    John Poulos, the chief executive of Dominion, said in a statement that the networks "disregarded the truth when they spread lies in November" and that they "continue to do so today."

    In the immediate aftermath of the 2020 election, then-President Trump falsely asserted that the election had been rigged against him. His media allies promoted outlandish conspiracy theories about Dominion to support Trump's false claims.

    In its lawsuit against Newsmax, Dominion said that the channel "created an entire brand out of defaming" the company. And in its lawsuit against OAN, Dominion said that for the right-wing channel, "facts did not matter."

    "What mattered was feeding the audience the alternate reality OAN had helped create and its audience now expected — even if it was spreading false information," Dominion said in its 213- complaint in the District of Columbia District Court. "And the race to the bottom began in earnest, dragging Dominion down with it."

    Specifically in regards to OAN, Dominion pointed to a film by MyPillow chief executive Mike Lindell that promoted election conspiracy theories about the voting tech company.

    Dominion asked for at least $1.6 billion in each of its lawsuits against OAN and Newsmax. Poulos said that the "barrage of lies" promoted about the company has caused "severe damage to our company, customers, and employees."

    Facebook removes Russian network that targeted influencers to peddle anti-vax messages


    Facebook said on Tuesday it had removed a network of accounts from Russia that it linked to a marketing firm which aimed to enlist influencers to push anti-vaccine content about the Covid-19 jabs.

    The social media company said it had banned accounts connected to Fazze, a subsidiary of UK-registered marketing firm AdNow, which primarily conducted its operations from Russia, for violating its policy against foreign interference. Facebook said the campaign used its platforms primarily to target audiences in India, Latin America and, to a smaller extent, the United States.

    The company's investigators called the campaign a "disinformation laundromat," creating misleading articles and petitions on forums like Reddit, Medium and Change.org, and using fake accounts on platforms like Facebook and Instagram to amplify the content. Facebook said while the majority of the campaign fell flat, the crux of it appeared to be engaging with paid influencers and these posts attracted "some limited attention."

    False claims and conspiracy theories about Covid-19 and its vaccines have proliferated on social media sites in recent months. Major tech firms like Facebook have been criticized by US lawmakers and President Joe Biden's administration, who say the spread of online lies about vaccines is making it harder to fight the pandemic.

    Facebook said the Russia-linked operation started with the creation of batches of fake accounts in 2020, likely originating from account farms in Bangladesh and Pakistan, which posed as being based in India. It said the network posted memes and comments on its platforms in November and December 2020 claiming the AstraZeneca Covid-19 vaccine would turn people into chimpanzees, often using scenes from the 1968 "Planet of the Apes" movie.

    YouTube suspends US Senator Rand Paul for seven days


    Sen. Rand Paul, a Kentucky Republican, has been suspended from YouTube for seven days over a video claiming that masks are ineffective in fighting Covid-19, according to a YouTube spokesperson.

    "This resulted in a first strike on the channel, which means it can't upload content for a week, per our longstanding three strikes policy," the spokesperson said. "We apply our policies consistently across the platform, regardless of speaker or political views, and we make exceptions for videos that have additional context such as countervailing views from local health authorities."

    Paul criticized the decision by YouTube in a tweet on Tuesday.

    The suspension comes on the same day that Twitter banned Georgia Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene's account for one week following another violation of the platform's rules.

    Everyone is on the mask/vax for kids, but if they look at the facts... masks and vax's don't help kids.
    Hyperbole from the left.

    No media is worth any trust for me. All of them are either controlled by the government or the billionaires.
