Serious question: Will MSM ratings suffer without Trump? Regardless of your political views, these networks went all out on Trump and he was an easy target. Even if there was a normal Republican in presidency in 2020, I think the networks would suffer.  I think CNN went all out Anti Trump and may have lost people who viewers long term who used to view it as a the true neutral network.

*...these networks went all out on Trump because he made himself a target by doing and saying terrible things that are unbecoming and shameful to the office of presidency. Pls fix


Yes and we will all benefit from less Trump.


Yes the MSM ratings will drop. They benefited from Trump creating a news cycle every six hours with his tweets.


It doesn't matter for CNN and MSNBC because they are part of huge media companies with literally hundreds of channels. If folks aren't watching CNN, Viacom will just get more viewers on their other networks. It's not a zero sum game. The ONLY news channel that cares about ratings is Fox News because News Corp only has news channels. They are the ones who stoke people's fears to keep them watching so that sweet, sweet MyPillow ad money can keep on rolling in.


What would be a natural network?

Way too late for that, just got to roll with it now.

If the people you’re talking about went to OAN, who the hell cares? The “mainstream” media should not join the trend of inventing their own news to ensure the viewers hear stories they like and agree with.

Told an intern at my firm in a different group that reached out to try and join my team that he should be prepared to work 60-70 hours. He smugly laughed and said everyone he knows at our firm works that many hours (we are a B4 and it’s certainly not the case). Then he proceeded to tell me he leads a 10 person workstream. Then he asked me to refer him to managers to get him transitioned into our group. Posting so others can also get a kick out of this.
