On Jan. 18, Truth Press reported that CNN would close its Atlanta headquarters. Yesterday, President Trump weighed in on the subject with a video response on Truth Social.
He stated, “No ratings equal no money.” Per the New York Post, CNN lost 90 percent of its viewership in 2021, and in 2022 they experienced historic lows, according to The Daily Caller.
“That’s what fake news gets you,” President Trump added in his recent video.
CNN lost much credibility when displaying an infamous headline during the 2020 George Floyd riots. It claimed: “Fiery, But Mostly Peaceful Protests After Police Shooting.”
This opened the network up to public scrutiny, per The Hill, as the devastation clearly displayed violence and destruction in Kenosha, Wisconsin, on Aug. 27, 2020.
Other major media networks were mentioned by President Trump as well. He noted MSNBC’s misfortunes, which were covered by the New York Post, and he closed with a warning for Fox News.
A conservative favorite for years, the news outlet has repeatedly criticized President Trump, especially after the 2022 midterm elections, via the New York Times.
President Trump concluded by saying, “And be careful, Fox News, don’t go that way. They’ve got failed politician Paul Ryan and RINO Karl Rove — a total loser — running things. Please be careful Fox News.”
