CNN Loses Millions Of Readers, Ranking Drops On Alexa [Opinion]

For decades, CNN ruled the web, but it looks like the media monarch will lose its throne soon.

According to some, the channel is not what it used to be, and it’s a “big letdown.”

Recently, the legendary Carl Bernstein, the journalist who broke the Watergate Scandal in the 1970s, suggested that CNN should focus on “real stories.”

A case in point is Kellyanne Conway’s recent reference to “microwaves turning into cameras.”

Although President Trump’s counsellor made it clear that she made a generic remark about surveillance—something she read about in an article, CNN called the legendary Carl Bernstein — a man who is an inspiration to thousands of journalists — to dissect Conway’s comments.

Bernstein may not be a Trump ally, but he has always focused on real issues that affected American citizens.

When CNN anchor Don Lemon showed him the clip of Conway’s microwave interview, Bernstein dismissed it, saying her remarks shouldn’t be taken seriously.

“It’s not silly, it’s dangerous… the extent to which we take it seriously. We need to keep doing our reporting on the real stories, including what’s going on with the Russians, with Trump… the people around him,” Bernstein insisted.
