Evening Newscasts Log Big Ratings Drops

Jun 24, 2009  •  Post A Comment

The three network evening newscasts had a dismal ratings week last week, with “CBS Evening News” recording 4.9 million viewers, the first time it has fallen below 5 million, the Associated Press says.

ABC’s World News” had 6.4 million viewers, and “NBC Nightly News” had 7.8 million, but both were down a half-million viewers from the previous week, according to Nielsen Media Research figures. It’s unclear whether the digital switchover is contributing to the lower figures.

    I’d guess that the lower figures are more a result of the media’s infatuation with Obama and their unwillingness to report honestly, accurately, fairly, his policies and agenda. I stopped watch all three networks as well as CNN due to that very reason. I hope they all crash and burn.
