CNN Battles Ratings Woes

CNN, with its ratings down sharply since the 2008 election, is drawing questions over whether its neutral strategy can compete with opinionated shows on Fox News and MSNBC, Politico reports.

CNN President Jon Klein dismisses the concern, telling the publication, “It’s the oldest trick in the book to trot out over-the-top hosts and put them on a cable-news show."
