Former President Donald Trump has offered unsolicited advice to CNN, stating that the network’s ratings could overtake Fox News if it “ever went for ‘Trump.’”
This suggestion comes after he accused the Fox network of “aiding and abetting the destruction of America with fake news.” Fox CEO Rupert Murdoch positioned himself on Trump’s bad side when he reportedly expressed disbelief in Trump’s claims of voter fraud in the 2020 presidential election.
The real enmity, however, started when the network soft-banned him while allowing other Republicans onto the show.
“If they ever went for ‘Trump,’ they would take over from Fox News,” Trump wrote on his Truth Social platform. “Otherwise, they will NEVER make it!”
For years, CNN has been a leader in the cable news industry, offering viewers the latest news and investigative reporting. However, lately, the network has been facing its lowest ratings in over a decade and is now experimenting with a new approach to revive its primetime slot.
This includes interviews with prominent public figures, town-hall events, and special reports, as well as hiring prominent comics, comedians, and celebrities to fill in the 9 pm hour.
CNN’s struggles reportedly began after the network removed Jeff Zucker as chief, and Chris Licht took his place, a move that led to the “tempering [of] the more partisan instincts of his primetime hosts.”
The Daily Beast reported that the network still “experimented with various panels discussing apolitical topics, as well as special town halls about relevant subjects.” Those town halls were said to have trailed when compared to the network’s other programming.
Fox News, however, leads in ratings despite revelations that some of its hosts were promoting Trump’s false conclusions about voter fraud.
Despite Trump’s towering collection of lawsuits, the ex-president is not distracted from his goal of entering the 2024 presidential race.
