Last place CNN’s already humiliating ratings nosedived by double digits last week. Even more than usual, some ten days ago the far-left CNN launched a 24/7 jihad against President Trump, going so far as to question his mental health, his patriotism, blaming him for a mass murder in New Zealand, and serial lying about his response to Charlottesville. But this unhinged hate campaign obviously turned off a considerable number of Americans.When compared to this same week last year, CNN lost -16 percent of its primetime viewers and -17 of total day viewers; young people ran away screaming: In the advertiser-coveted 25-54 age demo, CNN shed an incredible -31 percent of those viewers during primetime and -29 percent in total day. CNN’s numbers look especially bad when compared to its direct competition during this same time period. Fox News, which nearly triples CNN in primetime viewers and more than doubles CNN in total day viewers, held almost perfectly steady with a one percent … [Read more...] about Nolte: CNN’s Trump Hatred Results in Double Digit Rating Collapse

Over 1 million American households took the plunge in the third quarter of last year. In the fourth quarter, the total number of pay-TV households dropped 4.1 percent.

The average cable bill, per Fortune magazine, was $107 in 2018, but if you want any sort of extras, premium services, specialty tiers, or extra cable boxes, the cost can escalate quickly.

Produced by Lourdes Aguiar Betty Jones and her friend Kathryn Crigler were brutally attacked on Labor Day in 1990 after answering a knock on the door at Crigler's Starkville, Miss., home. Jones, who opened the door, was stabbed immediately and died. Crigler, who was in a wheelchair, was in the rear of the home. The killer walked back to Crigler's room, raped her, strangled her and left her for dead. Crigler was able to crawl to a phone and call for help. She died two months later. Starkville detective Bill Lott says the crime scene "was as bad as anything Jack the Ripper ever did." "It's frustrating," Lott told "48 Hours" correspondent Richard Schlesinger this past summer of not yet having solved the crime. "Yeah, it's frustrating, no doubt about it." The case, which was unsolved for three decades, prompted Betty Jones' step-grandson, Jason B. Jones, to spotlight the case in a podcast. Jones, who was 10 at the time of the murders, launched his podcast in September 2017 as a way to … [Read more...] about Podcast spotlights Mississippi double murder – can new DNA technology solve the cold case?
