I wonder why this is happening to CNN? It couldn’t be because they have become so ridiculously biased. I can see why they are stumped on what to do next. Maybe adding someone like Harry Belafonte would help or trying to get Keith Olbermann. Hmmm Wish I could come up with a good idea for them.

Fox News Has Best January Ever
Fox News had all 13 of the top cable news shows in total viewers for the fifth month in a row in January, and had the best January in its history.
Fox was up 22 percent in total viewers in January compared to January 2009, and up an extraordinary 51 percent in the key 25-to-54 demographic.
CNN was down 34 percent in total viewers in January compared to the previous year, and MSNBC was down 26 percent.
Fox dominated its rivals in covering the major political event of the month, Republican Scott Brown’s victory in the Massachusetts special election for Ted Kennedy’s Senate seat, mediaite.com reported.
Fox was also helped by Sarah Palin, who joined the network as an analyst and drew 3.95 million viewers for her first appearance on “The O’Reilly Factor” on Jan. 12.
For the month, Fox averaged 2.94 million prime-time viewers, compared to 946,000 for CNN and 838,000 for MSNBC, according to Nielsen.
CNN topped MSNBC in weekday prime-time viewers during January for the first time in six months, helped by its comprehensive coverage of earthquake-ravaged Haiti.
And MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann slipped to third in his time slot behind Bill O’Reilly on Fox and HLN’s Nancy Grace.
