CNN’s 7-hour climate change debate finishes last among cable viewers

CNN’s 7-hour climate change debate finishes last among cable viewers

It was extreme overload, by extremist 2020 candidates attempting to out-do one another regarding the issue of climate change. Which has become the number one talking point for both the entire roster of Presidential contenders along with CNN, hoping that the 7-hour long-marathon town hall telecast Wednesday night, would force the issue of climate change to the forefront of a national debate, rather then at the current 6 to 9% (depending on the polls), as the most important issue concerning voters going into 2020.

Nevertheless, CNN dedicated the entire evening to climate change, and for its trouble ended up dead last among cable watchers, with a dismal 1.1 million viewers tuning in from 5 p.m. to midnight, the hours devoted to back-to-back town halls by 10 Democratic contenders.

By contrast, MSMBC came in at around 1.7 million viewers, and Fox of course once again dominated with 2.5 million viewers. Perhaps, even more, telling both cable networks didn’t change their regular program scheduling on Wednesday night

The overrated hyped spectacle by CNN proved once again how disconnected the cable network is from even their most avid viewers. By once again miscalculating the key issues concerning the voting public who consider the issues of the economy, immigration, healthcare, foreign policy and gun violence, more important than climate change.

Not even their top anchors like Blitzer, Burnett, Cooper, Cuomo, and Lemon, along with chief climate correspondent Bill Weir, could salvage the miscalculation by CNN honcho Jeff Zucker investing 7-hours of airtime on an issue that barely makes the top 10 issues, for the majority of voters.

In fact, a recent Yale University Poll conducted early in 2018 ranked climate change as the 15th most important issue in voting when asked about a total of 28 voting issues in the poll.

Moreover aside from the over-hyped issue, 2020 hopefuls took turns in raveling just how irrational and completely unhinged they’ve become in solving this dubious crisis.

The players included: Former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julián Castro, tech entrepreneur Andrew Yang, Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.), former Vice President Joe Biden. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg (D), former Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-Texas) and Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.).

Zucker perhaps hoping to reclaim some of his viewing audience was well above his average in primetime regardless of CNN coming in last among the 3-competing cable news stations, during the 8 p.m.-11 p.m. hours of prime time.

Fox News once again dominated averaging 3.2 million total viewers, placing first. MSNBC was second with a 2.2 million average and CNN third with 1.4 million.

Although the ratings were dismal for CNN, the zany candidates did indeed make the news, well after the 7-hour marathon was over, with their preposterous schemes airing all over mainstream media in how they would combat climate change.

First up (not necessarily in any order) was South Bend Mayor Buttigieg declaring the climate change is greater than World War II, moreover today’s enemy aren’t the Nazi’s or the Japanese, but good old grade A-beef.

Buttigieg declared with a straight face, that if you eat hamburgers or use straws, you are “part of the problem.” Thus declaring war on beef, and by extension farting cows.

However the lunicity didn’t stop there, in fact it just began with Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) threatening to suspend the filibuster to enact Alexandria Ocasio Cortez’s “Green New Deal,” that would in effect ban air travel along with the combustion engine.

Andrew Yang suggested a car buy-back program and wants to ban all commercial air travel.

And then there was sleepy Joe Biden declaring”We’ve got to shut down” all coal-fueled power plants, reminiscent of  Hillary Clinton’s infamous threat, to coal-producing states, “We Are Going To Put A Lot Of Coal Miners & Coal Companies Out Of Business”

All-in-all, it was quite a show, and certainly a wake-up call for voters, who are thriving under the Trump economy, moreover a reminder of what’s in store if one of these loony-birds actually becomes President…say goodbuy to you’re “Quarter-pounder” hamburger or the ability to even drive to your favorite steak joint.

    I guess I’m a problem, I just left Wendy’s after scarfing down a double cheeser made with real beef, not plants. I also swilled down a carbonated soda off gassing gobs of Co2 through, OMFG,a nice, thick plastic straw.

        Sure it is SO STOP THROWING YOUR CRAP out your car window or into the street like I see SO MANY young woke libs doing. I have a new thought for y’all….common sense. You don’t need to ban everything; just behave responsibly and use uncommon sense.
        I’ve yet to see a single “protest” by young woke liberals and progressives that didn’t leave the area afterwards a total trash heap. All talk no walk.

        In the 70’s the left said we were going to have an ice age. Then they said we were going to burn up. Now they call it “climate change” and the nasty old U.S. needs to fix it. Seriously, do you really think the U.S. can fix the climate? We could all live in a hut and that will not happen. I want clean air and water but I am not interested in destroying our county in the name of “climate change”

    What everybody needs to know is:

    Record temperatures that were set in the first quarter of the last Century still have not been broken.

    WHY is that?

      What is your source? The following is from the website Skeptical Science:

      “Although there was a significant increase in global temperature in the early 20th Century, the rate of warming from 1910 to 1940 was lower than the rate of warming from 1975 to 2005, at about 1.3 vs. 1.8°C per century, respectively.”
