Earlier Tuesday we ran a post on the great controversy of Fox News’ Tucker Carlson saying the air that MSNBC’s Chris Hayes “is what every man would be” if feminists had absolute power.
Which is a great line.
It didn’t seem to tickle CNN media guy Brian Stelter, who seems to do nothing else at night other than watch what Fox News is broadcasting and then complain about it; yet he seemed taken aback that one prime time host would ridicule a rival on another network.

Who would attack Chris Hayes on his anniversary? That’s cold.
But back to the point: CNN is — as always — watching Fox News like everybody else who owns a TV and noticing a change in advertisers during “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”
Over the last month, Tucker Carlson's commercial breaks have had only a smattering of ads from lesser-known brands. It might be a new normal for the Fox News host, who has endured ad boycott campaigns since he made racist remarks on immigrants in December. https://t.co/Ac9sfcYiaS pic.twitter.com/O9GNUKxmyr

“Tucker Carlson’s commercial breaks have had only a smattering of ads from lesser-known brands” — this is what the kids call “concern trolling.” The harsh truth, though, is that those lesser-known brands won’t be lesser-known for long if they keep advertising during Carlson’s show, because people watch Carlson’s show.
His program still beats CNN. What does THAT say??!!

Tuckers adds pull quadruple the revenue than the top CNN broadcast. If there is a story here I guess this is it.

This is so petty and one of the MANY reasons why he will continue to dominate all other programs. BTW… no one actually believes he is a racist. Except @CNN and the few viewers you have left. Good Luck continuing along this path.

More people see Tucker in one day than they see the average @CNN show in a week. That is a 5 to 1 brutal ratings smackdown 52 weeks a year.

CNN is tanking. Sit down.

HAHAHAHA!!!! Really? So CNN as a news network is “reporting” on another news network to what, try to reduce their ratings? What a bunch of dipswitches.

CNN’s primetime ratings are lower than reruns of Ancient Aliens !
What does that say about CNN’s ability to generate ad revenue – pic.twitter.com/tAYeNmRwyD

He is TROUNCING all 3 shows back to back in the and timesl skit and still ahead by a few hundred thousand viewers…is that why you are going after him? What a bunch of pathetic losers you guys at CNN have become.
— idigitalmultimedia (@idigitalmultime) April 3, 2019
This makes me laugh. CNN so desperate because Tucker is destroying them in the ratings that they try to get ad space boycotts. Truly sad.
