CNN Loses 7 MILLION Visitors to CNN.COM

As we have been reporting here, CNN is becoming a disaster.  Their viewership on TV is degrading and is dead last in almost all programming hours. Even Fox News' Red Eye program which airs at 3AM EST beats CNN 8PM primetime programming in demographics.  Embarrassing.  But now, there's more.  CNN has, over the course of the last 8 months, lost over 7,000,000 unique visitors to their website.  That means that the 7 million people who were visiting their website, are now, not.  Where'd they go?

Take a look at the data we received from (Compete, Inc.), a website that monitors and documents traffic to literally all websites on the internet.

With journalism offenders at CNN such as Rick Sanchez, Don Lemon, Peter Hamby, Ed Hornick, Susan Roesgen (fired), KC Estenson (Manager), Roland Martin, TJ Holmes, Martina Stewart, and Anderson Cooper, it's no surprise that this is happening.  We also have the emergence of new media: blogs, social networking, and new news websites that are popping up all over the place. For instance The Daily Caller, which in just the last three months has attracted over half a million visitors with 1.1 million visits each month.  This of course, troubles the lamestream media organizations like the AP who has gone to such lengths as to warn its' visitors of new news websites by Conservatives.
