CNN Slides Again: Hannity Clobbers Morgan

By on 5.31.12 | 2:12PM

Ouch.

The CNN folks are really on the skids.

But you have to love the way the liberal media portrays this.

Over at the HuffPo is this story acknowledging that CNN just posted its worst numbers in 20 years. (20 years!)

After running the numbers, the low for CNN, the fact that MSNBC is ahead of CNN… the story finally gets around to saying the Number One network is… drumroll… Fox News.  Which is beating the pants off of MSNBC and CNN combined.

But there’s even more here in the humor department.

The story says that things are “especially bad” in the 9 p.m. slot for Larry King’s much touted successor Piers Morgan.  It cites Morgan’s atrocious numbers and yada yada.

But what’s missing in this story? Hmmmmmmmmmm. Let us think. I’m sure we can come up with the name of He Who Shall Not Be Mentioned.

Yes! Got it! Hannity somebody! Slim… Sam….Steve… no… wait! Sean! That’s it!  Sean Hannity!

Why is this? Why would Sean Hannity's name be completely absent from a news story explaining that his competition is getting clobbered… but not saying who, exactly, is doing the winning?

We report you decide. And one more thing.

Yes, Hannity is THE place to go for a discussion of conservatism.

But there’s something else. In fact Hannity regularly has liberals on the show… drawing them out on their ideas, challenging them to defend their beliefs etc.

Hello? How hard is this to figure out that this is both good television and good serious discussion? Moving the nation’s political conversation forward, as it were, five nights a week.

Apparently this is too hard for CNN these days.

So Piers Morgan and CNN slowly fade to black. And Hannity is re-signed by Fox.

And the HuffPo can’t quite bring itself to tell you why one event is connected to the other.
