That CNN would declare Bob Tyrrell persona non grata and withdraw its invitation to him, of course, says a great deal more about CNN than it does about the esteemed Mr. Tyrrell.
As Jeff Lord notes, CNN is barely afloat in the ratings. But even that doesn’t describe just how bad things are at CNN. From March 2011 to March 2012, CNN lost a staggering 50% of its viewers. That’s right! CNN lost half its audience in a year.
So perhaps we here at TAS can count this development as a blessing in disguise. If CNN hadn’t cancelled and Bob went on as scheduled would there have been anyone watching?
