CNN is a liberal leaning News station which gained popularity in the 90’s and has since lost it’s leading role in news to Fox News. During the presidential race in 2016 it was no secret that CNN was supporting Clinton. It tried to do everything it could to sway the elections. Having lost much of its credibility for fair news reporting CNN is now considered by many as fodder for jokes.
Jake Tapper and Chris Coumo were among the many anchors who wore their disdain of Trump and conservatism on their sleeves during the elections. It is no secret that they, among others, are responsible for the fall of CNN as the most watched news station.
The leader of news stations in America is now Fox News and has been for some time.
