     Ratings-challenged CNN remains mired in third place behind rivals Fox News and MSNBC despite the ongoing war between Israel and Hamas.  Fox leads because of less misinformation, more disclosure of facts and honesty in reporting.
     The cable news channel attracted an average of 619,000 viewers — with just 134,750 in the advertiser-coveted 25-54 age demographic, according to the latest Nielsen figures.  The ratings were a fraction of the more than 2 million viewers who tuned into Fox and the 1.7 million amassed by MSNBC, the data show.  Fox also won the key demo race with 260,375 viewers, while MSNBC drew 157,750.
     CNN’s primetime viewership continues to be a weak spot for the network. Its top stars — Anderson Cooper, Kaitlan Collins and Abby Phillip — manage to attract an audience less than one-fourth the size of their counterparts on Fox News — Jesse Watters, Sean Hannity, and Greg Guttfeld. Second-place MSNBC’s primetime stars also manage to quadruple the audience at CNN, which brought in former New York Times chief Mark Thompson to run the network after the disastrous reign of Chris Licht. Thompson took the helm on Oct. 9, two days after Hamas terrorists invaded Israel and killed more than 1,400 people.

          CNN can't get more than 100k people under 55 to watch *in prime time* as a major war is underway in which Americans have substantial interest. They can't even get 500,000 total to watch in prime time. Just a complete and well-deserved collapse despite huge corporate promotion:
