So well deserved! CNN's primetime ratings hit 30 year low! [View all]

This according to Ron Filipkowski on twitter, who also points out that one of the most common refrains on RW social media is "even CNN agrees with us!"

So this should put to bed the idea I hear expressed here and elsewhere that CNN is leaning right for ratings. Their ratings began tanking after they did their pep rally with a stacked audience for cheato and continue to sink. They've had time to adjust and they obviously aren't interested.
