CNN's Crumbling Audience

The New York Times article today details the further decline of CNN's audience and the continued rise of Fox News.

I would have guessed an uptick after the Haiti earthquake, but instead CNN dropped.  Typically people turn to CNN on big stories, but Fox News doing very little Haitian coverage was not only ideologically suspect, but apparently a good "tv" move as well. 

The shrinking television news audience continues to migrate away from hard news and toward opinion.
