Carmelo Anthony was on the “Million Dollars Worth of Game podcast” with Gillie and Wallo. During his sit-down conversation, Melo spoke about former NBA commissioner David Stern who informed him that the NBA knows everything about him. Including the people in his circle.
“I know who you with. I know where you live at; I know where they live at. I know when you close your eyes, I know when you wake up.” Carmelo said about Stern.
Melo confirmed something that many people suspected for quite some time, professional athletes are watched by the powers that be. So many athletes get into trouble with the law consistently, and it is blasted all over the news for weeks if not months. On the flip side, some athletes get into trouble, and you don’t hear a peep, and their stories never make it to the headlines. It is safe to say that with all of the money that is invested in these athletes that their lives are more than likely heavily monitored by some very powerful people lurking in the shadows
CNN has seen its ratings fall into the toilet bowl after Trump stepped out of the White House. They no longer have their boogeyman to keep them afloat. And they are tanking. They have become one of the most trusted news networks to an absolute joke. In fact, some people actually give credence to what a standup comedian has to say, than anything reported on CNN. But this is a result of 5 years of fake news airing 24 hours a day.
According to Nielson data, CNN could not crack 1 million viewers in 53 out of 92 days. OUTKICK reports, CNN has lost 50% of its viewership in primetime slots when compared to the summer of 2020.
Losing credibility is no way to keep an audience tuned in when claiming to be a news source. As I have stated before, Trump may not have drained the swamp, but he damn sure exposed the media. If Trump didn’t do anything else while he was in office, he showed the world how mainstream media twists stories to fit a particular narrative and how the fake news media tend to race-bait, using minorities, particularly African Americans, as pawns on the chessboard.
Yes, CNN may have won the battle of getting Trump out of the White House. But at what cost? How long will it take for CNN, MSNBC, FOX News, etc., to regain the American people’s trust? My guess is at some point, these networks CNN in particular will have to change their lineup of primetime hosts at least.
