60-Minutes loses-69%-on the viewers with Obama last Sunday compare to the previous week.

I hope this translate into Obama opposition votes I the next election


ou would think that scoring a one-on-one interview with the President of the USA right after he kinda sorta declared war would provide a big ratings boost. But not if the POTUS — like his dog and pony show of a kinda sorta war — is an unfunny joke that the American public has tuned out:

CBS’ Sunday lineup fell from last week. […T]he drop was steepest at 7 PM, with 60 Minutes (1.1) off by 69% from last Sunday[…].

That’s quite a plunge. Apparently no one cared to hear Obama tell self-serving lies to obsequious soft baller Steve Kroft.

But at least the liberal media establishment that hyped him into power still backs him:

The sympathetic news media is avoiding mentioning his name, instead they are blaming the lack of a football intro for the massive collapse in ratings Sunday night for President Barack Obama’s appearance on CBS’ 60 Minutes. Americans turned away from watching Obama even though he was being interviewed about the nation’s new war on ISIS. […]

A gold star goes to Hal Boedeker at the Orlando Sentinel for apparently being the only reporter to mentioned Obama in reporting on 60 Minutes’ ratings however he did not mention the huge ratings drop. […]

Change Obama to Bush and one can imagine how the media would have been reporting the 60 Minutes ratings collapse: Americans Tune out Bush as He Drags U.S. in Another War.

Reports could either mention the 60 Minutes rating collapse or mention that it featured Obama. Mentioning both would be racist.
