Donald Trump offered the media five words of advice to increase their ratings and gain more viewers

Media outlets like CNN, MSNBC, The Washington Post, and The New York Times are struggling to remain profitable.

Several outlets are making severe budget cuts and laying off employees. 

But Donald Trump just offered the media five words of advice to increase their ratings and gain more viewers.

Donald Trump warned the media that they needed him to get re-elected in 2020 to remain in business.

“But I think ABC, CBS, NBC, The Times, they’re all going to endorse me,” Trump joked at the time. “Because if they don’t, they’re going out of business,” he continued, before asking “can you imagine if you didn’t have me?”

Trump’s prediction turned out to be correct.

After hitting a record for ratings during the 2020 election, after Trump left office CNN dropped to its lowest ratings in history in 2022.

MSNBC, The Washington Post, and The New York Times, and other media outlets are also struggling now that Trump is no longer in office.

CNN’s new network President Chris Licht is trying to make changes to boost ratings by swapping out hosts and rearranging the daily lineup.

But Donald Trump has a suggestion for the media on one way to rebuild their audience and increase their ratings.

In a series of videos posted to his Truth Social platform, Trump pointed out how the media is “doing really, really badly and closing up shop all over the place.”

“The fake news media like CNN, MSDNC – which is sometimes referred to as MSNBC – the Washington Compost – which is sometimes referred to as the Washington Post – and the failing New York Times are doing really, really badly and closing up shop all over the place,” Trump said.

“CNN is shuttering its longtime headquarters building and the money-losing Washington Post is being peddled all over to see whether or not somebody wants to buy it,” Trump continued, before adding that “in the meantime they’re firing massive numbers of people.”

Trump said the media is responsible for the massive decline in ratings, as “not reporting with credibility has its consequences.”

“It’s very simple; no ratings equals no money,” Trump added. “They got no money because they have no ratings.”

But not all hope is lost for the media.

Along with his criticism, Trump offered the media a solution to increasing their ratings and becoming a profitable business once again.

“If they’d cover the news fairly, accurately, with a passion for our country, this wouldn’t be happening to the Washington Post,” Trump said. “People don’t want fake news.”

Trump is right.

Polls show a record number of Americans distrust the media to report the truth.

And the decline in ratings reflects this growing distrust of the media among the American public.
