CNN, MSNBC Mueller coverage plummeted after he testifies

According to an analysis from the Washington Free Beacon CNN and MSNBC ‘s coverage of Robert Mueller plummetted after he testified.

Free Beacon:

Interest in Robert Mueller and the sprawling Russia investigation he oversaw for two years plummeted on MSNBC and CNN following his testimony last month, a Free Beacon analysis found.

After mentioning Mueller an average of at least 3,398 times a month on its airwaves over the past 26-and-a-half months, MSNBC broadcasts only mentioned his name 370 times in August, a decrease of more than 89 percent. CNN’s drop was even more precipitous; after his name was heard an average of at least 2,716 times a month over that same period, it fell to 177 times in August, a drop of more than 93 percent.

Overall, the word “Mueller” was uttered on MSNBC (90,001) and CNN (71,942) at least a combined 161,943 times over the 806-day period from May 17, 2017 to July 31, 2019. Click here to see a day-to-day breakdown.

If it takes about one-third of a second to say “Mueller,” it would take roughly 15 hours to say it that many times consecutively. On average, the word “Mueller” was said by someone more than 111 times a day on MSNBC and more than 89 times a day on CNN. That dropped to less than 12 times a day on MSNBC and less than six times a day on CNN in August.

Here is more on how the study was conducted:

The number is a low estimate of how often Mueller was discussed on the two left-leaning cable outlets. IQ Media monitoring service will, at times, count a word mentioned twice in the same sentence as only one mention, and there were several days where no closed captioning was available for CNN. However, the count does include times non-media personalities discussed Mueller, for instance, President Donald Trump talking about the investigator at a press conference.

More on how much they mentioned Mueller previously.

The peak of Mueller talk came in April of this year, when Mueller was mentioned at least 7,477 times on MSNBC and 6,622 times on CNN. Mueller’s report was released to the public on April 18, leading to 1,583 mentions of his name on MSNBC (830) and CNN (783) that day alone.

The Free Beacon could only find eight out of 806 days between May 17, 2017, and July 31, 2019, where MSNBC didn’t discuss Mueller at least once.

Among them were Sept. 9-10, 2017, when the network was covering Hurricane Irma; Oct. 2, 2017, when it was covering the Las Vegas massacre; and Sept. 27, 2018, when Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey Ford, who accused him of sexually assaulting her, testified in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Three were holidays: Independence Day of 2017 and Christmas Day of 2017 and 2018.

This is more proof that Mueller himself killed the Russian narrative. The bottom line is that the Mainstream Press now feels that they no longer can get any more juice out of the Russia narrative. The Media knows that the more they remind there viewers about Mueller the more they will remember that they lied to them about what he would find.
