Hilarious: 11 Obscure Things More Popular Than Fake News CNN

On Tuesday, Newsbusters’ Bill D’Agostino informed us that CNN’s ratings are going in the toilet, despite the non-stop coverage of Donald Trump’s sham Soviet-style hush money trial in New York.  In fact, things are so bad for the liberal propaganda outlet these days that there are more “professional” psychics working in America than there are CNN viewers this week in the 25-54 year-old demographic.


He cited the New York Post, which reported there were 83,000 viewers during the week of May 13-19 from 8 to 11 p.m., its lowest-rated week since 1991, according to Nielsen.


Will this presidential election be the most important in American history?

D’Agostino put together a list of 11 “weird and esoteric things” that are more popular than CNN:

1) Competitive Rubik’s Cube solvers registered with the World Cube Association.

The World Cube Association is a volunteer-led 501(c)(3) organization at the heart of the “speedcubing” world. They host a surprising amount of tournaments every year, as well as a biennial world championship. In total, the WCA has over 200,000 registered competitors.

2) Professional psychics working in America.

There are 96,000 of them. Please note that professional is not a synonym for competent. Incidentally, CNN employs hundreds of professional journalists.

3) People with heterochromia in the United States.

There are more than 200,000 people in the U.S. whose left and right eyes are different colors. This means you’re more than twice as likely to know somebody with this rare condition as you are to have a friend or family member between 25 and 54 who watches CNN on weeknights. Now think about how many people you know with heterochromia. Yeah.

4) Participants in a 1988 conga line in Miami.

This one didn’t sound real to us, but the source is none other than the Guinness Book of World Records. On the fateful day of March 13, 1988, a whopping 119,986 people gathered in Miami for some weird record-breaking fun.

5) Once-critically endangered wild Bighorn Sheep living in North America.

The exact figure is the subject of debate, but according to the American Wild Sheep Foundation, the wild bighorn sheep population has climbed to a respectable 85,000 in recent years, from a low of just 25,000 in 1977. That’s a big W for the conservationists, and a pretty wild L for CNN.

6) Attendees of a women’s volleyball match in Nebraska last year.

In August of last year, a regular season NCAA women’s volleyball match between Omaha and Nebraska attracted more than 92,000 spectators. The event broke the world record for highest attendance of any women’s sporting event.

There’s more:

7) Registered bicycle rickshaws in New Delhi.

8) Tennis balls thrown out per day in the U.S.

9) Annual breast reduction patients in America.

10) Female professional forklift operators.

11) Subscribers to a YouTube channel called “Justin Y” which has never uploaded a single video.

“Justin Y currently boasts 784,000 subscribers,” D’Agostino explained.  “Even if only half of those subscribers are between 25 and 54, that still means that watching nothing is several times more appealing than watching CNN during primetime.”
