CNN DROPS TO LAST PLACE AMONG CABLE NEWS NETWORKS: CNN, which invented the cable news network more than two decades ago, will hit a new competitive low with its prime-time programs in October, finishing fourth and last among the cable news networks with the audience that all the networks rely on for their advertising.Hence why  the cause-drawn mogul has become increasingly critical of CNN’s “tabloid” attitude and again says that he would like to see the channel, which he founded in 1980, increase its international news coverage. Or, at least, stop featuring so much “fluff.

The official monthly numbers will be finalized at 4 p.m. Monday and will include results from Friday. CNN executives conceded that will not change the competitive standing for the month. CNN will still be last in prime time.
