The liberal media’s zeal to take down President Donald Trump will doom their industry, Media Research Center (MRC) President Brent Bozell told the 2019 Western Conservative Summit in Denver, Colorado on Friday.

“What’s the future of the news media? Ladies and gentlemen, I think they’re dead,” Bozell told his audience, predicting that the media’s refusal to give up their vendetta against Trump will, ultimately, “cost them everything”:

“They want this man removed. They’re not going to remove him, so they want to defeat him from office – and it will cost them everything.

“I’m asked: ‘What’s the future of the news media?’ Ladies and gentlemen, I think they’re dead.”

Bozell cited CNN’s abysmally low audience numbers as an example of the media’s demise, noting that the cable network currently has fewer viewers than the nation has witches, pet chicken owners, and prostitutes:

“I want you to think about CNN. CNN’s numbers right now – this is on a good night – seven hundred and sixty-one thousand people, thousand people, nationwide. Now, let’s put that in perspective. That’s less than two-tenths of one percent of the American people.

“Putting it in better perspective: there are more people who own pet chickens than watch CNN.

“There are more practicing witches in America than viewers of CNN.

“And, my favorite, ladies and gentlemen: there are more prostitutes in America than there are viewers of CNN.”
