Surely, conservatives recall when the condescending prick that is Anderson Cooper mocked the anti-tax tea bagging protests with his "It's hard to talk when you're teabagging" line on air last month. Well, it's good to know that Cooper has now officially joined the long list of biased, anti-conservative nutjobs pretending to be objective journalists that no one wants to watch:
SINCE President Obama took office in January, CNN has seen its ratings drop. And one reason has to do with Campbell Brown. The host of "No Bias, No Bull" has been on maternity leave for the past month, and in her absence, the show with substitute host Roland Martin has nose-dived. Sources say he has complained the network doesn't promote him enough or book him high-profile guests.
But the biggest disappointment has been the cable channel's big, silver-haired hope, Anderson Cooper.
The former host of "Celebrity Mole" should be happy he signed a multimillion-dollar, multiyear contract with CNN last year during the presidential race, when ratings were at an all-time high. If his contract were up now, Cooper would probably have to settle for far less.
The ratings have plunged for his show, "Anderson Cooper 360," since Obama's inauguration, and the drop in May has been steeper, especially in the coveted 25-54 demographic, where he's down nearly 30 percent from the previous month, averaging less than 250,000 demo viewers.
Tuesday night, Cooper raked in only 615,000 viewers overall. But it wasn't his slowest night ever -- that was May 8, when he clocked in a lousy 499,000 viewers.
