CNN spent $400 million promoting a new pay-for-news pro-government “CNN Plus” streaming network. Just 10,000 people subscribed.

CNN–the greatest contemporary embodiment of “mainstream” news–has spent the past year, and some $400 million, launching “CNN Plus.” But just 10,000 viewers weekly have subscribed to the new channel.

Viewers just won’t pay to watch worn-out, pro-government propaganda. According to Alex Jones of Infowars, the smallest radio station in a small town generally has over 10,000 listeners in a typical week.

According to Alex Jones, Infowars operates for around $27 million dollars annually and average 2 to 3 million viewers for its content.
