The media frenzy over a New York Times report concerning President Trump’s issues with former FBI Director James Comey has resulted in great ratings for CNN.
The report accuses President Trump of meddling in former FBI Director James Comey’s investigation into Gen. Michael Flynn and his ties to the Russians. Following the report, CNN came out at the top of the ratings chart in a coveted demographic of folks between 25-54.
