CNN Touts Inauguration Ratings Win In Ad

What would a big TV event be without some gloating from the networks covering it?

CNN decided to laud its cable news victory over Fox News and MSNBC in an ad that appeared in the Wall Street Journal.

The ad doesn’t note that the broadcast networks came out on top during the inauguration itself, or that the channel’s ratings fell back to earth (and the network back to 3rd place) on Tuesday and Wednesday, but where would the fun be in that?

Check out the ad below.
