Today CNN’s Anderson Cooper appeared on Howard Stern, who will soon be returning to America’s Got Talent. Cooper opened up about his own brother’s suicide, growing up rich and Megyn Kelly’s Fox News.
Howard started the interview off with a bang, when he asked Cooper why ratings at CNN were so low, and why Fox News continues to dominate the ratings:
“I do think in cable news, the networks that have strong opinions-so whether you are a conservative network like Fox or a liberal network like MSNC-when there’s not a huge news story going on, they’re entertaining and that’s what people tune into.”
“It seems CNN has done well when there is some big news happening and people are tuning in to see what is going on. It’s a difficult place to be in when there isn’t a major news story going on.”
