CNN Politics Presents: "Girls on the Bus"

During the 1972 election, Timothy Crouse penned “The Boys on the Bus” – a book that introduced us to the gritty (mostly male) journalists on the campaign trail.  Over four decades later, the daily grind of election may be the same, but the faces have certainly changed.  

Hear from CNN’s top political team Dana Bash, Gloria Borger, Ashley Killough, Sara Murray, Maeve Reston, S.E. Cupp and more as they explore their experiences — both at work and home — covering the 2016 election.

Almost President: The Agony of Defeat to Air on CNN on Sept. 14

ALMOST PRESIDENT: THE AGONY OF DEFEAT TO AIR ON CNN ON WEDNESDAY, September 14th

CNN SPECIAL REPORT HOSTED BY CNN CHIEF POLITICAL ANALYST GLORIA BORGER

WASHINGTON, D.C. – August. 23, 2016 – In Almost President, CNN Chief Political Analyst Gloria Borger tells a story that has not been told before: four men, sharing their accounts of how they lived through the most public failure in American life.  Mitt Romney, John McCain, Michael Dukakis, and Walter Mondale detail their journeys – from years of reaching the pinnacle of American politics, their moments of greatest triumph, all the way to the moment that each man knew – in one night – it was all over.

In a series of interviews that took place over the last three years, each candidate analyzes his own mistakes, the impact on their families, the pain of knowing they will always be branded as ‘almost president.' By and large, they’re still not over it, but they would all do it all over again.

CNN Exclusive: Sen. Collins on not supporting Trump: "The tipping point for me was his attack on the Khans"

In her first TV interview since revealing that she is not supporting Donald Trump, Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) talks exclusively with Special Correspondent Jamie Gangel, stating, “The tipping point for me was his attack on the Khans.  When he showed absolutely no empathy or compassion for their terrible loss and instead attacked the two gold star parents, and also attacked their religion.  That was just the final straw for me.” When asked if she’d vote for Hillary Clinton, Sen. Collins responded, “I really don't anticipate voting for Hillary.”

TEXT HIGHLIGHTS:

On when she decided she wasn’t going to support Donald Trump:

“The tipping point for me was his attack on the Khans.  When he showed absolutely no empathy or compassion for their terrible loss and instead attacked the two gold star parents, and also attacked their religion.  That was just the final straw for me.”

On why she is not supporting Donald Trump:

“Donald Trump, in my judgment, would make a perilous world even more dangerous.  I worry that his tendency to lash out and his ill-informed comments would cause dangerous events to escalate and possibly spin out of control at a time when our world is beset with conflict.”

CNN BEATS FOX NEWS IN PRIME TIME DEMOS — AGAIN!

CNN BEATS FOX NEWS IN PRIME TIME DEMOS — AGAIN!

CNN Has Now Topped Fox in Prime Time for 6 of the Last 11 Months

CNN is within 5% of Fox for the Month in Total Day Demos

New Day Crushes MSNBC’s Morning Joe in Crucial Political Month

CNN was the top-rated cable news network in July in prime time. This was the sixth time in the last 11 months that CNN has beaten Fox News in adults 25-54 in prime time. The last time CNN had that many wins over Fox News in prime time in any 11-month period was 14 years ago. CNN’s win came in a month of major news – the two political conventions, attacks on police in Dallas and Baton Rouge, an attempted coup in Turkey and terror attacks in France and Germany – once again proving that CNN is the clear choice when news happens.

July was CNN’s second most-watched month in prime time in eight years and the network is on track to have its most-watched year ever.

CNN pulled within 5% percent of Fox for the month in total day demos, the smallest gap (tied with October 2008) between the two networks in over eight years (since February 2008).

Among all cable networks, not just news, CNN was the second most-watched in total viewers for the month in prime time and number five among adults 25-54. FULL POST
