CNN is Europe’s #1 international news brand

CNN has yet again taken #1 spot as the biggest international news brand in the annual Ipsos Affluent Survey Europe.

The independent industry research study, out today, shows that CNN reaches 35% of Europe’s elite population* every month via TV or digital platforms** – the most important audience metric for pan-regional advertisers. This is 21% ahead of Sky News, 26% ahead of the BBC and 50% ahead of euronews. All other international news brands are even further behind.

CNN is also #1 international news brand in monthly cross-platform reach amongst core audience segments of C-Suites (50% reach across Europe), Luxury Consumers (50% reach), Business Decision Makers (48% reach), High Income Earners (54% reach) and Frequent International Business Travellers (63%)***. Again – this is far ahead of all other international news competitors.

“CNN has broken boundaries, innovated and told powerful, important stories for over 35 years,” said Rani Raad, President, CNN International Commercial. “This independent study is testament to the power of our brand across TV and digital as we continue to be the go-to destination for Europe’s elite audiences. This is a momentum story that builds on impressive TV and digital figures for CNN US, multi-platform growth for CNN in Asia and independent research that shows us as #1 for international audiences across all regions who are following the US Election.”

Trump on Clinton’s “thin skin” comment: “Well, first of all, I don't have thin skin, I have very, very strong, very thick skin.  And when somebody is right about me, I always - you know, if you do a report and it's not necessarily positive but you're right, I never complain. I do complain when it's a lie or when it's wrong.  But I have a strong temperament and it's a very good temperament and it's a very in control temperament or I wouldn't have built this unbelievable company, I wouldn't have built all of the things that I've been able to do in life. I mean, number one best-sellers, one of the best-selling books of all time, tremendous television success...[TAPPER]  I don't think anyone is... [TRUMP] I've been successful. Well, wait a minute, Jake. I've been successful in every business I've been in, if you think, real estate one of the most successful.  Uh, television, "The Apprentice," which is, forget it.  I mean NBC came to me.  They wanted to renew so badly you have no idea. [TAPPER]  But what does that have to do with temperament?...... [TRUMP] Oh, you can't have that success without good temperament. And I will say this.  I was thinking about the word temperament.  And we need a strong temperament in this country.  We have been led by weak people, weak ineffective people.  Countries have taken advantage of us, whether it's militarily or otherwise.  We have been taken advantage of by everybody.  We have people with weak temperaments. I have a very strong temperament.  But I have a temperament that's totally under control.  And, you know, you - she - she mentions that I'll bring us into war.  She's the one that wanted to go into Iraq.  I mean she raised her hand.  She didn't know what the hell she was doing.  She raised her hand. I said, I don't want to go into Iraq, Iraq is going to destabilize the Middle East and I was 100 percent right.”

 

 

Trump responds to criticism of judge with Mexican heritage “….[TRUMP] Do you know that these people went to every attorney general, practically, in the country that they could and do you know this case was turned down by almost every attorney general, from Texas to Florida to many of these states? [TAPPER]  Is it not, when Hillary Clinton says this is a racist attack and you reject that, if you are saying he can't do his job because of his race, is that not the definition of racism? [TRUMP]  No, I don't think so at all. [TAPPER]  No? [TRUMP]  No.  He's proud of his heritage.  I - I respect him for that. [TAPPER]  But you're saying he can't do his job because of that. [TRUMP]  Look, he's proud of his heritage, OK.  I'm building a wall.  Now, I think I'm going to do very well with Hispanics. [TAPPER]  He's a legal citizen... [TRUMP]  You know why I'm going to do well with Hispanics? Because I'm going to bring back jobs and they're going to get jobs right now.  They're going to get jobs.  I think I'm going to do very well with Hispanics. But we're building a wall.  He's a Mexican.  We're building a wall between here and Mexico.  The answer is, he is giving us very unfair rulings, rulings that people can't even believe.  This case should have ended years ago on summary judgment.  The best lawyers - I have spoken to so many lawyers, they said this is not a case, this is a case that should have ended. [TAPPER]  I have... [TRUMP]  This judge is giving us unfair rulings. Now I say why? Well, I want to - I'm building a wall, OK, and it's a wall between Mexico, not another country...”

CNN Films to encore BLACKFISH documentary on Friday, May 27 at 9pm Eastern

Blackfish explores the extraordinary nature of Orcas and their decades-long history in captivity.  This revealing film also explores the chilling 2010 incident in which an experienced Sea World trainer was killed by the 12,000-pound Tilikum, a whale previously also associated with the deaths of two other people.

CNN Films will encore this thought-provoking documentary film on Friday, May 27 at 9:00 p.m. Eastern on CNN/U.S.
