CNN Biden Town Hall Beats All Cable News Tuesday Night, Then CNN Fact Check Says 4 Big Mistakes


CNN’s Town Hall with Joe Biden was the biggest ratings getter Tuesday night.

With Anderson Cooper hosting, the Town Hall at 9pm beat all cable news including Rachel Maddow on MSNBC. The show scored 3.6 million viewers, also drawing more eyes than Tucker Carlson’s Fox News show from 8pm.

The Town Hall doubled CNN’s 8pm draw with Chris Cuomo, which had 1.8 million viewers.

The program was a success. But then, just in case you thought CNN was just letting Biden say whatever he wanted, they fact checked the Town Hall and decided he made four big errors.
