CNN took some well deserved shots for their over the top non-stop coverage of the missing Malaysia flight.
They also saw their ratings rise as they went wall to wall with their coverage.
But, now the plane story is old news and CNN hasn't only lost their credibility, they have also lost their viewers.
The cable net's ratings have dropped 45% as the missing plane became old news.
CNN shed 343,000 total viewers and 129,000 demo viewers since the days after the plane went missing.
So, while the viewers are gone, dents to CNN's credibility remains. Not sure the short ratings bump was worth it.
