CNN executives put a nail in the network’s coffin when they revealed one jaw-dropping fact

Published

CNN has been failing fast since Donald Trump left office.

The most interesting stories correspondents cover are about their own scandalous employees.

And CNN executives put a nail in the network’s coffin when they revealed one jaw-dropping fact.

The only people more clueless – and corrupt – than CNN hosts are CNN executives.

This week they proved that by launching the most ill-conceived “damage control” campaign ever.

Last year, the network came under fire for failing to punish star primetime host Chris Cuomo when he was caught trying to help his brother even as New York Governor Andrew Cuomo was being pelted with sexual misconduct allegations.

Apparently, there was a good reason for that hesitancy – Cuomo managed to take CNN CEO Jeff Zucker and Allison Gollust down with him.

This week, CNN hack Brian Stelter pushed an “internal” memo on Twitter as the network made an incredibly awkward effort to finally wrap up the Cuomo scandal.

The memo was sent out to CNN employees from Jason Kilar – the new CEO of CNN’s parent company Warner Media.

The announcement about Allison Gollust’s resignation was anticlimactic in the wake of CEO Jeff Zucker’s departure, but it offered an opportunity for the company to brag about their internal investigation.

“Performed by a third-party law firm and led by a former federal judge, the investigation was comprehensive and definitive,” Kilar wrote. “It was commissioned in September and concluded this weekend, which now allows me to share additional information with you. Based on interviews of more than 40 individuals and a review of over 100,000 texts and emails, the investigation found violations of Company policies, including CNN’s News Standards and Practices, by Jeff Zucker, Allison Gollust, and Chris Cuomo.”

Talk about the ultimate credibility hit.

It’s no wonder viewers are fleeing CNN when the network can’t even investigate its own staff, much less uncover an actual news story.

At any rate, bragging about hiring a law firm – including a former federal judge – to untangle their internal mess is ludicrous.

Chances are that corporate bosses are trying to kill off future speculation, but this mess is only going to garner more attention with competitors grabbing a bowl of popcorn while they enjoy the show.

While the focus has been on Zucker and Gollust’s romantic relationship, there are plenty of questions about what isn’t being said – including how they violated the network’s news standards.

No matter what went down, it’s obvious the network is now only a decaying shell of what was once a successful company.

CNN’s viewership plummeted by 90 percent in the past year and this week the network reached a new seven-year low drawing less than half a million average viewers each day.

A ratings report shows CNN averaged only 444,000 average viewers each day while Fox News pulled in an average 1.5 million – with Tucker Carlson pulling a full 3.5 million viewers.

Rather than focusing on their own rotten-to-the-core agendas, CNN bosses and hosts could save their company if they would start focusing on reporting the news rather than creating it.

Don Lemon made one claim that could land him in hot water with his new boss at CNN

Published

CNN has long been nothing more than leftist propaganda.

The new president of CNN, Chris Licht, has indicated that he wants to change that.

And Don Lemon made one claim that could land him in hot water with his new boss at CNN.

On an episode of Comedy Central’s Hell Of A Week, host “Charlamagne Tha God” asked CNN’s Don Lemon about new network CEO Chris Licht’s plans to move CNN away from partisan left-wing opinion toward more balanced coverage.

“Will you still be able to call it like it is?” the host asked, even if the notion of Don Lemon somehow “calling it like it is” is laughable.

Lemon has been nothing but a reliable shill for the radical Left.

“So, let me just say I don’t think that’s exactly what Chris is saying,” Lemon said of the new CNN head. “I think that’s a narrative that’s been placed in the media. I think what Chris wants to do is to be able to have Republicans and Democrats and whatever your political stance is on CNN so that you can be accountable and that you can answer for it.”

Lemon then claimed if he were no longer able to “tell the truth,” he would go somewhere else.

He then boasted about the supposed importance of self-proclaimed “journalists,” like himself, claiming he holds the powerful accountable and is essential to democracy.

Of course, the only time Don Lemon ever holds left-wing elites accountable is when he feels they aren’t being radical enough.

Lemon defended his biased coverage by accusing Republicans of “threatening democracy” and “promoting white nationalism.

The show’s host then brought up Lemon’s former colleague, Chris Cuomo, who was fired after using media resources to try to help his brother cover up sexual assault allegations, and the fact that Cuomo previously said that he wished Lemon, and others at CNN, would have called him before commenting on his firing.

Chris Cuomo now has a new job at NewsNation.

Following the ouster of former CNN head Jeff Zucker for sexual misconduct, Christ Licht took over as president of CNN.

Licht has repeatedly signaled his desire to restore CNNs credibility by moving away from radical left-wing hyper partisanship.

If Licht is serious about this goal, giving Don Lemon the boot would be a good start.

CNN executives just got the worst news of their lives when they saw these shocking numbers

Published

They were once considered the “king” of network news.

But lately CNN has been more like the court jester.

And CNN executives just got the worst news of their lives when they saw these shocking numbers.

It’s no secret CNN has been on a downward spiral over the past decade.

The network’s ratings haven’t come close to matching those of Fox News, to the point where it seems that they’re not even trying anymore.

And lately, it’s only gotten worse for CNN, as the network’s shows have even failed to beat the ratings of cooking shows and infomercials at times.

But the latest news about the network has even CNN’s own multi-millionaire executives scrambling for a soft place to land.

In fact, things are so bad at the network that invented the 24-hour news cycle that their restructured parent company, Warner Bros. Discovery, is planning massive cuts across the board.

The news comes as CNN is reportedly on pace to miss annual profit expectations – both internally and on Wall Street – by a substantial, larger-than-expected margin, as their ratings continue to plummet.

The corporate-controlled media outlet’s profitability is expected to decline to just $956.8 million in 2022, which would be the first year since 2016 that the troubled network has seen its profits dip below the $1 billion threshold.

The New York Times reported that CNN’s adjusted profit expectations fall significantly short of its initial 2022 target of $1.1 billion, according two people familiar with CNN’s operations.

In addition, though it seemed they couldn’t sink any lower, CNN’s ratings have yet to find a new bottom.

This quarter, the network’s average primetime viewership has dropped to just 639,000, a whopping 27% decrease from the same time period last year.

Despite its considerable resources – and the fact that every doctor’s office in America plays it all day, every day – the network continues to place a distant third behind Fox News and MSNBC.

The Times reported that CNN has invested millions of dollars into its coverage of the war in Ukraine, all in the hopes it would increase viewership.

That has not happened.

And the network is still paying costs related to its now-defunct CNN+ streaming service, which includes the salary of former Fox News anchor Chris Wallace.

The streaming service was highly touted and promoted heavily by the network, but as it turns out, no one wants to pay for the same leftist drivel they already weren’t watching for free.

The little-watched streaming service lasted just a month before it became one of the very first casualties of the Warner Bros. Discovery merger after executives shut it down back in April.

All expectations indicate Warner Bros. Discovery will enact drastic cuts and layoffs across its operations – especially at CNN – in the coming weeks, as CEO David Zaslav cleans house and fulfills his pledge to find at least $3 billion in savings for shareholders.

That process has already began, as Warner Bros. announced it won’t release its latest D.C. Comics franchise, Batgirl, despite reportedly pouring $70 million into its production, or a new Scooby Doo movie it reportedly budgeted $40 million for.

The studio also canceled the disaster of a TBS show that is Full Frontal with Samantha Bee.

Full Frontal’s ratings also consistently under-performed, as its disgusting host made increasingly nasty, bizarre, radical left-wing pronouncements, like calling Ivanka Trump a “cunt” and urging her viewers to harass Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito.

Of course, CNN’s new president, Chris Licht, told employees back in May that he didn’t expect Warner Bros. Discovery to enact more layoffs at CNN after the shutdown of CNN+.

But that looks like quite the empty promise now.

Erin Burnett allowed baseless attacks on Matt Gaetz by this top Pence staffer

Published

on

The war between supporters of Donald Trump and supporters of Mike Pence is heating up.

And Pence’s troops are finding allies in the corporate-controlled media.

That’s why Erin Burnett allowed baseless attacks on Matt Gaetz by this top Pence staffer.

There is an ancient proverb that says the enemy of my enemy is my friend.

Of course, that’s not really true – an enemy is still an enemy.

But former Vice President Mike Pence’s team sure seems to think so.

That’s why they keep showing up on corporate-controlled media outlets, like CNN and MSNBC, spewing their anti-Trump vitriol and trying to promote Pence’s longshot bid for the 2024 Republican Presidential nomination.

And it’s why, for now at least, leftist talking heads, like CNNs Erin Burnett, are pretending to cozy up to the Pence forces.

That’s exactly what happened in a recent CNN interview she conducted with former Pence Chief of Staff Marc Short.

In fact, not only did she allow Short to attack Congressman Matt Gaetz (R-FL), she allowed it to go so far that Short actually made claims so outrageous they could result in legal action.

Former Vice President Mike Pence’s Chief of Staff, Marc Short, actually went so far as to accuse Rep. Gaetz of being a child trafficker. 

This libelous charge came after Burnett told Short the Congressman said the former Vice President would never be elected President.

Here is the actual exchange that took place:

BURNETT: “To take it back to Washington where you just referred, Matt Gaetz, obviously, a very loyal Trump ally at this point, fired at the Vice President, the former Vice President today, and the comments that Vice President Pence was making.”

“Here’s what Matt Gaetz said.” (Burnett then played the video of Gaetz’s comments).

REP. MATT GAETZ (R-FL): “Our America is proudly ultra MAGA, not some low energy roadside RINO safari. On that note, let me just say what everybody here knows. Mike Pence will never be President. Nice guy, not a leader.”

(END VIDEO CLIP)

BURNETT: “Marc?”

SHORT: “Well, I don’t know if Mike Pence will run for President in 2024, but I don’t think Matt Gaetz will have an impact on that. In fact, I’d be surprised if he’s still voting. It’s more likely he’ll be in prison for child trafficking by 2024.”

“And I’m actually surprised the Florida law enforcement still allows him to speak to teenage conferences like that. So, I’m not too worried what Matt Gaetz thinks.”

This shocking exchange shows just how deep the hatred of Donald Trump runs not only in the media, but also in the power corridors of Washington, D.C.

Marc Short is a life-long D.C. insider, and clearly his hatred of the former President runs deep.

He is even willing to work with CNN leftists, like Erin Burnett, to make unfounded and scurrilous charges about a U.S. Congressmen.

And Burnett, of course, is well-known for her radical leftist agenda and is all too wiling to work with the likes of Short to promote her anti-Trump, socialist agenda.

Her ilk can’t get enough of Team Pence’s help.
