CNN is in shambles.
The network consistently brings up the rear in the cable news ratings.
And new management proved CNN is an utter laughingstock with one stunning move.
Discovery acquired CNN in a deal with Warner Bros., and thus far, they are not at all impressed by what they see.
Discovery board chairman Robert Malone is on record saying he’d like to see the network become more like Fox News and have straight news balanced with opinion shows.
And the network’s fledgling streaming service CNN+ is already a failure.
Heads have already begun to roll.
Axios reported that, “Warner Bros. Discovery has suspended all external marketing spend for CNN+ and has laid off CNN’s longtime chief financial officer as it weighs what to do with the subscription streaming service moving forward…Inside CNN, executives think the launch has been successful. Discovery executives disagree…New leadership has replaced CNN CFO Brad Ferrer with Neil Chugani, Discovery’s current CFO for streaming and international, as part of a broader finance team restructuring.”
The problem has gotten so dire that Chris Wallace, who jumped ship from Fox News for a hard landing at CNN+, is already panicking.
Jon Nicosia, former managing editor of Mediaite, reported, “SOURCE: Chris Wallace is ‘having daily breakdowns’ over the ‘miserable launch’ of CNNplus. Wants a ‘CNN show or is threatening to walk’ they go on. ‘He is having staffers count how many times a day his promo is playing.’”
Many questioned CNN’s design to rush CNN+ to market right before Discovery’s planned acquisition.
The move makes even less sense considering CNN already struggles to get ratings for its cable channel; a companion streamer was not desired by anyone.
Axios added that, “Discovery executives are frustrated that the service launched. If CNN held off launching CNN+ until after the merger, it would have been easier to pivot the company’s efforts towards something better aligned with Discovery’s goals. Discovery’s experience launching niche subscriptions services, like GolfTV and its Food Network Kitchen App, has informed its strategy to focus on one scaled general entertainment offering around HBO Max, instead of more niche services that have to compete with big apps for subscriber cash.”
Needless to say, CNN is having a rough stretch.
Jeff Zucker led the company down a troubled path, then he was forced to resign amid a sex scandal.
CNN+ crashing and burning seems like a fitting end to Zucker’s reign.
What Don Lemon said about CNN on Stephen Colbert’s late night show will have you steaming
CNN continues to be a hot mess.
The network is mired in last place among the top cable news outlets.
And now Don Lemon went on Stephen Colbert’s late night show and said something about CNN that will have you steaming.
Ever since CNN parent company Warner Media and Discovery, Inc.’s merger, the network has been under the microscope.
Robert Malone, Discovery’s former board chairman and current member of Warner Bros. Discovery’s board, felt that CNN had become nothing more than a left-wing propaganda outlet, and wanted to see some semblance of objectivity restored.
Since the merger, the board has turned to Chris Licht – who happens to be the former executive producer of Stephen Colbert’s late night show – to oversee CNN’s rebuild, and it has been a rocky road, to say the least.
One of Licht’s first moves was to demote Don Lemon from prominent primetime host to one of a handful of co-hosts on a morning show, even though Lemon claims it wasn’t a demotion.
In a recent appearance on Colbert’s show, Lemon discussed the current restructuring going on at CNN, and dropped one line that even took Colbert by surprise.
“The word on the street is you guys aren’t allowed to be liberal anymore?” Colbert asked. “Is that the case?”
“I don’t think we ever were liberal,” Lemon claimed.
The answer was so shocking, Colbert sharply replied, “What?”
How nice of Lemon to provide a dash of humor to Colbert’s left-wing propaganda show.
But Lemon doubled down, defiantly asserting, “Yes, I don’t think we ever were liberal.”
“That’s not me saying that,” Colbert claimed. “It’s the people out there saying [Licht is] not letting you be liberal anymore.”
“I think what Chris is saying is that he wants Republicans, sensible Republicans, he wants us to hold people to account, but he wants people to come on and feel comfortable with coming on and talking on CNN, and appearing on CNN,” Lemon explained. “So if you invite someone in your house, you want to make them feel comfortable.”
“But, also, by the nature of what we do, we have to hold people to account,” he continued. “And so that doesn’t necessarily mean we’re going liberal or conservative or whatever. It just means we are doing what we do, and that’s good journalism.”
However, Lemon blew up his own argument – if Republicans weren’t “comfortable” on CNN, why do you think that was the case?
It’s obviously because CNN became a left-wing propaganda network obsessed with taking down Donald Trump, and any Republican that wasn’t a Never-Trumper was venturing behind enemy lines.
Everybody knows that, but it’s hilarious that Don Lemon is disputing that reality.
CNN’s latest COVID propaganda campaign is just as infuriating as you’d imagine
For all intents and purposes, COVID is over.
But the corporate-controlled press hasn’t received the memo apparently.
And CNN’s latest COVID propaganda campaign is just as infuriating as you’d imagine.
The COVID regime is still trying to milk the pandemic for all its worth.
Corporate-controlled media outlets love to sell panic, and after getting the taste of power that comes with it, politicians and so-called public health “experts” do not want to give up.
For that reason, the COVID regime is sending mixed signals about the coronavirus.
For example, President Joe Biden previously deemed the pandemic “over,” but then walked that back to push for every American to continue receiving booster shots indefinitely.
And for their part, Fake News outlets like CNN are still telling people to wear a mask in order to protect against COVID.
— Tom Elliott (@tomselliott) November 28, 2022
There have been numerous studies that show masks are essentially useless against COVID – if worn properly, N95 masks can provide some protection, but most people are not wearing them, and those who do are not wearing them correctly over long periods of time.
People mainly wear cloth masks, which CNN medical expert Dr. Leana Wen has admitted are nothing more than “facial decorations.”
World leaders, as well as many corporate and Silicon Valley titans, have admitted that a Chinese Communist Party-style of governance is the model that the western elites want to adopt.
Former President Barack Obama and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau are just two examples of world leaders who have complained that they do not have the power of the CCP.
Communist China has lied about its number of COVID deaths from the beginning, and their authoritarian government continues to implement draconian lockdowns, and throw “infected” citizens in outright concentration camps, nearly three years after the outbreak.
The Communist Party’s goons have welded Chinese citizens inside buildings, which has led to horrific tragedies, like in Xinjiang Province where at least ten people were burned alive because they could not escape the building they were welded inside in the name of “public health.”
Despite determining that the pandemic is “over,” President Biden has also kept his unconstitutional vaccine mandate in place for federal employees.
If not for a conservative-leaning Supreme Court, Biden’s unconstitutional mandate would have been forced on the millions of Americans who work for a company with at least 50 employees.
Universities and government schools in various jurisdictions are also requiring students to be fully vaccinated and boosted.
This is the biggest windfall in history for Big Pharma, and the companies are taking full advantage.
That’s why cable news networks, like CNN, continue to relentlessly push masks and vaccines and boosters while companies like Pfizer pay them millions of dollars in “advertising.”
The establishment elitists want COVID to last forever.
CNN’s flimsy “evidence” for this blatantly fabricated story will leave you rolling your eyes
A CNN writer seemed to be suffering from some sort of leftist, holiday hangover when he penned an article for the network’s website travel section.
Instead of lighthearted content about something relevant like taking a trip, he blatantly fabricated a story ripping into the U.S.
And his flimsy “evidence” will leave you rolling your eyes.
Whenever leftists take a break from playing the racist “equity” card, all they really have to fall back on is griping about guns.
Forrest Brown penned a clown-piece for CNN’s “unlocking the world” travel section entitled, “What travel warnings do other nation’s give their citizens about US violence?”
The idea was clearly hatched in a deranged left-wing haze, and unfortunately executed without any real logical thought getting in the way.
In the first few paragraphs, Brown continued to hint at the idea that the other nations are warning their citizens against traveling to the U.S., before eventually getting to the substance of the article — or lack thereof.
In spite of a crime wave nurtured by Marxist Black Lives Matter rioters, pro-crime defense attorneys, and the Democrats who gave rise to both, the United States remains one of the safest places in the world to travel, especially if visitors have the good sense to avoid areas where Democrats are in charge.
Of course, Brown doesn’t care about facts, and he certainly has no interest in placing the blame for anything that is going wrong on the Democrats who run the show.
Instead, Brown twisted himself into all sorts of knots worrying about whether “gun violence” is tarnishing America’s reputation abroad.
“Would-be visitors aren’t being warned off entirely as if America is an active war zone,” Brown wrote. “Each nation has its own approach. But a general theme boils down to this: The United States is more violent than what you’re used to. Learn to take precautions there that you might not have to take at home.”
He then proceeded to provide a list of countries with the greatest numbers of U.S. visitors and their advice for travelers.
He had to get all the way down to Germany — which is a socialist hot mess — before he found a satisfying level of snark.
“It is easy to obtain guns in the United States, leading to increased use of guns and occasional killing sprees,” The German Ministry of Foreign Affairs reports. “The number of arms and ammunition purchases has increased significantly during the COVID-19 crisis.”
Of course, that gratuitous political claim wasn’t backed up with anything.
The United Kingdom’s government got a lot closer to reality, noting that no matter how much left-wing radicals scream like their hair is on fire, it’s unlikely anything is going to happen to the average visitor to America.
Unless, of course, they’re inclined to hang out in any Democrat-controlled city or the southern border.
