CNN’s ratings continue to tank.
Something had to give.
And CNN made one big change that no one saw coming.
As Black Eye Politics reports:
CNN’s reputation for being an extremely biased left-wing echo chamber is well earned.
Ever since Donald Trump emerged on the political scene in 2015, the network went from being a left-leaning outlet to acting as little more than a propaganda arm for the Democratic Party.
And in recent years, CNN’s extreme left-wing bias has led to Americans across the board losing faith in the network.
As a result, they’ve been turning away from CNN in droves, and now, the network is facing a crisis unlike anything in its history.
With ratings at an all-time low and CNN’s parent company Warner Brothers Discovery hoping for a quick turnaround, the network is now resorting to desperate measures in a last-ditch attempt to salvage itself.
And the plan is to fire loads of left-wing commentators and talking heads all in a bid to try and rebuild CNN’s image from the ground up.
MSN reports, “CNN staffers said they fear a network-wide purge of top talent after Brian Stelter and White House correspondent John Harwood were unceremoniously fired.
“After Harwood announced his surprise departure on Friday, just hours after reporting from the White House, current and former CNN employees told The Washington Post that there appears to be a culling of the woke at the media outlet.”
The recent shakeup at CNN represents a possible turning point in the network’s history.
With left-wing hacks being dropped from CNN’s lineup, executives at Warner Brothers are trying to force the network to reorient itself towards a more “centrist” approach.
Instead of emphasizing raw politically-charged content, CNN’s owners are apparently working to try and pivot the network towards more “balanced” coverage when it comes to hot-button political issues.
And the Left is losing their minds over this sudden change.
“Viewers were speculating online that anchors could be next, with Don Lemon, a lightning rod for the right, being mentioned. Other popular anchors on the possible chopping block included Jim Acosta and Jake Tapper,” adds MSN.
Harwood in particular was one of the most egregious demagogues over at CNN.
In 2016, he even sent emails to the Hillary Clinton campaign asking them what questions they’d like him to ask of Republican primary candidates for president.
He blatantly picks sides and is routinely trying to rebrand his own partisan political views as objective truth.
And his firing represents a milestone in the history of CNN, as the network tries to distance itself from its rabidly left-wing past.
The only question remaining is whether or not the axe continues to fall on more left-wing positions at CNN, and if Warner Brothers Discovery pushes forward with this plan to revamp the network.
