And so, in the end, CNN is chopping this costly HLN deadweight by killing all stay programming. This contains Robin Meade, who’s been allowed to fail at HLN (for a reported $3 million a 12 months) since 2001.
If you happen to’re on the lookout for fun, rather than Meade, HLN will simulcast Don Lemon’s failed morning present,
CNN This Morning. That’s type of like changing New Coke with New Coke II or Cop Rock with Mailman Rock. CNN ought to simply change HLN to The Forensics Recordsdata Community and name it a win.
Additionally out are a bunch of left-wing CNN correspondents: Alison Kosik, Alex Discipline, Martin Savidge, and Chris Cillizza.
Cillizza was an on-air contributor. He additionally had his very personal vertical at CNN.com, one thing referred to as The Level (which by no means had one). The entire Cillizza experiment felt like CNN’s method of bragging about the way it had an excessive amount of cash.
Truthfully, if you happen to had been to create in a lab an ideal instance of the shallow, insulated, dishonest, dumb, inexperienced, low-testosterone, clannish, gutless man-boys who infest the company media, you’d get Chris Cillizza. Aside from being a monkey for the company media’s speaking level organ, Cillizza is totally ineffective. He has by no means revealed or uttered a phrase I discovered insightful, illuminating, and even considerate. As a substitute, he’s the company media’s stenographer, a story pusher, the furthest factor from “his personal man” not named Brian Stelter.
Additionally gone are some paid contributors,
together with the New Yorker’s Susan Glasser. There are reviews that daytime anchor Ana Cabrera is out and heading to the place she and everybody else at CNN belong: the brazenly far-left MSNBC.

CNNLOL’s new chief, Chris Licht, launched a memo Thursday laying out what has occurred and can occur relating to ongoing employees cutbacks and institutional adjustments. Listed below are
Starting December 6, CNN will not produce stay programming for HLN and as a substitute will simulcast CNN This Morning. HLN Crime programming will transfer below the WBD [Warner Bros. Discovery] Networks led by Kathleen Finch and shall be merged with ID [Investigative Discovery]. I wish to take a second to thank Robin Meade—she will not be solely an exceptionally widespread anchor, but in addition one of many longest-running morning hosts in historical past. I do know the HLN viewers will miss her and the opposite HLN expertise.
Gee, what’s going to .0000001 % of the nation do with themselves now?
We’re additionally shifting our strategy to paid contributors. In some areas, we are going to rely extra on our CNN journalists. General, we are going to have interaction contributors who’re subject-matter specialists that broaden and diversify the viewpoints we convey our viewers.
Yeah, I’m anticipating
numerous viewpoints from Josef Stalin to Mitt Romney.
So what you’ve got right here is cost-cutting, however nothing, I imply
nothing, executed to regain viewership belief. CNN is asserting that it’s nonetheless a faux information community. With election-denier Jake Tapper, Antifa-lover Don Lemon, double-chinned Jim Acosta, dimwit John Avlon, the ever-expanding Briana Keiler, and the endlessly neurotic Alisyn Camerota because the face of the community, what else can we conclude?
In spite of everything, this is similar group of liars chargeable for the…
Russia Collusion Hoax
Arms Up, Don’t Shoot Hoax
Jussie Smollett Hoax
Covington KKKids Hoax
Very Fantastic Individuals Hoax
Seven-Hour Hole Hoax World Warming Hoax

Nothing right here factors to a cultural shift, a need to regain public belief. Personnel is coverage, and CNN’s coverage is similar: unfold lies and violence, and meddle in elections.
