CNN is about to face massive layoffs, its ratings in the basement. But no matter -- the liberalism will still reign supreme.
Over at the TimeWarner-owned CNN the progressive anchorman Don Lemon was recently arguing with a conservative by redefining the definition of an automatic weapon; the network was running a written lynch-mob style piece demanding "Where's Officer Darren Wilson?", and at CNN.com it posted a contributor who asked, in the aftermath of the beheading of journalist James Foley, Should we call ISIS ‘evil'?
And not to be outdone is Jeff Zucker, the head of CNN himself. No, he sniffed a while back.“We’re not going to be shamed” into covering the Benghazi hearings. To underline his point Zucker disdained rival Fox News by saying: “I think we all know what’s going on there. The Republican Party is being run out of News Corp. headquarters [and] masquerading as a channel.”
Now comes the results of years of doing this kind of thing at CNN . Here’s the headline from the New York Daily News:
CNN chief Jeff Zucker and parent company Time Warner say layoffs could be ahead;, trailing Fox News in ratings, faces cutbacks but seeks to protect new programs that are part of a turnaround plan....
What is remarkable here is the obsession with liberalism even if it comes down to a question of survival. Given a choice of going the straight fair-and-balanced route , the response is journalistic suicide.
So now here come the layoffs at CNN. Will CNN change direction? Of course not. Their financial, circulation and ratings life blood draining away, loser CNN is still as scornful of its winning competitor, Fox.....
No worries, all the CNN leftist commentators and liberal journalists will just get jobs at taxpayer-funded NPR, where ratings absolutely dont matter !
