We have heard that CNN has been having trouble and rightly so, but it is getting even worse.
There are massive layoffs happening at CNN. Now, I am not one to celebrate when people lose their jobs at any time, but right before the holidays is a tough blow for anyone.
However, I cannot help but feel as if this is what happens when you see a network act so vindictively toward more than half of the nation.
For years, this network has played an integral part in causing tremendous division in the country and I am a firm believer in the “what goes around, comes around” mentality.
CNN has been used by the communist left to destroy this country, demonize innocent people, and spread fake news is getting dismantled before our very eyes. What I hope, is that these firings involve the actual people who have been pushing fear-mongering, hatred, and propaganda. Not the poor guy operating the boom mic.
The news just hit the wire, and it said that “hundreds” of employees will be let go.
It doesn’t help that Joe Biden’s economy sucks and is only going to get worse.

This news comes on the heels of Don Lemon’s attempts to dispel the notion that CNN was ever “liberal,” as his new boss Chris Licht attempts to rescue the struggling network.
Fox News reported that on Monday, “The Late Show” host Stephen Colbert asked Lemon about Licht, who previously served as the executive producer of the CBS late-night program before being tapped as CNN’s CEO following the ousting of Jeff Zucker earlier this year.
“Word on the street is that you guys aren’t allowed to be liberal anymore. Is that the case?” Colbert asked.
“I don’t think we ever were liberal,” Lemon responded.
“What?” Colbert shockingly reacted. “That’s not me saying that, that’s the people out there saying he’s not letting you be liberal anymore.”
“Well listen, 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 said. “So if you invite someone to your house, you want to make them comfortable but also by the nature of what we do, we have to hold people to account.”
“And so that doesn’t necessarily mean we’re going liberal or conservative or whatever, it just means that we are doing what we do and that’s good journalism,” Lemon added.
“So accountable but not confrontational,” Colbert said.
“I think sometimes one must be confrontational,” the CNN host pushed back. “Look, I don’t think that a conversation on television should be any different than a conversation in person. Listen, I have confrontational conversations with people I love and I have unconformable conversations with people I love and I think it’s necessary. And I think it’s also necessary to do that on television, on CNN, but you can do that without being vitriolic. I think not being vitriolic is maybe a better way of putting it, but you can do that and not have vitriol. As people say, you can disagree without being disagreeable. And so I think that’s what our mission is.”
CNN boss Chris Licht informs employees in an all-staff note that layoffs are underway.
Licht says those being notified today are largely paid contributors and then tomorrow CNN "will notify impacted employees."

One of the biggest mistakes Chris made was not firing this clown. Instead, he was demoted to a goofy morning show that nobody watches.
Thus far, Chris Licht has failed to understand that he has a “personality” problem at CNN. The people who are still there have Stage 5 TDS and have been spewing hate and division for eons now. They just can’t all of a sudden “seem impartial” to those of us who have been watching them behave like unhinged bullies on camera and online for nearly 7 years now.
We’ll see who gets fired this time around. But if people like Don Lemon and Jim Acosta keep their jobs, then we’ll know CNN is not serious about making any noteworthy changes.
