CNN retrenching?
« on: November 13, 2021, 08:50:54 AM »

This is only being reported on conservative news sites so far, but it would be glorious if it were true.

Maybe Soros cut off his money because CNN wasn't anti-American enough

I can see them bring a bunch of people over from MSNBC.

They're going to fire a "good number" of on-air talent staff . . .

Based on what I've seen of them lately, a "good number" would be 100%.

Go woke, go broke.

I doubt that the replacement "talent" will be an improvement.

It's unbelievable to me that spending 90% of their airtime talking about Fox News hasn't been a grand success for them.

Allegedly they're going to go back to the all news format that they had when they originally started.

Hell, they were my absolute go to for news for many years. They didn't have an overt political stance and employed some top notch people.

Peter Arnett and Bernie Shaw's reporting from Baghdad during the opening days of the First Gulf War was nothing short of incredible.

Problem is, CNN can't get any farther left. MSNBC has cornered the market on true Communism in broadcasting talent.

Hmmm . . . Vladimir Pozner is along in years (if he's still around at all) and Mohammed Saeed al-Sahhaf hasn't been seen for quite a while, either.


(Vladimir of course was the voice of Radio Moscow's Soviet propaganda broadcasts and we know the other guy more familiarly as Baghdad Bob.)

So, you're telling he he didn't get a sex change operation, change his name to Jen Psaki and go to work for Biden?

I think his daughter is the NBC reporterette who came up with "Let's Go Brandon" to try and cover up what the crowd was actually chanting at a NASCAR race.

They will do straight "unbiased" news with all leftist, Democrat, presuppositions and framing.

This is, believe it our not, worse than the obvious dumpster fire that now is CNN.

All of the NPC's will immediately re-adopt CNN as the Fair and Balanced straight "unbiased" news, mostly because most people are idiots.
