As CNN Continues to Fail Due to Its Egregious Partisan Bias, Chris Licht's Days Are Numbered (For Pushing Back Against CNN's Egregious Partisan Bias)

CNN is The Maddow Network, But Without The Maddow.

And how's that working?

Not great!

The decision by CNN's corporate overlord to install a chief operating officer could be "the beginning of the end" for network chief Chris Licht, who must answer to a meddlesome boss while being undermined by a newsroom loyal to his predecessor, according to a report on the news channel's meltdown.

Licht's year-long reign since taking over for the ousted Jeff Zucker has been plagued by internal turmoil -- namely over fired anchor Don Lemon -- and behind-the-scenes skullduggery, according to the 15,000-word expose by The Atlantic.

All the while, the ratings continue to hit new lows -- even losing some primetime battles to Newsmax -- as Licht attempts to pivot CNN toward the middle after years of pandering to the left.

Now, Thursday's announcement that David Leavy, a longtime loyalist of Warner Bros. Discovery CEO David Zaslav, will become CNN's COO has "fueled talk of an imminent power struggle -- and potentially, the beginning of the end for Licht," sources told The Atlantic.

The magazine cited sources who blamed Zaslav for putting Licht in an unenviable position of having to work for a boss described as a micromanager.


CNN staffers have reportedly chafed at what they view as Zaslav's meddling in editorial decisions.

...

[Licht] blames Zucker, for planting "hit pieces" with reporters who are considered sympathetic to the old regime, The Atlantic reported.

...

After the [Trump town hall] ended, CNN's post-town hall wrap-up featured two concurrent segments -- a Jake Tapper-led panel of journalists who eviscerated Trump and an Anderson Cooper-led roundtable of politicos and partisan pundits.


According to The Atlantic, Zaslav had communicated to associates in the days after the event that he was unhappy with Tapper's roundtable -- saying it had reminded him of CNN under Zucker.

So CNN's answer to the egregious partisanship of Anderson Cooper is... the egregious partisanship of Jake Tapper.

And then they couldn't even do that right.

There are all sorts of hit pieces out about Licht and also Don LeMon.


Don Lemon's ugly rift with CNN boss Chris Licht began on the first day of his ill-fated stint as host of "CNN This Morning" -- and the problem was Lemon's bizarre outfit, according to a report.

On the morning of the show's Nov. 1 debut, Lemon -- who was eventually fired by Licht on April 24 after 17 years at the left-leaning news network -- waltzed onto the set wearing a white jacket with a fur collar, The Atlantic reported.

"What the f--k is he wearing?" Licht, the network's 51-year-old chief executive, cried out when he saw Lemon's over-the-top look, according to the explosive report published on Friday.

Lemon proceeded to take the jacket off before he went on air alongside co-hosts Poppy Harlow and Kaitlan Collins, but then butchered the opening line of the segment, according to the report, which cited unnamed sources close to the situation.

"Read the f-cking prompter," Licht exclaimed in frustration, according to the report.

...

According to the magazine, top executives, fearing there was no way to salvage Lemon's position at "CNN This Morning," urged Licht to fire Lemon. Lemon, for his part, "pitched an attempt at damage control -- a prime-time special on misogyny, which he would host with a roundtable of women," according to the report.

LOL.


Licht rejected the idea.

In the wake of outrage over the misogynistic comment, Lemon began telling allies that Al Sharpton, Ben Crump, and other black leaders "come to his aid if he were axed from the network, and would defend his firing as a move to bolster CNN's whiteness," according to the report.

Of course -- you can't fire me, I'm black and gay.

Former liberal National Review "journalist" Tim Alberta has more. Former liberal National Review "journalist" Tim Alberta seems as angry as every other batsh!t crazy liberal that CNN dared to interview Trump, a likely nominee for a major party presidential nomination, any time on their air.

He's very angry at Chris Licht.


Later in the profile, Licht explained some of his views on diversity to Alberta.

"Licht recalled a recent dustup with his own diversity, equity, and inclusion staff after making some spicy remarks at a conference. "I said, 'A Black person, a brown person, and an Asian woman that all graduated the same year from Harvard is not diversity,'" he told me.

A minute later--after noting how sharing that anecdote could get him in trouble, and pausing to consider what he would say next--Licht added: "I think 'Defund the police' would've been covered differently if newsrooms were filled with people who had lived in public housing." I asked him why. "They have a different relationship with their need with the police," he said."

If Licht elaborated on his plans to hire more public-housing residents into the ranks at CNN, Alberta didn't quote him on it.

Angry staffers and low ratings have plagued CNN CEO Chris Licht's first year on the job.

At a holiday party, Licht mostly kept to himself and read bad publicity about himself instead of interacting with his staff.

That anecdote is from a revealing new profile about Licht in The Atlantic.

CNN CEO Chris Licht has been on the job for just over a year. In that time, CNN has suffered through low ratings and even lower employee morale, fired one star anchor, hosted a widely-criticized town hall with former President Donald Trump, and dismantled its much-touted new morning program. A damning new profile of Licht in The Atlantic written by Tim Alberta reveals the CEO was as fascinated with his own bad press as everyone else:


At a holiday dinner for his D.C.-based talent, Licht went around the private room at Café Milano, shook hands and spoke briefly with each of the journalists, then sat down and spent much of the dinner looking at his phone. Not only did he say nothing to address the group--as they all expected he would--but Licht barely interacted with the people seated near him. It became so awkward that guests began texting one another, wondering if there was some crisis unfolding with an international bureau. When a pair of them caught a glimpse of Licht's phone, they could see that he was reading a critical story about him in Puck."

I continue to be impressed by National Review's near-perfect record in hiring outrageously biased liberal as "reporters" for a "conservative" blogzine. It's almost as if they do so intentionally. Almost as if liberals are the only people National Review feels comfortable with, or trusts.

What an opener. Zazlav setting direction for a company he owns is being "meddlesome?"

And there is a clear answer to this problem: fire the newsroom.

That's not how any of this works. There will be no "power struggle." If Zaslav is finished with Licht, then Licht is gone. If the new guy is Leavy, then Leavy is the boss.

This isn't some factional war in a royal court, this is just a question of who the boss of a wholly-owned division of a major corporation is going to be.

This is on Licht for not rooting out traitors in his own organization, and this is probably why Licht is going to be replaced. He should be. He didn't get the job done.

Does this remind everyone of Babylon 5? The CNN analogue on the show was well done. The idea was, as Earth changed more and more ... well like today, they had to be more and more careful in how they portrayed stories. Until martial law was declared. Then they had a breathless guy coming on saying that there were things people had to know and that state forces were moving on the headquarters. The feed cuts off.

Then a few episodes later, the network comes back on. Completely sanitized with creepy talking heads, a complete government propaganda organ.

The thing is, CNN (and actually all of the networks) have felt like the latter ever since November 2020. Maybe since Covid.

Lawsuits would be a nuisance at worst. And it isn't like CNN has far to fall. Maybe it's because I'm on the outside looking in, but CNN is pointless. Trying to preserve and tweak the pointlessness seems like a foolish strategy.

Has to have been underwater demolition.


The Ukes say the Russians did it, the Russians say the Ukes did it.

But he Russians are providing more details and more importantly the flooding gives the Ukes two strategic advantages

1) It makes it harder for Russia to reinforce both parts of their force
2) It might flood a nuclear reactor downstream the Russians would have to deal with

https://tinyurl.com/58zy9bpw

About 20 people ranging in age from 21 to 30 were flown by private jet to Sacramento on Monday, California Attorney General Rob Bonta said. It was the second such flight in four days.

"To see leaders and governments of other states and the state of Florida, Governor Ron DeSantis, acting with cruelty and inhumanity and moral bankruptcy and being petty and small and hurtful and harmful to those vulnerable asylum seekers is blood-boiling," Bonta said in a Monday interview.

Meanwhile, California Gov. Gavin Newsom lashed out at DeSantis as a "small, pathetic man" and suggested the state could pursue kidnapping charges.

So you noticed that, too, did you?

By the terms of the account, the "transphobe" called her a "faggot," which would imply that the "transphobe" acknowledges her as a man - that is, the alleged shouter was not a "transphobe."

Unless the alleged shouter was both transphobic (doesn't see her as a man) *and* homophobic (doesn't like that she was box-muncher), in which case the word choice doesn't make sense. People don't call chicks "faggot." There are other pejoratives for that scenario.

Communism has a common point of failure early in the process. The goal is greater material equality. Since people won't voluntarily give up their property, the only solution people ever come up with is forced redistribution.

The power to redistribute is given to a government agency. A small group now controls all of the wealth in the economy. Quick, define aristocracy!

Creating an aristocracy in the name of a greater material equality is contradictory and self-defeating. Communism betrays itself and dies, right there, every time - a suicide. It can only then collapse into the despotic regimes we all know and loathe.

"To see leaders and governments of other states and the state of Florida, Governor Ron DeSantis, acting with cruelty and inhumanity and moral bankruptcy and being petty and small and hurtful and harmful to those vulnerable asylum seekers is blood-boiling," Bonta said in a Monday interview.

Meanwhile, California Gov. Gavin Newsom lashed out at DeSantis as a "small, pathetic man" and suggested the state could pursue kidnapping charges.

256 LATimes - L.A.’s drag scene is bigger than ever. But it’ll take a ‘rebellion’ to keep it safe

Miss Barbie-Q, who has been doing drag in L.A. since 1992, doesn’t see the art form’s rise in popularity as universally beneficial, especially for performers of color.
"The drag scene is still a struggle for some, especially for a lot of Black and brown communities that are doing drag without the help of ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race.’

"When I came out as trans, I lost a lot of work as a drag queen," Miss Barbie-Q continued. "Transphobia within the drag community is still there. Don’t get it twisted."

The representation is necessary, Shu Mai said, because the L.A. drag scene has seen acts of yellowface as recently as last year. Filipino American drag king Skirt Cocaine said they have witnessed blackface and non-Black performers using the N-word in lip-sync performances.

The entire premise of the movie is her leaving her "career" behind to choose family and motherhood.

365 While the Right goes by the “politics is downstream of culture” motto, the Left goes by the “fuck culture, wield power whenever you get it” motto.

The few times that left has "done something" it is almost invariably met with a whole bunch of...nothing. The left/FNM claim the world will end and every Republican will be voted out and...it never happens.

But the worthless GOPe mouths this and claims they can't actually use power because it will end the world and get them all voted out...

387 I don't know, but maybe it's because "conservative" is in some way the only truly Revolutionary thought. You can't ease your way into embracing Liberty or the institutions that enable it. You either had it indoctrinated into you when growing up, or it was a massive watershed revelation that everything makes more sense when you base your entire worldview on liberty and individual rights, rather than so-called Public Goods. It's far easier to slide into a collectivist worldview by a thousand cuts of "yeah buts" and "what abouts", gradually, over time. Which may very well be one reason for the ratchet always going "left" and never "right".

I could be way off base though.

Lefties aggressively police their own.

I'll give you an example - I ended up on a bunch of leftwing political lists. I got emails/texts/calls come election time telling me who to vote for and WHY for every office up for voting.

Conversely I contacted the local Republican party to ask who they would recommend in the local, nominally non-partisan, offices.

The Republicans didn't know. They didn't recommend some third party conservative groups. When I suggested maybe I should just vote for people NOT on the lefty lists they told me that was a great idea (like the people I was talking with had never even thought about doing that before).

.
The wall of a major dam in southern Ukraine collapsed Tuesday, triggering floods, endangering Europe’s largest nuclear power plant, and threatening drinking water supplies as both sides in the war scrambled to evacuate residents and blamed each other for the destruction.

Ukraine accused Russian forces of blowing up the Kakhovka dam and hydroelectric power station on the Dnieper River in an area that Moscow controls, while Russian officials blamed Ukrainian bombardment in the contested area. It was not possible to verify the claims.

However, it's possible that Ukraine didn't do it either, because it would have been stupid for them to do it, too. So you know what that means - must have been the Skipper and Gilligan again!

435 "When a pair of them caught a glimpse of Licht's phone, they could see that he was reading a critical story about him in Puck."

I defy you to go see what they have to offer at "puck.news". Why someone trying to reclaim CNN from the brink of liberal idiocy gives a shit about what raging liberal dipshits at "Puck" think is beyond me

436 CNN is trash, Zaslav (Discovery)is too cheap to buy out all the woke morons that Zucker hired. In media you can’t fire leftists for low ratings, fake news or bad behavior unless it happens for 16 years and involves women being harassed. .
You can’t change any org without changing the people.

More than $15k can be earned online by performing straightforward tasks from home. In the previous month, I got $18376. Even a young child may do this job and make money because it is so simple to complete and has higher pay than typical office occupations. Everyone needs to try this task by using the information on this page. www.Richepay.com
