As the embattled far-left wing CNN Propaganda network continues to see ratings plummet, they were forced to announce this past Monday that they would be laying off more than 100 workers.
Trying to save face, the network spun the news, as Brian Stelter, CNN’s spinster of deception himself, said that there were “no layoffs,” but instead spun the news as… “voluntary buyouts throughout the organization, and about 100 people opted for it.”
However, Stelter’s spin is ‘fake news’ in itself, as his claim that it is a “voluntary buyout” is just another way to say “layoffs,” because “buyouts” are a glorified ‘layoff’, but if the employees refuse to have their contracts ‘bought out’, the layoffs will soon follow! After all, it isn’t a choice, but a polite way to say leave! Furthermore, the network an could have given them pennies on the dollar to buy them out, simply so they can advertise the layoff’s, as a buyout!
In the end, it is no wonder as to why CNN cannot get any of their stories correct or truthful! After all, they can’t even admit that their own ratings are falling, or that they are being forced to lay off employees, due to those plummeting ratings!
Deadline reported that…
“more than 100 seasoned workers at the cable news network” lost their jobs.
Therefore, those who have been at the network for years, are on the chopping block!
In addition, the reports indicate that the cuts are ‘layoffs’, because CNN’s parent company AT&T, is trying to reduce debt through the restructuring of the network. They said…
“The buyouts are consistent with similar offerings at HBO and Turner and will see dozens of seasoned employees leave the news brand,” as CNN will see more than 100 terminated from the payrolls!
Although CNN refuses to admit the facts about their failing viewership and subsequent layoffs, ‘The Daily Wire’ revealed that…
“the disastrous ratings at CNN continue to trend downward, suggesting that their Trump/Russia conspiracy obsession is falling flat with the general public.
CNN is not only getting crushed by Fox News, which is par for the course, but the network is also taking a beating from MSNBC. Forbes reports, “CNN had significant declines in February, with ratings dropping 19% in total day and 16% in prime, where the network returned an average audience of 979,000 total viewers — behind MSNBC (1.805 million) and Fox News (2.766 million).”
The report adds, “MSNBC has now beaten CNN in prime for 12 consecutive months among viewers 25-54 and 15 consecutive months among all viewers.”
And it gets worse when you look at the top cable news shows for February. CNN doesn’t even crack the top 20. In fact, host Anderson Cooper was the only one to make the top 25 for CNN, sneaking in at the 24 spot.
Fox News, on the other hand, is crushing it.
“Fox News Channel has led all basic cable networks for 20 consecutive months and has been the most-watched cable news network in total day and in prime time for 194 months straight, finishing February with an average total audience in prime time of 2.8 million, down 3% from February 2017,” reports Forbes.
Host Sean Hannity, once again, is ratings king, averaging an impressive 3.3 million total viewers.
But if you were thinking such abysmal ratings would spark a change in CNN’s questionable “journalistic” habits, you’d be mistaken. On Monday, the network embarrassed themselves by putting an unstable man they began to suspect was drunk on live air in the pursuit of painting President Donald Trump as some puppet of the Kremlin. CNN also tracked down a self-styled “seductress” and “sex coach” sitting in jail in a similar pursuit to mar the president. Just last week, “reporters” went digging through trash in yet another failed attempt to prove some Trump/Russia conspiracy.
Sadly, CNN has been the ‘conspiracy theory leader’, as they have launched attacks against the Covington Catholic School Boys, Trayvon Martin, Russia Collusion, Brett Kavanaugh, and countless other hoaxes and conspiracy theories, JUST IN THE PAST FEW YEARS! They have pushed for and encouraged attacks on President Trump, his family, his children, his grandchildren, his supporting electorate, and anyone else who has refused to adhere to the Marxist initiative in America and around the world!
For example, CNN has pushed the global warming hoax for more than a decade, only to have report after report that showed the theory to be false! Regardless, CNN stood by their allegations publicly, while claiming that the sea levels would bury much of Manhattan and the coastlines in America within the next ten years. However, their actions indicate otherwise, as they have announced that their network is to move its base of operations into the Manhattan Hudson Yards, which is the exact area that they claim will be underwater in a few short years! THEREFORE, WHY WOULD THEY MOVE THEIR BASE OF OPERATIONS TO AN AREA, IN WHICH THEY CLAIM WILL BE UNDERWATER DUE TO GLOBAL WARMING AND RISING SEA LEVELS IN A FEW SHORT YEARS?
Today CNN has become the mouthpiece for Marxist based Fascism, as they launch hate and vile attacks against anti-Marxist Americans on a daily basis! They encourage violence and hatred towards political enemies, as they target anyone who dares question the radical left, or their initiatives! In addition, they pit divisions against men and women, gay and straight Americans, the old and young, the rich and poor, and the traditional left and right!
Sadly, CNN, like most of the Mainstream Media, no longer stand up for the freedom of speech or the freedom of the Press. Instead, they stand up for the freedom of left-wing radicalized speech and press, while calling for the suppression of all opposing voices, much like what happened during the Soviet Union’s rule, and in Nazi Germany!
Therefore, it is no wonder as to why CNN averaged only 767,000 prime time viewers, compared to that of Fox News’ 2.4 million! However, CNN has made it abundantly clear that they put Marxist ideology over that of not only the interests and needs of the American people but even their fiscal bottom line!
