The famous network CNN could be in a new business model on their hourly agenda that is highly partisan.
The former head of Mediaite, journalist Jon Nicosia, reported that Discovery, which is merging with CNN, executives want to drive each anchor and co-host to veer away from the preferential viewpoints.
Nicosia tweeted, “SOURCE: John Malone, Discovery’s board member, will ‘play a huge role in the new organization’s plans to return @CNN to its news channel roots and dismantle the partisan organization Zucker shifted it into’ They continue: ‘This will mean a large realignment of staff,'” he said
The journalist has broken this story through his Twitter account, with multiple updates. Jon Nicosia tweeted, “SOURCE UPDATE: ‘Malone is using CNN’s coverage of Ukraine as an example of the news network he wants back. Excellent journalists covering events without partisan peacocking.”
“SOURCE: This ‘realignment’ will start with @CNN Anchors. One (who was very close with Zucker) and will have a hard time transitioning away from opinion will ‘be out by the end of Spring,'” Nicosia tweeted.
Former President of CNN Jeff Zucker was forced to resign due to having a sexual affair with a long-time staffer. Zucker had confirmed the affair when he was interviewed concerning former CNN Anchor Chris Cuomo.
“As part of the investigation into Chris Cuomo’s tenure at CNN, I was asked about a consensual relationship with my closest colleague, someone I have worked with for more than 20 years. I acknowledged the relationship evolved in recent years. I was required to disclose it when it began but I didn’t. I was wrong. As a result, I am resigning today,” Zucker stated.
The CNN Anchor who is ‘close to Zucker’ will most likely not be able to handle the transition.
“Nicosia’s source could be referring to Brian Stelter or Don Lemon, both of whom were thought to be close with Zucker during his tenure at the network,” The Western Journal Reported.
“Both Stelter and Lemon have languished in the ratings dungeons in comparison to their peers since the start of 2021,” it said.
CNN’s attempt to bring back old viewers may interest enough Americans to keep the network afloat.
