Chris Cillizza Is Latest High Profile Figure To Be Let Go By CNN

Chris Cillizza is the latest high profile personality to be let go by CNN in its latest round of cuts.

Cillizza is the person who famously and hilariously claimed that when it comes to politics, reporters don’t root for a side.

That is demonstrably false, especially at CNN.

Mediaite reports:

CNN’s Chris Cillizza Laid Off In Latest Round of Job Cuts Roiling Network

CNN’s Politics Reporter and Editor-at-Large Chris Cillizza has reportedly been let go from the network, where he has worked since 2017 after a long stint as a political commentator at the Washington Post.

At CNN, Cillizza’s “reporting lives under the brand, ‘The Point with Chris Cillizza,’ and includes a nightly newsletter and weekday Amazon Echo and Google Home flash briefings. He also hosts CNN Audio’s ‘Downside Up’ podcast.”

The news of Cillizza’s departure is the latest major cut made by new CNN CEO Chris Licht, who terminated Brian Stelter’s Reliable Sources and axed White House Correspondent John Harwood — two leading critics of the GOP and former President Donald Trump at the network.

Cillizza will exit CNN with mixed reviews as the political commentator, known for churning out articles, listicles, and “hot takes” has at times been the target of much derision online…

Variety’s Brian Steinberg first reported on Cillizza’s departure, which coincides with the layoffs of “CNN correspondents Alison Kosik, Martin Savidge, Alex Field, and Mary Ann Fox.” Licht made clear to CNN staffers in late October that cuts were coming, writing in an email that “these changes will not be easy.”

So long, Chris.

He can always try for MSNBC, right?
