The new management at CNN is trying to save what little reputation the network has left by attempting to implement a more centrist approach.
They haven’t even really pulled it off yet, but their small and very far left audience is furious and calling for a boycott of the network.
This is a good reminder that you can never really please the left. They will always find a reason to be angry.

Ticked-off Liberals Turn Against CNN, Launch Viral ‘#BoycottCNN’ Twitter Campaign
Since former President Donald Trump’s departure from the White House, CNN has struggled to pay the bills as a result of consistently pathetic post-Trump ratings and too many scandals to keep track of. But the legacy cable news network now faces an enemy within — in the form of its once-loyal and now-spicy viewers, and the collective power of their Twitter accounts.
On Monday evening, the hashtag “#BoycottCNN” made Twitter’s coveted trending list, which means a lot of people are seeing it. I nearly brushed it off thinking it was probably just a typical conservative-led boycott of the network.
I was wrong. It was way better than that.
The backlash from the apparent shift to a moderate editorial direction under new CNN chairman and CEO Chris Licht has clearly struck a nerve with its diehard, shrinking progressive audience. They’re absolutely steaming mad.
Check out the tweets below:
As an original staffer at CNN, I'm asking all of my former colleagues to express their serious concern with the new editorial direction the network is taking. It's horrifying to thing the #BoycottCNN folks have a point. Remember when Ted and Reese said "The News is the star"?

I used to have a bumper sticker on my old truck that said the Media is only as Liberal as the Conservatives that own it. CNN is proving the point. #BoycottCNN"

If I wanted to watch right-wing propaganda, I’d watch Fox. So for now, it’s ONLY @MSNBC for me.

These folks are not living in reality.
