Ratings Starved CNN Drops Over 100 Employees Through ‘Voluntary Buyouts’

If you ever actually tune in to CNN, you would never know anything is wrong at the far left, anti-Trump network. Their hosts act like they are the most important voices in the world.

The truth however, is that they are not in great shape. They just dumped over 100 employees through buyouts. That’s shorthand for layoffs.

Struggling CNN is reducing headcount as the network moves into a luxurious new headquarters, leaving some staffers worried in the process.

Over 100 CNN employees have already decided to accept a voluntary buyout option, with CNN International executive vice president Tony Maddox among the staffers departing the ratings-challenged network after 21 years at the company.

CNN confirmed the buyouts after rumors began circulating that there would be mass layoffs at the network.

“There are no mass layoffs at CNN. I have no idea where that crazy rumor came from. We have recently offered a voluntary buyout option for employees, and just over 100 people voluntarily decided to take it. That’s it,” executive vice president Allison Gollust told Fox News. “‎We have nearly 4,000 people at CNN… and around 100 of them exercised the option for a program that was offered. That’s it. Those are the facts.”
