CNN may be finally making changes to their anchor lineup, following a fall in ratings and ad revenue.
The network’s new president Chris Licht has been reaching out to Republicans and encouraging them to appear on the network but Republicans want nothing to do with CNN, for obvious reasons.
People at the top obviously know that nothing is going to change as long as they continue to showcase liberal activists like Don Lemon, Jake Tapper, Jim Acosta, Brian Stelter and others.
The Daily Mail reports:
CNN could revamp its anchor lineup this fall with personalities such as Kaitlan Collins as news network attempts to pivot away from ‘opinion-mongering personalities’ after profits dropped below $1 billion for the first time since 2016
CNN is considering a revamp of its anchor lineup, with less reliance on opinionated anchors like Don Lemon – a vocal critic of former President Donald Trump – and Brianna Keilar, in favor of the likes of White House Chief Correspondent Kaitlan Collins, after profits were projected to fall below $1 billion, a first since 2016.
The news network, spearheaded by new chief, Chris Licht, formerly of CBS News, is shifting back toward reporting straight news rather than airing discussion panels between opinionated contributors often criticizing Republican policies in favor of liberal ones.
‘CNN seems to be moving back more toward straight news and away from some of the blatant opinion-mongering by its anchors that characterized its past few years,’ Mark Feldstein, chairman of the broadcast journalism department at the University of Maryland and a former CNN correspondent, told Variety.
An insider source also told Radar that Licht’s vision and new management style is worrisome to the network’s star personalities, like Anderson Cooper and Don Lemon worried, as they were ‘used to being treated like stars, not staff.’
CNN has a lot of work to do if they want to once again be taken seriously.
This person writes opinion pieces for CNN:
At this point I LITERALLY view people who still support Donald Trump no different than the despicable, vile people who supported Bin Laden after 9/11.

Republican voters and candidates are not going to interact with a network that pushes that kind of vile rhetoric.
