REPORT: New Management At CNN Preparing To Fire ‘Partisan’ Hosts

New management at CNN is reportedly preparing to cut away the network’s dead wood.

They want to get rid of the most partisan anti-Trump hosts. Brian Stelter and Jim Acosta are mentioned by name in the report.

The thing is, if CNN truly wants to get back to some semblance of credible reporting, they are going to have to fire alot more people than that.

Axios reports:

Why it matters: If talent cannot adjust to a less partisan tone and strategy, they could be ousted, three sources familiar with the matter tell Axios.

Details: Licht wants to give personalities that may appear polarizing a chance to prove they’re willing to uphold the network’s values so that they don’t tarnish CNN’s journalism brand.

– For on-air talent, that includes engaging in respectful interviews that don’t feel like PR stunts. For producers and bookers, that includes making programming decisions that are focused on nuance, not noise.

Between the lines: CNN’s tone became more partisan and combative during the Trump era and under the leadership of former CNN president Jeff Zucker.

– To conservative critics, some on-air personalities, like Jim Acosta and Brian Stelter, have become the face of the network’s liberal shift.

Stelter and Acosta are a great place to start.

Very few people will miss them.
