Honestly I'm surprised he lasted for as long as he did. CNN has been a dumpster fire for years under his leadership. CNN routinely got its ass kicked in the ratings coupled with scandal after scandal. He clearly was not good at his job there.

I think this may be a situation of checkers versus chess. CNN’s ratings have been fucking horrible for ages. Yet no change of course no management shake up, nothing.

I’m thinking he did his job all too well.

CNN ratings in the toilet, reputation in the toilet, public trust in the toilet, picking fights with podcasters because they're more successful than you, sex scandals with producers and executives. Resigns because of a relationship that everyone knew about. bullshit. I wouldn't be surprised if Ghislaine Maxwell mentioned his name just to put a cherry on top of that sundae.

It's going to be interesting to see what happens with CNN. Do the new owners mandate a shift away from left wing bias or do they stay the course?

I think the chief investor said that theyre going to get back to real journalism and away from the left wing, opinion driven shows

Its hard to imagine a leadership team being so disconnected from reality that they thought this to be the case. I suppose it explains the content they provide
CNN Thought It Had 29 Million 'Superfans' Who'd Pay for CNN+

In the days since the unceremonious demise of CNN+ after a short-lived existence, more information has emerged about what CNN's executives hoped to do with its streaming platform...and it's incredibly on-brand for the cable news outlet that claims to be the "most trusted."

According to presentations obtained and reported by Axios, CNN+ was expected to become *more* profitable than CNN's cable channel that typically makes around $500 million profit per year. As has become clear since last week's announcement that CNN+ would be shut down, its new parent company Warner Bros. Discovery was not enthused by the entry into premium streaming content. "The service also did not fit in with Discovery's broader plans to create one giant, general entertainment streaming service," Axios noted.

The pitch materials, per Axios, show "[f]inancial projections were based on internal CNN+ research that assumed CNN+ could one day attract nearly 30 million global subscriptions from a total addressable market of roughly 72 million people."

Those groups of potential subscribers were broken down to include "29 million 'CNN super fans,' 24 million 'news and non-fiction SVOD (subscription video on demand) fans,' and 36 million 'global news consumers' (people who already paid for a news subscription." Huh?

In 2021, CNN's top-rated show was Anderson Cooper 360, which was number 25 overall in cable news viewership — according to AdWeek — drew an average of 1.255 million viewers for his 8:00 p.m. ET show. But CNN thought there were 29 million superfans who'd pay for more content from the source they barely already watch compared to Fox News.

In any case, CNN's leadership saw the roughly 150,000 CNN+ subscribers as a success, but Warner Bros. Discovery executives apparently did not. And while CNN pushed for the streaming platform as an "off-ramp for CNN's linear TV network," their own market research showed dubious conclusions about consumers' interest for paid streaming news.

Per Axios:

Internal research for CNN+ from a May 2021 research document obtained by Axios shows the value proposition for a paid news video service was never clear for consumers, who were increasingly suffering from news fatigue.

"We did not hear a self-declared appetite for more premium live news shows from any of our personas," the research concluded, based on 18 one-hour interviews with potential CNN+ customers.

So, despite their own research showing consumers were sick of news (and even more sick of CNN), CNN+ plunged ahead with its launch — that didn't include some of the biggest streaming devices and smart TVs — believing that they had nearly 30 million "super fans" along with others who would jump at the opportunity to fork over their cash to see even more of Brian Stelter. No wonder it lasted barely one month before being (perhaps mercifully) killed by Warner Bros. Discovery.

Nice try. But 445,000 Americans had already died before Biden took office.
Perhaps Biden could have done better if Trump hadn't rolled out the welcome mat for the virus.

or perhaps he could have done better if he actually had a plan, like he promised he did. we all knew there was no plan. nor could there be a plan. you guys capitalized on it to win an election and it worked. you can let off the gas now and admit it.

Rolled out the welcome mat?

Trump gets called names for trying to stop travel from China. While Pelosi is saying come to Chinatown.


Biden reverses Trump border rules and allows uncounted numbers of unvaxxed in. Turns out that don’t matter cause the vax don’t stop the spread,

that's because we finally had a leader with a plan, the democratic governors had learned not to force covid positive patients into nursing homes, the doctors had learned how to treat patients rather than putting them on ventilators, we got a vaccine, we finally had some therapeutics that worked, and.... wait.

Got it!
President Trump wasn't inept. If you'll recall, He instituted a travel ban from China and other shithole countries to try to keep infected foreigners out... and was called a fucking RACIST FOR IT! Nevermind that He didn't ban specific races or colors of people or ethnic groups; no, He banned people from those countries no matter their race. But because the left is infuriated when we're not bending over for foreigners at our expense, the left resorted to their go-to, default tactic: cry racism, even when there is none!

You'll recall that He had been increasing deportations and turn-aways of illegals and potentially-infected asylum-seekers as well. Not to mention that He got as much of our badly-needed border wall built as He could despite constant democrat obstruction. Bit again, because the left wants our borders open, and because the left wants us to take in all the world's trash, they bitched about that too.

This virus and all the deaths resulting from it are 100% China's fault. But obstructionist democrats should accept some of the blame too, because of their constant interference with potentially mitigating efforts from President Trump.

To be fair, he's been a racist for decades.

To portray him as showing any semblance of empathy is purely delusional.
