CNN is attempting to rebuild their credibility after spending all their political capital pushing nonstop lies and disinformation to get Donald Trump out of office.
Former CNN president Jeff Zucker was replaced with Chris Licht back in February. Licht was tasked with working together with David Zaslav, the CEO of CNN's parent company Warner Bros. Discovery, to supposedly take the network in a new direction.
"Sadly too many people have lost trust in the news media," Licht said in a memo to employees on his first day as chairman and CEO. "I think we can be a beacon in regaining that trust by being an organization that exemplifies the best characteristics in journalism: fearlessly speaking truth to power, challenging the status quo, questioning 'group-think' and educating viewers and readers with straightforward facts and insightful commentary, while always being respectful of differing viewpoints. First and foremost, we should, and we will be advocates for truth."
As we've seen in the past, they're likely going to produce some good content and do some hard-hitting journalism over the next year or so to get viewers back at which point they'll spend all their political capital once again pushing nonstop lies and disinformation to influence the 2024 election.
We've seen this same formula used time and time again.
From NPR, "Brian Stelter to depart CNN as it cancels 'Reliable Sources' media show":
CNN is canceling its Sunday media affairs show Reliable Sources, and host Brian Stelter is departing the network, Stelter tells NPR.Perhaps Stelter's finest work was his article telling people to stop "doing your own research" because it was "hurting" the US's pandemic response.
It was also hilarious when "Mr. Journalists Are Under Attack" himself came out to defend Israel blowing up a civilian tower housing journalists from the AP and other outlets.
"What were the Israelis supposed to do?!" Stelter squealed.
Stelter's show got terrible ratings and what little influence he had has withered away now that no one is watching CNN to get all the latest news on Drumpf.
He will not be missed.
