Now THIS is some fake news. CNN has a new president, Chris Licht. He used to work for Stephen Colbert and now he’s going to be president of CNN. And the media is all buzzing about his plan to tone it down on all the liberal preaching on the network.
Allow me to be among the first to say: HA HA HA HAAAAA. Yeah no.
This is a ruse, folks. Here’s Axios’s “scoop” on it.
Under new chief Chris Licht, CNN will dial down the prime-time partisanship and double down on the network’s news-gathering muscle, top sources tell me.
Why it matters: Ratings are secondary to credibility, in the view of Warner Bros. Discovery CEO David Zaslav, who’s taking over CNN.
Come on, man.
Chris Licht will take Jeff Zucker’s place as CNN’s president. And if you believe that the former executive producer of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and MSNBC’s Morning Joe is going to steer the network away from prime-time partisanship given that track record… OK then. https://t.co/5D2PyOHtQp

Meet the new boss, same as the old boss.
They’re going to try to sell their liberal claptrap as news. That’s all. It will the same amount, more even. They are just signaling they won’t admit it’s liberal, and pretending that they admitted it before, which they didn’t.
CNN Can’t Stop Grifting. That should be their new slogan.
