UH OH: Struggling CNN just dumped a lot of employees…

The struggling media giant is trying to stay afloat in the tough world of liberal ratings and has just let a bunch of employees go:

FOX NEWS – Sanjay Gupta is safe, but much of the rest of CNN’s Atlanta-based staff that covers health care found out Tuesday they are getting pink slips — only a few weeks after the network called mass layoffs a “crazy rumor.”

Specific details were not yet known, but a source told Fox News that “basically the whole division” will lose their jobs.

CNN did not respond to multiple requests for comment.

TVNewser, a media watchdog site started by CNN’s Brian Stelter, managed to get confirmation from the network — just in time for a Friday news dump.

“As part of the normal course of business, our newsgathering team made a small restructure earlier this week that ultimately impacts 6-7 employees within CNN’s Health Unit,” a CNN spokesperson told TVNewser’s A.J. Katz.

Don’t be fooled by CNN’s statement. This is a whole division and it effects more than just 6 or 7 employees.



In fact they are buying out more that 100 employees as they shed weight:

Staffers are shocked, as the health department is considered successful and CNN recently declared that no layoffs were imminent.

The more than 100 CNN employees who decided to accept a voluntary buyout option included CNN International executive vice president Tony Maddox, who left the ratings-challenged network after 21 years

CNN has been struggling for ratings for a long time and I guess that apple commerical didn’t help.

They used to compete with MSNBC for last place, but MSNBC has risen a lot thanks to all of their super hype and lies about the Mueller report.

  1. Shhhh! Dirty, dirty little sekrit #1…

    The sh*t-lib media are being kept afloat by foreign $$.

    Dirty, not-so-little sekrit #2…

    These clowns all made dang sure that FARA violations were a Huge Freakin’ Deal to own Trump. And realized late in the 4th quarter that FARA law isn’t just for government employees.

    In other words, they all screwed themselves right good and proper.

    Soros money.
    Qatar money.
    Erdoğan money.
    CHYnah money.

    How to catch a monkey. Evidently it works every time.

    1. Probably why Al Jazeera failed here too. Apparently, they all have so much money and need the losses…CNN and MSNBC, NYT, etc. are great for needed tax losses…and it is a great way to drain evil a-holes like satan-soros of their money.

  2. None of your topics is about the declassification… and I want to talk about it.

    Sorry, but do any of you read the Last Refuge? I don’t’ always, but they have got a bomb shell tonight.

    The Obama administration has been systematically spying on Americans since at least 2012. They used the IRS, and the NSA, I’m not sure I’ve got it all in my head right, but they were found out when Trump came in and all the stuff about investigating Trump was to cover their tracks. About 85% of the queries in the FBI/NSA data base were illegal searches… a judge said that… they were using it against political opponents for at least 4 years…

    It’s so complicated, I don’t know how we get this communicated but this is bigger than Trump by far!

    They were so sure they would win because the system was rigged!!!

    In fact, I think one of the only reasons Trump won is that they had all the others pinned down with their snooping. Then Trump comes along and is not a politician and breaks their system.

    The whole investigation, was made up to cover up the illegal spying on Americans they have been doing… Mueller was head of the FBI when it started… everyone involved in the “investigation” was there to help cover it up!

    This is huge. And it’s so much bigger than Trump. They weren’t even after Trump he was just the excuse!

    1. Yup, too bad free markets don’t exist everywhere, and bad Governments too often prop up bad businesses. Can you say “NPR”?

    1. And if they’re going to learn to code, they need to learn how to blame health issues on climate change and racism.

  3. Hear that? …that must be the world’s tiniest violin playing a lament.

    Well, they just need to find something profitable they can do. Maybe they could learn a new skill…like coding?

    Just trying to help.

    #LearnToCode

    1. @TXGRunner This old broad would sure appreciate it if someone would explain this “code” & “learn to code” thing to me! I’ve missed something somewhere along the way.

      1. My daughter is taking coding lessons. As I understand it, it is learning computer language.

      2. @lillie-belle
        Obummer was putting coal miners out of work. Journalists (/S) were writing articles on how to learn to code. Basically they were telling miners to change professions.

        When media started having layoffs, turnabout was fair play. To troll the media, people were saying learn to code…(change profession, your job died)

      3. TJK explained it perfectly. The media were telling miners to “learn to code.” When online magazines started failing left and left with massive layoffs, clever folks on twitter responded to their sob stories with #LearnToCode.

        Naturally, Twitter deleted those tweets and instantly suspended anybody so cruel as to tell a journalist who just lost their job to #LearnToCode, even when the same journalist just a few months earlier was telling a coal miner the same thing.

  4. CNN Reported that there would be no layoffs. This layoff just proves what their standard of journalism as does their report that there would be no layoff.

  5. If it wasn’t for the couple of dollars they make off of cable, satellite subscribers, and the airports lyin’ CNN would have gone the way of the dodo bird.

  6. THis fake news network is garbage in USA, the domestic CNN is a trash but internationally, it is huge and they compete worldwide with BBC world news. I can tolerate CNN international but not the CNN USA.

  7. And all they have to do to survive if not thrive is be fair and non-partisan in their coverage. They are blinded by their political views and goals.

  8. I hope AT&T (after their asinine buyout of Warner Media) just let’s CNN die. Since AT&T is trying to eliminate 200 billion (with a B) dollars of debt, this is a great place to start.

  9. Man, even their own employees can’t believe what they say.

    Guess they should all learn to code!

  11. A couple weeks ago I began taking my mother-in-law in for physical therapy twice a week . The TV in the waiting room is set on CNN and is adorned with a big sign saying “Don’t change the channel “! It is so irritating and my blood pressure goes up the hour I have to sit there exposed to it. The most irritating part…….NOBODY is ever watching or paying attention to it. They could turn it off and no one would notice or care.

    1. I’d change it and if they whine say fine, say you can’t take watching that crap channel and say you’d rather watch the TV off or the shopping channel then the garbage being spewed on that channel. Tell them you have high blood pressure and that channel sends your blood pressure through the roof. See if they challenge you. I bet they would probably back down and find a safe space! Hah! 😛

    2. It’s like the airports, they play CNN, there must be some kind of cabal making that happen.

      That is how CNN gets the ratings it still has, public places, being big brother forcing the propaganda down people’s throats.

    3. Doctor’s offices get paid to force patients in waiting rooms to watch this garbage.

  13. They’re a propaganda outlet. They’re hoping their commie friends will gain power soon and bail them out. I hope they crash hard and burn to the ground.

  23. CNN’s rating are so bad that the cooking channel’s ratings eclipse theirs. Now that the Mueller investigation is over MSNBC’s, Richard Maddow’s ratings have plummeted.

  24. Burden of proof now shifts – can CNN prove they are NOT a taxpayer-funded disinformation front for the CIA and/or a big government union consortium?

  25. I feel badly for anyone who loses their job but the network really did this to themselves.

    1. Self inflicted wound.
      And if it were not for airports, bus stations, etc., they wouldn’t have an audience.

    2. @sjmom I can’t feel sorry for people that willingly worked for a marxist propaganda outlet.

      1. @conserve-58 Sometimes you have to take a job because there are bills to pay. The people being let go aren’t the ones who should be………….like Jim Acosta.

    3. They should look at the silver lining: this is more of an opportunity to go out and learn a new skill.

      I hear there are lots of jobs in coding.
