CNN Takes Massive Hit as American Media Awakening Continues

Americans are neither naive or stupid, and that is why the mainstream media is failing to hold our attention.

television tv mainstream media infotainment

Americans are not dumb.  Not in the least.

We have all come of age in a nation where exploration is rewarded, and a society where our trials and tribulations are worn like a badge of pride.  Mistakes are nothing more than teachable moments for us, (or nothing less if your attitude is right), and we aren’t afraid of failure; we are only afraid of not mustering the gusto to try again.

Yes, that all sound very cliche, but it is this sense of purpose and drive that shapes our uniquely American cynicism.  We look at those who were handed something, and we think to ourselves, “did they deserve that?  Do they even know the value of what they’ve been gifted?”.

In the case of the mainstream media, this has never been truer than it is today.  We The People, cynics each and every one of us, look to the media today – nothing more than infotainment at this point – and we wonder if they deserve the respect they are given.

Sure, at one point, these television stations had an honorable duty of publishing relatively boring programming, (the news), while the rest of the nation glued themselves to sports, soap operas, game shows, and more.

Then came the reckoning of competition.  Where once we had only CNN, we now have dozens of 24-hour news stations in competition, attempting to pique our interest with their most salacious and scandalous stories.

And don’t get me started with their delivery….

But today the American people, thanks to the internet and the erosion of the taboo about questioning authority, are fighting back against the infotainment industry.  We are telling these opportunistic posses of punditry that we see through their schtick, and we don’t have to tune in anymore.

It’s an awakening in America, and CNN is feeling the brunt of it.

Far-left CNN announced Monday that more than 100 jobs have been axed at the ratings-challenged cable network.

These job cuts are being spun by Brian Stelter, CNN’s left-wing media reporter (who regularly spreads fake news and conspiracy theories), as “no layoffs” but rather “voluntary buyouts throughout the organization, and about 100 people opted for it.”

The “voluntary” semantics shuffle isn’t holding water over at Deadline, however.

In worse news, Deadline reports [emphasis added] that “more than 100 seasoned workers at the cable news network” lost their jobs — meaning veterans, old hands, those who have been around a while.

Deadline also makes clear that these “buyouts” are layoffs because CNN’s new parent company AT&T is looking to restructure and reduce debt.

CNN and others in the world of infotainment have long taken advantage of their relative positions of power and wealth, and are now falling victim to their own successes as the American people grow enlightened as to their antics.

STRANGER THAN FICTION: ‘Law and Order’ Mashes Ilhan Omar into Covington Catholic Scandal

This is lazy writing at its very finest.

virtue signaling

Day in and day out, writers in Hollywood work to create arcing storylines and thoughtful dialogue that we may hear passively while we’re cooking dinner. All of the work that goes into weekly television occurs ad nauseam, no matter the reality of the those producing it.  The show must go on, essentially, and there are times in which writers get a little bit lazy. Some of television’s most profound pieces of real estate fall victim to such concerns week after week, and these lazy and uninspired bits often conflate themselves into a loss of viewership.  It is this concern that has Law and Order:  SVU staff worried this week. NBC crime procedural Law & Order: Special Victims Unit featured a “ripped from the headlines” theme in its latest episode, which smeared the Covington Catholic kids by pitting them against an Ilhan Omar-styled character who is portrayed as a hero. The plot centered on a poor, put-upon Islamic city politician being confronted by a red ballcap-wearing crowd of young men who scream at her and taunt her. But the episode also throws in a big dollop of male oppression and lesbianism for good measure, Newsbusters reported. The Law & Order: SVU  episode entitled, “Assumptions,” opens with a pair of teenaged boys running away from a vandalized mosque in which we soon see that Muslim Councilwoman Nahla Nasar (Nazneen Contractor) has been raped. The story, which is an amalgam of two real life American situations, was undoubtedly meant to invoke the emotions of the politically-savvy US populace in order to sell commercials on NBC. This monetization of the American outrage machine is something worth monitoring, especially as we slip closer and closer to the possibility of a constitutional crisis…at least according to the liberal left.

Infotainment Personality from NBC Mocked After Likening Climate Change To…

Here is yet another example of the mainstream media turning to sideshow tactics to keep advertisers happy, while scaring the daylights out of the rest of us.

The American people seem to forget a very salient point regarding the mainstream media, seemingly on a daily basis: It’s all for show. The entirety of the television “news” industry is dependent upon selling commercial advertising space in between salacious segments of shouting, and it shows.  The competition is stiff on cable, too, creating an opportunity for networks to desperately grasp at niche demographics with their coverage. And while it certainly is entertaining, it doesn’t equate to too much else, especially in this digital world where the facts are easily attainable. This reality may be most prevalent in issues that are heavily divided down party lines and, therefore, tend to create the most drama…something that advertisers love. It’s the chasing of this revenue that has led on NBC infotainment personality to take his climate change rhetoric out of this world. An NBC News reporter raised eyebrows and prompted pushback from an MSNBC host after suggesting that climate change is like an alien invasion that is visible to everyone. The reporter, Jacob Ward, made the odd comparison following the release of the United Nations climate change report that claims a number of “transformative changes” will be needed to save nature and humanity from climate change and other threats. What exactly did he say? “Yeah, you know, it really is devastating, Stephanie. I mean, this is how dark the times are in the view of researchers… people are sort of getting ready for the horrors that this report is talking about. So it is dark times, I gotta say,” he told MSNBC’s Stephanie Ruhle during a Monday show. Ruhle then lamented that “there’s not even a consensus around climate change,” prompting Ward to make the comparison. “I know, I know. I mean, that’s the thing, right? You look at it and you think…
