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.

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.

Fox News Employees Resign Over Tucker Carlson’s Latest Jan 6 Series

The pair were incensed at Carlson’s claims.

Published

Fox News

Tucker Carlson is no stranger to controversy, having helmed one of the most popular television shows in the mainstream media, but his latest look at the events of January 6th appears to have irked some at Fox News.

Carlson’s “Patriot Purge” series examines the pervasive theory that the event itself was a “false flag” attack, carried out by the enemies of American conservatism, in an effort to vilify those who identify as right-of-center.

The premise did not sit well with at least two of Fox News’ longtime employees.

Fox News contributors Jonah Goldberg and Stephen Hayes have resigned following the release of Tucker Carlson’s documentary on the January 6 Capitol insurrection, “Patriot Purge,” citing concerns about the documentary’s potential to incite violence and the cable news outlet’s direction of coverage in the post-Trump era, The New York Times reported.

Goldberg and Hayes joined Fox News as contributors in early 2009 while also working for conservative political magazines. In 2019, they worked together to found The Dispatch, a conservative online publication with nearly 30,000 paying subscribers, according to The New York Times.

The pair believed that Carlson’s docu-series was inherently “dangerous”.

“This is not happening. And we think it’s dangerous to pretend it is. If a person with such a platform shares such misinformation loud enough and long enough, there are Americans who will believe — and act upon — it,” Goldberg and Hayes said in a statement. “This isn’t theoretical. This is what actually happened on January 6, 2021.”

The news comes just days after another Fox News personality, legendary journalist Geraldo Rivera, spoke out about the content of “Patriot Purge”, stating bluntly that he found the allegations of a false flag attack to be “bulls***”.
