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.

‘Aquaman’ Jason Momoa Tells Chris Pratt Not To Use Plastic Water Bottles; Pratt Responds With ‘You’re Completely Right.’

Published

Liberal Hollywood actors have a tendency to think more highly of themselves than they ought, and nothing points out this inflated ego than one crusader for a cause scolding a fellow actor for doing something that violates their delicate belief system. Which is precisely what happened when “Aquaman” star Jason Momoa took a swipe at his colleague, megastar Chris Pratt for using a plastic water bottle in a post he put up on social media. Here’s more from Daily Wire: Thankfully, however, Pratt diffused the situation with a gracious response, and Momoa followed that with a follow-up post calling Pratt an “inspiration.” “Bro [I] love [you] but [what the f***] on the water bottle,” Momoa complained in the comment section. “No single use plastic. [C]ome on.” The purpose of Pratt’s post was part of a collaboration with Amazon: “You’re probably wondering why I’m standing here, low key flexing, gazing into the distance… well, turns out I’m teaming up with [Amazon] to show you guys everything I use for my workouts, keeping active, and all that fun stuff to get you prepped for 2020,” the movie star captioned the gym photo.   View this post on Instagram   You’re probably wondering why I’m standing here, low key flexing, gazing into the distance… well, turns out I’m teaming up with @amazon to show you guys everything I use for my workouts, keeping active, and all that fun stuff to get you prepped for 2020. #FoundItOnAmazon #Amazon #Ad http://www.amazon.com/chrispratt A post shared by chris pratt (@prattprattpratt) on Dec 3, 2019 at 8:46am PST Pratt responded with, “Aquaman!

Kanye West Asked ‘Jesus Is King’ Employees To Abstain From Pre-Marital Sex; Says Porn Is ‘Not Okay’

Superstar rap artist Kanye West, who has been all over the news for the last few months due to his open proclamation of Christian conversion, recently opened up about the making of his latest album set to be released soon, “Jesus Is King,” saying he told employees working on the album they had to abstain from pre-marital sex. West also went on to slam pornography saying it’s “not okay.” Here’s more from The Daily Wire: “When collaborating with others on ‘Jesus Is King,’ West set up some lifestyle guidelines that they would have to abide by in order be part of the project,” Billboard reported. “Yeezy asked others to fast during portions of creating and also not partake in any premarital sex at times, which he knew would receive some blowback once it became public.” “There were times where I was asking people not to have premarital sex while they were working on the album,” West told Lowe, noting, “When people pray together and fast together, the power is increased.” The 42-year-old explained that he no longer views himself as a “slave” to the music industry, but as a “free” “son of God” spreading the gospel. West went on to talk about how he feels he has now been called to spread the gospel with his platform, noting how he used to talk about high fashion, alcohol, and others things that had a profound impact on his life. But now, however, all that’s changed. Jesus is what he’s all about now. “Now that I’m in service to Christ, my job is to spread the gospel, to let people know what Jesus has done for me. I’ve spread a lot of things. There was a time I was letting you know what high fashion had done for me, I was letting…
