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.

Actor Vince Vaughn Stands His Ground About Viral Trump Meeting

Actor Vince Vaughn is standing his ground and refusing to apologize for a viral meeting he had with President Donald Trump during a college football game that took place earlier this year in January, despite massive backlash he received after the whole thing hit the Internet. Folks, we desperately need more individuals in the entertainment industry like Vince Vaughn who aren’t afraid to speak their minds and won’t back down from doing so when the radical leftists in our nation attempt to silence their voices. via Daily Wire: Rejecting the political Left’s new and fierce adherence to “cancel culture,” Vaughn said he was raised “with the idea that you could have different likes and beliefs and you should respect and defend that in other people, not shout it down.” The “Old School” actor was asked during a recent interview with the Los Angeles Times about the backlash from the Trump interaction and calls from the Left to “cancel” him. “In my career I’ve met a lot of politicians who I’ve always been cordial to; I’ve met Nancy Pelosi and was cordial to her as well,” Vaughn explained. “It was the only time I’ve ever met him. We said hello. He was very personable. I didn’t get into policies.” “I think people are more charged than ever about these things,” the 50-year-old actor went on to say. “But I don’t think most people take that stuff as seriously as the small percentage that’s making noise about it.” “I was raised with the idea that you could have different likes and beliefs and you should respect and defend that in other people, not shout it down,” Vaughn stated. “The people you disagree with the most, you should stand up for their right to do that.” In the past, Vaughn has been an…

Check Out This List Of Celebrities Who Have Promised To Leave America If Trump Wins

Published

on

During the last election cycle in 2016, a number of famous folks in a wide range of industries were so distraught by the idea of a President Donald Trump that they vowed to flee from the country if he took home a victory over Hillary Clinton. Fast forward four years later, and basically, none of those people went anywhere. You know why? Because there is no other country on the planet where they can make the obscene amounts of money they pull down for playing music or starring in films, while also not being taxed into oblivion. It’s all just blustering. You’d think they’d be quiet about that kind of thing this go around, knowing that none of us in the real world believe their childish ranting. But, here we are, in 2020, and celebrities are once again making promises they do not intend to keep. via Daily Wire: Bruce Springsteen The Boss said he’d quit the U.S. and just might move to Australia if Trump wins reelection on Nov. 3. “I would consider that,” he said Oct. 14 during a virtual chat with Australian press, according to The Daily Mail. “I love Australia,” he said. “Every time, we have nothing but good times down there. It’s always a treat to come. Love the people, love the geography, great place for motorcycle trips, it’s close to our hearts.” The Boss also went on to predict without a doubt that President Trump would lose on Tuesday, and that if he’s wrong he’ll “see you on the next plane.” Tommy Lee, drummer for Motley Crue said he finds America “embarrassing” and thinks that folks in Europe mock us and said if Trump wins he’s “out of here.” Good riddance. “Dude, I swear to God if that happens, then I’m coming over to…
