Well, It’s Official, The CNN “Reboot” Has Gone Careening Off The Rails

Well, It’s Official, The CNN “Reboot” Has Gone Careening Off The Rails

I read this piece from Radar Online, with my jaw hanging open. I don’t know why I am surprised, for crying out loud, you’d think I’d know better, but some tiny part of me actually thought the new folks over at CNN were at least smart enough to figure out how to be “unbias.” I mean, it’s not that hard. But after what I just read, I’ve chucked in the towel, and written off any hope whatsoever, that CNN can become a place that reports the news, instead of a TDS fake news factory, pumping out left-wing propaganda day and night.

So, what did I read that threw me for a loop and convinced me that CNN’s new boss, Chris Licht is a complete and utter lunatic who doesn’t know what the hell he’s doing? Well, Radar reported that Chris has an insane new plan in the works… he’s thinking the best way to boost ratings and shed the “overly biased” persona that CNN’s earned over the Trump years, is to go out and hire the biggest “TDS King” on TV…

Stephen Colbert.

This man is honestly, certifiable. Radar goes on to say that Chris Licht doesn’t only have his eyes set on MSNBC stars Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski — the new CNN boss also wants another prized get: Stephen Colbert.

The longtime former executive producer of MSNBC’s Morning Joe and CBS This Morning has quietly sounded out the new king of late night about adding the cable giant to his growing list of commitments, two sources confirmed to Radar.

Licht also served as head honcho at The Late Show with Stephen Colbert before replacing Jeff Zucker, who was fired after RadarOnline.com revealed his affair with an underling.

“Chris realizes not only he could persuade Colbert to leave the plum gig of the Late Show but he desperately wants to integrate Colbert into the network,” one insider confided to this website.

“He is looking at CBS’ longtime ‘relationship’ with CBS that allowed CNN’s top talent like Anderson Cooper and Sanjay Gupta to file for 60 Minutes as a means by which to find a way to get Colbert involved at CNN.

“Chris and Colbert worked wonders in late night and together again, they could just help CNN out of the ratings’ abyss.

“It would be a programming shake-up for CNN, that’s for certain. Satire and comedy? On CNN? But together, they (Licht and Colbert) proved that politics can work in prime-time on CBS, so who’s to bet against the prospect that comedy and satire cannot work on cable news.”

Never mind that Colbert’s ratings have flat-lined, after crashing 45 percent last year. The guy is attracting nobody new, because all he does is bash Republicans and Trump, and discuss social and political issues like an activist, not a comedian. This would be the worst idea if Chris is actually serious about bringing CNN back to its “news roots.” As a matter of fact, I can’t think of anyone who would be a worse hire, except maybe Jimmy Kimmel. Clearly, the new bosses at CNN don’t have a clue, and they’ll just keep hemorrhaging viewers until they finally pull the plug and put CNN and America, out of its misery.
