CNN’s New Boss Makes Groveling “Apology Tour” to GOP Lawmakers “We Want To Win Back Your Trust”

CNN is a mess right now. I can’t believe how disorganized and off the rails they are, even after new ownership has taken over. They vowed to turn the “fake news” cable network around, and return the embattled network to its glory days before everyone caught Stage 5 TDS, and when they just reported the news. But it’s kind of impossible to do that when you still employ TDS lunatics like Don Lemon, Brian Stelter, and Jim Acosta. I have said it before, and I will say it again if CNN is truly serious about winning back lost viewers and guests, they need to show that with ACTIONS, not words. They need to get rid of the toxic and divisive opinion peddlers and fake news spreaders who’ve insulted half the country on a daily basis. If they don’t do that, they won’t recover. Period.

But it seems CNN isn’t focused on actual recovery and rebranding. Instead, they’re trying to win back GOP lawmakers, and get them to return to the network. New boss Chris Licht is now on a “groveling apology tour,” begging GOP lawmakers for forgiveness, and promising them that his team can now be trusted.

Suuuurrre bet, Chris…

Radar Online reported that CNN chairman and CEO Chris Licht is desperately trying to win back Republican viewers by having GOP lawmakers return as guests to the network, Radar has learned.

As RadarOnline.com previously reported, Licht was named head of CNN in April nearly three months after his predecessor, Jeff Zucker, was forced to resign from the network in disgrace for failing to disclose his relationship with fellow network executive Allison Gollust.

While Licht was appointed to save the struggling network from a slew of scandals that included not only Zucker and Gollust’s resignations but also the abrupt firing of Chris Cuomo, the 50-year-old newsman, and producer was also appointed to rescue CNN from a plague of plummeting ratings.

That is why, in mid-July, Licht reportedly secretly met with a number of Republicans on the first floor of the U.S. Capitol building in an effort to convince the lawmakers to return as guests on CNN.

In fact, according to the Washington Free Beacon, Licht had one simple message for the Republican lawmakers: “We want to win back your trust.”

Although Licht’s meetings and conversations with Republicans at the Capitol last week largely remained private, lawmakers who spoke to the Washington Free Beacon told the outlet that the new CNN chief pleaded for them to return to the air on the network and that he promised they would be “treated fairly.”

Meanwhile, this is the same guy who is kicking around the idea of stealing TDS KING Stephen Colbert away from late-night (his ratings are in the gutter) and bringing him to CNN, along with Morning Joe, another TDS nightmare.

If this guy was really serious about changing, and actually knew what he was doing, he’d hire somebody like Candice Owena to host a show and at least begin to balance out the opinions from Lemon, Stelter, and Acosta… Until he makes an actual BOLD move, I will say he’s nothing but a bunch of pointless hot air.
