CNN’s economic indicators indicate that ‘Leftist-Wokism’ is unpopular with the public, so the network’s executives have made major executive changes to the failing network, dumping a number of radical far leftist personalities who have been heavily promoted and have received so much airtime over the years.
If their communist message resonated with the public, staff and message changes would not be taking place.
According to The Wrap, CNN host Don Lemon was just fired from his primetime show as a prominent anchor and would be relocated to mornings, while “New Day” is being canceled.
CNN announced this week that Don Lemon will relinquish his evening primetime show to co-host the network’s revamped morning show alongside Poppy Harlow and Kaitlan Collins.
“The new morning program will launch later this year with a new name, format, and set, marking the conclusion of “Don Lemon Tonight’s” eight-year run.
CNN has not said how it will fill Lemon’s primetime slot, which has traditionally trailed behind “The Ingraham Angle” on Fox News in the ratings.
John Berman and Brianna Keilar, who presently host CNN’s ratings-challenged “New Day,” may transition to different duties later this year, according to a report by Martin Walsh for Conservative Brief.
This year, CNN has undergone a huge shift as a result of its viewership decline. This month, a second anchor was let adrift.
“CNN White House Correspondent John Harwood was fired from the television network only hours after praising President Joe Biden’s anti-MAGA Republican speech.
CNN has been undergoing adjustments in an effort to move toward a more moderate reporting approach and away from partisan bias, and as a result, certain CNN stars have been let go.
“Neither the network nor Harwood said on whether he was fired, resigned, or it was a mutual choice, but the timing had many wondering if his appreciation for President Biden’s contentious address was the reason for his departure,” Walsh observed.
Harwood said in a tweet, “personal news: today’s my last day at CNN proud of the work thanks to my colleagues i’ve been lucky to serve the best in American media – St. Petersburg Times, WSJ, NYT, the NBC family, CNN look forward to figuring out what’s next.”

It came hours after Harwood made his opinion known on President Biden’s speech when he appeared on the CNN show “New Day.”
“The core point he made in that political speech about a threat to democracy is true. Now, that’s something that’s not easy for us, as journalists, to say. We’re brought up to believe there’s two different political parties with different points of view and we don’t take sides in honest disagreements between them. But that’s not what we’re talking about,” he said.
Before announcing that today was his last day, John Harwood appeared on CNN three times this morning. During one appearance, apparently knowing it was his last day, he told viewers that Biden's "core point" about a MAGA "threat to democracy is true."https://t.co/tRuw2ZkfxB pic.twitter.com/VN24SZOZKc

“These are not honest disagreements. The Republican Party right now is led by a dishonest demagogue. Many, many Republicans are rallying behind his lies about the 2020 election and other things as well. And a significant portion—or a sufficient portion—of the constituency that they’re leading attacked the Capitol on Jan. 6, violently. By offering pardons or suggesting pardons for those people who violently attacked the Capitol, which you’ve been pointing out numerous times this morning, Donald Trump made Joe Biden’s point for him,” he said.
Biden's assertion that Trump and extremist Republicans pose a threat to American democracy is, undeniably, true

Pending any other explanation, this looks to be a second public sacrifice and warning to the CNN staff, after Stelter's. https://t.co/LEgvdWJZnB

Before that, he agreed with the premise of President Biden’s speech on Twitter.
“Biden’s assertion that Trump and extremist Republicans pose a threat to American democracy is, undeniably, true,” he said.

so John got sacked for forthrightly stating what the Trump movement is, do I have that right? https://t.co/IqxIskKga6

But many were furious with Harwood’s departure and the changes at CNN.
“Pending any other explanation, this looks to be a second public sacrifice and warning to the CNN staff, after Stelter’s,” NYU journalism professor Jay Rosen posted.
“so John got sacked for forthrightly stating what the Trump movement is, do I have that right?” “Left Anchor” host Ryan Cooper posted in response.
“This is very sad. @JohnJHarwood represents the best of journalism, besides being a terrific person,” Norman Ornstein posted.
The love affair between the leftist journalists and the administrative state is curious because the message from these groups does not resonate with the people who they desperately need for ratings and elections.
In a weird twist of fate- there really may be a new day at the media news network, where smart people may figure out how to make money on messages the people want to hear.
The Shakeup at CNN is a major indicator that the country is really not that into a leftist woke culture.
