What Could Have Caused This? CNN to Cut as Many as 300 Staffers




CNN to Cut as Many as 300 Staffers in Wake of Plummeting Ratings
May 6, 2019 ~ By Paula Bolyard
CNN is planning to cut up to 300 jobs, "many being older employees with years at the network," according to a report on Monday. According to FTVLive, a website that monitors the television industry, "Word is that just under 200 people will be pink slipped and just over 100 will be offered a buyout." Staffers are reportedly calling the cuts a "massive brain drain" because so many veteran employees are being given pink slips. The reported cuts come just as CNN is moving many of its New York operations and studios from the Time Warner Center to Hudson Yards.
The cuts come on the heels of devastating April ratings for CNN, with the lowest number of total viewers in five years. The network's prime-time lineup plummeted 26 percent in April compared to the same month last year. CNN's total audience in prime time was a pathetic 767,000. Compare that to Fox News, with 2.395 million viewers and third-place MSNBC with 1.660 million. CNN's Cuomo Primetime was one of the hardest hit, with a mere 971,000 viewers in April -- the worst month in the show's history. Sean Hannity, Cuomo's Fox counterpart in the 9 p.m. slot, dominated the ratings with a total audience of 3.086 million. Fox's Tucker Carlson Tonight came in second, with 2.834 million viewers and MSNBC's The Rachel Maddow Show was third with 2.630 million viewers.
There's no indication that the worst offenders -- Chris Cuomo, Brian Stelter, Manu Raju, Don Lemon, and Jim Acosta -- are going anywhere. Likely it's mostly the behind-the-scenes employees -- who have nothing to do with the network's editorial spin -- slated lose their jobs.

~~~~~~
Bu, bu, but, cut the pay of the goons at the top and those folks can keep their jobs, it's for the children! They can always learn to code, though. Wealth redistribution for thee, but not for me! That seems to be the executive motto at CNN, the DNC, etc.
This is what happens when you are nothing more than a subsidiary of Pravda for over 30 years. This is what happens when you chomp at the Russian bit for over two years and it EXPLODES in your STUPID commie faces. Next up: Federal charges against these seditious freaks of nature.

Here's what caused it: No collusion. No obstruction.
 
The primary purpose of journalism isn't to make money.

The primary purpose of journalism isn't to suck up to the people in power.

The primary purpose of journalism isn't to promote your political party over the other political party.

The primary purpose of journalism is to TELL THE TRUTH.

The journalists at CNN forgot that, and instead, TOLD LIES FOR TWO YEARS STRAIGHT.

Now the reckoning has come. People have lost faith in CNN and the network may go out of business.
 
Everyone who opposes Trump ultimately ends up in the trash heap.

17 Republican candidates for President, in the trash heap.

Hillary Clinton, in the trash heap.

CNN, in the trash heap.
 
Would have been even sweeter if Chris Cumo, Don Lemon and others got a pink slip and escorted out of the CNN building. Of course, they were - saved by the bell.
 
Hopefully Tapper will be one of them. I have not watched CNN since he went full stalker on the reddit user who created the meme of Trump knocking out the CNN logo in the boxing ring and CNN did nothing about it.
 
The people who run CNN made the business decision to engage in "Yellow Journalism" which is the practice of unethical journalism to boost ratings.

Now it's time to pay the piper.
 
Even in the Trump Economy...Jobs, Jobs,Jobs....These assholes are not qualified to do anything but shovel shit. That's all they've done for years at CNN.

Fortunately, they are hiring in San Francisco.

Oh poster please. NOBODY cuts staff based on one ratings book, or globally on ratings at all.

Y'all have no fucking idea in the world what "ratings" even means. They have ZERO to do with "spin". They have to do with how much ATTENTION they can give their advertisers. That's the ONE -- and the ONLY -- function or meaning ratings have: to set ad rates.

Y'all bubblists are so god damned gullible. Wanna buy a bridge?
 
Nobody in the history of mankind has more deserved to lose their jobs than these people.

Ultimately it's the networks responsibility.....ya do what the boss wants or allows. They f*cked up and instead of changing up the format to real news, they keep yacking TDS and now it's costing them a future

BULLSHIT.
Bullshit what? Do you disagree? Please explain why CNN's ratings have sunk so fast and they have to lay off 300 workers.

BULLSHIT.

Is it not the networks responsibility to present a watchable platform????? Don't the 'reporters' have to do what the boss wants? Or the reporters will do what is allowed??? Didn't they f*ck up to lose the ratings??? Did they change up the format from TDS to reporting real news??? And isn't it costing those 300 staffers a future with the company?????

So where's the bullshit?

Yes, you are full of shit. Thanks for pointing that out. The Clinton news network is cutting jobs because they stuck so bad people are not watching anymore.

If you had any brains at all you should dump their stock that you no doubt own.
