Sounds like failing CNN is getting a make over with new leadership coming in, I wonder if the fired clowns will start their own circus then. The plan is to go back to fact based news and not with the idiots pushing agendas of their own making. Now MSNBC will be the next to go we can hope real news would be a refreshing change for sure.

My guess many of the mouth pieces will be unemployable as they are so toxic and divisive nobody would have them.

We will see

Probably be more business as usual I'm afraid. Nothing will probably change. Probably trying to rebrand themselves before the defamation suits hit

I think you might be hoping for too much.

New shareholder claims to be taking it in a different direction keeping it the same would make no sense when your at the bottom you would think. With CNN at the bottom and Fox is at the top so doing the same at CNN would be a plan for failure you would think.

I would think it would depend on what letter the new owner has behind his name.

Factual news reporting is dead.

Most news outlets are owned by the left. Not much worth the time to watch any of it.

The solution I came up with to deal with the biased left news media is for those on the right to buy them, then clean house. It's a long game solution, but doable. NY Slimes was bought at bargain basement price by Mexican? Carlos Slim? Millions of small investors......buying publicly traded stocks.....then proxy the shareholder votes.

Do the same with CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC......and that includes the radio news outlets, which may be some of the worst offenders going.

Target one......and everyone go after it. Get control and flip it and move on to the next one.

News always was slanted to a point, we just didn't have another way of finding out like we do now.

An example is reporting that went on during the war years.

A Big Thanks to Donald Trump for exposing the Fake News and the Left for who they really are.

ATT espouses the same drivel as CNN on a daily basis. And it starts at the top.

Pretty sure Reagan and Rush were on this in the 80's.

They were on it,but Trump was the first president that punched back and called them out specifically at each and every turn.Reagan would call them out every now and then,then moved on.Trump threw hard rights and lefts every chance he got.To be fair to Trump,no president or his family ever had more nonsense thrown at him than he did.
Not long after Trump was sworn in the press was convinced he was mentally unfit for the job.Somehow something was leaked about him drinking 20+ diet cokes a day.CNN brought in their "exspurts"to explain how this could make you mentally unstable.They had 20+ coke cans lined up on their counter with news anchors and educated idiots weighing in on what this would do to your brain.I've watched politics for 40 years and never saw so much stupidity on display from so called educated elites.It was refreshing to see a president come out swinging,and never ever back down.

Anyone that has paid any attention to the news Knows it was left slanted even back in the 70's. It has just came more out into the light of day more. Walter Cronkite was far more left leaning then most think. Walter Cronkite symbolized liberal media bias progressive liberal

Trump being openly nasty to reporters, probably was not as effective as Reagan's methods. Reagan won re-election by 49 States to 1 State and a district.

Reagan didn't have near the hysterical type of coverage Trump had,which began the moment he was announced the winner.And it still hasn't stopped
