CNN Announces More Layoffs as Zucker Reveals Network is Losing $10 Million a Year
https://summit.news/2019/05/28/cnn-anno … ion-a-year
I've heard that other cable news is losing money also, but CNN is clearly being creamed.
Perhaps this is CNN's due for leading the trend towards fake news?
I am sure that is the case. People want the truth, and it is not in the news. Follow the money and see who is paying for advertisement. Who benefits from the fake news?
If the truth is not in the news - at all - where do you propose to find it? On a blog by someone sitting at their kitchen table in their PJs?
Possibly. About all we the people have is to read 50 such blogs (including network "news") and attempt to discern what the truth actually is.
Welcome back. The profit and ratings of CNN, Fox News and MSNBC matter only to people who don't read much.
Newspapers and network news follow standards that are foreign to entertainment channels like the three above.
When reading or watching the news, you need to be smart and notice the discrepancies. You can't blindly believe their articles and newscasts.
If CNN is losing money, why aren't the dems supplying it? It behooves them to keep CNN on the air telling their lies.
They are by buying products advertised on the network. The same as Faux News and other lying news services. I doubt seriously they'll go broke anytime soon.
Maybe if CNN was a bit more diverse. the ratings might just recover a bit? One can always be assured to hear the name Trump every .10 seconds 24/7. Guess many viewers just woke up to the fact one man could not have done all CNN reports or he would be in Jail.
I agree. CNN should add a new tagline:All Trump All the Time.
I keep CNN playing in the background all the time. Not because I believe them, but because if there is any Trump-related issue I will hear it there first. Then I can go off on my own search to see what it is all about.
I do much of the same... I have long realized CNN's stories have opened my eyes for the need for deep research. One must not always believe Trump quotes from CNN. It's just smart to check, did they just take one sentence and run with it? Conveniently leaving out all the sentences before and after the quote.
As much as I disagree with you on politics, I can't stand CNN anymore. It's all opinion pieces or news stories framed in opinion.
I think the problem is that we're all too stupid to accept a news network that just reports the news without slant.
It certainly seems that way. News has changed over the years. Instead of just reporting to the news using fact, names resources, they twist and turn the news until it comes out all wrapped up with a bow. And then they give the gift that just keeps giving. The unverified news spreads and becomes a fish story. Just get bigger as its told.
Fox News' isn't diverse, but it makes up for it by drawing all of the racist's viewership. Only 6% of their viewers are non-white. Duh!
6% I wonder where you obtained this info? 24/7 Trump Trump Trump... Almost could be called propaganda or brainwashing. I will say they are doing something right... They have kept a small portion of the public, even with all their fake news.
Again, it's easy to find. Fox News is the news channel for white people.

Kind of makes sense. If conservatives, on the whole, are tuning in to Fox, and if most conservatives are white......
Excellent point. That said, each cable news network has a strategy to appeal to certain demographics including race, age, religion and political affiliation.
It's one of the reasons why I don't watch Fox, CNN or MSNBC. They are entertainment channels pretending to be news channels.
I respectfully suggest that Fox will promote or demote certain stories according to race (the Squad) in part because that strategy appeals to white conservatives. In other words, it appeals to them in two ways.
That doesn't mean a white person who watches Fox is automatically racist. Nor is a black person who watches BET automatically a racist either. Racial preference is not always racism.
If you doubt it, then look for yourself, Shar. I posted a link on anther thread showing Faux News demographics. It's easy to find...
I tend to believe you, Randy. Although I think that is sad. Because CNN just pounds the race card constantly of as late. Not sure that is fair to people of color. I think that keeps pointing out a false narrative to make people of color feel lesser human beings. When in truth they have long fought to earn the respect they have always deserved. Sad to see the Dem's and media using this kind of ploy to get votes. But they always have done just that, play the race card. Actually, there is no longer a race card to play. Maybe the Dems should realize that.
"Actually, there is no longer a race card to play. "
Are you saying racism no longer exists? If that isn't what you mean, then what do you mean by that statement ?
This is exactly what I mean.
As I said CNN just pounds the race card constantly of as late. Not sure that is fair to people of color. I think that keeps pointing out a false narrative to make people of color feel lesser human beings. When in truth they have long fought to earn the respect they have always deserved. Sad to see the Dem's and media using this kind of ploy to get votes. But they always have done just that, play the race card. Actually, there is no longer a race card to play. Maybe the Dems should realize that.
And yes there is certainly racism, and this is just my opinion. I think great strides have been made in racism. I guess I am showing my age. But I can remember when people of color were badly discriminated against in every facet of their lives. I think many people of color would object to being put in any category or minority. No not all people of color would feel this way, as I said there is much work to do.
Are you saying ONLY CNN was disgusted by Trump's attacks on people of color, Shar? Seems there are other news sources who noticed his racist remarks as well. Probably not Fox though...their watchers would probably agree with Trump's lies and defend them.
I do believe if Trump stopped making attacks on certain people of color, CNN and the other networks wouldn't have any ammo to accuse him of being racist. Make sense?
I see your point. I think he should tone down how he speaks to any minorities. He could make his point if he looked at them differently, considering the fact that racism does exist. I am not sure he takes that into consideration what so ever?
He knows his base loves it when he insults people of color, Shar. Are you one of his base?
I don't consider myself one of Trump's base. I decide in the last election I would vote strictly on agenda. I had become tired of the typical politician, and just felt it was time to send a disrupture to Washington. Someone I felt would be transparent.
And did you get your wish? As far as being transparent?
Oh yeah... A little too transparent. I enjoy seeing him point out all the problems that have been around for many decades and see him work on them. Yeah, I would say I got what I thought I would get. He has outed all the ugly I knew was hiding in our Government.
He's also outed a lot of his own cabinet picks, Shar. "We only choose the best people." Who said that, Shar?
And is he "transparent" with his taxes? Do we know if he's in Putie's pocket or not? Or Saudi Arabia where he protects the prince from being accused of murdering an American resident? Clear as a bell? Yes?
He certainly said that. With every appointment, he goes overboard with flattering comments. But one can see if he does not like their performance, he gets rid of them. he wants to have people that get things done, not just talk about getting things done.
So, you're agreeing he doesn't choose the best people then? Scandals have caused Trump to get rid of many of his choices to save more embarrassment to him. Gotta look out for #1, ya know!
As I said, when they don't do the job he expected them to do, he lets them go.
Can't agree with that. I think when he realizes a person is not helping him with his agenda, he cans them.
Surprise, surprise. A very base response......I mean very. What did you have against Coates?
As I said when Trump feels anyone in his cabinet is not helping him proceed with his promised agenda, he does get rid of them. Coats has bucked Trump's agenda for some time.

You need not continue referring to me as part of Trump's base. After listening to the two debate, and making an attempt to have an open mind, I am clearly now am part of Trump's base. His agenda once again is appealing, and his job performance is good.
I'll continue to refer to you as one of Trump's base, Shar. You're very representative...
"Making an attempt to have an open mind", and having an open mind are two different things.
How did you like the two debate? I guess I could assume you are in Warren's base? LOL Just want all that free stuff. Don't hold your breath.
In the long run, it is not free. Take a look at the socialistic countries.
Very aware that many Dem candidates are making outlandish promises. There is no way any of heir pipe dreams could be paid for. Don't worry, they know that... You must realize the Dems have been politicking with the dead in the water promises for a very long time. "And we're going to give you 40 acres and a mule)...
You said a mouth full. Just look at any socialist country. Not pretty sights.
The Dem's time has come and gone. I just never realized they would not recognize that they actually add gas to their own fire.
Right, they promised Mexico would pay for the wall....
Oh, that's such a small lie compared to And we are going to give you all free healthcare... Or free college or let's see. how about $ 1000,00 to every citizen. Oh forgot they are also going to open the borders so the whole world can enjoy all this free stuff... Could your bunch sound more ridiculous? yeah, I am so sure they will. And just think your whoever's base.LOL
Assuming again, Shar? I'm for anyone who can rid us of the cretin and do not care about the "free stuff" as you put it. Do you also assume all on the left need free stuff? If so, you're assuming up the wrong tree...
And where is the money given to the farmers because they lost their soybean markets coming from? Is that considered "free stuff" as well?
I'd like your input on this if you dare, Shar...
I will take your word you are not one that's looking for free stuff. Just was pointing out the many of the candidates are running on giving lots of free stuff. My comment was out of line... Sorry
In regards to the farmers, I will admit I have not followed up on the cash they are supposed to be receiving. But I would consider it a different matter helping out farmers while the government clearly is causing them to lose their livelihoods. Free college, free health insurance is a much different matter these are things the government has no place paying for. The government caused no hardship with respect to paying for college or health insurance. Americans have been paying for both forever... and have no business getting into either. That's just my take, how I prefer it. I am very sure you have a different view. I have no problem with my tax dollar going to keep our farming industry afloat for as long as these trade wars go on.
I don't have a problem with the farmers getting the money, but I feel the same about people who cannot afford health care and working several jobs to try to pay for it. Unless we invest in our citizens we are backing up instead of going forward.
Trump caused the farmer's problems and the farmers aren't guaranteed to ever get the soybean market back because Chin went elsewhere to buy soybeans.
Of course, I'm simply speaking from an ex-farmer's viewpoint and you may be of a different opinion as usual.
rand let me save you some "ink" in further comments. I have made my support for "Trump agenda as well as his job performance" far clear. If it comforts you to label me part of his base, so be it... I m not sure your opinion of my state of mind is important? I think my comments give my opinions sufficiently. Not sure if you notice, I make no assumptions of others open-mindedness here on HP forum. I think one must get to know a person well before making such assumptions. It's hard to get to know a person with so many barriers in the way.
He knows how to run a successful business, so it makes sense he'd fire them if they don't produce.
Are you discounting all of his bankruptcies, Kenna? Why did he have to go to other countries to borrow money if he was so successful? You do realize no American banks would loan him money because he was such a risk when you made that statement?
And what idiot goes bankrupt operating a casino, Kenna? One guess...
I do think you are right in regards to him using his innate business sense to hire and fire.
He backs them up, thinking they will produce, but they don't, and he has to let them go.
I can tell you honestly I am not a racist. I don't a frequent fox or any given network. I have begun to skip around.
It's sad when racism comes in play. It just a distraction, which it should not be. Human rights is an important issue. Thus, Trump's base will continue to grow.
Yes, a racist President is good reason to feel sad.
A President who repeatedly gets worldwide condemnation for racist comments will have a tough time growing his base. Unless it's a racist base.
Then why are you supporting a racist, Kenna? Are you agreeing his racist dialogue helps keep his base growing?
Randy, Are you saying you are against Human Rights?
No, I'm saying I'm against racism. Unless you believe it's a human right to be racist, do you?
You said you believe in human rights, but are you familiar with the Universal Declaration of Human Rights? It appears you are not familiar with them since you asked that question.
Of course I'm familiar with it, Kenna. The 1st article covers quite a few of the others, would you agree? Sort of like we don't need all 10 Commandments as some are redundant.
"When human rights are not well known by people, abuses such as discrimination, intolerance, injustice, oppression and slavery can arise."
Seems like it's entirely white people saying that racism is no big deal.
I'm white, so that blows your speculation, crank. Born and bred amongst racists, but I managed to escape with my morality somehow.
Sharlee, he weeded out a lot of corruption, and he is not stopping anytime soon.
Happy to report the international programming on CNN does not mention Trump all the time. We get to see the news from all around the world, presented by award-winning journalists ... some of whom were my peers and I know them to be responsible journalists.
CNN has journos on the ground wherever the news is breaking around the world and is a respected news source for that reason.
Have you not had extensive coverage of the riots in Hong Kong in recent weeks?
I think anyone that can prove they are working and can't afford health insurance should be provided for. However, those that like private insurance and want to pay for it should have that right. I love my insurance and like the fact I choose my coverage. I respect our farmers, as I said. I respected our Auto industry and supported the loans. I very much approve of keeping all our industries solvent.
How about requiring employers to pay for insurance for anyone working 40 yours per week or more? The public is still paying the cost, but through product prices rather than taxes that way - if you don't buy the product you don't pay.
Of course, that leaves the problem of employers refusing to hire full time employees...
Shar, I agree, but he will leave a snarky comment because that is who he is.
