CNN’s new CEO Chris Licht has promised to change the structure of the news giant, a move that is reportedly not welcomed amongst his colleagues at CNN.

As the Daily Mail reports:

“One CNN journalist told the Post: ‘People are freaked out. It almost feels like there’s a pattern. Is there a purge going on?

‘They seem to be sending a message: “Watch what you say. Watch what you do.'”

These spirited reactions come after Licht fired CNN’s woke ‘Reliable Sources’ host Brian Stelter. But to the attentive follower of CNN’s recent moves, that was no surprise. Licht is seen as an anti-woke force in the CNN management, and he is ruthless in his quest to change the structure of his company for the better. As the DC Enquirer reports:

“’I want to acknowledge that this is a time of significant change, and I know that many of you are unsettled,’” Licht said, according to the Hollywood Reporter. “‘There will be more changes, and you might not understand it or like it.'”

According to the Daily Mail, Licht sent a memo in May that addressed concerns of public distrust in the woke news outlet:

“He said the outlet needed to focus on ‘fearlessly speaking truth to power, challenging the status quo, questioning ‘group-think,’ and educating viewers and readers with straightforward facts and insightful commentary, while always being respectful of differing viewpoints.’ “

More recently, CNN fired wokester White House correspondent John Harwood, who hours before his departure said that Trump was a threat to our Democracy.

We applaud these recent moves. Of course, we know CNN will likely never be a bastion of truthful ideology — Licht is no MAGA Conservative. But America could use a moderate voice that is at least reasonable, rather than one moderate only in relation to the furthest left candidates of the Democrat Party.


We the people deserve a press worthy of our deepest admiration. We want them to report the facts — it is not their job to sermonize on Donald Trump while our nation is being destroyed by his successor. Perhaps Licht will produce just the change CNN needs.
