House Cleaning: New CNN Head Says He’s About To Remove A ‘Cancer’ From The Network
CNN has been bought out by Discovery and the new head at the network, John Malone is about to clean house.
There have been reports that during a board meeting with Discovery’s largest shareholders CNN was a big concern and one CNN host is getting a lot of Malone’s attention. The new boss at CNN said that host Brian Stelter is a “cancer” and a “Zucker Henchman” that has “a failing show.”
SOURCE: At a recent (informal) Discovery Board meeting (largest shareholder) John Malone referred to CNN’s Brian Stelter as a “cancer” and a “Zucker Henchman” that has “a failing show” – (more to come)…

Stelter isn’t the only one that may be headed out the door. Let’s not forget Peter Doocy (who’s had some laptop issues of his own), Oliver Darcy (Stelter’s little buddy), and Don Lemon may be on the shortlist. It also makes sense why CNN White House correspondent Kaitlen Collins is starting to ask White Press Secretary Jen Psaki “tougher” questions during press briefings; she’s trying to save her job.
Let’s not fool ourselves into thinking that CNN is going to become a fair and balanced network but Malone claims he can’t stand the network as it is and wants to move it to the center.
Listen to John Malone.
His company just took over CNN.
He understands CNN became infested with liberal nonsense that nobody is watching anymore, and plans to move CNN back to the center
Within a year, expect most of CNN’s prime time anchors to get fired. https://t.co/KJov7gy3O3

The hit pieces coming after Malone have already started, the New Yorker wrote a piece in February 2022 attacking the new CNN head for respecting Rush Limbaugh.
The New Yorker wrote:
There are also concerns at CNN about Malone’s potential influence on the network’s editorial tone, which, during the Trump years, centered opinion in prime time more than it ever had. Some at the network have argued that the Trump Presidency and its assault on fact and the press necessitated that change in tone and emphasis. A few months ago, in another interview with CNBC, Malone said, “I would like to see CNN evolve back to the kind of journalism that it started with and actually have journalists—which would be unique and refreshing.” CNN’s chief media correspondent, Brian Stelter, interpreted the remark ominously, writing, “Malone’s comments stoked fears that Discovery might stifle CNN journalists and steer away from calling out indecency and injustice.” Malone once praised Rush Limbaugh for his willingness “to say politically incorrect things” and told Ken Auletta, in the 1994 New Yorker Profile, that he and his wife were “not socialistic.”
Isn’t it interesting that the New Yorker had to go all the way back to a 1994 quote to attack Malone? They are scared folks.
The world is collapsing around the left. Four months into 2022 Biden’s approval rating is around 38 percent, the left is losing Twitter after Elon took it over, the midterms look bleak, and now they are about to lose CNN.
There is a lesson here, Brian Stelter was a slimy “yes man” and nobody likes a “yes man.”
