Donald Trump celebrated this implosion at CNN that cost one big name their job
Since 2016, CNN has smeared Donald Trump on a daily basis.
But Donald Trump just declared victory over CNN.
And Donald Trump celebrated this implosion at CNN that cost one big name their job.
Disgraced former CNN President Jeff Zucker hired Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace to serve as the face of CNN+, the left-wing entertainment channel’s new streaming service.
Wallace’s hire was part of Zucker’s initial $300 million investment in CNN+ – spending that was planned to total $1 billion over the next four years.
CNN+ debuted on March 29.
But on April 21, new CNN CEO Chris Lichts pulled the plug on the platform, announcing it would cease operations at the end of the month.
“Today Warner Bros. Discovery and CNN are announcing that we have decided to cease operations at CNN+, effective April 30. I want to share my perspective with you before the news breaks,” Lichts wrote in a letter to employees announcing the end of CNN+.
Data showed fewer than 10,000 users logged on to CNN+ at any time, and it was easy to see how with new management coming aboard – Discovery won approval to merge with CNN’s parent company Warner Media – and clear the decks of the previous regime’s budget-busting fiasco.
Donald Trump cheered the demise of CNN+ as well as Chris Wallace’s show on the platform.
“Congratulations to CNN+ on their decision to immediately FOLD for a lack of ratings, or viewers in any way, shape, or form,” Trump wrote in a statement released . “It was like an empty desert out there despite spending hundreds of millions of dollars and the hiring of low-rated Chris Wallace, a man who tried so hard to be his father, Mike, but lacked the talent and whatever else is necessary to be a star. In any event, it’s just one more piece of CNN and Fake News that we don’t have to bother with anymore!”
In the 2020 election, Trump was at war with both CNN and Chris Wallace.
CNN lied about Trump every day for four years to try and defeat him in the election.
And Chris Wallace turned in the most biased moderating performance in history by essentially acting like Joe Biden’s tag team partner in the first debate.
It totally fits with Donald Trump’s political brand to mock CNN and Chris Wallace for the most stupendous failure in media history.
