Post-Election Bonfire of Schadenfreude: ‘Hundreds’ Being Laid Off at CNN

It’s a “mostly peaceful” end for the journalism careers of a lot of deadwood on the payroll of the third-place cable news network: CNN started to inform staffers of layoffs, as its chairman and CEO Chris Licht wrote that notices will go out on Wednesday and Thursday. “Today we will notify a limited number of […]

‘Mashed Tater’: Ace of Spades Frantically Seeks New Target of Fat Jokes as CNN Axes Unpopular Pudgy Bald Guy

Really, I could just throw a link to Ace of Spades on this story and be done with it, because what can be said about Brian Stelter that Ace has not already said? While I don’t think Ace coined the nickname “Tater” for Stelter, he certainly popularized it, and if you’re a Tater hater, AOSHQ […]

Historic Thoughts on ‘Our Democracy’

“It has been frequently remarked, that it seems to have been reserved to the people of this country, by their conduct and example, to decide the important question, whether societies of men are really capable or not, of establishing good government from reflection and choice, or whether they are forever destined to depend, for their […]

Report: CNN Planning to Cut Back on Carbohydrates, IYKWIMAITYD

Brace yourself for this shocking news: CNN’s Brian Stelter, who delights in parroting leftist and Democratic Party narratives on his show “Reliable Sources,” will be out of his job soon, according to a new report. . . . In May, Chris Licht, who has supposedly emphasized less opinion-oriented reporting, became the new head of CNN. […]

CNN+ Suddenly Becomes CNN-

It took barely three weeks for the CNN+ streaming service to get shut down by the last-place cable news network’s new ownership. Warner Bros Discovery CEO David Zaslav is known for running a tight ship — he’s all about the profits — and from the moment that CNN+ launched, it was obviously doomed. The report […]

Sweet Payday for Jeff Zucker

You remember when the malignant dwarf Jeff Zucker was forced out at CNN last month because he was shtupping the last-place network’s executive vice president and chief marketing officer Allison Gollust? And do you also remember when Gollust, whose main job qualification as a network executive was being Jeff Zucker’s girlfriend, later exited CNN blabbering […]

CNN and the Ukraine ‘Crisis’

Today, mainly out of curiosity but also perhaps revealing a deep-seated masochistic tendency, I switched my office TV to CNN, where today there were three main stories: (a) the walls are still closing in on Trump, (b) the sentencing of the cop who accidentally shot Daunte Wright in Minnesota, and (c) ZOMG THE CRISIS IN […]

Corporate PR Coochie-for-Hire Exits Praising CNN’s ‘Journalistic Integrity’

Totally stolen from Ace, this statement by adulteress Allison Gollust just boggles my mind at so many levels I don’t know where to start. Insofar as “journalistic integrity” is concerned, is Gollust completely unaware of why she and her boyfriend Jeff Zucker got shitcanned at CNN? Like, she somehow missed the fact that they were […]
