New reports indicate which partisan CNN star could be the first to go under the new regime. Brian Stelter, the host of “Reliable Sources” is reportedly on his way out.

According to reports from The Daily Wire:

In May, Chris Licht, who has supposedly emphasized less opinion-oriented reporting, became the new head of CNN. Last Sunday, “Reliable Sources” had its worst-rated episode since September 2019, reaching only 580,000 viewers, the smallest audience since September 15, 2019.

In a memo to employees, Licht wrote, “… too many people have lost trust in the news media. I think we can be a beacon in regaining that trust by being an organization that exemplifies the best characteristics of journalism: 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.”

In April, the daily version of “Reliable Sources” was dropped by CNN after they pulled the plug on CNN+.

Will you be counting down the days until Stelter joins the unemployment line? Who do you think CNN will target next?

Stelter isn’t the only one leaving CNN though, click next page to see who else is leaving.

  1. Could it be that CNN has decided to be a legitimate news organization instead of a tool of the Democrats?

  2. OMG finally, it might b happening. The few people that remain to watch is fruit cake will be disappointed. I’m tired of hereing his squeaky voice anywhere. Not to fret liberal watchers, he will pop up in a sewer media somewhere. Stay tuned to MSNBC, that’s where congregate.

  3. I could care less about what they do. Hire, fire, whatever. I would never watch such garbage.
    Content or the delivery boys/gals. All partisan hacks. The two that need to go are:
    Joyless Joy, everything racist, and…..
    The lemon boy. To me, those are the 2 major culprits of everything misinformation.

  4. It only works if they don’t replace one liar with another liar! Just like the Russian delusion they change the story and bring in new cheer leaders for a brand new jan 6 BS session that is another total lie! And in the end NOTHING CHANGES WITH THESE PARASITES!

  5. and GOOD RIDDANCE TOO,…. Stelter is the worst in many a decade,…. purely a political, communist, socialist HACK, and whack job ! Stelter needs to go back to his movie where he shoot R.Lee Ermy, and Stay there , as a reporter he is SHIT, as a talking head he is Average at worst and Lowly at best, “spin doctor” Stelter report to human resources immediately, you have a complaint

  6. CNN execs have it half right as usual. Believing that the people have lost their taste for good quality news or the style of news they falsely lay claim too puts them outside the credibility circle. What people want is simple, real news, facts and honest analysis. You can tell people that is what you are doing, but if you are not, Oops, it will catch up to you. If new CNN execs and their new minions don’t figure this out they will only be repeating the same sad cycle and they will suffer even more. Glad they are suffering now as their hateful broadcasting has no doubt sewn great divide in America and likely cost many lives. Just saying.

  7. Until CNN concentrates on reporting the NEWS rather then political propaganda, it will never be able to crawl out of the hole it dug for itself.


  9. “…while always being respectful of differing viewpoints.”
    Yeah. We’re stupid enough to buy that one…while all your editors, anchors, and “reporters are Liberal loons. Die, dogs.

  10. CNN going moderate unreal. But the new Boss wants it fair and balanced like Fox. Fox always has 2 sides and then they say we report you decide. Now that is fair and balanced.

  11. The show “Reliable Sources” should be shut down, for it reminds everyone that CNN’s reliable sources have always been anonymous, and that makes them not very reliable if they are afraid to put their names behind their words. Has anyone but myself ever noticed that CNN’s sources have mainly always stayed anonymous, that way the newsroom’s officials never have to answer for their crazy and mostly false opinions.

  12. Good riddance. But I don’t wish him evil. He will land on his head…I mean, his feet…No, more likely, his head…Too much weight there! WEIGHT – not substance…
