New CNN Chief Claims the Left Are Attacking Him for Trying to Make Network Less Partisan

New CNN chief Chris Licht claims he is being attacked by leftists for trying to make the network less partisan.

Licht said he is receiving angry pushback from the left as the network tries to move away from its continuous Trump and conservative bashing.

News Busters reports:

CNN boss Chris Licht drew a big James Stewart profile on the front of the Sunday Business section of The New York Times. Licht’s public chatter about making CNN less partisan and screamy is drawing bad reviews from partisan and screamy leftists. This went unsaid: CNN hasn’t really changed at all.

A chorus of media pundits has pounced on every tidbit of bad news. Mr. Licht’s early programming efforts aimed at repositioning the network as broader and less partisan have prompted howls of criticism, with former MSNBC host and former colleague Keith Olbermann publicly calling Mr. Licht a “TV Fascist” after he moved Don Lemon, a liberal host, from a prime-time slot to a revamped morning show.

“The uninformed vitriol, especially from the left, has been stunning,” Mr. Licht said in one of several interviews with The New York Times spanning his nearly eight-month tenure.

“Which proves my point: so much of what passes for news is name-calling, half-truths and desperation.”

Earlier this year, The Daily Fetched reported that Chris Licht vowed to steer the network’s far-left, anti-Trump agenda to a less partisan tone, warning on-air personalities unable to adjust to the change would be fired.

“No one is safe or secure right now,” one CNN staffer told Deadline.

In September, former Fox News host Chris Wallace’s new show on CNN, “Who’s Talking to Chris Wallace,” totally bombed.

According to the Nielsen ratings, an underwhelming amount of viewers tuned in to the show.

As The Washington Examiner reported:

“The ratings show that there were 401,000 viewers, down 29% from the average, and 44,000 among those aged 25 to 54, down 64% from the average.”
