Embattled anti-Trump cable news station CNN is facing yet another round of layoff’s according to a new report.
While the layoff’s are affecting mainly the “health team,” several pro-Trump pundits have also been given the boot.
Mediaite reported on the pro-Trump conservative voices who have been “silenced.”
“Most of us got squeezed out involuntarily,” former Georgia Congressman Jack Kingston told Mediaite of his CNN contributorship that was left to expire earlier this year. “I was there for 2 years and was certainly willing to continue. It was clear to me in the end that the Republicans they prefer are anti-Trump Republicans.”
“Who are the Republicans?” former analyst at CNN Stephen Moore said in a phone conversation with Mediaite, questioning the loyalties of those who remain as part of the dwindling line-up. “John Kasich? He hates Trump!”
A conservative economist, Moore recently pulled out of consideration for the Federal Reserve board after a fierce backlash met his nomination, and has been quite vocal as of late regarding his disdain for the time he spent at the cable news outlet.
“CNN is the hate Trump network,” Moore told Mediaite. “They just trash Trump every single hour of every single day. All they’ve talked about for two years is the Muller report and how bad does it make them look now that it proved nothing?”
A significant portion of CNN’s staff that covers health is being laid off, which comes just days after CNN denied rumors that mass layoffs were coming to the far-left network.
“Specific details were not yet known, but a source told Fox News that ‘basically the whole division’ will lose their jobs,” Fox New’s Brian Flood reported. “CNN did not respond to multiple requests for comment.”
Flood noted that TVNewser, a media reporting website founded by CNN propagandist Brian Stelter, magically got confirmation on Friday — right before the weekend when the news cycle usually dies — that CNN was, in fact, laying off a lot of its employees.
Dr. Sanjay Gupta and correspondent Elizabeth Cohen are reportedly not a part of the layoffs.
A CNN spokesperson told TVNewser: “As part of the normal course of business, our newsgathering team made a small restructure earlier this week that ultimately impacts 6-7 employees within CNN’s Health Unit.”
A prominent media figure, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, told The Daily Wire that CNN’s Health Unit was “one of the few departments that wasn’t focused on anti-Trump stuff.”
