Brian Stelter Has ‘Weeks’ Left at CNN, Employees Already Complaining about New Pro-Trump Boss John Malone

CNN anchor Brian Stelter is set to be axed in a matter of “weeks if not days” as the network’s new owners push to rid the cable news outlet of its far-left propaganda reputation.

Jon Nicosia, President of News Cycle Media, has been the first to report on numerous stories about the dysfunction at CNN.

Nicosia had the inside scoop leading up to the collapse of the Chris Wallace-led streaming service CNN Plus.

Now Nicosia says Brian Stelter has “weeks if not days” left at the network.

The news of Stelter’s downfall comes as another report from Mediaite claims CNN employees are already complaining about changes made by new management under the company’s new pro-Trump owner John Malone.

One staffer reportedly complained that “we didn’t have this problem until John Malone was sitting on the board of this company.”

Nicosia reported:

SOURCE: “Stelter is ‘down to weeks if not days’ left at CNN. They go on ‘He is everything that reminds the new owners of the Zucker era they desperately want to get past.

They continue: ‘Management is confident Stelter is the one sharing the internal pushback to fellow media reporters while simultaneously stirring discontent within the ranks’

Other CNN employees were complaining about changes made by Chris Licht and the new boss – billionaire Trump donor Malone.

“It seems to indicate where things are headed,” a CNN source told Mediaite about changes made from on high.

“We didn’t have this problem until John Malone was sitting on the board of this company.”

“It’s worrisome that we’re being told how to talk about one of the worst things that ever happened to American democracy.”

From Mediaite:

New CNN president Chris Licht discouraged staff from using “the big lie” to refer to former President Donald Trump’s false claims about the 2020 election, Mediaite has learned.

On a Tuesday conference call with management and show executive producers, Licht was asked for his thoughts on “the big lie,” and said he preferred that staff avoid the term.

He made clear this was a preference, not a mandate, but staffers have taken it as a clear directive from the new boss.

He encouraged producers to instead use the terms “Trump election lie” or “election lies” in banners and graphics.

According to a source, Licht argued that using “the big lie” makes the mistake of adopting branding used by the Democratic Party, thereby weakening the objectivity of the network.
