Hollywood Star Tim Allen Sets CNN Straight: ‘Maybe a Re-Focus on Accuracy, Not BS’

Hollywood star Tim Allen has set CNN straight after the network’s new CEO complained about the state of the media in our country.

CNN CEO Chris Licht said during a recent interview that “so much of what passes for news is name-calling, half-truths, and desperation.”

Enter Tim Allen who said: “Hmmm…well said quote from the CNN new boss.

“Maybe a re-focus on accuracy not bs.”

Licht trashed uninformed liberals in the interview before saying his vision for the company is to make “CNN essential to society.”

If he follows Allen’s advice, however, he may get closer to his goal.

Licht said: “The uninformed vitriol, especially from the left, has been stunning,” Licht told the Times.

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

Licht said he wants CNN to offer a “rational conversation about polarizing issues,” so viewers can “take what they’ve heard to the dinner table and have a discussion.”

He said: “I want CNN to be essential to society. If you’re essential then the revenue will follow.

“That’s a dream of mine.

“Maybe it won’t work.

“But I’d rather try to win this way.”
