CNN Cuts Wolf Blitzer From Daytime Slot

Published

on

A familiar face at CNN is having his airtime cut back this fall.

“It’s a big day, and really a big year for Brianna Keilar,” said an Adweek article. “CNN worldwide president Jeff Zucker announced today that Keilar, the CNN Senior Washington Correspondent, will anchor the network’s 1 p.m. ET hour beginning in the fall. She will take over for Wolf Blitzer, who will continue to anchor The Situation Room weekdays from 5-7 p.m. ET.”

Keilar, who is currently on maternity leave, often filled in for Blitzer on The Situation Room, and was the lead Hillary Clinton reporter for the known fake news network during the 2016 election. Previously, she was CNN’s Chief White House Correspondent during the Obama administration.

Today, Joy Behar, a co-host of daytime television’s “The View” clowned Blitzer by saying that she turns on CNN to help fall asleep.

According to Behar, she loves Blitzer, but describes him as “hypnotic” on television.

“I can watch CNN, or something really, really boring… or some real old movie like ‘Casablanca,’ which I keep on all the time, and I can conk out for 10, 15 minutes,” Behar said.

The shakeup comes amid sliding ratings for the former news giant, for which the network has been widely mocked.

“Congratulations [Fox News]: Fox has 15 of the top 20 shows with [Sean Hannity] and [Tucker Carlson] leading the pack at 1st and 2nd respectively,” Tweeted Eric Trump. “CNN has become totally irrelevant, down 19% from last year with only 1 show in the Top 25 (#24th).”

In May, it was reported that the lowest rated primetime show on Fox News, “Fox News at Night with  Shannon Bream” outperformed the highest rated primetime CNN show, “AC360.”

“Several shows in Fox’s morning and daytime lineups also outperformed “AC360,” including “America’s Newsroom,” “Fox & Friends,” “Outnumbered,” “Your World with Neil Cavuto,” “Happening Now,” “Shepard Smith Reporting,” “Outnumbered Overtime” and “Daily Briefing with Dana Perino,” wrote the Washington Times. 

CNN’s primetime viewership has declined 17% in the first quarter of this year, and not one of the network’s programs cracked the top 20 highest rated cable news shows among total viewers.

There are no immediate details regarding Keilar’s new show.

As Trump Leaves Office, Media Cites Ineffectiveness of Lockdowns and Democratic Leaders Display Eagerness to Reopen

Right on cue.

With President Donald Trump’s impending exit from the White House, many are starting to perceive pivots from Democratic leaders and the mainstream media on the ineffectiveness of lockdowns and the reopening of society.

For example, Newsweek ran an article Thursday titled “COVID Lockdowns May Have No Clear Benefit vs Other Voluntary Measures, International Study Shows.” The study, published in the European Journal of Clinical Investigation, found through a mathematical model that there was “no clear, significant beneficial effect of [more restrictive measures] on [COVID-19] case growth in any country.”

This is just one study, of course, so it may not reflect objective reality any more than one study which concludes that lockdowns saved “millions of lives.” But after getting bombarded with messages from the media that lockdowns were necessary—with the opposite message found only on explicitly conservative outlets like Big League Politics—it may seem too coincidental to see such a story while the changing of the presidential guard takes place.

Not only that, it also comes at a time when some Democratic leaders appear to be chomping at the bit to reopen restaurants, bars, and schools—after several months of harsh insistence that they all must stay closed in the name of “safety” and “public health.”

On Monday, for example, Governor Andrew Cuomo of New York called for the reopening of the state’s economy “smartly and safely.”

“We simply cannot stay closed until the vaccine hits critical mass. The cost is too high. We will have nothing left to open. We must reopen the economy, but we must do it smartly and safely,” Cuomo tweeted.

Mayor of Chicago Lori Lightfoot put out a similar call on Thursday, saying that bars and restaurants need to reopen “as quickly as possible” because it will help those businesses survive and reduce the number of large private parties and gatherings.

And incoming president Joe Biden recently pitched a $175 billion plan to return children to school, $130 billion of which would be for public elementary, middle, and high schools, the other $35 billion for colleges and universities. Many teachers unions stubbornly refused to return to in-person classes for the longest time, but now that Biden has come out in support of in-person classes, don’t be surprised to see them suddenly change their tune.

The left is so predictable, isn’t it?
