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.
More than 40 College and Young Republican Groups Sign Letter Demanding Action on Big Tech Censorship from Senate GOP
Calling out Silicon Valley’s election interference.
Almost 50 youth conservative organizations, ranging from Young to College Republican Chapters and America First student groups, signed onto an open letter on Friday demanding action from Senate Republicans on Big Tech censorship and political authoritarianism.
The young conservatives and nationalists cited the recent suppression of the Hunter Biden email scandal, with platforms such as Twitter implementing an unprecedented level of political censorship to squelch a New York Post report detailing insider foreign business dealings and Joe Biden’s knowledge of them.
Read the letter in its entirely here.
In a statement provided to Big League Politics, College Republicans United at Arizona State University emphasized the need for conservatives to unite against the authoritarian alliance of the Democratic Party and Silicon Valley tech monopolies.
“Democrats use to be the loudest critics of ‘Corporate America’ trampling on the rights of average Americans. These days they are nothing more then corporate apologists who protect crony capitalism.”
Populist Senator Josh Hawley has taken point in the drive to hold Silicon Valley oligarchs to account for their censorship of the American people, but the anti-Big Tech movement has been hamstrung by malcontents within the Senate GOP caucus unwilling to do little more than whine about censorship, while actively undermining a policy solution.
