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.
WATCH: CNN’s Don Lemon Claims “Jesus, Admittedly, Was Not Perfect”
Christianity teaches that Christ lived a perfect life.
CNN pundit Don Lemon displayed a stark ignorance of the Christian religion when speaking with host Chris Cuomo in a Wednesday night segment, comparing Jesus Christ himself to the Founding Fathers of the United States. Lemon suggested that Christ was an “admittedly” imperfect historical figure.
“Jesus Christ — if that’s who you believe in, Jesus Christ — admittedly, was not perfect when he was here on this Earth,” Lemon said. “So, why are we deifying the founders of this country, many of whom owned slaves?”
Every major denomination of Christianity has always taught that Jesus Christ was born without sin and lived a perfect life on Earth. Lemon’s claim that Christ was “admittedly” not perfect is wholly unsourced by Scripture. The CNN host has identified as a Christian before, suggesting that Lemon is relatively unfamiliar with the basic teachings of his own religion. Cuomo, who also identifies as a Catholic, declined to correct Lemon on his erroneous understanding of the New Testament.
These are the people whom the corporate media would seek to elevate as your philosophical and intellectual betters- possessing such a vapid grasp of America and the world’s largest religion that they fundamentally misunderstand its basic teachings surrounding its essential figure.
Not to mention, that Lemon’s claim of fanatical veneration of the founding fathers on the part of traditional Americans is a pure strawman argument. Of course the founding fathers were imperfect men, as any mortal ever to live has been.
