CNN Cutting Healthcare Division in New Round of Layoffs

The fake news kingpin is releasing most of its healthcare coverage team.

Published

CNN is set off to lay off its healthcare reporting team, according to reports from within the company that emerged Friday. The company had earlier claimed rumors regarding pending layoffs were inaccurate, a claim that now appears to be nothing but fake news.

100 CNN employees took voluntary buyouts two weeks ago, likely have been “volun-told” out the door in an attempt by management to save face.

Now, sources have confirmed to Fox News that basically the “entire [health] division will lose their jobs.” Sanjay Gupta, a doctor who heads the program, will remain, but those under him will be cut loose. It’s somewhat unclear why exactly the health coverage is being axed, as Gupta’s work is generally more informative, newsworthy, and non-political than the loaded liberal punditry regularly on display on CNN’s shows.

If anything, merely allowing Gupta to get on air more to talk about healthcare and wellness could represent a chance for the struggling channel to gain new viewers and maybe even create a shred of credibility. But it appears CNN’s management believes even more thousands of hours digging into discredited Russia conspiracy theories will be more interesting to those who still have a cable TV subscription.

The cable behemoth could be the next on the chopping block in a race to the bottom among mainstream news organizations to cut costs and eliminate jobs. Increasingly, the “reporting” done by entities such as CNN is rendered irrelevant by alternative news organizations, many of which offer a more succinct, honest, and objective perspective to readers and viewers seeking information.

Adding to an appearance of general chaos and mismanagement within the Georgia television network, CNN personality Brian Stelter said that he didn’t know what he was doing in a graduation speech.

Liberal Media Freaks Out as Tom Cotton Questions Coronavirus Origins

Mainstream media seems more concerned with Cotton’s questions than China’s censorship.

Published

on

Mainstream media entities are claiming Republican Senator Tom Cotton is trafficking in “conspiracy theories” for questioning the source of the coronavirus’ origins.

Cotton has questioned the official narrative stating that the deadly coronavirus outbreak originated in a wet food market in Wuhan, China. He’s suggested that it’s possible the disease originated in a Chinese government “superlab” a few miles away that conducts research in human infectious diseases.

Cotton has pointed out that the Chinese government is consistently declining offers of scientific and medical aid to combat the lethal epidemic, raising suspicions as to their transparency.

Such a suggestion is enough to label Cotton a “conspiracy theorist” in the eyes of outlets such as Slate and the New York Times. A headline from the Times called Cotton’s question a “fringe theory,” even though Cotton references epidemiologists who believe the virus didn’t originally enter human transmission at the food market. The Washington Post also ran a story Monday claiming that Cotton is trafficking in conspiracy theories.

It’s remarkable that nominally respectable media entities such as the New York Times are quick to dismiss entirely plausible theories of the coronavirus’s origins. If anything, an official narrative on the virus’s origins from the authoritarian communist government of China should be treated with inherent skepticism, especially considering that China is widely suspected of covering up the gravity of the situation and even arresting reporters who seek to document the epidemic and the government’s response.

Certainly it’s possible that the disease spread into humans from the consumption of animals such as bats, a prevailing theory for the virus’s origins. But the general public has no reason to entirely discount any plausible theory for the origins of the virus.
