Joe Pompeo writes at Vanity Fair that CNN, led by its president Jeff Zucker, will soon lay off dozens of employees — mostly from “several high-profile digital initiatives” — after the left-wing news network failed to reach revenue targets.From Vanity Fair:[D]espite the so-called Trump Bump, CNN appears to be re-thinking at least some elements of its digital strategy. I’ve learned that CNN, a key property in AT&T’s planned takeover of CNN’s parent company, Time Warner, is targeting big savings on the digital side, with as many as 50 jobs around the globe scheduled to be eliminated this week, according to

Why didn’t CNN just claim that they exceeded all of their revenue targets? It has no problem with making up negative stories about Trump so why not create false positive stories about itself? Besides, the majority of CNN’s audience are rushing for planes at airports so they wouldn’t have time to tell the difference between fake good results and actual bad results.

Fifty fewer liars in the world, although they will carry their talents to whomever is stupid enough to hire them next. Who will shed the first tears, Anderson Cooper or Wolfie?

To #4´s point about being able to totally ignore CNN, unfortunately, they remain a default choice for many TVs in airports, gyms, waiting rooms, etc.

I would certainly cheer their demise and the professional career of Jeff Zucker, too.

No liberals, Obama or Clinton sycophants, were harmed in the layoffs.

But this will require CNN to change their usual 6 liberals to 1 conservative ratio to 8 to 1. And the 1 will be optional.

Just 50, CNN? Hopefully, the 50 includes your best con artists. Surprised your company even still exists. Hoping that you would go the way of Air America. But, I guess the useful idiots you have brainwashed into consuming your so-called news product are addicted to your lies and fake news.

Except for president trump´s Tweets and the occasional news about their absurd antics and lies they get caught in all the time, I would not have a clue about CNN. If they stopped what ever it is they do tomorrow, I would not have so much as a twitch in my life- Same with MSNBC, CBS, NBC, ABC and the NY Times.

For those who don´t know, Ana Navarro, just like Nicolle Wallace, are major Bushies. Ana even has McCain experience. The two women will NEVER forgive DJT for his humiliating take down of their dear Low Energy Jeb! and his $150M war chest AND those two women´s bright White House futures! So they are just not rational about ANYTHING Trump.

A Democratic candidate running in Pennsylvania´s upcoming special election is cautioning people that calling for more gun control in the wake of the recent shooting in Florida is not the answer to reducing the number of mass shootings in the United States. Democrat Conor Lamb insists that the best way to prevent mass shootings is to enforce the laws that already exist and not enact more gun control laws. The Washington Times reports: Mr. Lamb said more money needs to be invested in the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, and enforcing the background check system. He said he

Donald Trump is celebrating Presidents’ Day with a sale. His reelection campaign sent out emails over the weekend featuring 30 percent off on merchandise and including a link to the official website. “From the birth of the Father of our Country to Abraham Lincoln’s leadership that brought our divided nation back together, our country’s history is studded with many heroic leaders whom we are proud to honor this President’s Day,” the email said. The website includes an array of apparel and items, including “45” sweatshirts, “Build the Wall” T-shirts and “Make America Great Again” baseball caps — at discounted prices.

PARKLAND, Fla.- Students who escaped the deadly school shooting in Florida focused their anger Sunday at President Donald Trump, contending that his response to the attack has been needlessly divisive."You´re the president. You´re supposed to bring this nation together, not divide us," said David Hogg, a 17-year-old student at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in South Florida, speaking on NBC´s "Meet the Press.""How dare you," he added.Hogg was responding to Trump´s tweet Saturday that Democrats hadn´t passed any gun control measures during the brief time they controlled Congress with a supermajority in the Senate.

The couple who took in school massacre suspect Nikolas Cruz months before last week’s Florida shooting said they had a “monster living under our roof" but saw no warning signs the night before the bloodbath — despite the 19-year-old’s history of trouble in school, reports said. In an interview with the Sun-Sentinel on Saturday, James and Kimberly Snead said they never saw the violent side of Cruz, but recognized that the 19-year-old was depressed about his mother, who died in November. The couple had opened their home to Cruz, who was staying with a family friend, at their son’s request.

Pyeongchang - The moment, when it happened, felt routine to American slopestyle skier Gus Kenworthy, who along with figure skater Adam Rippon is the only openly gay male Winter Olympian to ever compete for the United States. Matthew Wilkas, Kenworthy’s boyfriend, gave Kenworthy a good-luck kiss before a qualifying run on Sunday in South Korea. “That was like a peck,” Wilkas, who wore a “USGay” t-shirt to the event, tells TIME afterwards from the bottom of the slopestyle course at the Phoenix Snow Park. “We should have made out in front of people.” Kenworthy didn’t know the TV cameras caught

San Salvador - Last week, President Trump torpedoed an immigration deal put forward by a bipartisan group of senators. The Senate responded by rejecting his own, harsher plan. By the end of the week, the immigration debate seemed deadlocked between the fate of the Dreamers and the fate of the wall. But one thing is clear: Any plan that purports to make America safer by making it harder for immigrants to obtain legal status and increasing deportations will actually do the opposite. These proposals, embraced by Mr. Trump, are the same decades-old policies that helped transform Mr. Trump’s archenemy, Mara Salvatrucha
