CNN boss Jeff Zucker wants to revamp the struggling network, but nobody reportedly wants to work there.
“We can’t find talent who wants to come to CNN. No one wants to come because we scrap things after a year,” the source told the Post. “Every talent agency we contact can’t get us anyone… Even talent from larger local markets refuse to come here, because they are afraid.”
Daytime anchors Brooke Baldwin and Carol Costello will reportedly be moving from Atlanta to New York to be closer to Zucker while Don Lemon is angling for a primetime show, even though nearly every in-house talent the network has tried to force upon its primetime viewers has tanked.
CNN’s ratings have plummeted the more the network tries to conceal its liberal biases and masquerades as an “objective” station. That may even be changing, as Zucker recently admitted that even though the network’s own viewers are not interested in CNN’s climate change stories, he will try to find more creative ways to force them to care.
“Climate change is one of those stories that deserves more attention, that we all talk about, but we haven’t figured out how to engage the audience in that story in a meaningful way,” Zucker recently said at an awards dinner in New York. “When we do do those stories, there does tend to be a tremendous amount of lack of interest on the audience’s part.”
As Breitbart News has reported, “CNN and its hosts are facing the same criticism that Meet the Press and its host, David Gregory, are dealing with as Meet the Press‘s ratings have precipitously tanked since the show has acted a mouthpiece for those in the permanent political class like Republican Mike Murphy and Democrat Bob Shrum.”
