CNN has laid off more than 40 senior journalists in its newsgathering operation – including a pregnant producer who was two weeks away from giving birth to twins – as part of a reorganisation of the business under Jeff Zucker.

The cutting of production and editorial staff at the Time Warner-owned group comes as Mr Zucker tries to re-establish CNN as the dominant force in 24 hour cable news, a crown it lost several years ago to Fox News Channel.

First off...."journalists"? Really? At cnn? Not bloody likely. Second, thanks jeff. Third. At least they'll have no problem signing up for obiecare. Fourth. jeff wants to re-establish cnn as the "dominant" force in cable news? LOLOLOLOLOL! Good luck with that one jeff. I wonder if the unemployment numbers will "necessarily skyrocket" because of these massive lay-offs.

Look for the pregnant woman to become Super Victim #1. Journalists everywhere else fearing their own lay-off will start trumpeting her story from the rooftops.

“as Mr Zucker tries to re-establish CNN as the dominant force in 24 hour cable news”

Never happen. To do that they’de have to tell the truth. cnn’s connections to hitlery will never allow that.

“CNN has laid off more than 40 senior journalists”

Nobody who works at CNN is a journalist. They are paid liars who just repeat whatever party line they are told to repeat.

Maybe now they can find honest work doing something useful and constructive.

CNN had 40 journalists?

Where were they employed, and what have they been doing the past 30 years?

They had journalists on staff? What a waste. Fiction writers are so much better. And why pay journalists when they have federally paid writers sending them “news” right from the White House and in Congressional offices and the Pentagon???

How many journalists did they have to hire just so they could fire forty?

The only reason they have any semblance of viewership is due to the dam airports tuned in 24/7 to the crap station.
