Skip to comments.CNN Source: 'No One Wants to Come' Work Here (for a morning laugh)
Posted on 05/29/2014 5:12:43 AM PDT by cotton1706
CNN boss Jeff Zucker wants to revamp the struggling network, but nobody reportedly wants to work there.
A CNN source told the New York Post that the unstable network is having problems recruiting key talent to a place that was once known as "the most trusted name in news."
"We cant 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 cant 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."

Whoever made the decision to cover the missing Malaysia airliner story for a solid month should have been fired long ago. That was just stupid.
Couldn't have said it any better myself../NOT!!!
That's what happens when you promote a guy out of the mailroom to run a network...
CNN is a living example of the definition of insanity. Put on the same liberal crap over and over again and expect different results. No wonder no one wants to work there.
That is what CNN calls itself.
I think I may have discovered a big part of the problem.
Its the commie news network.Go figure.
They are seeking “talent?” Or are they seeking a transvestite or a lesbian porn queen or a bisexual father of five who can read from a TelePrompTer? Sorry. Those creatures all work for the White House these days. Maybe in two years, they will be available.
LOL - No, that's NOT it. It's the endless dem butt kissing and total lack of integrity...
LoL. That has to be the kiss of death. Titanic Deck Chair Shuffler. The Costello bimbo is especially stupid, she stands out in a crowd of idiots.
The most _rusted name in news..
Jeff Zucker, why not try something really really unique. That is to try to get some conservatives/ libertarians to be hosts. You might get some viewers.
What decent person would want to work for a propaganda network?
The 4th estate is a 5th column.
You only have to watch CNN for a short while to see they are not a news organization. They are a bought and paid for propaganda arm of the DNC.
Being a liberal station is a FABULOUS way to be successful.
VIRTUALLY ALL OF THE MEDIA FOR THE LAST 50 YEARS AT LEAST HAVE BEEN 100% LIBERAL 100% OF THE TIME. IT IS A FABULOUS BUSINESS MODEL, THAT BANKS ON THE UNIMAGINABLE IGNORANCE OF THE FILTHY, PIG-DOG AVERAGE AMERICAN. CNN just can’t make it work, but just about everybody else does.
I’m still unclear how one amasses a tremendous amount of lack of anything.
CNN -making mountains out of depressions in the ground...
The fifth paragraph proves he doesn’t care enough yet
Whatever could be the problem?
They must buy the large screen televisions or something for this captive audience. However, I notice even that audience is dwindling as more and more, people's eyes are glued to I-Phones, Laptops, Kindles and the like.
CNN is positively insufferable!
That is the thing.
I don’t believe we are really even wanting a conservative / libertarian place to watch.
CNN’s problem is it is LIBERAL. Flamingly so. That is the problem. I periodically tune in, and every single time I am once again chased away by their LIBERAL (very much so) biases.
That is a huge problem. I am not against watching CNN except every single time I try them out once again, I flee because they are just biased. Very badly.
It is a problem CNN. You don’t produce balance.
I want a picture of zucker with a big L on his forehead!
See here, comrades, you'll care about what we TELL you to care about!
It’s a little funny watching wolf blitzer still trying to blame everything on W.
Funny thing about humans, especially Americans, we tend to be bored or resentful when someone lies to our face. Odd that the folks at CNN are to obtuse to grasp such a simple concept.
Sounds like Zucker’s putting his foot down. It’s our fault we’re not interested in Global Warming/Climate Change lies.
This is, however, how libs think. Their motives are so pure and noble that they shouldn’t have any consequences from the masses at large, or from the restraints of “profit” or actually making any choices based on fiscal considerations.
That is why they seek power in the government, where, because of the legal use of deadly force, they can do their stupid, “noble” agenda with no consequences, because they can make others pay for those consequences.
Recently I've heard more reliable pro-American stories from Pravda.
...I wish I was kidding
CNN’s loss of status is directly related to their loss in credibility for so blatantly whoring themselves out as a PR machine for the left. The media organizations who uncritically repeat the patently false Obama line, and shout down any attempt to point out the truth, signed their own death warrants.
That said, Fox’s cozying up to the GOP establishment isn’t going to play well in the long run for them, either.
Bingo. I would quite literally rather stare at a blank wall than watch CNN. Of course at an airport there is an endless parade of people to watch. Who would bother with CNN’s drivel?
CNN can’t find anyone to work there?? Have they contacted any illegal immigrants? I thought that we need them to do the jobs that Americans won’t do. . .
Bingo....as they have openly declared that they’re goal is not to report the news but to “change the world”.
When they remember what their business is supposed to be about then maybe things might improve...so long as they’re trying to “force” a change in minds people will just switch off, it’s too transparent.
PBS is more desirable. At least they get some gov’t funding. CNN is a sinking ship with no legislated and guaranteed source of income. Yet.
Either their writers or most of their anchors operate at the level of a 14-year-old girl. The Saturday morning anchor, Lynn something, begins every third sentence, or more, with “So,”, for example, “So...the United States and Russia are in talks about Crimea”.
I had never heard people begin every reply or statement with “so...” until that twerp from the IRS bumbled his way through Congressional testimony last year, now I hear it all the time, and it has begun to drive me crazy.
I understand Ed Schultz has some free time on his hands. I bet Ed would love to help Jeff in his attempt to boost CNN’s ratings.
Zucker went on to elaborate just how bad his agency sucked, but did say; "Well at least we ain't MSNBC."(Well, if it ain't in the article, it should be.
This is CNN circling the drain. The pace of their swirl is increasing as their spin is getting tighter.
Your right, team him with Randi Rhodes. Big ratings to be had there Jeffy
“That said, Foxs cozying up to the GOP establishment isnt going to play well in the long run for them, either.”
More liberals watch Fox News than watch CNN and MSNBC combined. When Fox does news, it does news. No political leanings. That’s why it is the best news show out there.
When Fox does commentary, it pretty much telegraphs that it is leaning right. Even Shirley Smith, as left as he leans still balances it out. The evening commentary lineup is strong, not only because of the right leaning philosophy, but because there is no hostility or avarice towards people on the left, just the policies of the left.
People hate the groupthink and tearing down of individuals by the left. This is why they can never be successful. If you cannot put forth a truthful message that is civilized, you cannot be successful. Bottom line.
Absolutely! I believe Pravda way more than our media!
