CNN+ Staffers in “Total And Utter Shock” at Failure of Network

CNN+ staffers were in “total and utter shock” at the news their failed network was being shut down, with some reacting to the news by “freaking out,” it has been revealed.

Earlier this week it was announced Discovery would shut down the network just one month after its launch due to massively underwhelming subscriber numbers.

Last week, it was revealed that fewer than 10,000 people were watching CNN+ per day, despite the network luring Chris Wallace from Fox News and Kasie Hunt from NBC News.

Staffers’ reaction to the announcement the network would be shut down on April 30 sounded like they were being informed of a loved one’s death.

According to CNN’s Oliver Darcy, “One CNN+ staffer described the sentiment as “total and utter shock” that morphed into despair. “At first people were really freaking out. And then, toward the end of the meeting, it just turned to sadness. Every team was just huddling with each other.”

Others apparently turned to “whisky and wine” to drown their sorrows.

CNN+ content will now be moved to HBO Max and the newly combined Warner Brothers Discovery has to figure out how to fill a $55 billion corporate debt black hole.

Imagine thinking people would pay to watch CNN. Whose bright idea was that?

“We don’t need the sensible stuff. We need the hard-core” gun control.

In the wake of a mass shooting at a Texas elementary school in Uvalde, MSNBC wheeled on anti-gun fanatic Michael Moore who called for repealing the Second Amendment.

Moore asserted “We will not acknowledge that we are a violent people, to begin with. This country was birthed in violence with genocide of the native people at the barrel of a gun.”

He continued, “This country was built on the backs of slaves with a gun to their backs to build this country into the country that we got to have. We do not want to acknowledge or two original sins here that have a gun behind the ability behind our ability to become who we became.”

Moore then suggested “I think we need some really drastic action here,” before suggesting “a moratorium” on gun sales.

Then came the real kicker as he asked “Who will say on this network or on any other network in the next few days? It is time to repeal the Second Amendment”

“You cannot say that. Well, why not? Why not?” He continued, before using the argument that the founding fathers didn’t know what bullets were.

“I truly believe if Jefferson, Madison and Washington if they all knew that the bullet would be invented — some 50 years after our revolution, I don’t know if they would have written it that way,” Moore stated.

He added, “They didn’t even know what a bullet was. It didn’t exist until the 1830s. They had any idea that there would be this kind of carnage. You have to believe that the Founders of the country would not support it.”

Moore than admitted that he supports “all gun control legislation. Not sensible gun control legislation,” adding “We don’t need the sensible stuff. We need the hard-core stuff that is going to protect ourselves and our children.”

    Video: Carlson Slams “Unfit” Biden For “Bitterly Partisan” Call For Gun Control After Shooting

    “He moved immediately into some DNC rant of a cue card. That’s the president?”

    Conservative host Tucker Carlson tore into Joe Biden following a speech he made within hours of the shooting at Robbs Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, accusing the president of “desecrating the memory” of people who had only just been killed by using the incident to amplify “tired talking points of the Democratic Party.”

    An angry Biden claimed that the shooting could have been prevented had he been listened to when he called for a ban on ‘assault weapons’.

    “I am sick and tired of it. We have to act. And don’t tell me we can’t have an impact on this carnage,” Biden said before asserting that America has to “stand up to the gun lobby” and enact “common sense gun laws.”

    Commenting on Biden’s performance, Carlson described him has “Frail, confused, bitterly partisan, desecrating the lives of recently murdered children with tired talking points of the Democratic Party.”

    “Dividing the country in a moment of deep pain rather than uniting,” Carlson continued, adding “His voice rising, amplified only as he repeats the talking points he repeated for only 35 years in the United States Senate. Partisan politics being the only thing that animates him. Unfit for leadership of this country.”

    The host further noted “What a moment this would’ve been if he had stopped a sentence in and said ‘we’re gonna pray for these families and let’s let this marinate for a minute. Let’s stand respectfully before a tragedy.’ And Joe Biden has lived tragedy so he can say that with some credibility. He moved immediately into some DNC rant of a cue card. That’s the president?” 

    Watch:

    Of course, Biden is just the tip of the iceberg, a whole host of anti-Second Amendment actors again jumped to action within minutes of the horrific event to play politics.

    Michael Moore literally called for immediately scrapping the Second Amendment.

    Others saw an opportunity to use the tragedy for other political avenues:

    CNN brought out Homeland Security official Juliette Kayyem who spoke of “destroyed” “little bodies” of the 18 students so far killed in the attack, while calling for a suspension of immigration enforcement in the area, as well as anti-gun activist Fred Guttenberg who called Republicans “evil”:

    Cotton, Gabbard Warn That Government ‘Ministry Of Truth’ Is Only On Pause

    “Congress needs to act in the weeks ahead to ensure that it – and nothing like it – can ever be created again in the future”

    Following the news that the Department of Homeland Security disinformation governance board has been sidelined because of ‘mischaracterisation’, GOP Senator Tom Cotton and former Democratic presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard both warned that the scheme is only on hold because it was exposed, and it likely will return in stealth.

    Appearing on Fox News, Cotton said “I’m glad to know that this Orwellian Ministry of Truth is at least paused for the moment, but I think it’s important to realize that it’s only paused because the American people found out about it.”

    Cotton continued, “The government has no business refereeing disputes engaged in political campaigns or public debates. If you don’t like someone else’s speech, the solution is more speech. It’s not to use the Department of Homeland Security, for goodness’ sake, to try to censor or label someone’s arguments in the public sphere.”

    “Now, I think the Democrats often believe that disinformation and misinformation are simply facts that reflect poorly on Joe Biden and the Democrat Party,” Cotton further urged.

    “Congress needs to act in the weeks ahead to ensure that it – and nothing like it – can ever be created again in the future,” the Senator asserted.

    Watch:

    Gabbard also tweeted similar sentiments, noting “Freedom requires vigilance.”

    As we noted Thursday, the so called ‘Ministry of Truth’ could be dusted off and reactivated at any point, with reports suggesting that DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas has picked former DHS Secretary Michael Chertoff to replace the thoroughly compromised Nina Jankowicz and to lead a “thorough review” of the scheme.
