Big League Politics: CNN Has Fired Most of Its London Correspondents, Then Invited Them to Reapply for Their Jobs

"Crazy rumor" which is completely untrue, said Jeff Zucker's Puffy Fluffer Brian "Tater" Stelter.

Earlier today, television and cable website Adweek reported that CNN International was expected to cut back the programming it produces and airs in London and replace at least 90 minutes of content per day with American content, and new details have surfaced indicating darker tidings for the once-respected outlet, as CNN will now lay off all its London based correspondents and allow them the opportunity to reapply to maintain some level of employment.

Say, remember when Ted Koppel told Tater that CNN needed Donald Trump (and, it should have been mentioned, the Russia Hoax), or else its ratings would crumble?

And remember when Jeff Zucker's Puffy Fluffer said that no one at CNN cared about ratings?

Well. Chalk another one up on Tater's Blackboard of Huge Victories.

Meanwhile, CNN is now paying freelancers only once every three months. I assume this is also a cost-cutting move.

The move has met with significant blowback.

"Net 90 is NOT a reasonable payment term for people who must pay rent every 30 days," Freelancers Union Executive Director Caitlin Pierce wrote on Thursday. "CNN is effectively asking freelancers to finance the cash flow of a multi-billion dollar company by waiting one quarter of a year for payment."

He means that CNN gets to earn interest on the cash it keeps for the 90 days, and the people it owes the money to don't get the benefit of it during those 90 says.
