CBS Holds Pep Rally and/or Cult Ritual to Psych Up Presumably-Depressed News Staff

Corporate pep rallies. Everyone loves 'em.

There were unsettling scenes at CBS Wednesday when top talent and execs hosted a peculiar "pep rally" for the revamped "CBS Evening News" -- which left some staffers "embarrassed" and "confused."

We’re told that as part of the morale booster at CBS headquarters, incoming anchor Norah O’Donnell, heavyweight news division president Susan Zirinsky and "Evening News" executive producer Kim Godwin starred in a taped "music video" set to a DJ Khaled song -- complete with a dance routine.

Meanwhile, the alleged "news" organizations' Sunday partisan entertainments are in a steep ratings fall.

The "average audience for the network TV Sunday morning political talk shows on ABC, CBS, Fox and NBC ... declined 8% in 2018, to about 2.3 million average viewers," reports the Pew Research Center.

That's an eight percent decline in just two years, since 2016, meaning -- hold on to your hats -- a near double-digit decline during the Trump era, which this same media told us was a Boom Time for the media because Har-de-har, Mr. President, your hate only makes us stronger!

...

And it is just not network news. As Breitbart News reported last week, the overall American media will be hit with some 12,000 job cuts this year, the largest number since the Great Recession of 2009, and nearly three times as many as were cut in 2017.
