LOL: CNN Head Chris Licht Tells Anchors They Need to Start Pretending to Be Objective, Neutral Journalists, Or They May Be "Ousted"
WASHINGTON POST WORKERS ALL ORDERED TO TRANSMIT CORPORATE PROPAGANDA

This will last two weeks.

CNN's new boss, Chris Licht, is evaluating whether personalities and programming that grew polarizing during the Trump era can adapt to the network's new priority to be less partisan.

Why it matters: If talent cannot adjust to a less partisan tone and strategy, they could be ousted, three sources familiar with the matter tell Axios.

Details: Licht wants to give personalities that may appear polarizing a chance to prove they're willing to uphold the network's values so that they don't tarnish CNN's journalism brand.

For on-air talent, that includes engaging in respectful interviews that don't feel like PR stunts. For producers and bookers, that includes making programming decisions that are focused on nuance, not noise.

Between the lines: CNN's tone became more partisan and combative during the Trump era and under the leadership of former CNN president Jeff Zucker.

To conservative critics, some on-air personalities, like Jim Acosta and Brian Stelter, have become the face of the network's liberal shift.

Be smart: Licht doesn't want to necessarily shy away from personality programming, especially in prime time, but he wants to ensure that partisan voices don't dominate in a way that harms CNN, a source notes.

Licht also set up rules for when the "Breaking News" chyron could be put up, believing it's being abused just to "alarm" viewers unnecessarily and, left unsaid: drive ratings via clickbait panic.

"I would like to see CNN evolve back to the kind of journalism that it started with, and actually have journalists, which would be unique and refreshing," Malone told CNBC last year.

Yeah good luck with that. Is Don Lemon really going to be a journalist? Don't make me laugh.

Are Brian Stelter and Jim Acosta being set up as the scapegoats to be sacrificed to prove that CNN is now nonpartisan and credible?

Thanks to andycanuck.

Great Stuff via Black Orchid: The Washington Post has sent out a threatening email' which declares both that they will not abide sexism or racism (take that, Dave Weigel) and will also not abide attacking colleagues in person or online (possibly telling Jose Del Real he can't tell Felicia Somnez to take a chill pill, and maybe also warning Felicia Somnez that she had better stop riling up her Twitter Catlady Army or she'll be fired herself.).

So there's a lot of discord and anger at the Post.

So you know what the Post also did?

They told their employees to tweet out what a "collaborative," "collegial," and "fun" place it is to work at.

Jim Treacher has caught all the Corporate Insect-Persons re-transmitting the Hive Message.

Check it out before they begin deleting!!!

Do I have this wrong?

Is this in fact a protest against the Post? Forbidden against speaking out against Somnez and her scalp-hunting, have they turned to protesting by heaping sarcastic praise on the Post?
