CNN’s soon to be new owner, billionaire media mogul and investor John Malone just made a startling but unsurprising admission, one that has been brutally apparent to many for quite some time now, that the so called news network has no actual journalists.

Instead of journalists Malone implies most of the current on-air talent at the “news” network are simply entertainers.

Liberal CNN needs “actual journalists,” billionaire media mogul John Malone told CNBC in an interview in which he explained there is a place for the news channel in the proposed $43 billion combination of WarnerMedia and Discovery into a new entity Warner Bros. Discovery.

“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,” said Malone, who is longtime chairman of Liberty Media, which is a major shareholder in Discovery and will be the controlling partner of the new media combination.

“I do believe good journalism could have a role in this future portfolio that Discovery-TimeWarner’s going to represent,” he said.

CNN will be the key news property in the merged company, one that will be dominated by entertainment programming. There had been rumors that CNN might be spun off or sold, but Malone indicated that’s not likely.

He described such a move as “a coward’s way out would be to sell [CNN] or spin it off and then sell it.”

But Malone has cause to worry about the left-wing network.

CNN’s ratings have collapsed over 50% in the past year and may be suffering from a credibility gap with viewers.

Looks like the soon to be new owners are about to make some changes that many like Brian Stelter, Chris Cuomo, Don Lemon and others at the CNN are not going to like at all.

Lets hope CNN returns to its roots and actually starts doing some honest reporting instead of the garbage and poorly done entertainment they currently push as factual news.

Of course the odds of a left-wing network changing it’s stripes and reporting the truth is in reality slim to none.

Billionaire media mogul and investor John Malone would be well advised to simply fire all of the on-air talent at the network and start over from scratch.
