Top CNN executive to leave network after new leader takes over

It's no secret at this point that, like so many establishment media outlets, CNN is failing and struggling to stay afloat.

The network might have a little extra hope under the reign of CEO Chris Licht, who seems to be attempting to steer the network back from going so far left, as that formula clearly isn't profitable.

The Daily Caller reported this week that Licht announced the departure of CNN's executive vice president of programming, Michael Bass. 

Not surprisingly, the outlet packaged the departure as if it wasn't part of the turmoil that has embroiled the network after former President Donald Trump left the White House, which alienated viewers who only tuned in for the negative coverage of his presidency.

"Throughout his nearly decade-long run at this organization Michael has demonstrated incredible leadership and perseverance. He has been a steady hand during some of the most turbulent times this network has faced," Licht's statement read.

"Michael kept CNN live and on air as COVID-19 shut the world down. Never has CNN been more essential than those bleak days when people were struggling to understanding the pandemic," Licht continued.

He added, "Michael helped create a number of new shows and overhaul legacy programs. His full list of accomplishments is too great to acknowledge in a single memo."

Licht's statement added that the network is already attempting to fill the vacant role.

Twitter users reacted to the statement.

Only time will tell if CNN manages to ever pull itself up and get back to doing real journalism again, but to give credit where credit is due, it appears as if the network's new CEO knows that they have to get away from the radical progressive narrative.
