CNN STUNNER – top star makes shocking public confession

CNN underwent a massive shake up.

New leadership at the network is trying to change the perception of the network.

But now this top CNN star made a shocking public confession.

CNN’s Don Lemon appeared on Stephen Colbert’s late night left-wing group therapy show recently, only to have Colbert press Lemon about Colbert’s former producer, Chris Licht, climbing the ranks and now taking over as CNN’s new CEO.

Colbert wanted to know if the rumors were true that Licht had been given a mandate in the wake of Warner Media and Discovery, Inc.’s merger to restore CNN’s credibility by abandoning left-wing propaganda in favor of actual, real news.

But Lemon falsely claimed CNN was never a left-wing outlet in the first place, and that the new CEO’s goal was to have “sensible Republicans” – ie. RINOs who hate former President Donald Trump – feel comfortable appearing on CNN.

“Well, listen, I think that, I think what Chris is saying is that he wants Republicans, sensible Republicans,” Lemon claimed. “He wants us to hold people to account, but he wants people to come on and feel comfortable with coming on and talking on CNN and appearing on CNN. So if you invite someone in your house, you want to make them comfortable.”

“But also, by the nature of what we do, we have to hold people to account,” he continued. “And so that doesn’t necessarily mean that we’re going liberal or conservative or whatever. It just means that we are doing what we do. And that’s good journalism.”

Lemon added that CNN’s past tyraids in which they slandered the 74 million Americans who voted for Trump as supposed “threats to democracy,” “racist,” “fascist,” and all sorts of other derogatory terms designed to discredit Republicans, was not partisan advocacy but rather an act of “journalism.”

“I think sometimes one must be confrontational,” Lemon explained. “Look, I don’t think that a conversation on television should be any different than a conversation in person. Listen, I have, I have confrontational conversations with people I love and I have uncomfortable conversations with people I love. And I think it’s necessary.”

“And I think it’s also necessary to do that on television, on CNN,” he added. “And then – but you can do that without being vitriolic. I think not being vitriolic is maybe a better way of putting it. But you can do that and not have vitriol. And as people say, you can disagree. You can disagree without being disagreeable. And so I think that that’s what our mission is.”

Nothing Lemon said was remotely true, and anyone who’s caught more than a minute of CNN programming over the past six years knows it.

From the moment Donald Trump won the 2016 election, CNN made it clear that the network’s only goal was removing him from office.

CNN elevated “resistance” activists, like self-proclaimed “journalists” Jim Acosta, Daniel Dale, and Briana Keilar, to prominent roles due to their ability to churn out anti-Trump content.

But that strategy proved disastrous as CNN’s ratings cratered after Trump left office, leaving CNN in a position in which the network would go entire months without a single one of their primetime shows averaging at least one million viewers.

CNN may be trying to execute a course correction to alter the perception of the network as their anti-Trump crusade turned out to be a financial and ratings flop.
