“Which proves my point: so much of what passes for news is name-calling, half-truths and desperation.”
Licht said he wants CNN to offer a “rational conversation about polarizing issues,” so viewers can “take what they’ve heard to the dinner table and have a discussion.”
He said: “I want CNN to be essential to society. If you’re essential then the revenue will follow.
“That’s a dream of mine.
“Maybe it won’t work.
“But I’d rather try to win this way.”
Since joining CNN, Licht shook up the network’s morning lineup by moving host Don Lemon, an outspoken critic of former President Trump, out of his primetime slot and into “CNN This Morning” with
On moving Don Lemon to the morning show with Kaitlyn Collins and Poppy Harlow he said:
“They obviously like each other.
“The chemistry is great. I love the collaboration.
“Every day, it evolves. It’s not like me giving orders. It’s so much fun.”
Looks like CNN is getting an enema!!https://t.co/iey4qwerqe
