CNN Lays Off an Entire Divison as Ratings Plummet

CNN laid off almost an entire divison of health coverage expect Dr Sanjay Gupta on Friday as the ratings Plummet after the Mueller Report.

Fox News reported:

TVNewser, a media watchdog site started by CNN’s Brian Stelter, managed to get confirmation from the network — just in time for a Friday news dump.

“As part of the normal course of business, our newsgathering team made a small restructure earlier this week that ultimately impacts 6-7 employees within CNN’s Health Unit,” a CNN spokesperson told TVNewser’s A.J. Katz.

Many health department staffers met with human resources on Tuesday. Katz noted that correspondent Elizabeth Cohen is also safe.
We have been reporting about the mass layoffs that is going to happen in CNN for last few days but the CNN denied it.Executive vice president Allison Gollust told Fox News on May 7 that there were “no mass layoffs” in the works.

“I have no idea where that crazy rumor came from,” she said. “We have recently offered a voluntary buyout option for employees, and just over 100 people voluntarily decided to take it. That’s it. We have nearly 4,000 people at CNN … and around 100 of them exercised the option for a program that was offered. That’s it. Those are the facts.”

CNN health is considered as one of the most successful division in CNN ,but they decided to layoff them as they can't layoff the top prime time tv show hosts of the CNN.  CNN health was one of the only division that wasn't focused on anti-trump stuff.
