The days of CNN propaganda being force-fed to travelers in the nation’s airports will soon be coming to a merciful end.
The self-proclaimed “most-trusted name in news” has announced that it would be pulling the plug on the CNN Airport Network that has allowed the once legitimate cable network to feed its leftist garbage to a captive audience.
On Tuesday, CEO Jeff Zucker notified CNN employees via memo that due to a “steep decline” in travel due to the COVID outbreak that the broadcasts will no longer be transmitted in airports effective March 31st.
According to Zucker:
“The steep decline in airport traffic because of COVID-19, coupled with all the new ways that people are consuming content on their personal devices, has lessened the need for the CNN Airport Network”
What Zucker didn’t mention is that now that CNN has done its part to drag the corpse of Joe Biden across the finish line that its mission has been accomplished.
Via Variety, “CNN Grounds Its Long-Running Airport Network”:
CNN Airport, a long-running out-of-home media operation that became an integral part of the traveling experience for people flying through Chicago’s O’Hare, Dallas’ Love Field or even Fresno-Yosemite International Airport, is shutting down, the victim of shifts in consumer behavior that are moving more quickly than a Boeing 737.
CNN said the operation, which aired a mix of news from CNN and snippets from other WarnerMedia networks in 58 different airports in the U.S., would close as of March 31.
“The steep decline in airport traffic because of COVID-19, coupled with all of the new ways that people are consuming content on their personal devices, has lessened the need for the CNN Airport Network and we had to make the very difficult decision to end its operation,” the AT&T unit said in a statement.
This is the second CNN operation to be shuttered in the past five months. The company scuttled its Great Big Story video unit in September.
Launched initially in 1991 and billed as CNN’s Airport Network, the operation served as a way to keep the cable-news outlet in front of consumers even when they couldn’t watch traditional TV — and yet might be in a situation where keeping up with the news was critical.
While lessened air travel due to the pandemic is the stated reason for CNN’s decision, it is likely also at least partially attributable to the loss of credibility to millions for being the most hysterical, biased, and virulently anti-Trump network on television.
CNN has experienced a major decline in ratings since it shifted coverage away from lurid sex scandals, mysterious disappearances of airplanes, and missing teenage girls to wage a years-running jihad against President Trump.
Some have suggested that the only reason that CNN had much of an audience at all was due to its ability to propagandize stranded travelers and the loss of Trump to kick around could further shrink the audience.
It has been rumored that Zucker himself is preparing to jump ship although they remain unconfirmed as of this time.
