Damning Audio Recording Reveals Internal Meltdown at CNN After Trump’s Town Hall – Report

If there was ever a sign that the establishment media landscape is in a state of complete and total upheaval, this is it.CNN, not exactly a ratings powerhouse, is apparently a house divided after the network opted to air former President Donald Trump’s first town hall on Wednesday.

Despite all of the tangibly positive benefits of hosting Trump for his inaugural town hall, like a massive bump in ratings and social media cachet (though, CNN may not love that last one), audio recordings obtained by the New York Post paint a picture of a news network in utter disarray.

“You do not have to like the former president’s answers, but you can’t say that we didn’t get them,” CNN CEO Chris Licht told agitated employees, according to audio acquired by the Post.

Licht added that CNN “[m]ade a lot of news” and stressed “that is our job.”
