CNN Shines During a Weekend of Russia Coverage

From The Poynter Report With Tom Jones:

CNN is at a crossroads these days.

Former boss Chris Licht, brought in to lift a ship with sinking ratings, was recently fired for failing to do the one thing that was critical for him to do: reset and revitalize the network. But through a series of missteps and arrogant leadership, he left the network in much worse condition than he found it.

Licht’s attempt to drag CNN into becoming a more centrist network not only turned off its most dedicated viewers, but it offended a staff of good journalists who already were doing admirable work.
