Posted on 05/25/2019 8:43:53 AM PDT by E. Pluribus Unum
CNN laid off almost all of its health care coverage division Tuesday, in a move the network called a crazy rumor less than three weeks ago.
While Dr. Sanjay Gupta is expected to keep his job, most of the rest of the division, based out of Atlanta, were released.
Fox News reported:
TVNewser, a media watchdog site started by CNNs 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 CNNs Health Unit, a CNN spokesperson told TVNewsers A.J. Katz.
Many health department staffers met with human resources on Tuesday. Katz noted that correspondent Elizabeth Cohen is also safe.
Katz told Fox News that three divisionsCNN Health, CNN Climate, and the networks Atlanta-based Southeast Bureauwill be combined into one. (RELATED: CNN Wrote Over 20 Articles On Covington Catholic Students, Ignores Philly Muslim Children Chanting About Chopping Off Heads)
Employees are shocked, Fox News reported, because CNN Health is considered successful and the network had just firmly denied layoff rumors earlier this month. In fact, 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. Thats it. We have nearly 4,000 people at CNN
and around 100 of them exercised the option for a program that was offered. Thats it. Those are the facts.

What a shame. I’m sick of hearing that dope spout his we-know-better-than-you “tips on better living” on the radio every ten minutes - plus, since it’s from CNN, you know you can’t trust a single word of it.
The feel good story of the day.
This is misplaced; while CNN should do this with Wolfie Blitzer and the communist "news" [sic] division, they take out their bad ratings on probably their only division with any credibility.

TANK CNN, you dirty rotten propagandists! The whole lot of you need to tank, Woof Bitcher being one of the foremost in the CNN list of tanking Trump derangement syndrome offenders, who are so deluded as to call themselves “journalists.”.
Not hard to read between the lines.
CNN figures Healthcare is a done deal and no longer needs the Healthcare wing of the Propaganda Ministry.
They are probably correct.
All of those poor peoples jobs ....just so Don Lemon can afford another bikini wax.
When all you need to do is spew cr@p, you don't need a staff.
CNN probably would have saved more coin had they laid off Gupta rather than the employees in the division. But then Gupta is probably under contract and the others are simply employees.
Gosh, I WONDER if Rush will talk about this Monday morning.
Dr. Sanjay Gupta is a quack.
Dont start any crazy rumors. It gives them ideas.
Well, thats a first!
They should close down the entire company.
They did it all to themselves.
I have no idea where that crazy rumor came from, she said.It came from leaks dimwit.
Live by the sword, die by the sword.
Probably Tuesday. He may still be off on Monday (Memorial Day)
I'm pretty sure Husseincare covers that.
