Remember how Chris Wallace made a rather big scene of leaving Fox News for the ostensibly greener pastures of CNN, specifically to his own show on CNN+?
After all, Wallace did not exactly switch networks quietly; he apparently felt compelled to give an interview that blasted Fox News while indirectly promoting CNN, arguably the most divisive network at all (perhaps rivaled only by MSNBC).
“I just no longer felt comfortable with the programming at Fox,” Wallace proclaimed to the New York Times, clearly feeling more than comfortable in his future at CNN.
However, Wallace may end up ruing the day he made this statement, given the rather humorous news that has recently emanated from CNN’s scandal-ridden corridors.
No, this time it’s not matters of yet another host leaving the network due to allegations of sexual assault or other ethical lapses, which appear to constitute the norm at the divisive news network.
However, those scandals certainly didn’t help bolster subscriptions for the CNN+ streaming service, which the network just announced would be closed down after barely getting off the ground.
Talk about an epic belly flop.
Humorously, as Wallace had left a highly esteemed job at Fox News in order to host his own show on CNN+, it’s quite amusing that he developed such a high-and-mighty stance towards Fox in the wake of the scandals at CNN.
Only for CNN+ to shut down within weeks, as ironically reported by Fox News.
Charles Gasparino, a Fox Business News reporter, recently reported the network’s improbable shut down of its digital streaming service within a grand total of just a few weeks: “Breaking: @CNNplus employees bracing for layoffs possibly as soon as May amid projections of lackluster sales of new streaming channel; CNN employees say new streaming channel could be merged into larger @discoveryplus as early as May unless subscriptions pick up 130 @FoxBusiness.”
Maybe, just maybe, Wallace is starting to realize that CNN is hardly the panacea that he is seeking, especially since the network has experienced a massive exodus of key executives in recent weeks.
He might also start to realize that CNN engages in a sea of its own disinformation.
“I’m fine with opinion: conservative opinion, liberal opinion,” Wallace declared, “But when people start to question the truth – Who won the 2020 election? Was Jan. 6 an insurrection? – I found that unsustainable.”
You know what else is unsustainable?
The “Defund Police” movement.
Heck, that movement was so unsustainable that Biden is now calling for providing more funds to the police, which is probably why the BLM “leader” in New York felt comfortable declaring that Democrats just want to enslave minorities through welfare during a recent appearance on Fox News.
Quite a few other things are also unsustainable, including the sea of unsavory allegations surrounding CNN executives, especially with regards to sexual misconduct.
But, by all means, Wallace apparently can’t handle a few questions being asked about rather strange occurrences, such as how a president who couldn’t get 50 people to turn out to his rallies somehow pulled 81 million votes.
Receiving 81 million votes was all the more remarkable considering that Biden blared he was running for the “Senate” while on the actual campaign trail.
Basically, when a few questions are asked, Wallace freaks out over possible “disinformation” and runs to … CNN?
Strange choice of networks to choose if Wallace is seeking something “sustainable.”
As it turns out, CNN itself is so “unsustainable” that its streaming service lasted a grand total of a few weeks.
Somehow, torpedoing an eighteen-year career at Fox News over a few weeks’ stint at CNN seems a bit more “unsustainable.”
