As you may know, there is a purge going on at CNN, likely at the behest of MAGA plutocrat John Malone. The transformation is swift and jarring so a lot of people are like, “What the what?”
Well, if what happened to Russia as it transformed into an autocracy after Putin became president there, here is what might happen to not just CNN, but MSNBC should Trump or, say, DeSantis become POTUS in 2025.
Under the guise of transforming the poorly fairing Peacock streaming service, CNN’s parent company Warner Bros. Discovery merges with MSNBC parent company NBCUniversal. But, because we’re an autocracy now, either newly elected President DeSantis lulzes this mega merger and lets someone control two of the three major news channels — John Malone, or CNN is sold to some other MAGA oligarch.
Then all three major cable news networks would be purged of all their liberal voices and before you know it, there will be just a lot of OANNs, all parroting the party line, like their Sinclair Broadcasting.
Of course, if we have a civil war, then a mob of angry Blues might sack Fox News’ offices in New York City as the country falls apart. Oh well. Good luck.
