The smoking dud that was the Mueller report not only drove Democrats into total madness but has also affected the anti-Trump propaganda outlets that falsely portray themselves as legitimate news organizations.
For over two years, both CNN and MSNBC hyped the now thoroughly debunked hoax that President Trump colluded with the Kremlin to steal the election from Hillary and that the special counsel would deliver the goods that would lead to the reversal of that crucial election.
But Mueller and his partisan team of legal assassins did the exact opposite by clearing Trump of the collusion accusations and failing to find obstruction as well.
Once the immediate shock and horror had worn off and the howls of pain and anger died down, the entire left was left standing knee-deep in a hot mess of their own creation and nowhere was the impact more severe than at CNN which had devoted 24/7 coverage to conspiracy theories.
The drop in ratings was immediate as those other than their die-hard audience of haters and dead-enders realized that they had been lied to and tuned out. MSNBC and its $10 million, xenophobic conspiracy queen Rachel Maddow also took a major hit.
While MSNBC hasn’t had to resort to the humiliation of massive staff cuts, that isn’t the case at the self-proclaimed “most trusted name in news” where layoffs are in full swing.
Most recently? CNN gave an entire division their pink slips when it lopped off the health care unit this week.
‘TRUMP BROKE CNN’: Layoffs Continue To Rock Far-Left Network, Former Employees Trash Company

Via The Daily Wire:
A significant portion of CNN’s staff that covers health is being laid off, which comes just days after CNN denied rumors that mass layoffs were coming to the far-left network.
“Specific details were not yet known, but a source told Fox News that ‘basically the whole division’ will lose their jobs,” Fox New’s Brian Flood reported. “CNN did not respond to multiple requests for comment.”
Flood noted that TVNewser, a media reporting website founded by CNN propagandist Brian Stelter, magically got confirmation on Friday — right before the weekend when the news cycle usually dies — that CNN was, in fact, laying off a lot of its employees.
Dr. Sanjay Gupta and correspondent Elizabeth Cohen are reportedly not a part of the layoffs.
A CNN spokesperson told TVNewser: “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 CNN’s Health Unit.”
A prominent media figure, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, told The Daily Wire that CNN’s Health Unit was “one of the few departments that wasn’t focused on anti-Trump stuff.”
“Many health department staffers met with human resources on Tuesday,” Fox News added. “Staffers are shocked, as the health department is considered successful and CNN recently declared that no layoffs were imminent.”

The cuts reportedly don’t include celebrity doctor Sanjay Gupta who despite never having physically examined Trump, diagnosed him as having “evidence” of heart disease as well as being obese.
The network has aired multiple reports critical of the president’s diet including that he has two scoops of ice cream while everyone else gets one.
The layoffs come on the heels of the last downsizing when employees took “voluntary buyouts” in the immediate aftermath of the Mueller report and unless it somehow is able to exhume and reanimate the corpse of the vast Russian conspiracy, there may be more bloodletting on the way.
