After a spectacularly failed run of only 23 days, the streaming service that launched because someone at CNN was convinced Americans wanted to hear more of the likes of Brian Stelter and Chris Wallace has come to an awkward end.
As The Federalist’s own Books Editor Mark Hemingway noted, you don’t have to be happy about ordinary workers losing their jobs to recognize that the higher-ups at CNN and in the rest of the corporate media have been working overtime to deserve the frustration people feel about their propaganda, and to call out the company’s ridiculous lack of self-awareness that led to the demise of CNN Plus. In that vein, here are some of the best reactions on Twitter today to CNN’s latest embarrassment.
Some pointed to CNN’s projections of a “long run of success” for the failed project as yet another example of the network’s lies.
Erin Perrine reminded us that Kim Kardashian’s marriage to Kris Humphries lasted longer than the doomed streaming service.
And Greg Price had a few more items to add to that list:
As Dave Rubin noted, it wouldn’t cost Elon Musk much money to buy out the failed platform.
Others pointed out that few viewers would be willing to pay for something that they hardly watched for free.
And we should all join The Federalist’s CEO Sean Davis in a moment of silence for Chris Wallace, who left Fox News to join the doomed CNN project.
