Oh the times they are a’changin’ over at CNN, the original cable “news” network that Americans hold largely to blame for the insanity of this new “infotainment industry”, and their attempts to conjure country-wide chaos for the sake of making ratings.
As more and more of us begin to awaken to the reality of this WWE-style, scripted political hacking, CNN has been forced to put on a serious face. New chief Chris Licht has suggested that the network would be reexamining its bias and its making some adjustments to it lineup.
One such move was transporting former prime time anchor Don Lemon to a kitschy, fluff-filled morning show with several other personalities.
The set of CNN This Morning has taken on a frosty air amid tensions between co-hosts Don Lemon and Kaitlan Collins.
The off-camera tensions spilled into public view this week thanks to a report from the New York Post alleging that the cast and crew of the recently launched morning show are “rattled” due to conflict stemming from a December 8 broadcast. The Post’s Alexandra Steigrad reports:
“Tensions on the set of “CNN This Morning” have recently boiled over, with Don Lemon allegedly “screaming” at co-host Kaitlan Collins off-camera during an ugly December incident that has left the cast and crew rattled ever since, The Post has learned. According to two sources with knowledge of the situation, the 56-year-old Lemon approached 30-year-old Collins following the show’s Thursday Dec. 8 broadcast — and unloaded on her in front of staffers as he accused her of “interrupting” him on air.”
Kaitlin Collins has previously apologized for her use of homophobic language online, forcing many viewers to wonder if this is contributing to her tension withe the openly-gay Lemon.
