Warner Bros. Discovery To Cancel CNN+

Warner Bros. Discovery is shutting down CNN+, two people familiar with the matter tell Variety. Discovery will address CNN staffers later today.

Bottom line: no one wanted to see more Jemele Hill, Rex Chapman, Brian Stelter and Don Lemon.

Most importantly, these CNN+ “talents” undermine the plans of incoming president Chris Licht to re-establish CNN’s reputation as a credible news agency. Insiders expect Licht to double down on reporting and pivot away from woke opinionists like Lemon.

CNN+, the biggest streaming failure of all time.
