CNN’s Host Fareed Zakaria Agrees With Trump About Asylum

(PatrioticPost.com)- During a recent episode of “The Megyn Kelly Show,” host Megyn Kelly revealed that when she was still at Fox News, CNN’s former boss Jeff Zucker had offered her a job at CNN and she turned him down.

Kelly and her guest Buck Sexton were discussing the pathetic debut of the already-dead CNN paid subscription service CNN+ and former Fox News host Chris Wallace’s decision to leave the top-rating cable news network for CNN’s streaming service.

Kelly told Sexton that, like Wallace, she too had been asked to jump ship from Fox News to work for CNN. She said CNN made her “a huge offer” and she considered it. But in the end, Kelly said no. She said she knew who her fans were and she knew that her Fox News viewers weren’t going to follow her to CNN. She also knew CNN viewers “were going to hate my guts.”

Kelly suggested that Chris Wallace found that out the hard way.

Instead, Megyn Kelly left Fox News for NBC News in 2017.

In the end, Chris Wallace’s decision to bail on Fox for CNN’s subscription service was probably the worse career move he could’ve made.

Last week, Discovery announced that CNN+ would be shutting down on April 30, just one month after the much-promoted subscription service was launched.

CNBC had previously reported that CNN+ was barely able to attract 10,000 daily viewers.

The company had already sunk $300 million into CNN+, which comes to about $10 million a day.

On her show, Kelly jokingly asked who was the moron at CNN who thought, “you know what we need with our ratings in the toilet? More of us. We need more CNN.”

Meanwhile, CNN’s Brian Stelter is still in denial about the failure of CNN+.

During his Friday show on the soon-to-be-dead subscription service, Stelter claimed that it is too early to know if CNN+ was a success or failure.

Really, Brian?

It got shut down after a month and only had about 10,000 viewers a day. YouTube channels get more viewers than that.

It’s safe to say CNN+ was a failure.
