The following article, Worse & Worse: CNN Is Now So Broke That They Won’t Pay Freelancers for Three Months, was first published on Flag And Cross.
Things keep getting worse and worse for far-left news outlet, CNN.
Maybe President Trump was on to something when he called them “fake news” from day one, huh?
Now, the network is in such poor shape that not only are they laying off an entire division but they can’t even afford to pay freelancers.
From Daily Caller:
CNN is reportedly set to impose a “net 90” payment term on freelance employees beginning in June, meaning the company’s freelancers will be paid just once every three months.
“In a blow to their financial stability, CNN sent a letter to several of the network’s freelancers this week, extending their payment terms to net 90 (payment 90 days after invoice). The change is to ‘be better aligned with our corporate requirements,’” a Twitter user named Marcus DiPaola said on Tuesday night.

CNN did not respond to a request for comment – multiple times.
That’s because bad things are going down for the far-left network that serves as the communications branch of the Democrat Party.
Unfortunately, employees are now facing the consequences.
From Fox News:
Sanjay Gupta is safe, but much of the rest of CNN’s Atlanta-based staff that covers health care found out Tuesday they are getting pink slips — only a few weeks after the network called mass layoffs a “crazy rumor.”
Specific details were not yet known, but a source told Fox News that “basically the whole division” will lose their jobs.
It was recently learned that Fox News’ Tucker Calrson single-handedly annihilated CNN’s entire prime time lineup combined, and the far-left news network isn’t exactly thrilled about it – as you’d imagine.
I am now open to the idea that Brian Stelter is trolling ALL of us. He literally said there hasn't been much news this week and that's why ratings are down. https://t.co/TvrqQHBQRy

After CNN learned of the news, they were not pleased.
Check out their childish tantrum:
Over the last month, Tucker Carlson’s commercial breaks have had only a smattering of ads from lesser-known brands. It might be a new normal for the Fox News host, who has endured ad boycott campaigns since he made racist remarks on immigrants in December.

This is what happens when CNN refuses to play it “fair and balanced.”
It would appear as though people have decided to change the channel.
Maybe for good?
