CNN’s ratings are falling hard and fast, and the news network is now gearing up to place the blame on Don Lemon – the biggest name on the network, Media Take Out has learned.
According to new reports online, Don, 56, is being described as “moody” ever since new network CEO Chris Licht dumped him from his 10 P.M. primetime gig to co-host CNN This Morning with Poppy Harlow and Kaitlan Collins — a move that most in the entertainment world saw as a demotion.
Radar online is reporting that an Insider is saying that Don, “has a colossal ego and he’s the kind of person who goes around saying he’s not going to take the fall for his show flopping, it’s not his fault and the network’s tanking, and they shouldn’t have pushed him out of his primetime slot.”
And there’s more. Radar is suggesting that Don has been terrorizing his two Caucasian co-hosts, Poppy and Kaitlin. According to them, “Don keeps ripping into 30-year-old co-host Collins off-camera.” They claim that Don allegedly “reduced her to tears” when she interrupted him during a show last December.”
This Radar online report is just the latest in a series of anti-Don Lemon reports that are circulating in the media. Clearly there is a concerted effort to trash Don in the media, and blame the entire CNN collapse on him.
