The cocky self-absorbed Chris Wallace left his cushy job at Fox and stomped on conservatives on the way out. But now he is tied to something that is going to humiliate him forever.
Wallace is now part of one of the biggest failures in the history of media. After throwing millions of dollars away, in one month CNN’s new streaming service is being shut down by its new owners Warner Bros. Discovery.
One CNN+ staffer described the sentiment as “total and utter shock” that morphed into despair. “At first people were really freaking out. And then, toward the end of the meeting, it just turned to sadness. Every team was just huddling with each other.” https://t.co/XgCn1yF7so
Employees at CNN were shocked because they were used to having poor standards and no accountability because the network was being used as Zucker’s personal political playground. After the news broke CNN+ was no more a Discovery board member put into perspective why they decided to shut down the network. The board member also hinted that some of the cable networks hosts are about to get axed as well.

Wallace recently gave an interview with CBS News claiming that he is a “victim.”
“Are there already enough choices for news sources out there and are the days of streaming already over?” CBS News correspondent Jacqueline Adams asked.
“Wow that was quick,” Wallace remarked. “It’s an interesting thing and I’ve been a victim of all of this in the last week.”
The guy has been throwing diva temper tantrums for weeks.
