Jared Kushner to Time Warner exec: Fire 20% of CNN’s staff

President Trump’s son-in-law and aide Jared Kushner told Time Warner executive Gary Ginsberg that CNN should fire 20% of its staff because they were so wrong in their analysis of the election and how it would turn out, people familiar with the matter tell the Wall Street Journal.

A spokesperson said Kushner didn’t intend the comment to be taken seriously, and was simply trying to make a point. Inside Time Warner, it wasn’t taken lightly, they report.

Ginsberg told him there was no scenario under which Time Warner would cut 20% of CNN’s staff, one of the people familiar with the matter said.

  1. I doubt America will every recover from this White House and the Republican Congress and legislatures across the country. Hitler was an improvement over this bunch of incompetents and misanthropes.

  2. I’m disappointed in Mr. Kushner.
    Clearly CNN needs to fire a lot more than a mere 20%.

  3. Kushner never should have got his job, nepotism !
