The hashtag #BoycottCNN is trending on Twitter as their previously loyal viewers complain that the network is turning into right-wing propaganda.
Yes, you read that correctly.
CNN, per some viewers, is now right-wing propaganda.
If I wanted to watch right-wing propaganda, I’d watch Fox. So for now, it’s ONLY @MSNBC for me.

We’re sorry this is happening to you, Jon.
But hey, CNN’s loss is MSNBC’s gain!
A former CNN staffer weighed in as well:
As an original staffer at CNN, I'm asking all of my former colleagues to express their serious concern with the new editorial direction the network is taking. It's horrifying to thing the #BoycottCNN folks have a point. Remember when Ted and Reese said "The News is the star"?

Horrifying seems like a rather strong word to describe the “new editorial direction” of a media outlet that still employs notorious conservative Jake Tapper, but then again, we stopped taking any of the major “news” networks seriously a long time ago, and we’re certainly not as emotionally invested in any of them as the #BoycottCNN folks seem to be.
Speaking of Tapper, he certainly caught his share of grief for … pushing the MAGA agenda?
Watching @jaketapper @donlemon and other’s who are pushing the maga agenda has become unbearable. They NEVER give President Biden credit for his accomplishments and lie about his poll numbers. They have NO shame, NO honor. They are out for ratings and that’s it. #BoycottCNN

We’re not sure which Jake Tapper and Don Lemon this tweeter has been watching but we’re pretty sure it’s not the same ones we’re familiar with.
#BoycottCNN as they are now an extension of Fox News. They are part of the Trump/GOP/PUTIN propaganda machine. A boycott is necessary to stop their fascist tactics. Join in on the boycott to help deny CNN ad revenue. https://t.co/imJbIJ9R8j

I started watching @CNN during the Iran hostage crisis. In recent years it’s become increasingly unwatchable to the point I would just as soon turn to Fox (and I NEVER watch Fox Noise). So sad to see a once great institution fall all the way to the gutter. #BoycottCNN

The peace sign is a nice touch.
Is it really necessary for the 10 viewers who tune in to #BoycottCNN?

There it is.
