We can’t tell you how this tweet made our day. As Twitchy has reported, CNN has been building up to the launch of its paid subscription service CNN+, which would feature shows from luminaries such as Rex Chapman and Jemele Hill. Also on offer: a talk show hosted by Don Lemon and Jake Tapper’s book club.

We didn’t know the service had launched, but apparently, layoffs are already in the works:

Matt Dornic, CNN’s head of strategic communications, says CNN couldn’t be more thrilled with the launch:

“Subscribe today and get 50% off the standard monthly plan for the lifetime of your subscription.”

For what’s it’s worth, they’re only asking $2.99 a month after that 50 percent discount.
