Chris Cillizza was among several CNN employees fired on Thursday. He is a cheerleader for the Democrats and a CNN analyst that I have often mocked here at PJ Media.
Variety reported at first that Cillizza and Alison Kosik, Martin Savidge and Alex Field were among the cut.
CEO Chris Licht made the announcement in an internal memo. He stated that the changes would be a “gut punch to the network.”
Cillizza was fired because of his position in the network. However, given his tendency to make terrible political analysis, it is hard to believe that this was not the right decision.
Cillizza confirmed the firing via Twitter on Thursday afternoon.
