(JustPatriots.com)- CNN’s obsession with Fox News is bleeding over into its upcoming subscription streaming service CNN+ which launches next month.
Last week, CNN+ announced that it will be premiering a documentary series about Fox News CEO and media tycoon Rupert Murdoch.
What would CNN do if Fox News didn’t exist? Brian Stelter and Oliver Darcy would be out of a job, and their streaming service would die on the vine before it even debuts.
The so-called documentary, “The Murdochs: Empire of Influence” is scheduled for release in the spring. It is based on an article in the New York Times Magazine by Jonathan Mahler and Jim Rutenberg titled, “How Rupert Murdoch’s Empire of Influence Remade the World.”
The 6-part streaming documentary will supposedly offer a “behind-the-scenes” look at the life of media mogul Murdoch and the ongoing battle among his children over who will inherit control of his media empire.
Fox’s streaming service should do a counter-documentary called “How Jeff Zucker drove CNN into the toilet.”
It’s hard to fathom who precisely would be eager to see this documentary. Other than Brian Stelter, whose entire existence consists of watching Fox News while anger-eating donuts, is there anybody outside of CNN who is clamoring for a six-part series on Rupert Murdoch?
CNN thought it landed quite a coup when it enticed Fox News host Chris Wallace to join their fledgling CNN+ streaming service.
But after Jeff Zucker was forced to retire, Wallace began to suffer a little buyer’s remorse.
According to sources, Wallace is having “daily meltdowns” over the departure of Zucker and his paramour Allison Gollust. The CNN+ streaming service was their “baby” and without them to steer the ship, Wallace is concerned that CNN+ will be a failure.
Reporter Jon Nicosia reported on Tuesday that it’s gotten so bad, Wallace is threatening to quit rather than go down with this sinking ship.
