CNN Boss Chris Licht’s Fatal Mistake: The Inmates Still Run the Asylum
Starting Friday with a 15,000-word tome by The Atlantic’s Tim Alberta, CNN boss Chris Licht’s legitimacy took on a deluge of water with one story after another seeking to end Licht’s tenure beset by a disastrous morning show, a lack of network cohesion, and sagging ratings.

NYT: The Little Mermaid Lacks Enough ‘Kink’ and Proper Reparations
The New York Times seemingly said the quiet part out loud last Thursday, May 25, when Hollywood critic Wesley Morris penned the piece “‘The Little Mermaid’ Review: The Renovations Are Only Skin Deep” in which he partially whined about there being a lack of sexual “kink” in the children’s movie. He also didn’t appreciate Disney’s latest attempt at “culturally reparative work” and the…
