Yeah, they suddenly want a “reboot.” Whatever. How dare Dr. Drew speak disparagingly about the queen! Come on CNN, literally everyone knows what you’re doing. Be honest, for once in your lives.
Via Deadline Hollywood:
“Dr. Drew and his team have delivered more than five years of creative shows, and I want to thank them for their hard work and distinctive programming,” CNN EVP Ken Jautz said in a statement confirming Pinsky’s last telecast will be September 22.
The publication frames Dr. Drew’s departure as part of a larger HLN “reboot” to revamp its programming to more “straight news fare” and adds that Pinsky’s departure is “a no-brainer, given the show’s ratings.”
However, given CNN’s open and increasingly blatant in-the-tankness for Hillary Clinton — which we’ve reported on here, here and on too many other occasions to list here — one can’t help but notice the timing of Pinksy’s cancellation vis-a-vis his publicly expressed observations about Hillary’s health.
He didn’t stick to the script and is out of a job. Imagine that.
