Daily Kos: The Foxification Of CNN: New Management Pushes The Network Into Crazy Territory http://www.dailykos.com/story/2011/10/16/1027161/-The-Foxification-Of-CNN:-New-Management-Pushes-The-Network-Into-Crazy-Territory?via=siderec

Now presiding over CNN, Jautz has brought his brash and distinctively commercial style to the network that once aspired to be a model of journalistic integrity. He is employing the same sensationalist philosophy at CNN that brought him success at HLN, along with a decidedly conservative bent. In an interview he gave after his promotion was announced Jautz delivered a tribute to Fox News and a preview of what to expect from his tenure saying that he does not believe that “facts-only” programming will work. True to his word he has endeavored to give CNN a shiny Fox-like hue and assembled a team that shares his aversion to facts.
