I honestly believe Miller has little (if any) to no fault in Cartoon Network's direction as a channel right now. She's just doing her job and all that's there is shows kids watch (as the ratings show). And the people complaining about it all mostly are really bitter, petty people from the previous generations who should stop watching and avoid the network altogether (for their own sake).

I definitely agree however that Atreya should be removed from his post because IMO he is 100% responsible for CN's mistakes -- his scheduling decisions and the results are attrocoius.

 

Atreya is one of the worst hires CN has made. At least Stuart Snyder learned from the live-action fiasco that plagued the network.

 

For the record, Adult Swim exists for a reason.

Surprised nobody is talking about this. WarnerMedia is working to phase out the Turner name on its cable networks.

And there’s some speculation that CNN may leave Atlanta behind:

One thing that second article leaves out is that 1018 West Peachtree NW, where WTCG and later "Superstation" WTBS was headquartered, is about to meet the wrecking ball for some new development. Apparently Turner sold it to Comcast some time ago, and they gutted it after moving out.

 

Weren't there rumors a while back that CNN might move out of CNN Center and back to the Techwood campus, too?

I think that may have been scrapped when Time Warner sold off all their FCC licenses. Plus now they have a sister entity with DirecTV which could handle uplinking.

Oh Boy. Plepler gone. Levy gone. And now Tsujihara is gone because of a sex scandal.

 

Quote

Earlier this month, WarnerMedia launched an investigation following a Hollywood Reporter story that detailed text messages between Tsujihara and British actress Charlotte Kirk going back to 2013. The messages suggest a quid pro quo sexual relationship between the aspiring actress and the studio head in which he made promises that he’d introduce her to influential executives and she’d be considered for roles in movies and television.

 

Tsujihara, one of the last executives of the old Time Warner gaurd, was going to keep his post as CEO of Warner Bros, after parent WarnerMedia announced its restructing for the media conglomerate.

All of the Time Warner management is now history. Bewkes, Martin (Turner), Plepler (HBO) and now Tsujihara (Warner Bros.)

 

The phone company's in charge now.
