Big changes afoot at little-watched CBS News

Norah O'Donell at CBSCBS News is announcing big changes at the once-powerful network that fewer and fewer people are still watching.

Scott Whitlock of the Media Research Center says CBS News currently trails a distant third among the so-called “Big Three” competitors, which once dominated television news, and competed for viewers, before the age of cable.

CBS News has now moved “CBS This Morning” co-host Norah O’Donnell (pictured above) to the anchor chair at “CBS Evening News,” which means current anchor Jeff Glor has gotten the boot after a year and half.

Whitlock credits the relatively unknown Glor for being a more objective journalist than one would expect at a liberal network such as CBS News.

“He wasn't perfect by any means,” Whitlock says of the now-gone Glor, “but he actually made an effort to at least try and be fair.”

Glor’s well-known replacement is glaringly different, says the media analyst, which Whitlock suspects is an attempt to win anti-Trump viewers who share that view with the anti-Trump O’Donnell.   

“Issue after issue,” Whitlock says of O’Donnell, “she's hammering conservatives, praising liberals, or just kind of towing the Democratic talking points.”

CBS News appears to be preparing for a war footing for the 2020 election, he adds, to be part of the “resistance” against Trump and his re-election.
