It’s been a rough year for CNN. After Jeff Zucker stepped down and Chris Licht stepped in, the network has lost some of its top-tier talent. “Top-tier” doesn’t say much about CNN’s “talent,” of course, with the “talent” including the likes Brian Stelter and John Harwood and Jeffrey Toobin.

We’d actually pay money to see Jim Acosta’s diary entry if he’s the one about to be sent packing.

Well, in any event, it sounds like we should have our answer in no more than a few days. So, until then:
