According to the Post Millennial:
In June, News Cycle Media's Jon Nicosia reported that Steleter was down to "weeks if not days" left at the network. "He is everything that reminds the new owners of the Zucker era they desperately want to get past," a source said. Nicosia claimed the info came from an anonymous source who also said "management is confident Stelter is the one sharing the internal pushback to fellow media reporters while simultaneously stirring discontent within the ranks."
Serious calls for Stelter's firing began in February of this year. Stelter was an ally to former CNN president Jeff Zucker, who had to resign after it was revealed he had been having a prolonged affair with a married co-worker.An anonymous source at CNN said at the time said, "he is allegedly our top media reporter, yet he failed to report on the scoop that everyone in the office knew. And if he wants to say he didn't know, he is truly terrible at his job."
Malone previously made headlines back in November when he praised Fox News and said that he wants to see CNN to do actual journalism with real journalists.
While Stelter's show aired on a network known for poor ratings, his were particularly dismal, drawing in fewer than 600,000 an episode during his worst-ever rate episode weeks ago.
