A significant portion of CNN’s staff that covers health is being laid off, which comes just days after CNN denied rumors that mass layoffs were coming to the far-left network.

“Specific details were not yet known, but a source told Fox News that ‘basically the whole division’ will lose their jobs,” Fox New’s Brian Flood reported. “CNN did not respond to multiple requests for comment.”

Flood noted that TVNewser, a media reporting website founded by CNN propagandist Brian Stelter, magically got confirmation on Friday — right before the weekend when the news cycle usually dies — that CNN was, in fact, laying off a lot of its employees.

Dr. Sanjay Gupta and correspondent Elizabeth Cohen are reportedly not a part of the layoffs.

A CNN spokesperson told TVNewser: “As part of the normal course of business, our newsgathering team made a small restructure earlier this week that ultimately impacts 6-7 employees within CNN’s Health Unit.”

A prominent media figure, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, told The Daily Wire that CNN’s Health Unit was “one of the few departments that wasn’t focused on anti-Trump stuff.”

“Many health department staffers met with human resources on Tuesday,” Fox News added. “Staffers are shocked, as the health department is considered successful and CNN recently declared that no layoffs were imminent.”

Earlier this month, 100 seasoned CNN employees took “voluntary buyouts” after the massive layoffs rumors began to surface, causing embarrassment for the network that consistently ranks dead last in cable news ratings.

News of CNN’s increasing decline in the media industry comes as Mediaite released a report late on Friday about a number of former CNN employees that said that network openly hates conservatives. Mediaite reported:

The Turner news giant fired Trump backer Jeffrey Lord over a tweet joking about Nazis and removed Ed Martin following comments he made on his radio talk show that fellow CNN panelists he appeared with were “black racists.” Earlier this year onetime lieutenant governor of South Carolina Andre Bauer did not have his contributor contract renewed. Paris Dennard resigned from the network after the Washington Post uncovered he was fired from a previous job for alleged “masturbatory gestures.”

Add to this pile the dramatic resignations and departures of ex-Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski and former administration official Marc Shortfrom the cable news outlet, and CNN’s brand as a middle-of-the-road news destination with balanced perspectives becomes increasingly hard to justify. The most high profile pro-Trump voices don’t stay put.

Former Georgia Congressman and CNN contributor Jack Kingston told Mediaite: “Most of us got squeezed out involuntarily. I was there for 2 years and was certainly willing to continue. It was clear to me in the end that the Republicans they prefer are anti-Trump Republicans.”

Former CNN analyst Stephen Moore told Mediaite: “Who are the Republicans? John Kasich? He hates Trump! CNN is the hate Trump network. They just trash Trump every single hour of every single day. All they’ve talked about for two years is the Mueller report and how bad does it make them look now that it proved nothing?”

Former CNN contributor Buck Sexton told Mediaite: “People ask me ‘how could you ever have worked at CNN?’ and I tell them, honestly, that CNN has always been Left of center, but it used to have on real conservatives and, while not friendly to them, was at least interested in a serious exchange of ideas. But Trump broke CNN.”

    Trump didn’t break them. Their lies and their stupid hateful White House reporter finally caught up with them. No responsibility still, let’s blame Trump for our downfall.

    Yes. That is what they call conservatives, but they are describing what they do not acknowledge in themselves. The market is working, and CNN should close. What is painful for some in the present can work for the best in the end.

    Fake news doesn’t sell well and hopefully most viewers are discerning enough to watch a different network that doesn’t promote hate and false narratives. CNN is a propaganda network!

    CNN is breaking itself with its continued falsehoods and leftist propaganda. Trump just tells it like he sees it and then CNN stumbles all over itself in full Trump Derangement Syndrom mode.

    Apparently, any workers who aren’t part of the anti-Trump campaign are no longer necessary. The whole nasty boat full of liars and haters of Trump are getting their feet wet as it slowly sinks because of the self inflicted damages.

    What can you expect from a Turner owned company? He and the bitch he is married to (Hanoi Jane) can both go to hell.

    I don’t feel sorry for them at all. They did it to themselves. And they just wouldn’t let up. They were digging their way out of a hole with a shovel. And it just didn’t work.
