Home Media Media Mayhem as Big Personalities Are Tossed for a Variety of Reasons:...

It’s been a red letter day for media mayhem.

In the space of a weekend, well known media faces, plus the head of a huge company, have been tossed out for a variety of reasons.

Of course, at Fox News, there’s still no mention of Tucker Carlson being fired. At Rupert Murdoch’s NY Post, the Carlson story is buried but Don Lemon getting fired at CNN is splattered all over the website.

Then there’s the saga of NBC Univeral CEO Jeff Shell, who was fired because he was having an affair with a CNBC correspondent, Hadley Gamble. Will she be fired, too? Stay tuned…

All of this comes not that long after the two anchors of “Good Morning America” in the afternoon, each married, were having an affair with each other.

Add to that soon “Dr. Phil” and “Rachael Ray” are going off the air — with no scandals. The entire landscape of media is changing fast, for good and for bad.

CNN has wanted to get rid of Don Lemon for a long time. Just before the announcement about his departure, CNN announced that Gayle King and Charles Barkley are getting a weekly prime time show, and Chris Wallace’s weekly show is being moved into prime time. With Carlson gone at 9pm, CNN has lucked out.

Next move for CNN: Bring John Berman back to the morning show. Next move for Fox: fire Maria Bartiromo and Sean Hannity.
