CNN’s new president, Chris Licht, told his staff to refrain from using the phrase “the big lie” to refer to former President Donald Trump’s theories about Democrats stealing the 2020 presidential election.

Mr. Licht worries that adopting the term used by Democrats damages the perception of impartiality at the network, according to reports.

In a Tuesday call with CNN management and executive producers, the network president encouraged producers to adopt the terms “Trump election lie” or “election lies” instead, according to Mediate, which reports on media and politics.

Mr. Licht clarified during the call that he was merely suggesting staff tone it down on using “the big lie,” and that it was not to be received as a mandate.

Not all staff are enthused with the proposal.
