CNN has two serious problems in the Age Of Trump: credibility and a lack of viewers. On top of their overtly partisan coverage, the beleaguered network is in a constant state of retracting the false information they broadcast. With that in mind, CNN Jeff Zucker accused Fox News of being “state run TV” as well as propaganda that isn’t real news. This is kind of like abortion provider Planned Parenthood accusing the NRA of killing people. Oh wait, that’s something that happened too.
The Hollywood Reporter has this one:
CNN President Jeff Zucker lashed out at competitor Fox News at an industry conference on Thursday afternoon, saying that Fox News “is really state-run TV. It is a pure propaganda machine and I think does incredible disservice to this country.”
“There are a handful of good journalists there, but I think they are lost in what is a complete propaganda machine,” said Zucker, who claimed Fox News “has nothing on” the Russian government-run TASS Russian News Agency.
“The idea that it’s a news channel, I think, is really not the case at all,” said Zucker.
CNN was literally an arm of Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign and now that Trump is President the network acts as the official voice of “The Resistance.” CNN employs activist “journalists” who do nothing but undermine Donald Trump in an effort to delegitimize his presidency.
Maybe the problem is Jeff Zucker doesn’t know what the word “propaganda” means. He obviously doesn’t know what the word “news” means as evidenced by the garbage CNN reports on.
And clearly he has issues with perception:
Zucker, on Thursday, said the last three years have been CNN’s best in the 38 years since it was founded by Ted Turner. “We’ve had a very good run,” he said. “We made CNN very much relevant again, very much a part of the national and international conversation.”
With historically terrible ratings, CNN is so bad they could be Nickleback. If CNN was a horse they’d have to put it down. CNN makes herpes seem appealing and is as popular carbon monoxide poising.
Yeah, they are part of the national conversation, as a joke. People are talking about CNN because of the scandalous level of anti-trump bias. They are mentioned by the other news outlets frequently because they are constantly shooting themselves in the foot with BS news stories.
Just to prove how impartial CNN, Zucker finished with this gem:
“[Trump] has created an atmosphere in this country that has resonated around the world in a very unhealthy way that has whipped up anti-media sentiment that is dangerous and frankly harmful and potentially incredibly dangerous. He doesn’t even understand the danger he’s causing to journalists and the danger he’s doing to media organizations,” Zucker said.
Obama arrested and prosecuted reporters and their sources under the Espionage Act, but yeah Trump is the real danger to the press because he calls CNN “fake news” when they report things that are not true.
