Susie Madrak of Crook and Liars has a great piece up about the BS that Jeff Zucker is spewing. According to Zucker, he is not interested in hiring Trump officials that he thinks are liars. He wants to hire “independent-minded” people like Nikki Haley.
Let that sink in for a nanosecond.
Since when is anyone who works for Trump independent-minded? Who has their reputations intact after working for Trump? Everything that Trump touches is soiled.
And Madrak links to the Hill article that has this lovely qoutes:
“We’ve seen that anytime you break away from the Trump story and cover other events in this era, the audience goes away,” he added. “So we know that, right now, Donald Trump dominates.”
Zucker said he wants CNN to be a home for both supporters and opponents of the president, despite harsh criticism of the news outlet from Trump and other Republicans.
“On MSNBC, you rarely hear from people who do support Trump,” Zucker said. “We want to be home to both those points of view.”
WTF? RARELY hear from people who support Trump on MSNBC? Has he never watched Morning Joe? Scarborough helped get Trump elected! Chuck Todd and Chris Matthews regularly throw some sickening Trump supporter at viewers.
As Madrk pointed out, it only took a few pipe bombs to get Zucker’s attention, but it sure sounds like Zucker is still figuring out how to make a buck off of Trump, even it it may get some of his employees killed.
