Why does Jeff Zucker hate CNN?
Hot on the heels of CNN's embarrassing non-stop coverage of the poop ship, the guy who is supposed to save the sinking ratings of CNN seems to believe the secret to success is pushing out its best talent. Zucker clearly reneged on his promise to give her a prime-time slot, so Soledad O'Brien is likely leaving the station. And this is the understatement of the year so far:
The source added, “Soledad is talented at producing in-depth, serious pieces of journalism, and is a tough interviewer. That doesn’t seem to fit the direction the network is going.”Rather sad to watch what was once the best news source on the teevee fall so far from relevance.
