CNN president Jeff Zucker threatens President Trump

journalists-creed

In the 2016 election, many in the mainstream media were in-your-face with their pro-Hillary partisan bias. See:

All boastful hyperbole aside, it was the Alternative Media’s reporting, especially the emails of the DNC, Hillary, and John Podesta released by the heroic WikiLeaks, which played an estimable role in helping Donald Trump defeat Hillary Clinton.

Although the New York Times has expressed regret for its biased reporting, others have not, notably the Washington Post and CNN (Cable News Network) who have only redoubled their undisguised and adamant opposition against President Trump.

It was Washington Post that approvingly and with malice cited an anonymous website’s (PropOrNot) defamation of of 200 AltMedia websites as intentional or unintentional agents of the Russian government in the 2016 election. See:

CNN also makes clear its continuing bias and hostility against Trump. See:

On January 17, 2017, CNN’s president Jeff Zucker went beyond the network’s biased reporting when he issued a veiled but real threat against President Trump.

In a discussion with Gabriel Sherman of New York magazine on Jan. 18, 2017, Zucker defended CNN’s report of a Russian dossier by Obama administration intelligence agencies containing an unverified fabrication of Trump, while in Moscow, hiring prostitutes to urinate on a hotel bed that Obama allegedly had slept in.

See “CNN Fake News: U.S. intelligence memo says Russia has ‘compromising’ information on Trump

When he was asked why CNN saw fit to publish allegations that “weren’t verified,” Zucker answered that “We didn’t pass judgment on the allegations. We reported we had not been able to corroborate them.”

Then he was asked if he’s “concerned about getting access to Trump,” given Trump bypassing a CNN reporter at his press conference the week before. This is what President of CNN Worldwide Jeff Zucker said:

I think the era of access journalism as we’ve known it is over. It doesn’t worry me that Donald Trump hasn’t done an interview with CNN in eight months. I think our credibility is higher than ever, and our viewership is higher than ever, and our reporting is as strong as ever. One of the things I think this administration hasn’t figured out yet is that there’s only one television network that is seen in Beijing, Moscow, Seoul, Tokyo, Pyongyang, Baghdad, Tehran, and Damascus — and that’s CNN. The perception of Donald Trump in capitals around the world is shaped, in many ways, by CNN. Continuing to have an adversarial relationship with that network is a mistake.

I take Zucker’s statement “Continuing to have an adversarial relationship with that network is a mistake” to be a threat that implies that CNN — a cable and satellite television channel owned by the Turner Broadcasting System division of a U.S. company, Time Warner  — will continue to engage in biased reporting in order to create and foment a negative perception of the President of the United States “in capitals around the world”.

  1. Says Zucker (tongue-in-cheek?) ‘I think our credibility is higher than ever, and our viewership is higher than ever, and our reporting is as strong as ever.’ This guy’s living in fantasyland. But I guess if you’re filthy rich you don’t need to have real viewers and real readers to keep your fake news company afloat.

  2. With a name like Zucker, it’s GOTTA be good!

    Decades before it was the Clinton News Network, CNN was known among the circles in which I traveled as the Communist News Network. Boasting that it’s permitted in “Beijing, Moscow, Seoul, Tokyo, Pyongyang, Baghdad, Tehran, and Damascus” certainly doesn’t dissuade the mind from embracing that label.

  5. Trump did have FOX in his corner, gushing with unquestioned praise of him. CNN broadcast more Trump campaign stops live, than they did for Clinton and Saunders.

    He’s President of ALL AMERICANS now, not just the small minority that voted for him.

    Almost half of THE AMERICAN PEOPLE did not bother voting at all, they were so uninspired by the choice given the American Electorate! That’s a Fact of Reality. Of those who did vote over half did not vote Trump. That’s a True Fact of Reality. It does not invalidate the Fact and Reality Donald Trump won the LEGAL RIGHT to govern. Legal and Moral are not always one and the same.

    What Trump supporters take as action, watching from CanaDa free of the Republican-Democrat Political Partisanship pressures and fissures, I see only as photo-ops giving an illusionary impression of action taken and a false impression campaign promises have been kept.

    In the system the Founding Fathers devised, the President can sign Executive Orders until he’s blue in the Face. They go nowhere if Congress doesn’t approve spending the money to implement them. Obama signed an Executive Order to shut down Guantanamo as one of his 1st acts. He’s gone, and Guantanamo remains and could be filled with people Trump really doesn’t like.

    It is interesting you posted a link to, “It’s War. Time to choose which side you’re on,”

    True Christians, of ALL Americans, should be aware of the words of the Living Resurrected Christ in the Revelation of his Being,
    These things say the Amen, the Faithful and True witness, the Beginning of the Creation of God;
    I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot: I would you were cold or hot. (“It’s War. Time to choose which side you’re on”)
    So then because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spew you out of my mouth.
    Because you say, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and don’t know you are wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:……………………..
    Revelation 3

    Removing the rose coloured glasses, I see the Trump Presidency is putting Life and spirit into the letters of this ancient Biblical Prophecy like never before,
    “And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;
    Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.”

    On the earth part of the prophecy, most people with eyes wide open see that’s what’s happening in this material world.

    What about the signs in the sun and in the moon?
    According to NASA, on August 21, 2017, there will be a TOTAL eclipse of the Sun. Of all the Nations in the path of the eclipse, the US is the only one that will experience the TOTAL darkness for the duration

    And the nations were angry, and your wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that you should give reward to your servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear your name, small and great; and should destroy them which destroy the earth.
    Revelation 11:18

    Therefore rejoice, you heavens, and you that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabitants of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knows that he has but a short time.
    Revelation 12:12

    Everyone with TV can see the Nations are angry getting angrier, reflecting God’s wrath.
    What about the devil’s wrath, and who can discern which wrath is which???

    There relentless focus of the nonsensical story of Trump and russian connections reminds of a story circulating, I think during obama’s first fraud term, by , if I remember right, a husband and wife who had spent time in russia, and had been told by associates that russia was grooming a certain person to become what would be the first black U.S. president. They claimed they were also given his name, which we all now know.

    I truly can not remember all details now, but I’m sure it can still be googled. But what is ironic is how it was ignored by the media, just as every thing exposing the fraud obama was and is.

  8. Zucker is absolute SCUM, and he should be treated as such. President Trump has started off well by revoking CNN’s press credentials.
    Make no mistake: The mainstream media is floundering, whether they know it or not. (I am certain some of them do).
    I remain confident that President Trump will know how to deal with pipsqueaks like Zucker!

    • For all readers: please know that I HAVE been shot, and the bullet took out my R femur completely, so that I was unable to stand on both feet. By the grace of God it missed my femoral artery [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Femoral_artery], or I would have been dead in less than 3 minutes.

      I also have injured both my R & L rotator cuffs, esp. my R one, and the ‘bruise’ this PoS showed is so slight it is laughable in terms of a serious wound. I had NO colouration around the entry point of the bullet, although I do have a very small scar there, and on the rear of my leg for the exit wound.

      I hope this PoS is exposed and suffers for extorting insurance money for a false claim. At nearly 74, I now accept that the MSM’s 24/7 stream of BS will never stop in what’s left of my life, say 20 years?

Should you need help with this, just dial 1-8mo-ssad, however this line is down from sunset Fridays to sunset Saturdays. If this is an urgent matter, try the desk phone at CIA Langley and ask for ‘Special Operations’.

  13. Certainly sounds like a threat. It sounds as if he plans to make common cause with our enemies instead of with the American people and their president. It’s interesting that Obama’s spokesperson came out and said, in Obama’s name, that he has always opposed discrimination against people because of their faith or religion. This, then, is Obama telling the world that Trump IS engaged in a “Muslim ban,” and IS discriminating against Muslims because of their faith. This is something that McCain and all the other RINO’s and the Democrats CLAIM that Trump’s policy will do–cause people around the world to believe that the USA is at war with Islam, instead of with terrorists. So with whom is Obama making common cause, and what purpose does it serve for Obama to make this false claim against President Trump?

  15. As Sunday approached, a neighbor volunteered a home. Production wizards got wind of the project and offered their help in recording it. The likes of Jeff Zucker, Holly Schiffer, Peter Rosenfeld, Darin Moran, Jean Martin, Andy Blumenthal, and Nick Phoenix rearranged schedules to participate. Holly Schiffer was able to get three High Definition cameras (Panasonic HVX250’s), and an AVID editing facility. When Jeff Zucker went to pick up the camera package, Ted Schilowitz happened to be there and offered a RED camera set up on a Steadi Cam:

        these tribal members just like Zucker and Howard Shultz thought they were all going to get closer to having their totalitarian Marxist World order sewn up with Hillary’s election. Now that they didn’t get what they were counting on, they are enraged and in tantrum mode, and you are really seeing the masks come off. Despite all their phony claims to be operating out of righteousness, you can see how vicious they are. Their compassion for all the refugees and people of color goes as far as it can be used to destroy Europeans peoples and Christianity.
