CNN Slammed by CNN Staffers: Jeff Zucker as Captain Ahab

Jeffrey Lord nails it — CNN’s Jeff Zucker as Captain Ahab:

Project Veritas undercover tapes released.


In a stunning story that James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas is now releasing this week, a series of CNN president Jeff Zucker’s morning staff meetings were secretly recorded — by a CNN staffer (who, for sure, has quickly been fired.)

The findings, as here, were released just as CNN prepared to co-host Tuesday’s Democratic presidential debate with the New York Times. (The Times, recall, has had one of its own internal staff get-togethers secretly recorded and released.)

The headline:

PART 1: CNN Insider Blows Whistle on Network President Jeff Zucker’s Personal Vendetta Against POTUS

CNN’s Cary Poarch, who is identified as a contract satellite uplink technician at CNN’s Washington bureau, secretly recorded Zucker and others at CNN at the morning meetings. Other CNN staffers were captured on video discussing Jeff Zucker’s Trump obsession. Zucker can be allegedly heard on the audio tapes saying this, among other things:

I don’t care about the MSNBC event, OK? I don’t care about them. Let’s just stay very focused on impeachment. We shouldn’t just pretend, oh, this is going one way. And so all of these moves are toward impeachment.

After all these months and months of pushing the Trump–Russia conspiracy theory that has now crashed and burned, not to mention the Stormy Daniels business, Democrats are now all about Ukraine. And Jeff Zucker is exactly right — everything that has been done since the president took office is designed with one goal in mind: impeachment.

What is driving the news here is that Jeff Zucker is not some Democratic strategist advising Nancy Pelosi and Adam Schiff. He’s the president of CNN, and as these tapes illustrate, when he says “do it this way,” CNN staffers hop to to follow the boss’s instructions.
