In a New York Times column on Sunday, media columnist Ben Smith wrote that Zucker didn't realize what a ratings success Trump would be when he first announced his bid for president. He initially dismissed Trump as a 'sideshow' but then changed his tune and spent the lead up to the election saturating CNN with Trump coverage. Despite his efforts, Trump seemingly fell out with Zucker...
    Mike Coppola/Getty Images CNN President Jeff Zucker has faced intense criticism after Fox News host Tucker Carlson released audio of a friendly phone call between him and Michael Cohen in March 2016. The audio featured Zucker offering Cohen debate tips for his client, then-presidential candidate Donald Trump.

    CNN President Jeff Zucker should resign from his job if he believes in critical race theory and its arguments about white privilege, Fox News host Tucker Carlson argued Tuesday. The "Tucker Carlson Tonight" host devoted the opening segment of his program to the reaction that followed President Trump's announcement last week halting critical race theory training for federal employees.

    As Kamala Harris officially becomes Joe Biden's running mate, an old report about CNN president Jeff Zucker's past support for the California Democrat is raising eyebrows.

    Unlike J.K. Rowling or Donald Trump, Reza Aslan knows what it’s like to be “canceled.” On the evening of June 3, 2017, a van barreled into a crowd of pedestrians on London Bridge before its passengers emerged, stabbing onlookers in nearby Borough Market. Before their blood was even dry, or the culprits’ identities revealed, President Donald Trump tweeted, “We need to be smart, vigilant and tough. We need the courts to give us back our rights. We need the Travel Ban as an extra level of safety!” That Trump was using an in-progress terrorist attack as justification for his so-called “Muslim Ban,” which he described as “a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States” during...
