Accuracy in Media

CNN Worldwide president Jeff Zucker is the latest media executive to chime in on how his company will cover the Trump administration, telling attendees at a dinner on Tuesday for the Committee to Protect Journalists that they plan on holding the new administration’s “feet to the fire,” according to CNN’s Brian Stelter:

“We will hold the new administration’s feet to the fire. And they should respect that, even if they don’t welcome it.”

Zucker added that “it is still too early to draw conclusions about how this administration will work with the media,” but, “I think it is fair to say that based on some of what we saw during the campaign, we have some reason for concern.”

It may not matter what Zucker and his colleagues in the liberal media think or how they plan to cover the Trump administration. What is clear is that the President-elect is rewriting the rules as they relate to the media. On Monday, Trump released a YouTube video on how the transition is going and what he plans to do in his first 100 days in office. That video, which bypassed the media, has now been viewed nearly 6.3 million times and has the media in a tizzy because they think that they should be the filter for all the news coming from Trump.

That video, along with the meetings that Trump has held with the media this week in New York, represent a new order as to how the media will cover Trump once he takes office. That new order may mean fewer press conferences and more direct-to-the-public videos, along with Trump’s ubiquitous tweets to spread the administration’s message—leaving the media to find another line of attack.

    Well I guess you are biased. You sure in the hell did not hold Obama’s Administrations feet to the fire….

    To be fair, they should hold Trump’s Administration no more accountable than they did Obama’s.

    Which I highly DOUBT.

    “they plan on holding the new administration’s “feet to the fire,” according to CNN’s Brian Stelter”

    No matter what CNN does from now on. They have destroyed any chance that us deplorables will even tune them in and those that do will be to see how slanted the propaganda is.

    The Clinton News Network and shareholders Mr. and Mrs. Jane Fonda are as Marxist as is Zucker and therefore incapable of fairness and incompetent in reporting news. I didn’t hear anything about network-wide staffing changes, which should start with prosecuting Zucker.

    CNN Accidentally Airs 30 Minutes Of Hard Core, Transsexual Porn.It remains to be seen if in response to its collapsing ratings, CNN will
    refocus from waging war on “fake media”, and make airing of hard core
    porn during primetime TV a part of scheduled programming: http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2016-11-25/cnn-accidentally-airs-30-minutes-hard-core-transsexual-porn

    Oooooooo that’s SO scary! Keep lying and making up news like you always have. No one will be watching.

    With the election over, and the good guys having won, we can now go back to using the OTHER name for CNN…the Communist News Network.

    Zucker, no one cares. You were just proven to be irrelevant entirely. Why are you not in a burrow licking your wounds? WRONG WRONG WRONG is what you were, are, and will continue to be.

    Fuck You Zucker. CNN ain’t shit anymore. The only winner there was Ted Turner because he sold it when it still had value. Wolf Blitzer is Toxic, and I can’t stand the sight of him. Give up your seat at the White House Press Core to Aim.org or Infowars.com because we don’t believe anything your people say.
