Jeff Zucker, CNN’s CEO, admitted as much:
The cable news mogul’s remarks appeared in a Wall Street Journal report detailing the ratings boom that CNN has enjoyed since the start of 2016 presidential election. Zucker mused that there is much more to be gained by playing it down the middle with news coverage, as opposed to skewing to the left or right.
In the past, he conceded, CNN has strayed to the left.
“I think it was a legitimate criticism of CNN that it was a little too liberal,” he said.
