Jeff Zucker, President of CNN spoke at the FT Future of News conference in New York City. He blasted Fox News: “It is really state-run TV. It is a pure propaganda machine, and I think does an incredible disservice to this country.”
Hannity retorts on Twitter: “Jeff, there is a reason crowds chant CNN Sucks.”
CNN, MSNBC, and Fox News are exactly the same. There simply aren’t enough hours in the day to research and validate enough newsworthy facts to fill a 24×7 TV broadcast. The smart people whose deeply reasoned opinions I value don’t work in TV. These so called news channels maybe have an hour of worthwhile content per day. Cutting the broadcast to an hour a day is not compatible with their economic sustainability.
We are stuck with drivel from windbags, whose only real talent is filling airtime.
