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. Zucker also floated a weekly show on CNN to be hosted by Trump, and claimed, “You cannot be elected President of the United States without CNN. FOX and MSNBC are irrelevant — irrelevant — in electing a general election candidate.”
Despite receiving minimal coverage in the news this week, some media critics were scathing in their assessments.
