The wheels are falling off at CNN.
And there is no end in sight to the catastrophe.
Now Megyn Kelly warned a major show was about to drop in a big CNN sex scandal.
Network President Jeff Zucker resigned in disgrace after admitting he did not disclose a years-long affair with CNN marketing executive Allison Gollust.
On her podcast, former Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly analyzed the Zucker implosion and noted that there are serious doubts about Zucker’s claim that he and Gollust began their relationship around the time COVID began.
“She became, as you say an executive VP at the network, she reported directly to him,” Kelly stated. “He admits he should’ve disclosed it and didn’t. But the question is when … the question is when was that [relationship began].”
Katie Couric noted in her recent book that she found the relationship between Zucker and Gollust odd about ten years ago.
Kelly suggested that CNN may face more scandal and scrutiny if it comes out that Zucker brought Gollust to CNN – the two worked together at NBC – and promoted Gollust to executive vice president because of their narrative.
“Because if they’re still misleading, they need to come clean,” Kelly continued. “If he began this affair a long time ago, prior to promoting her to being an executive vice president of the company, this is going to get ugly.
“It’s going to get ugly for him,” Kelly added. “And it’s going to get ugly for her and for others at CNN. Because you’re really not allowed to do that without disclosing that you have a personal relationship with that person.”
The fallout may not be contained to Zucker and Gollust.
The CEO of CNN’s parent company WarnerMedia, Jason Kilar, hosted a town hall meeting with CNN employees, and Zucker’s acolytes were worried about their job security.
“Staffers asked whether the ‘punishment fit the crime,’ and pushed Kilar to disclose whether more damaging info was likely to emerge from the outside investigation into the Chris Cuomo debacle. One employee said they felt ‘less safe’ with Zucker gone,” POLITICO’s Max Tani reported.
The left-wing partisans and hacks on CNN have plenty to concern themselves with.
David Zaslav, CEO of Discovery – which recently merged with CNN – appeared on CNBC and lamented the fact that the public saw CNN as the news leader for the left.
This followed another interview with Zaslav last year where Zaslav lamented the partisan nature of cable news.
“I think overall we’d probably be better off if we just had news networks in America,” rather than those with an opinion element. “But we don’t. Media tends to be a reflection of where the country is. Where the country was when we launched MSNBC was much more fact-based and less divided,” Zaslav told Deadline.
The largest shareholder for Discovery, John Malone, recently expressed his desire for CNN to be more like Fox News and stop all the left-wing partisanship.
Jeff Zucker was one of the most powerful and poisonous figures in the media.
Zucker turned CNN from a news network to a WWE-style entertainment brand with Donald Trump and conservatives cast as the villains.
But in the process, Zucker destroyed CNN’s credibility by immersing the network in lies, misinformation, conspiracy theories and hoaxes all designed to hurt Donald Trump and help Democrats.
