CNN President Drops HUGE Threat To Trump Day Before Inauguration…

The relationship between CNN and Donald Trump hasn’t exactly been a smooth one.

Last week, during Trump’s first press conference since the election, things got tense when CNN’s Jim Acosta started badgering the President-elect.

The following exchange immediately went viral.


Trump was not happy that CNN ran with a debunked and unsubstantiated BuzzFeed smear piece and he has been railing against unfair coverage from the network for over a year.

It appears the relationship isn’t getting better anytime soon.  The head of CNN issued the following veiled threat to Trump.

From Breitbart:

“It’s just unfortunate that the most powerful person in the world is trying to delegitimize journalism and an organization that plays such a vital role in our democracy,” Zucker, CNN’s president, said in an interview with New York Magazine’s Gabriel Sherman, when asked about how Trump denounced CNN as “fake news” at his press conference last week in New York City. “I think he’s entitled to his opinion, but it’s — to use one of his favorite words — sad.”

Later in the interview, when asked by Sherman about how Trump shut down CNN’s Jim Acosta telling him his network was “fake news” and instead took questions from real news outlets like Breitbart News Network and Fox News, Zucker specifically threatened Trump in a veiled way that CNN will work to hurt the incoming president’s reputation on the world stage.

“I think the era of access journalism as we’ve known it is over,” Zucker replied to Sherman. “It doesn’t worry me that Donald Trump hasn’t done an interview with CNN in eight months. I think our credibility is higher than ever, and our viewership is higher than ever, and our reporting is as strong as ever. One of the things I think this administration hasn’t figured out yet is that there’s only one television network that is seen in Beijing, Moscow, Seoul, Tokyo, Pyongyang, Baghdad, Tehran, and Damascus — and that’s CNN. The perception of Donald Trump in capitals around the world is shaped, in many ways, by CNN. Continuing to have an adversarial relationship with that network is a mistake.”

It is a little strange that Zucker is doubling down on his network’s credibility when the ratings clearly don’t back up his position.

The major networks don’t seem to understand that Trump doesn’t need them to control the narrative.  In fact, that was clearly on display during the 2016 election cycle.  Social media and internet news sites reach more people than CNN does on a given night and Trump was able to utilize that fact to his advantage.

We will have to wait and see how CNN behaves during the Trump era but it doesn’t look like they are planning on making many changes.

  3. Thank you for the article. I’ve truly thought about it before but never wanted to do anything about it. I do think because of my lack of complete understanding. Each day, however, I’m noticing more and more people getting frustrated because they think it is very complicated to understand. Exactly what really encouraged me personally again, however, seemed to be your rationale men and women would like to discuss the situation once they see their own friends commenting on the same thing. That is just how knowledge increases.

  4. I definitely wanted to post a simple remark in order to thank you for all the unique tips and tricks you are giving out on this website.

  6. My programmer is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP.
    I have always disliked the idea because of the costs.
    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress
    on a variety of websites for about a year and am nervous about switching
    to another platform. I have heard excellent things about blogengine.net.

    Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress content into it?
    Any kind of help would be greatly appreciated!

  7. I am really enjoying the theme/design of your site.
    Do you ever run into any browser compatibility problems? A few
    of my blog visitors have complained about my site
    not working correctly in Explorer but looks great in Safari.

  10. Hi there! This blog post couldn’t be written any better!
    Looking through this article reminds me of my previous roommate!
    He continually kept preaching about this. I will send this article to him.
    Fairly certain he will have a very good read.
    I appreciate you for sharing!

  11. I was wondering if you ever considered changing the page layout of your
    blog? Its very well written; I love what youve
    got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so
    people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2 images.
    Maybe you could space it out better?
