Posted on 05/20/2014 2:50:30 PM PDT by kingattax
Climate change and the missing Malaysian flight are important to CNN. The Obama administrations continued evasion of serious investigation into the 2012 attack on the American consulate in Benghazi, not so much.
At least thats what Jeff Zucker, president of CNN Worldwide, told a New York Times reporter at the Deadline Clubs annual awards dinner Monday night.
Were not going to be shamed into [Benghazi coverage] by others who have political beliefs that want to try to have temper tantrums to shame other news organizations into covering something, Zucker said. If its of real news value, well cover it.

anyone who has CNN on for 2 seconds should hang their head in shame.
If I said what I’m thinking right now about liberals like Zucker I’d be completely banned from here.... And rightfully so.
From what I've heard I'm not alone.
This traitor is incapable of feeling shame in the first place, as are most of CNN’s eleven viewers.
What’s their payback for being Obama’s poodle? He mocks them!
Just like Bush's National Guard dodging story. Right?
If they want ratings, they will cover Benghazi. But I guess the State takes care of its own.
OK then Jeff...when the story has big legs, I suppose you’ll resign..
Woodward and Bernstein were undoubtedly shamed into covering Watergate. I guess CNN is above all that.
Gee, I feel so deprived and uncool.
You bet your bunny you should be ashamed Zucker.
An administration lets a U.S. Ambassador and his security detail get wasted and won’t help because...it might look bad because it might end badly?
And then dissembles, vacillates and outright lies about the cause?
Beyond outrageous. Oh, and did we throw in making sure that some utterly uninvolved bystander in Los Angeles gets ARRESTED to try to pin blame on him, and deflect it from the African God-Man on Earth?
Nah. You’re Right, Zucker. No Above the Fray News Organization would EVER touch this.
Yea Right. Along with really important crap like Justin Bieber’s latest PR stunt, right?
They’re covering the evac of Tripoli today!
To frame the narrative that zero and thighness are/were indeed engaged in Benghazi.
Burn in hell, Zucker.
THESE are the people you need to be picketing and giving the “occupy” treatment to. If, for hypothetical example, Sarah Palin decided to lead an angry crowd of protestors to CNN headquarters as opposed to Washington DC, I wouldn’t blame her one bit. Bring it home to them that if they take a political side, they will be considered political operators with all the liabilities and risks that status implies.
Next on CNN, President B. Hussein Obama has a bowel movement. All the details, and a special indepth report on just why it was odorless.
BUT, they possess Ambassador Steven’s DIARY.
They WERE gonna cover it until the kidnapping unexpectedly morphed into a massacre.
CNN President: We Wont Be Shamed Into Covering Benghazi
That statement assumes the public believes that CNN has any shame.
I don’tthink many feel that way. As a news agency you should have been leading the charge to get to the truth about Benghazi.
CNN? Well, on the bright side, it is a bit better than MSNBC but that is not saying much. As for my sources of news, sometimes I watch Fox News but that is no longer so good. I also watch the new One America News Network which mysteriously appeared on my Verizon Fios cable. It appears they are hooked up with the Washington Times.
I get pretty much all of my news from conservative internet news sites.
This would make one heck of a billboard. I wish I had money and I would do it if lawful.
all people get from the ‘alphabet media’ are lefty stooges spewing propaganda.
Note to Jeff Zucker: Fake scandals don’t have four body bags. This one does and somebody screwed up and we just want to know who. IS that ok with you?
Won’t turn that crapola on. They’re in the toilet, in other sense of the word, anyway.
Gowdy gets those clowns on record giving the military the order to stand down or countermand a rescue/ reinforcement attempt, then you got Obama and Hillary.
Zucker said. If its of real news value, well cover it.
Are you implying that the murder of 4 Americans by muslims is somehow not of “real news value”
If their shi__y ratings haven’t shamed them into changing,nothing will.
http://politicalpistachio.blogspot.com/2012/11/obama-benghazi-liar.html Military men were relieved of command for wanting to save American lives in Libya, yet Obama claimed he did everything he could to save those Americans. . . He Lied
Very childish, Zucker.Take your ball and go home just because you may not like the results and it hurts your party/ideology. You’d of made a good loyal nazi back in the day, ignoring and/or blinded to all the wrongs. They were democrat socialists after all.
I won’t be ‘shamed’ into watching your piece of snot network. Unless I am at the airport, of course.
Hope they enjoy the swirl as they go down the chute..
Their too busy airing an awful show with Anthony Bourdain I watched it ONCE.
I think we need to take Zucker et al and air drop them into a terrorist camp.
Once there give them a radio to call for help, and let them see how it feels to be abandoned by their Messiah when the S hits the fan.
Good. And we won’t be shamed into boosting your crappy ratings.
and we're not shamed for covering for Saddam.. because we're
CNN! the most busted news source
make them all wear a shirt with a big cartoon making fun of mohammed on it....that should take care of em.
Out of the 250,000 that watch that network I doubt there will be any pressure.
They all stonewalled the Clinton/waterwater/Foster hearings UNTIL Haley Barbour was subpoenaed to testify. Then they covered it. What a disgrace.
CNN is only interested in covering non-news about the missing plane and ranting over Sterling. Refusal to cover Benghazi shows they are not a news station.
...and that’s why they’re dead last in the ratings...
how about we contact CNN sponsors and assure them that unless CNN content is about things that are really important to Americans like Benghazi, don’t expect to get any of our coins
Oops,grammatical error in post #36.
“They’re” is correct.
CNN wasn’t shamed into being Saddam’s sock puppet during the first Gulf War from Baghdad either.
