Editor’s Pick: Hot Air on AP Saying Zucker’s Secrecy Was the Problem

February 8th, 2022 11:12 AM

On Tuesday, Hot Air Senior Editor Ed Morrissey reported on the Associated Press concluding that the only thing disgraced CNN chief executive Jeff Zucker did wrong was to keep his affair with a subordinate a secret. As Morrissey observed: “Huh. And here I thought the lesson would be to not conspire with your paramour to turn your media outlet into a propaganda outlet for a leading politician.”

He called out the laughable reporting: “This analysis from AP Business yesterday strains so hard to miss the point that the name ‘Andrew Cuomo’ never gets mentioned — not even in relation to his brother.” Morrissey noted: “This goes along with the laments by CNN personnel about the unfairness of the ‘death penalty’ meted out to Zucker. In a way, it’s reminiscent of the reaction to Bill Clinton’s scandal in the White House, making it about sex rather than committing perjury in a deposition to cover it up.”
