CNN President Jeff Zucker issued scathing criticisms of cable news competitor Fox News during a Financial Times Future of News conference in New York City yesterday. Zucker blasted the network's programming as “state-run TV” and a “propaganda machine,” adding that its content does a “disservice to the country."
"[Fox News] is really state-run TV. It is a pure propaganda machine and I think does incredible disservice to this country,” Zucker told his audience. “The idea that it's a news channel, I think, is really not the case at all."
