Why Jeff Zucker matters to more than just the future of CNN
He's leading the last, best hope for responsible TV news on cable
Last week, on the eve of Jeff Zucker's appointment as president worldwide for CNN, I wrote about his potential to be a wise and winning choice for a very tough and important job.
I had the chance Sunday to further discuss Zucker and what he means to the future of TV news with former NBC newsman Fred Francis, who worked for Zucker at the network, and Frank Sesno, the former Washington bureau chief for CNN who is now at George Washington University. Howard Kurtz, Washington bureau chief for the Daily Beast, moderated the discussion Sunday, on his weekly media review show, "Reliable Sources," on CNN. Watch the video above.
