Despite these ongoing scandals, Clinton’s close yet questionable ties to media outlets such as Google, CNN, PBS and The New York Times have seemed to pay off. These entities have gone out of their way to censor negative stories about Clinton, particularly ones involving the Clinton Foundation. There’s one common thread though these media outlets suppressing harmful Clinton stories all share: they’ve donated to the Clinton Foundation.
On Sunday, CNN’s “Reliable Sources” host, Brian Stelter, defended Clinton and attacked AP’s Executive Editor Kathleen Carroll. Instead of questioning Clinton’s dubious conduct as Secretary of State, Stelter questioned why the AP published the story in the first place and labeled it as “misleading.”
On the other hand, CNN attempted to debunk harmful reports about Clinton’s health by suggesting that concerns for the Democratic presidential nominee’s health are both a conspiracy and sexist. And once again, Google has gone out of its way to censor these damaging reports about Clinton. The tech company is suppressing stories about Clinton’s health in its search bar.
Time Warner, which owns CNN, has donated $963,747 to Hillary Clinton.
As the cable news networks take stock of their rapidly falling ratings, it appears CNN chief Jeff Zucker is at least one network boss who has finally realized his network is “too liberal.” Not long ago, CNN’s top man said it was a fair criticism that his news network leaned too far to the left. In a recent interview with the Wall Street Journal, Zucker agreed saying, “I think it was a legitimate criticism of CNN that it was a little too liberal.”
Quote from the article: "CNN boss Jeff Zucker has big plans for the 24-hour news network that involve less news and more 'attitude.' [...] 'The goal for the next six months is that we need more shows and less newscasts,' he said."
Zucker is a member of the board of directors of the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, Temple Emanu-El, the Robin Hood Foundation, the American Film Institute, the Paley Center for Media, and the Museum of the Moving Image.
