[OP-ED]: CNN used to cover scandals. Now it’s immersed in them

Cuando el mago de los programas-realidad, Mark Burnett, ofreció un programa en que Trump abusaba de los concursantes mientras buscaba un “Aprendiz”, Zucker literalmente saltó y cerró la puerta para que Burnett no pudiera salir antes de firmar el trato. Univision

Conservatives insist that CNN is DOA.

That’s nonsense. Ratings are high and profits are up. All this since the man who made a fortune by building up Donald Trump as a television star -- Jeff Zucker, the head of CNN who used to run NBC -- seems to have decided that there is more money to be made from tearing down Trump now that he is president.

En abril de 2015, mientras trabajaba como corresponsal político en jefe para Politico, Thrush envió una serie inapropiada de emails al presidente de la campaña de Hillary Clinton, John Poodesta. En uno de ellos, Thrush dijo a Podesta que estaba trabajando en una historia de recaudación de fondos y preguntó:”¿Puedo mandarte un par de párrafos, extraoficialmente, para asegurarme de que no meto la pata en nada?”. nytimes.com

Americans sense that Big Media is a big mess, but they can’t put their finger on why that is. 

Memory takes me back to August 1997, when I arrived in Phoenix to start my first full-time newspaper job as a general assignment reporter. I was greeted by the managing editor, an old-school journalist who spelled out the rules of the profession and made clear what he expected from me.

I have tried to evaluate Donald Trump’s presidency fairly. I’ve praised him when he has appointed competent people to high office and expressed support for his policies when they seemed serious and sensible (even though this has drawn criticism from some quarters). But there has always been another aspect to this presidency lurking beneath the surface, sometimes erupting into full view as it did this week. Donald Trump, in much of his rhetoric and many of his actions, poses a danger to American democracy.

Backing off from their key campaign promise marks a big defeat for both Ryan and the president, who’d pushed hard for the bill and then pressed for a vote on it. Trump is now presenting himself as a bystander to the loss, and Republican voters may well side with him.
