Jeff Zucker might be between a rock and a hard place Thursday as the president recently called for AT&T to fire the media giant’s boss.
The recent feud between the president and CNN got started when Trump mocked Carl Bernstein – a prestigious Watergate reporter – for lying about Micheal Cohen having damning information about his client, and ready to share it with Robert Mueller when the time came.
“CNN is being torn apart from within based on their being caught in a major lie and refusing to admit the mistake,” Trump tweeted. “Sloppy @carlbernstein, a man who lives in the past and thinks like a degenerate fool, making up story after story, is being laughed at all over the country! Fake News.”
It did not take CNN very long to write back to the president, implying that he was the fool and not Carl Bernstein.
Trump’s ongoing dispute with CNN doesn’t look like it will end anytime soon, as the network and the president seem to be holding their ground concerning the widely-criticized report about Cohen. The president went even further than the false news story and accused CNN of not being able to function because of their “hatred and extreme bias of me.”
While the chairman and CEO of AT&T – Randall Stephenson – has complete authority to do what the president suggests, he has refused to comment on the matter, according to Fox News.
