CNN head admits network lacked 'conservative points of view

News

CNN's top executive Jeff Zucker on Tuesday said criticism that the news channel has lacked conservative voices was "probably a valid criticism."

From Variety:

Despite the announcement that CNN has hired noted Republican Newt Gingrich as part of its new team for a revived “Crossfire,” Zucker stated he saw value in the network staying objective in its presentation of news and opinion. The idea that CNN “didn’t have enough conservative points of view was probably a valid criticism,” the executive said, though he does not expect CNN to lose abandon its positioning as a down-the-middle presenter of news.

Zucker made his remarks at a forum hosted by Fortune.
