Why I’m surprised Zucker allowed Lynne Russell to come on CNN

This afternoon on CNN Newsroom with Brooke Baldwin, former CNN Headline News anchor Lynne Russell called in for an interview about the deadly shooting incident with herself, her husband Chuck De Caro, and a would-be robber in an Albuquerque Motel 6.

Why am I surprised she was permitted to come on CNN, you ask?

Well, in a Facebook post, she wrote not-very-flatteringly about current CNN Worldwide president, Jeff Zucker and his journalists: “More advanced variants, called Zuckersuckers, are true brain implants which instantaneously vacuum out non-journalistic impulses before they can be manifested; in the interim, only reversion to old fashioned, very-high-voltage electroshock has been effective.”

Ouch… Calling CNNers “Zuckersuckers”? Gotta admit, a pretty nice jab.

  1. When I think back to Headline News, I always think of her. There was a pre-Internet day I checked in with that channel often to get a quick take on the news.
