Jeff Zucker shaking up CNN
New York Post, by Claire Atkinson

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 2/3/2013 11:00:40 AM

In the weeks leading up Jeff Zucker’s official start date at CNN the ex-NBC chief set up a series of dinners with Washington, DC, insiders, and then jetted to Atlanta to check the lay of the land. Zucker also alerted the Los Angeles talent agencies — even prior to his first call with reporters about landing the new job — to say he’s in the market for TV hosts. And before the ink was dry on his business cards, Zucker named ABC News’ Chris Cuomo as one of hias morning-show hosts. Erin Burnett, a darling of Zucker’s from

I heard that CNN is so desperate for viewers they will start broadcasting news!

I prefer feedback forums like this one or talk radio call backs. The left runs from and despises anything where the public can throw their tomatoes at their lies.

Shakeup? Just rearranging the deck chairs. Same old same old.

Chris Cuomo is son of former New York Governor Mario Cuomo and the brother of current New York Governor Andrew Cuomo

Rachel Nichols is married to music executive Max Nichols, son of director Mike Nichols who is married to Diane Sawyer.

Erin Burnett married David Rubulotta, a managing director at Citigroup.

Jeff - - CNN is losing the ratings war with MSNBC - - which now owns the far left viewers.

So - - the solution is easy. Just move further left - - way further left - - than MSNBC. Paint MSNBC as tools of the far right - - and you´ll then own all the far left viewers - - - - -

- - - all 47 of them.

Shake up! Is it forgotton that Zucker headed up the propaganda arm of the democrat communist party, NBC otherwise know affectionately as the National Broadcasting Communists? All Zucker is doing is producing is the same old communist propagada wine in a different bottle. CNN will remain what it has been for so many years: The Communist News Network and it will continue to have miniscule ratings under the reign of the propaganda stooge Zucker.

If Zucker was the Captain of the Titabic it would have sank twice as fast. CNN will take another huge dive with Zucker at the helm. But, in this case, no loss if CNN sinks.

I doubt sincerely that Zucker will do anything to right the limpness of CNN. The problem with CNN is one the libs do not see, don´t want to see and will not see. they just can not imagine the people out here in TV land do not want to listen to a bunch of whining liberals curse and malign our nation while putting plastic and sparkles all over the Dictator in chief. LoInfos do not give a hoot about real news, nor do they need daily reminders of who is in charge of their welfare checks and immigration awareness. While the real Americans, devoted to working for a living are not going to CNN at all- they despise it for what it is. CNN´s problem is the same one Air America had- total unpopularity because it is leftist. And, like the Air America holders, CNN´s people will not change the deadly and dreary venue even if they were the last lefty network in existence.

I hope Zucker contacts Bob Beckel and Juan Williams from FOX, they would be ideal hosts for that leftwing lunatic network.

CNN & HLN are overtly bias...anti-Republican and against traditional US values. Their avid viewers are leftists,liberals,progressives,and Democrats. Fox News is a better viewer choice they are moderate and support traditional US values...which attracts moderates and Republicans by the many millions regularly. I watch Fox News and do so daily.

After Zucker finishes shaking CNN, he´ll end up with the same worthless CNN he started with.

147 immigrants found in
Alton stash house
Monitor [McAllen TX], by Karen Antonacci    Original Article

U.S. Border Control agents detained 147 people suspected of being in the country illegally from a stash house Thursday afternoon in Alton — shortly after 81 people were found hiding in makeshift huts in McAllen. The 147 people were discovered in a house at the 8900 block of North Bentsen Palm Drive. Border Patrol spokesman Danny Tirado said he didn’t recall the exact time of the bust, but said it was not too long after the 81 people were found in a brushy area of McAllen northwest of Sprague and North 10th Street about 1 p.m. The 147 people detained

Reports are flying across the Internet about the possibility that Apple’s satellite map app just snapped a pic of the elusive “Loch Ness monster.” Long speculated to be a relative of the dinosaur-era plesiosaur, many have chalked the rumors up to baseless monster talk. Until now. (Photograph) Could this satellite imagery hold a clue that scientists on the hunt have been missing? Could the Loch Ness monster be real?

Bunkersville, Nevada — Cliven Bundy’s ranch, recently the site of a tense stand-off that started over two weeks ago between the federal government and the Bundy family, had morphed into a good old-fashioned family picnic complete with live country music, hamburgers, and hotdogs Friday. A week after the Bureau of Land Management’s armed force left Bunkersville, Bundy and his supporters continue to make the family’s case relating to Bundy’s right to graze his cattle on public land his family has been on for many years. Bundy told Breitbart News the only communication he has received from the BLM recently has been

The president´s speeches may need to be accompanied by a laugh track from now on, considering the crickets he received at his appearance in Community College of Allegheny County, in Oakdale, Pa., on Wednesday. Although he tried to tout his new spending program, both Obama´s talking points and attempts at humor didn´t go over so well: At the end, when the president walked back from the podium to smile and wave at the roughly 60 people in the bleachers 20 feet behind him, he faced a unfriendly wall of faces. The White House video of the bleacher’s front rank shows three men with their hands crossed, one with his hands stuck

The Clintons had a busy night of celebrations after Chelsea announced she and husband Marc Mezvinsky are expecting a baby. Bill joined “House of Cards” star Kevin Spacey at the Revlon Rainforest Fund Benefit Concert at Carnegie Hall Thursday, joking of Spacey’s Machiavellian character, “When I was president people accused me of murder all the time, made a show of investigating. Spacey’s president for 15 minutes and he gets away with murder.” Spacey, who sang during the event with Sting, Stephen Stills and James Taylor, also showed off his Johnny Carson impression, taking a swipe at the coverage of Flight

Two Democratic Party candidates in the primary race for California´s 33rd congressional district in West Los Angeles have accused local party officials of using an arbitrary fundraising minimum to favor established insiders--then raising that minimum at the last moment to exclude them from a recent candidates´ forum. Democrats Kristie Holmes and Barbara Mulvaney issued a joint press release earlier this week, accusing the Pacific Palisades Democratic Club (PPDC) of "uninviting" them from a forum on Sunday, April 13 "after first zealously pursuing them." Only candidates who participated were eligible for the club´s

Ted Cruz, Invoking Reagan,

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too
