I don’t know how many of you have read the Rollingstone about Jeff Zucker and his dealings with CNN, but it’s disgusting to read that entertainment personality Chris Cuomo was getting $6 million to shovel shit out of his brother while the local news operators and independent journalists were struggling. to keep the lights on and buy laundry detergent.
I’m not saying CNN doesn’t have good anchors and reporters who do a great job and certainly make a living. They have more than a few.
I’m saying that for the same price as Chris Cuomo’s hair product fee and budget, CNN could hire more than 65 local reporters and researchers across the country at living wages to more adequately cover local news.
Who would be against and why?
