Jeff Zucker’s sudden departure from CNN has sent the network into chaos.
According to Fox news, “WarnerMedia CEO Jason Kilar fielded questions during an in-house town hall from disgruntled CNN staffers who are depressed and angry that CNN’s now-former boss, Jeff Zucker, was forced to step down last week.”
CNN host Don Lemon voiced his concern about Cuomo’s severance package.
“Did you think about what message it sends to the journalists in the company and also to the larger public that someone can be found to break with those journalistic standards and then get paid handsomely for it?” Lemon asked, according to the Wall Street Journal.
The WSJ noted that Lemon claimed he was asking “on behalf of people who posed that question to him.”
Kilar didn’t answer the question.
