Jeff Zucker (born April 9, 1965) is the president of CNN. Having previously served as the President and CEO of NBC Universal, he is known for injecting left-wing messages into his programming. Zucker has recently become very outspoken about his hatred of Republicans. He has also allegedly accused critics of the Obamacare website of being racist. Along with his work in liberal media activism, Zucker has been involved in partisan politics.
In 2008, he donated money to the Barack Obama presidential campaign and in 2000, he was offered a position in a possible Al Gore administration. In 2010, Zucker revealed that he has considered running for political office and in 2013, his son, Andrew Zucker, briefly worked for Democrat politician Cory Booker. In June 2017, Zucker accepted the resignations of three CNN journalists who posted a disparaging story about a Trump advisor on the basis of a single, anonymous source.
