So what? You can just insert CNN everywhere you see TMZ and Jeff Zucker everywhere Harvey Levin is mentioned.
One current staff member at CNN reports that many positive stories about Trump “would be shut down” without explanation. At CNN, like at many publications, writers pitch potential stories to editors in a daily meeting. Editors, including Zucker, make the decision whether to accept the pitch or reject it. Editors can also decide to kill a story after it is written. One former CNN staff member who spoke to ThinkProgress personally had several investigative stories that cast Trump and his family in a positive light spiked.
One former CNN staffer said working with Zucker on political stories felt “disgusting.”
“I had conversations with a lot of people during that time who were just disgusted with what was happening,” a different former CNN staffer told ThinkProgress.
