Since 2015, my dad has argued that CNN was aiding Trump with endless hours of live coverage. He will be unsurprised by this article from Ben Smith in the NYT: Jeff Zucker Helped Create Donald Trump. That Show May Be Ending. “The story of Mr. Trump and Mr. Zucker is a kind of Frankenstein tale for the late television age, about a brilliant TV executive who lost control of his creation. And it illustrates the extent to which this American moment is still shaped not by the hard logic of politics or the fragmented reality of new media, but by the ineluctable power of TV.” (What is it about democracy and people whose names start with Zucker?)
