We've heard the knocks on NBC and the institutional bias that exists in its network - from the subtle spin in its flagship network's news coverage at NBC to the over-the-top bias at its cable news channel MSNBC. So maybe the man behind the curtains at NBC Universal would like to be more overt with his opinions - as a politician?
On MSNBC's Aug. 25 "Morning Joe," Jeff Zucker, president and CEO of NBC Universal, addressed both his possible political aspirations and bringing back one of the network's former star personalities. Host Joe Scarborough asked Zucker where his political interests were at this stage.
"You know Joe - look, politics is something I've always had an interest in," Zucker said. "It is something I've always thought about. It is not something that is on my current radar. It's not something I'm thinking about in the next few years, but it is something that I would always consider. I think - I love politics. I would love to give back. I would love to serve. I would love to do something, but it is not imminent. It's nothing now."

I’m gonna make a wild guess as to which party he affiliates with.....
Won’t matter. Given his background and affiliations, Zucker will get chewed up and spit out.
She’ll clear waivers....
I guess Jeff likes Katie and her rants.
He may want to change his schedule after Comcast sacks him following their acquisition.
As if you whores in the press haven't been "serving" the democrat party for decades.
Gimme a break.
IMHO, This is the media version of Johnny Damon being claimed on waivers by the Red Sox.
Pass the popcorn please!
Hey, running for office is becoming the “in” hobby for the superrich.
You have more money than God, you know you’re not going to live forever, why not throw it around, sashay about on the stage and have a great time?
I mean, it’s more fun than devoting your life to charitable pursuits, right?
Hey, you might even win and get to exercise real power. I hear that brings in the chicks even more than money.
the tone deaf one?
Katie can bring her low ratings and viewership with her.
Political run for what.
Bringing Couric back is enough to disqualify anyone.
Campaign Finance Reform really did put the ‘service’ back in ‘public service’. /s
