Skip to comments.CNN President Jeff Zucker: ‘We’re Not Going To Be Shamed’ Into Covering Benghazi

CNN President Jeff Zucker declared his network would not going to be shamed into covering Benghazi and other stories without real news value at an awards dinner Monday.
Capital New York reports that Zucker explained CNNs post-plane plans during an interview at the Deadline Clubs annual dinner on Monday night.
I dont think theres any question about our commitment to breaking news, as evidenced by all the questions about the plane, Zucker told The New York Times Bill Carter (RELATED: The five most ridiculous aspects of CNNs missing Malaysian flight coverage).
So were still there whenever that happens, he continued, but were going to supplement that with some different kind of storytelling.
What kind of stories? Climate change is one of those stories that deserves more attention, that we all talk about, he explained though he lamented the fact that when we do do those stories, there does tend to be a tremendous amount of lack of interest on the audiences part.
But there are some stories Zucker is loathe to touch, like the House select committee on Benghazi scandal.
Were not going to be shamed into it by others who have political beliefs that want to try to have temper tantrums to shame other news organizations into covering something, he explained, taking a not-so-subtle shot at the Republican Party. If its of real news value, well cover it.

i guess news is only what YOU think it is
Please tell me it's satire.
CNN has no shame, check. Color me shocked.
This is too funny. Nobody is watching you, who will know ?
“All the news that’s fit to twist, slant, or spike!”
This is the same guy that WROTE Obama’s Styrofoam columns speech, while also Prez of NBC Entertainment!
He is so far in the tank for Dems that he would have to take off his tie to take a dump.
Liberals cannot be shamed—we know that. Exhibit A—Bill Clinton. Go away Zucker—you’re a disgrace to the First Amendment.
stick with those instincts, Zucker....they’ve certainly have served you well (snark)
Hey, CNN, nice job covering the Chinese uprising of 1989. Since then, well... You can always hope for another plane crash.
I would really love to see Rush put a group together and take over CNN.
No one cares ,no one watches CNN
Do you and/or does your organization have one or more "minders"?
I don't know, but I am quite curious.
So Great Jeff, Lessee, you have what 250k viewers in Prime Time on a good night, and you are admitting censorship over the murder of four Americans due to a terror attack and gun running to the Islamists. Great call Dufus. How is the Katie show going?
I think what Zucker actually said was “We’re not going to be shamed into covering the news”.
CNN - Continually No News, all the time
CNN - Classical News Nonsense
Military men were relieved of command for wanting to save American lives in Libya, yet Obama claimed he did everything he could to save those Americans. . . He Lied
There, Fixed it.
Well, I declare! This is NOT SATIRE. He actually said this as a corporate policy statement. Confirming, once again, that CNN is but one News Groups in the Paid Liars organization, operated directly from Valerie Garrett’s double secret, private laptop.
