Jan. 6 Committee Members ‘Devastated’ Over Zucker’s Departure from CNN

'I think the company has made a terrible mistake by doing this...'

Four unnamed representatives who sit on the House’s seven-member Jan. 6 Committee described themselves as “devastated for our democracy” after CNN president Jeff Zucker was forced out of the far-left cable-news network, National Review reported.

Washington correspondent Jamie Gangel said the four Jan. 6 Committee members disclosed their concerns to her in private phone calls.

The House’s so-called Select Committee (comprising members all hand-picked by Speaker Nancy Pelosi) has relied on its allies in the mainstream media to push the narrative that the J6 protest constituted an attempted insurrection.

Zucker’s departure, which the company disguised as the result of an undisclosed affair, could mean that the committee has lost a faithful propagandist.

Gangel and other CNN employees spoke with Jason Kilar, the chief executive of CNN’s parent company, WarnerMedia, and voiced their devastation at Zucker’s departure.

“I think we’ve heard a lot of corporate double talk,” Gangel said. “I think the company has made a terrible mistake by doing this.”

During his tenure, Zucker coordinated CNN’s coverage, scripted talking points for anchors and correspondents, and ensured that the station always focused on the latest hoaxes, from Russiagate to the Ukraine impeachment to the Jan. 6 false flag.

“I do not think you have any appreciation for what you’ve done to this organization,” Gangel told Kilar.

Gangel did not disclose which Jan. 6 Committee members called her about Zucker’s departure, though the panel’s two non-Democrats, Liz Cheney of Wyoming and Adam Kinzinger of Illinois, seem as desperate to keep the narrative alive as the Democrats.

In the same conversation, CNN Washington correspondent Jim Acosta said that without Zucker’s permanent focus on fabricated scandals, the station’s top anchors “probably been taken out and you would have something like Fox News lite on the air right now.”

CNN host Jake Tapper said the company would have become “benign, vanilla gruel” without Zucker’s leadership.

Facing backlash from CNN’s staff, AT&T CEO John Stankey, whose company owns WarnerMedia, has maintained that “Jeff resigned, and the decision to resign was Jeff’s decision,” Newsmax reported.

Former President Donald Trump does not believe that Zucker resigned because of an undisclosed relationship, but he instead thinks that “he is out because of horrible ratings down 90%.”
