CNN’s Jeff Zucker: ‘Donald Trump has made American journalism great again’

One outcome of President Donald Trump’s tirade against CNN and other news organizations is probably not the outcome the White House wanted.

Viewership is up at CNN and virtually all the cable news networks, according to Jeff Zucker, president of CNN Worldwide, who spoke at an Atlanta Press Club Newsmaker Luncheon Tuesday at the Commerce Club.

“Donald Trump has made American journalism great again,” Zucker told the audience of about 200 people.
