Far-left CNN head honcho Jeff Zucker on Wednesday morning announced he was stepping down from the failed news media outlet after failing to disclose a relationship with the network’s chief marketing officer, Allison Gollust.
“As part of the investigation into Chris Cuomo’s tenure at CNN, I was asked about a consensual relationship with my closest colleague, someone I have worked with for more than 20 years,” Zucker wrote in a memo to staffers. “I acknowledged the relationship evolved in recent years. I was required to disclose it when it began but I didn’t. I was wrong. As a result, I am resigning today.”
New York magazine reported that “Zucker and Gollust’s relationship was one of the biggest open secrets in media. CNN staffers awkwardly navigated the pairing, since every time they dealt with her, they were keenly aware that she was involved with the boss. They were rolling their eyes at Gollust’s own statement that said ‘recently, our relationship changed during Covid.’ It had been going on for much longer.”
Ironically but unsurprisingly, Gollust previously served as communications director for disgraced former New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D), CNN blowhard anchor Chris’ brother, who resigned last summer amid accusations of sexual harassment and misconduct.
