President Donald Trump continued his attacks on CNN on Tuesday, following the release of undercover recordings made by an alleged "whistleblower" that showed the network's anti-Trump bias.
"Now that we have found out that @CNN is a virtual fraud, rumor has it that Jeff Zucker will be resigning momentarily?"
According to Project Veritas, a conservative activist group, an undercover recording of a CNN editorial phone call claims to feature the network's president, Jeff Zucker, telling his staff to focus on covering the impeachment of Trump at the expense of other news.
"I don't care about the MSNBC event, OK? I don't care about them. Let's just stay very focused on impeachment," a person identified as Zucker says in the recording. "We shouldn't just pretend, 'oh, this is going one way.' And so all of these moves are toward impeachment."
Trump and Zucker have publicly feuded since Trump's foray into politics. The president consistently slams the news outlet as fake news. Trump floated a lawsuit threat Monday against CNN over the alleged bias.
The video also showed CNN media coordinator Nick Neville being secretly recorded.
"Jeff Zucker, basically the president of CNN, has a personal vendetta against Trump," the person identified as Neville said in the video, adding "it's not gonna be positive for Trump. [Zucker] hates him. He's going to be negative."
