PASADENA, Calif. (AP) - CNN president Jeff Zucker says the Republican Party is being run from the headquarters of Fox News Channel.
Zucker's comments to reporters on Friday came in response to an interview Fox News Channel CEO Roger Ailes gave earlier this week where he suggested that CNN had thrown in the towel on the news business.
Zucker said Ailes' criticism was silly and meant to deflect attention from an upcoming book on Fox News and its boss by New York magazine writer Gabriel Sherman. He said no other network covers news as substantively and seriously as CNN.
