Here’s what The New York Post reported:
David Zaslav, the CEO of CNN’s parent company Warner Bros. Discovery, defended the ratings-challenged cable network’s decision to broadcast a town hall with former President Donald Trump next week.
“He’s the frontrunner, he has to be on our network,” Zaslav said Friday during an interview on CNBC’s “Squawk Box.”
Zaslav, who has been instrumental in forcing CNN to ditch the left-leaning commentary that kept Trump from appearing on the network for years, said it was important to give the 2024 Republican candidate for president a forum.
“We are a divided government. We need to hear both voices. That’s what you see. Republicans are on the air on CNN, Democrats are on the air. All voices should be heard,” Zaslav added.
The town hall, to be held Wednesday at 8 p.m. at St. Anselm College in New Hampshire, will be moderated by CNN anchor Kaitlan Collins.
