When the head of CNN, Jeff Zucker, resigned this week, shock waves were sent across American media. Here was the head of scandal-ridden CNN who so far had survived his staff’s bad behavior suddenly taking himself out admitting an affair with an underling.
Sex scandals are always so convenient.
Now a report published by the New York Post claims that their sources inside CNN confirm that there is much more to the story, and it involves the lawsuit and potential settlement to former anchor Chris Cuomo.
Zucker fell on his sword in an effort to keep a possible Cuomo lawsuit against CNN from seeing the light of day, sources told The Post. The ex-CNN chief was named multiple times in a draft of a suit, which hasn’t been filed, sources said.
Zucker’s resignation came as part of an agreement hammered out with AT&T chief John Stankey, sources say. Under the agreement, Zucker would leave CNN without a fight and Stankey would settle with Cuomo, the sources said.
That way, Cuomo’s potentially damaging additional accusations about Zucker would be kept from the public, these sources say.
There’s more to all of this than a sex scandal. Imagine that.
“Jeff cut a deal to say ‘I’ll leave, and you settle with Cuomo,’” a source told The Post. “He thought AT&T would fight a lawsuit and it would go public otherwise.” If Cuomo filed his lawsuit and AT&T fought it, then potentially damaging information about Zucker could come out, too, the sources said.
Information that could be more damaging than an affair with a staffer. The possibilities are endless.
