Tucker On CNN Leaks: 'Jeff Zucker is Dictating Every Detail of CNN's Programming'

Tucker Carlson shared footage from Project Veritas's undercover CNN tapes on Monday and said it appears that CNN president Jeff Zucker "is dictating every detail of CNN's programming and doing so with clearly partisan objectives in mind."

Partial transcript via Fox News:
Since Zucker took over CNN almost seven years ago, it often feels like every segment on that channel is choreographed for maximum political effect. If you have ever seen it, you know exactly what we're saying.

And it turns out, there's a reason it feels that way...

On Monday, the group Project Veritas released a series of audio and video recordings it says were made by someone within CNN. As of Monday night, we have not independently verified the tape. We did call over to CNN and asked them, but they did not respond. But we have no reason to believe any of this is fake.

The recordings indicate Zucker is dictating every detail of CNN's programming and doing so with clearly partisan objectives in mind. Here's one example. This is Zucker telling his minions how to shape the coverage of Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina:

Jeff Zucker, president of CNN: So I just want to say on the Lindsey Graham front, I know that there's a lot of people at CNN that are friendly with Lindsey Graham. Time to knock that off, and it's time to call him out. And, you know, I think he's under full-time contract now with Fox News. He's done his last 26 interviews in cable news with Fox, OK? And, so, it's time to seriously call out what's going on here.

Oh, got that? That's the standard. That's the news standard at the "news" network -- the Cable "News" Network. Lindsey Graham has appeared on Fox, so attack him.

And so CNN did just that, all while pretending the coverage was legitimate.
The tapes strongly suggest Zucker is setting the agenda for all their news anchors every morning and in real time during their programs.

Here's Project Veritas's videos so far:
