He should stick to making "Airplane!" movies.

Zucker should be in jail for life.

How about no? Does that work for you? I'd support a ban on any billionaire holding elected office. You don't become a billionaire by being a good person, and you've got more power than you know what to do with already. You don't need more, and you shouldn't have more.

Eww. CNN needs to be broken up into smaller local news. Fox and MSNBC too.

Concentrated media throttles robust news.

Go zuck yourself, Jeff.

Eh. NYC Mayor has surprisingly little power. And truthfully it'd be kind of a step down, power wise from being a billionaire. (As is almost everything, really).

Uhh, Jeff Zucker is not a billionaire. He is an asshole and shouldn't be mayor, but he's not that rich.

FTFY. 100% taxes on above, let's just say $700mil as a random cap. And even that is pushing it.

A billion dollars is more money, and therefore power, than any individual can earn honestly, or handle.

I think AOC should think about stepping down from being congresscritter and run the city for a few terms.

Honestly, I'd take Bloomberg back. At least he was effective. De Blasio sucks on every conceivable level.

This is the guy who farked up two Tonight Show transitions.

STILL don't understand why Jeff Zucker is a TV executive instead of a farking nightclub restroom attendant after his Conan/Leno debacle at NBC.

*checks notes*
...oh, CNN hired him?  Oh, okay.  I simultaneously get it and don't get it.

So you are going to break up a single signal that is delivered by satellite to cable stations into individual differentiated local broadcasts?

I don't think you have a firm grasp on what you are talking about.

...and the morans will vote him just like Bloomy. The lunacy of Americans never ceases to amaze.
