A couple of weeks ago, former CNN President Jeff Zucker resigned from his position with the network after revealing a consensual relationship with fellow executive Allison Gollust. 

There were some questions about why only Zucker was resigning and why Gollust didn’t join him. However, two weeks since the news broke, Gollust has resigned from her chief marketing officer position. 

WarnerMedia CEO Jason Kilar released a memo in which “the investigation found violations of Company policies, including CNN’s News Standards and Practices, by Jeff Zucker, Allison Gollust, and Chris Cuomo.”

“Based on interviews of more than 40 individuals and a review of over 100,000 texts and emails, the investigation found violations of company policies, including CNN’s news standards and practices,” the memo stated.

“I realize this news is troubling, disappointing, and frankly painful to read. These are valid feelings that many of you have. We have the highest standards of journalistic integrity, and those rules must apply to everyone equally.”

Gollust didn’t remain quiet as she released her statement accusing the network of trying to change the narrative of the situation. Furthermore, she states that executives at WarnerMedia had “assured” her she could notify staffers of her leaving on Tuesday night. 

“Unfortunately, they jumped the gun, breaking their promise,” she wrote. “I am sorry you had to learn this from someone other than me.” 

“WarnerMedia’s statement tonight is an attempt to retaliate against me and change the media narrative in the wake of their disastrous handling of the last two weeks.”

Fox News reporter Bill Melugin left his regular assignment covering the crisis at the Southern Border to cover a mass school shooting that left at least 21 people dead in Uvalde, Texas on Tuesday.  

Melugin spent hours appearing on the network’s primetime lineup reporting from the scene. The correspondent addressed rumors that the shooting at the school began as a border patrol chase. 

“We’re not hearing anything about a chase, there were rumors flying around that this was a sort of border patrol chase, I have not heard anything of the sort, I have not confirmed any of that information and have no reason to believe any of those rumors are credible at this moment,” he said. 

Melugin described what he saw at Robb Elementary School and the scene inside the school. 

” We went in, there is a room full of parents, a private room where they are waiting on information for their loved ones, some are walking the hallways, some are crying, hugging, emotional, some have been given horrible news,” Melugin said. “There is a room full of parents necessary there waiting on information.”

A shooter in Uvalde, Texas, walked into a school and opened fire, killing 21 people, including 19 children and two adults, on Tuesday. CNN host Wolf Blitzer reacted to the tragedy in “The Situation Room.”

According to a transcript published on Breitbart, Blitzer criticized the availability of what he termed “weapons of mass destruction.”

“Every time there is an incident like this, you hear about efforts to deal with mentally unstable people who can certainly go out there and buy a weapon of mass destruction, go out there and buy a gun or rifle or some sort of assault-type weapon and go to there and eventually start killing wonderful, wonderful, people.”

According to the Associated Press, Tuesday’s attack on Robb Elementary School was the deadliest shooting at a U.S. school since a gunman killed 20 children and six adults at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newton, Connecticut.

The head of Fox News is speaking out about the narrative that his network is too divisive. CEO Lachlan Murdoch told Axios that the network gets a lot of heat because of its perpetual top-ranked status. 

“I think when you’re in the news business, and you’re number one … you get a lot of heat and it just comes with the territory,” said Murdoch. 

Left-leaning pundits have been strongly opposed to Tucker Carlson’s comments about illegal immigration. The New York Times  published a report explaining how Carlson had “stoked white fear to conquer cable news.” 

New York Senator Chuck Schumer recently sent a letter to Fox News demanding the network fire Carlson for sharing what some are calling “great replacement theory.” That letter was sent days after a white shooter walked into a Buffalo grocery store and murdered 10 people. 

“You’ve got to kind of realize what it is and how some of it is a very organized kind of attack — very coordinated — but it is what it is,” Murdoch said. 

Following the Buffalo shooting incident, protestors descended upon Fox News headquarters in New York City to protest the network’s primetime hosts.
