Ex-CNN host Larry King on Wednesday mocked his former employer declaring that the network “stopped doing news a long time ago” by opting to primarily cover President Trump.
King, who hosted a primetime show on CNN for 25 years through 2010, told RT America that the network originally covered Trump “as a character” when he was running for president.
“CNN stopped doing news a long time ago,” King said while be interviewed by another former CNN anchor, Rick Sanchez. “They do Trump. Fox is Trump TV and MSNBC is anti-Trump all the time.”
“You don’t see a story — there was vicious winds and storms in the Northeast the other day — not covered on any of the three cable networks, not covered,” King noted. “So when CNN started covering Trump — they were the first — they covered every speech he made and then they made Trump the story. So, Trump is the story in America.”
