CNN President Jeff Zucker Cracks Sexual Joke About Female Anchor, Shocks Audience

During a recent awards ceremony, CNN’s president Jeff Zucker elicited uncomfortable groans from the crowd, following remarks made to female anchor Alisyn Camerota.

“I was gonna say that I love waking up with you every morning, but I want to say that I love waking up to you every morning,” said Zucker, prompting reactions from those in attendance.

When asked, Camerota said she did not take issue with Zucker’s comment, stating, “I hear it a couple of times a week from people in the grocery store.”

Social media, however, felt differently, and pointed out that had a conservative made such remarks, the reaction coming from the press would almost certainly have been much different.
