Trump meets top media execs, anchors

Meeting

wolf-blitzer-trumpIn a meeting organised by Conway, Trump meets executives and on-air anchors from CNN, Fox News, NBC, ABC and CBS, the five largest television networks in the United States, for an off-the-record discussion. ABC News is represented by president Goldston and anchors Stephanopoulos, Muir, and Raddatz; NBC by anchors Holt and Todd, along with president Turness; CBS by Rose, King, O’Donnell and Dickerson; CNN by president Zucker, with anchors Blitzer and Burnett; Fox News by several executives including co-presidents Shine and Abernathy; and MSNBC by president Griffin. Transition officials wouldn’t discuss the purpose for the meeting. Sources:

It was like a f-cking firing squad. Trump started with [CNN chief] Jeff Zucker and said ‘I hate your network, everyone at CNN is a liar and you should be ashamed. The meeting was a total disaster. The TV execs and anchors went in there thinking they would be discussing the access they would get to the Trump administration, but instead they got a Trump-style dressing down…Trump didn’t say [NBC reporter] Katy Tur by name, but talked about an NBC female correspondent who got it wrong, then he referred to a horrible network correspondent who cried when Hillary lost who hosted a debate – which was Martha Raddatz who was also in the room.

Conway:

Excellent meetings with the top executives of the major networks. Pretty unprecedented meeting we put together in two days.

O Magazine interview

Interview

McGreevey speaks to King in an interview for O Magazine about her husband cheating on her with another man.

I always thought of myself as a good judge of character people have always told me that but with Jim I was just totally off. He was charming, he was charismatic, he was always trying to help people. That’s the man I fell in love with. Actually, one person did say something to me once, but I was like, What are you talking about? Because there were also rumors that the two of us weren’t living in the same house. False things were always being said. That’s the nature of politics. So when one person mentioned the gay rumor, I dismissed it. That wasn’t the Jim I knew.
