If you want further proof (as if it's needed) that Jeff Zucker is taking the news out of the cable news network, then look no further than the leaked emails coming out of Sony.
One of the hacked emails shows that the CNN boss approached Sony about producing a game show for CNN.
A game show?!
According to an email sent to Sony Pictures Television President Steve Mosko on November 6, 2014:
“Steve I met with Zucker this week and he asked if we would consider doing political jeopardy show for cnn. I’m guessing it’s a non starter but wanted to ask you how to respond to him,” read the e-mail from John Weiser, the president of Sony Pictures Television Distribution.
There was no indication in other emails of how the talks between CNN and Sony are progressing.
Several CNN anchors have competed on Alex Trebek’s Jeopardy in the past, including Anderson Cooper and Wolf Blitzer, who did not fair so well (see picture).
