Time's Joe Klein: CNN is an Embarrassment to Our Profession

This morning, FTVLive told you that a website that was devoted to covering CNN had shutdown because Jeff Zucker has chosen a direction for the network that the blog simply isn't interested in documenting.

Now you can add Time magazine's Joe Klein to the list of people turning away from CNN.

Klein says he used to watch CNN, but he doesn't anymore thanks to Zucker and the direction of the network. 

“It is such an embarrassment to our profession that CNN has gone in the toilet the way it has,” Klein said in a sit down with Jeff Greenfield over the weekend.

So where does he turn now? Fox News.

“I miss being able to watch a straight newscast, and it turns out the only place you can go to get one at 6 o’clock at night is Fox,” Klein said.
