Hannity Fires Back After Jeff Zucker Scorches Fox News: There’s a ‘Reason Crowds Chant CNN Sucks’

Earlier today at the Financial Times Future of News event, CNN president Jeff Zucker absolutely tore into rival Fox News, calling the cable news network a “pure propaganda machine” that is “really state-run TV.” He further compared the channel to Russian propaganda outlets.

It didn’t take long for Fox’s biggest star to fire back.

As you can see in the tweet above, conservative host Sean Hannity mocked CNN for its recent coverage of the Stormy Daniels-Donald Trump scandal while calling CNN “Fake News,” Hannity’s favorite insult for the cable news outlet that he cribbed from the president.

Hannity also noted that “there is a reason crowds chant “CNN Sucks”,” likely referencing the audience reaction at Trump rallies whenever the president mentions the channel.

We’re going to go out on a limb and state that Hannity will have more to say about Zucker’s comments during his primetime program this evening…
