‘The Future of Media Has No Women?’: Twitter Expresses Outrage Over All-Male CNN PR Photo
Earlier today, CNN producer Josiah Daniel Ryan tweeted out the cover of The Hollywood Reporter, which featured CNN president Jeff Zucker surrounded by a few of the networks personalities.
In his tweet, Ryan noted that the photo represented the “future of media” and that he was proud to be part of the team.
The future of media looks like this.

Well, considering the picture featured only males — of which four of five are white — it didn’t take long before there was quite a bit of outrage expressed by the left on Twitter.

The future of media is entirely male and includes a CEO who keeps a framed Trump tweet on his wall. https://t.co/MbPuiSXrq5

The future of media is men, and the new president of the United States has bragged about assaulting women. Happy women’s history month 2k17!
