Think all the nasty, dismissive, derisive, sharp, snarky criticism of CNN for over-covering the story of missing Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 has unsettled the network’s brass? Not openly, to judge from a remark that CNN Worldwide President Jeff Zucker made to Mashable: “I think that if people want to be critical of CNN for over-covering a story, that’s totally fine with us. Clearly, the audience has spoken and said that what CNN did was correct.” As we noted yesterday, the fact that CNN commissioned a poll on people’s views of MH370 — a poll that postdated a great deal of the anti-CNN sentiment — constituted a clear signal that the network didn’t give a whit what the commentariat was saying. As a matter of general practice, that’s a good way to go.
