Former president of the NAACP, Ben Jealous called out what he sees as CNN’s bias toward one presidential candidate.
Jealous, an avid supporter of Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders, said CNN’s coverage of the race “has a certain tilt” when it comes to covering rival Democrat candidate Hillary Clinton.
Speaking with Jordan Chariton of The Young Turks, Jealous noted CNN’s undisclosed conflict of interest.
“CNN is a perplexing predicament for us because when you look at whose employees have donated the most to her campaign,” Jealous said, Time Warner comes out as number seven.
Time Warner, Inc. owns the Turner Broadcasting System of which CNN News Group is a part. Jealous called out the connection between the Turner shareholders and the number of employees who have donated to Clinton’s campaign, crediting it for the “spin” he sees in coverage of the Democrats in the race.
“That’s been frustrating to us,” Jealous said. “The spin seems to reflect that sometimes. They have great people on there, folks who are honest and hardworking. But there’s a certain tilt to the overall network that leaves a lot to be desired.”
