Jared Kushner comes out of the shadows to issue a brutal statement about CNN

Jared Kushner came out firing at a Time Warner executive over CNN’s coverage of the 2016 presidential election when the two met earlier this year.

President Donald Trump’s son-in-law and advisor told Gary Ginsberg, the Executive Vice President of Corporate Marketing and Communications at Time Warner Inc., CNN’s parent company, that the cable news giant should fire 20 percent of its staff because of its coverage of the election, the Wall Street Journal reported.

According to a White House official, Kushner meant the comment in jest and was simply making a point about, what he believed, was the network’s shoddy coverage. But Ginsberg, who worked as an attorney in former President Bill Clinton’s White House, did not take the comment lightly, according to the Journal.

In February, the Journal reported that Kushner met with Ginsburg at the White House to discuss what he believed was CNN personalities unfairly attacking President Donald Trump and his administration, as well as inaccurate coverage.

This came after reports that the Justice Department asked that CNN be sold as a condition of approving a merger between AT&T and Time Warner, raising the question of whether the administration’s feelings about the network have had any influence on the merger deal.
