CNN Flat-Out Denies Jon Klein Scolding of John King’s Show

It’s a classic ‘he said she said’.

Today the Washington Examiner is reporting that CNN President Jon Klein dressed down John King’s new program, John King, USA, by way of Senior Executive Producer Sam Feist and Executive Producer Michelle Jaconi.

But CNN says it isn’t so, and Spokeswoman Edie Emery reiterated the network’s denial to FishbowlDC today.
“That conversation didn’t happen — but like all CNN programs, ‘John King USA’ will continue to evolve. John is one of the best political reporters, and we have confidence in the show and its journalism,” Emery told the Examiner.

The story was written by the Examiner‘s Yeas & Nays Columnist Tara Palmeri, a former CNN news assistant who spent just a few months shy of a year at the network.
