Rupert Murdoch: CNN Has ‘Sharpened Up’ Since Zucker

News Corp. CEO Rupert Murdoch sits down with “WSJ Live” to talk about the state of media. Along the way, cable news comes up in the conversation. When asked about Fox News Channel’s ratings dominance compared to its competition, Murdoch said that he was impressed by some of the recent goings-on at CNN.

“I don’t think they are bad, you are seeing big changes going on at CNN now, they have a new head of it [Jeff Zucker], they are popularizing it, if you like,” Murdoch said. “They are using helicopters, running around being much more pop, if you will. I won’t say that they are politically different than what they have always been, but they have sharpened up in the last couple of months.”
