Zucker: CNBC Won’t Repeat CNN “Mistake”

In today’s Hollywood Reporter, NBCU’s Jeff Zucker confidently reveals how CNBC will handle the arrival of Fox Business Network: “We’re not going to make the same mistake CNN made when Fox News Chanel came along a decade ago. We’ll be strong and aggressive and continue to prove what makes CNBC by far the leading financial news broadcaster in the world.”

Zucker continues, “I think there is a degree of irony that the company that broke the story that Rupert Murdoch wanted to buy Dow Jones was CNBC.”

>Update: a Fox News insider adds: “We find there is a degree of irony that on the day Jeff’s self-serving comments are printed comes the announcement that News Corp. has secured enough votes to acquire The Wall Street Journal.”
