CNN Drops Eygpt Coverage For More Zimmerman Coverage Running Out Of Juice

CNN boss Jeff Zucker said Friday that criticism that his network underplayed the Egyptian coup in favor of the George Zimmerman murder trial is “a bunch of bunk.”
CNN’s priorities in giving extensive coverage to the trial of the Florida neighborhood watch volunteer on trial for murder were questioned last week during the height of political unrest in Egypt, a story that CNN International was spending virtually all of its time on. CNN’s coverage continued Friday with the Zimmerman defense team’s closing arguments.
Sid Bedingfield, a former CNN executive who now teaches journalism at the University of South Carolina, wrote online that he worries that CNN’s Zimmerman coverage may mark a turning point in a move toward tabloid TV.
