WHAT WE KNOW
(BREITBART) WarnerMedia CEO Jason Kilar apologized for saying coronavirus is “really good for [CNN] ratings” during the Morgan Stanley Technology, Media and Telecom Conference.
• WarnerMedia is the parent company of CNN.
• Kilar made his comments during his keynote address at Morgan Stanley’s Technology, Media and Telecom Conference
• Anyone that is paying attention to the news business through linear television, CNN is killing it,’ Kilar said at the conference
"It turns out the pandemic is a pretty big part of the news cycle and that’s not going away any time soon…It turns out it's really good for ratings." Jason Kilar on post-Trump CNN. Careful. That's awful close to Moonves line that Trump may be bad for U.S. but he's good for CBS.

I agree Joe. I would like nothing more than for this pandemic to be well behind us. I mean that with every fiber in my body. I wish I could go back and be more thoughtful about my communication.
