Jason Kilar is the CEO of Time Warner, the parent company of CNN.
He is criticized because of his words. He said that the pandemic is the liberal network’s cash cow on Thursday.
At a news conference, Kilar said:

“It turns out the pandemic is a pretty big part of the news cycle, and that’s not going away anytime soon,”
According to him, the analysis of the ratings and the performance shows that the job is going well. From this, Kilar concluded that the pandemic and how the media inform people about it are good for ratings.
The declaration of Joe Flint was compared to Les Moonves’s in 2016. He then said that maybe Trump isn’t good for America, but it is excellent for CBS.
Kilar realized he was damaged from his bullet and responded to Flint directly.
"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.

Also, Kilar apologized.
“I am sorry for the sentence and for uttering it. … Thx for highlighting it and holding me accountable.”
Happy to. I am sorry for the sentence and for uttering it. My apologies. Thx for highlighting it and holding me accountable.

If you think better, Kilar is telling the truth.
All the events concerning the public health crisis and the covid-19 pandemic attracts viewers. The TV networks benefit from that, no matter that they represent themselves as ‘’noble companies.’’
More viewers bring higher advertisement prices!
Maybe Kilar is guilty of saying those words to the public, but he is right.
In 2019, the ratings had dropped 26% compared to the same time in 2018. But, now, the ratings are higher as they haven’t been since September 11.2001.
We are asking what was CNN doing during the past year because they had the opportunity to inform the people?
They were engaged in irresponsible, hyperbolic, and false reporting to bring Trump and his team down. They helped Biden and his team win the office by saying lies and false promises.
Furthermore, CNN damaged Trump by saying that he was irresponsible in handling the covid-19 pandemic and that Andrew Cuomo was an example of excellent leadership.
Here we are now; their perfect leader Cuomo is a disgraced and defeated man accused of sexual harassment, and he sentenced older people to death in the nursing homes and even lied about that!
Wait, so I was supposed to know — almost a year ago — about these allegations against Cuomo that have just come out?
I know this website likes dunking but wow…. https://t.co/7ZMDvp30Ah

His brother, a network host, is Chris Cuomo. He announced that he could not cover his brother for all the crimes he committed.
Impossible position for Chris Cuomo.
Says he can’t cover Gov scandal because it’s his brother. But covered him extensively when the media considered him a COVID hero.

CNN constantly criticized Trump. They haven’t published a single story where Trump is the upbeat guy.
But even the CNN hosts are aware that Biden is making a quagmire of the pandemic.
Also, during the whole pandemic situation, CNN is saying that this is a grave challenge, and people are constantly exposed to risk. They degraded the Trump administration and claimed that they are responsible for the situation because of the non-mask-wearing supporters.
