Igniting Ferguson: CNN Is Run Like a James Bond Villain’s In Charge

CNN chief Jeff Zucker reminds me of a James Bond villain, specifically Elliot Carver, the media megalomaniac in “Tomorrow Never Dies” played so memorably by Jonathan Pryce.

My mother, grandparents, sister and 5-year-old baby brother were sent to the ovens. I was 15 years old. Today, I own America’s premier hand-tailored menswear company and make suits for everyone from President Obama to Jimmy Fallon to James Spader’s character Raymond “Red” Reddington on NBC’s “The Blacklist.” Everything I am or will ever be I owe to God and the soldiers, sailors, airmen and
