[Ed. – There is something seriously wrong with CNN.]
The White House offered Wolf Blitzer an exclusive interview with Pence at the World Holocaust Forum next Thursday, and the “Situation Room” host enthusiastically agreed. But CNN boss Jeff Zucker then banned Blitzer from leaving the country because of the President Trump impeachment trial in the Senate.
Blitzer’s paternal grandparents were killed in the Holocaust and his parents were survivors. He said in an emotional 2018 interview, “My grandparents were murdered at Auschwitz. My dad survived, but two of his brothers and two of his sisters were killed. They weren’t separated to go to another facility. They were separated to die.”
A CNN source said: “Wolf really wanted to do the Pence interview personally. He cares deeply because of his family background, which is why Wolf was offered it by the White House. But Zucker stepped in and said Wolf isn’t going anywhere because the network will be ‘all impeachment, all of the time’ next week. CNN’s anti-Trump bias is so intense, they can’t even broadcast a sympathetic interview for Holocaust remembrance.”
