Report: Tabloid TV Editor To Be Named NBC News President
The floundering and willfully dishonest enterprise that is NBC News has apparently found its replacement for the disgraced Steve Capus. According to The New York Times, Deborah Turness, the current head of Britains ITV News, will become the next president of NBC News and the first woman to run a television news division.
For the last decade or so, ITV has increasingly become a tabloid-style television outlet, broadcasting soap operas and reality television.
Since NBC News right now reflects nothing close to reality, Turness might be just what that division needs.
