    Gulf War

    The first Persian Gulf War in 1991 was a watershed event for CNN that catapulted the channel past the "Big Three" American networks for the first time in its history, largely due to an unprecedented, historical scoop: CNN was the only news outlet with the ability to communicate from inside Iraq during the initial hours of the Coalition bombing campaign, with live reports from the al-Rashid Hotel in Baghdad by reporters Bernard Shaw, John Holliman and Peter Arnett.File:CNN Gulf War nightscope January 1991.jpg|thumb|right|Operation Desert Storm as captured live on a CNN night visionnight visionThe moment when bombing began was announced on CNN by Shaw on January 16, 1991, as follows:WEB,weblink The Gulf War and its Consequences,, 1996, October 12, 2013, Unable to immediately broadcast live pictures from Baghdad, CNN's coverage of the initial hours of the Gulf War had the dramatic feel of a radio broadcast – and was compared to legendary CBS news anchor Edward R.

    Trump presidency, AT&T ownership

    {{outdated section|date=June 2019}}The presidency of Donald Trump has led to many prominent controversies involving CNN. The network was accused by critics of giving disproportionate amounts of coverage to Donald Trump and Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton. CNN president Jeff Zucker defended CNN against the criticism, commenting that out of the Republican candidates, Trump was the most willing to give on-air interviews. Trump commented upon the allegations during his speech at the 2017 Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), jokingly referring to CNN as the "Clinton News Network".NEWS,weblink Trump Talks About Enemies, Again, at CPAC, Sorkin, Amy Davidson, 2017-02-24, The New Yorker, 2017-10-27, 0028-792X, WEB,weblink Here's why CNN Became a Lightning Rod for Accusations of Media Bias, December 3, 2016, Fortune, April 21, 2017, File:Jeff Zucker - David Shankbone 2010.jpg|thumb|200px|CNN Worldwide President Jeff ZuckerJeff ZuckerIn January 2017, CNN reported that Trump had been briefed on a classified dossier which detailed compromising personal and financial information allegedly obtained by the Russian government.

The clip was considered to be a further expression of his opinions regarding the network's quality of coverage. Several media columnists and Democratic politicians condemned the retweeted video, concerned that its substance—given the tone of some of Trump's criticism of mainstream media outlets for what he deems as unfavorable coverage of him and his presidency—could encourage some of his extreme right-wing supporters to commit violence against journalists from outlets outside of the conservative media spectrum.NEWS, How CNN found the Reddit user behind the Trump wrestling GIF,weblink July 4, 2017, July 5, 2017, CNN Politics, NEWS,weblink Trump Tweets a Video of Him Wrestling ‘CNN’ to the Ground, Grynbaum, Michael M., 2017-07-02, The New York Times, 2017-10-28, 0362-4331, Later that month, a group of Democratic United States Senators, led by Amy Klobuchar, issued a request for information over allegations that the Trump administration was planning to use CNN as "leverage for political gain" in the process of clearing the proposed acquisition of its parent company Time Warner by AT&T—a purchase which was first announced in October 2016.NEWS,weblink AT&T agrees to buy Time Warner for more than $80B, Yu, Roger, USA Today, October 22, 2016, October 22, 2016, WEB,weblink AT&T Reaches Deal to Buy Time Warner for $86 Billion, Gryta, Thomas, Hagey, Keach, Cimmiluca, Dana, The Wall Street Journal, October 22, 2016, October 22, 2016, The Daily Caller reported that, in particular, the administration was seeking the removal of Jeff Zucker as CNN president.
