CNN Worldwide president Jeff Zucker pulled no punches when asked about one of his cable news competitors today.

Zucker called Fox News “State run TV” and “worse than TASS,” which is Russia’s state-run news agency. Zucker made the comments at the FT’s Future of News event today in New York City.

Echoing the comments of former Fox News military analyst Ralph Peters, Zucker called Fox News a “propaganda machine.”

“I think Ralph Peters spoke the truth,” Zucker added.

We’ve reached out to Fox for comment and will update when we hear back.

Later at the conference, former White House senior adviser Steve Bannon said it was CNN that was a “propaganda outfit… every night it’s hate Trump.”
