close tovideo Dershowitz Fluke Mueller effort

Harvard Law professor emeritus Alan Dershowitz said Sunday that CNN kept him out of the network due to its analysis of the Special Counsel, to Robert Mueller’s investigation, and claimed that the channel after booting him from appearing on air in favor of the non-performing lawyer, Michael Avenatti.

Dershowitz made the claims in an interview with Howard Kurtz to say on Fox News’ “Media Buzz” that he knew “for a fact” that CNN President Jeff Zucker mixed his performances, because Dershowitz views on the Russia-investigation.

“CNN, have me on all the time on Anderson Cooper, Cuomo, the of lemon, as an analyst, as a centrist analyst, they decided, no, no, it’s okay to extremely-Trump-Fans, because people do not use it simply as a stick figure,” Dershowitz said. “What you wanted was a centrist liberal, which went against their narrative.”


“Walter Cronkite could not get a job in the media today.”

CNN did not immediately respond to Fox News’ requests for comment.

Dershowitz added that if he were to grade the media on their coverage of the Mueller-probe, he would give you a “F.”

“Even with grade inflation, I think that the media only comes the terrible, horrible, for the most part. I think we will see a removal of the distinction between the editorial page and the news pages in some of the leading media in the country, and that is a shame. Walter Cronkite could not get a job in the media today,” he added.

In respect of sugar of the alleged order, Dershowitz said: “I can’t, and he asked [sugar] how is it that I said to myself, oh, no, no, no, you are, but since the summer I have never on a single occasion. I have on all the other networks. But what is clear is that you made a decision. She did not, that my kind of analysis.”

As it seemed, was really irritating to the Harvard law professor, that CNN chose often to use Avenatti – on Dershowitz for his analysis of the Müller-examination.


“You had a choice between a Harvard law professor, 50 years, it is right that a centrist liberal, and the credibility, or Michael Avenatti,” Dershowitz said. “And you brought Michael Avenatti.”

He added: “He was their go-to-guy. Every one of his predictions turned out to be wrong.”

Avenatti, who previously represented adult-film star Stormy Daniels in her feud with President Trump, recently, has become entangled in a series of legal quagmire of his own.


Earlier this month, he met with a 36-count indictment that accused him steal millions of dollars from clients, cheats on his taxes, lying to investigators and trying to hide money from debtors in insolvency proceedings.

Avenatti denied the charges, the advocate on Twitter and said that he had made powerful enemies, and would not guilty and fight the case. “I am looking forward to the whole truth, in contrast to a one-sided version to tweeted in addition to employment to me,” he said.


The new fees do not include a New York racketeering case claiming Avenatti called for millions to stay quiet about the claims that he planned to show about Nike-payment of high-school players.

Avenatti, 48, was arrested may 25. March in New York on the Nike free of charge. Prosecutors at the time announced that it was also to individual counts of wire and bank in southern California, where he has lived and practiced law.
