According to the report, Zucker plans to attract “viewers who are watching places like Discovery and History and Nat Geo and A&E” in their prime time slots. So less like the news of the day and more like Duck Dynasty, Honey Boo Boo, and Storage Wars, I guess. Cable news is about to get even dumber. I can hardly wait…
