Manka Bros. Would Like To Offer Jeff Zucker A Job

| | Comments (6) | TrackBacks (0)
jeff_zucker_5.jpgI have sold my Comcast stock. 

Frankly, I am stunned at today's announcement that Jeff Zucker has been fired by Steve Burke at ComcastLittle Stevie Burke (who was a Manka Bros. intern years ago in our Publishing Group) has some balls on him.  He's not even Jeff Zucker's boss yet and he pulled the trigger on the firing. 

My great old friend Brian Roberts doesn't know what a treasure he has lost today.  It's a crazy world when someone like Jeff Zucker doesn't have a media empire to run.  I would call Brian on Jeff's behalf to urge him to overrule Steve Burke, but I'm just too busy. 

Well, JZ, even though Comcast Universal (which will still be smaller than Manka Bros. Studios - The World's Largest Media Company) doesn't have a place for you after the merger, Manka Bros. DOES have a place for you.  I would like to offer you a job anywhere you want in the organization.  Check our Senior Management roster and pick the job you would like. 

jeff_zucker_in_sweater_2.jpgManka Bros. has so underperformed this year, nearly every job is up for grabs (with the exception of Lloyd Grohl).  Just give me a 24 hour heads up and I'll fire whomever you wish to replace.

Though based on your track record, personally, I would prefer you stayed away from our television group - but, really, beggars can't be choosers, right?

I know you're hurting right now and probably inconsolable and crying but just remember all the good times we've had from Herb Allen's Sun Valley Retreat, to the lobster boil with Peter Chernin - lots of great times. 

The party would continue and never stop if you joined our organization.  The whole thing just breaks my heart and I only wish to God Manka Bros. would have acquired NBC Universal when we had the chance just so that you would still have a job.

I know everyone thinks you're an asshole (welcome to the club!) but your accomplishments at NBC cannot be ignored - from the hiring of Ben Silverman to the way you handled the Jay Leno/Conan situation - NBC is in great shape and will only get stronger after you leave.  You can hold your head up!

So, think about it.  Take a couple of years, climb a mountain, backpack around Europe.  Hopefully, at least, GE will cash out your vacation time.  If not, and you need a low interest loan until you get back on your feet, just let me know.

I don’t know what I’ll miss more: his ineptitude or his arrogance… He single-handedly ran the most powerful network into the ground, and was promoted for it.

Not too many people can claim to have ruined an entire TV network let alone the size of NBC, but Jeff Zucker - you did it buddy.

Why is GE stock going up???? Gained bank holding status=>borrowed billions @ nearly zero % from the Fed==>avoided paying Fed Tax in 2009 and probably wont pay Fed Taxes in 2010. What a Joke....but bright side we all will see how much was borrowed in 2011 when the fed audit is complete. Good Times!!!

What a great day for us NBCU employees! Perhaps NBC can find its way back to the top and we employees can be proud of our jobs once more. I’m so happy!

He's ur problem now Manka bros.

Bob Forsyth said:

Jeff Zucker was awful. Not only did he run network programming into the ground with political-agenda programming, he is also responsible for the fiasco otherwise known as MSNBC too.

Good call, Comcast and good riddance.
