Leslie Moonves on Donald Trump: “It May Not Be Good for America, but It’s Good for CBS”
“Most of the ads are not about issues. They’re like the debates,” the CBS CEO said.
Leslie Moonves can appreciate a Donald Trump candidacy.
Not that the CBS executive chairman and CEO might vote for the Republican presidential frontrunner, but he likes the ad money Trump and his competitors are bringing to the network.
“It may not be good for America, but it’s good for CBS,” he said of the presidential race.
Moonves called the campaign for president a “circus” full of mudslinging, and he hopes it continues.
“Most of the ads are not about issues. They’re like the debates,” he said.
“Bring it on, Donald,” said Moonves.
“Donald’s place in this election is a good thing,” he said Monday at the Morgan Stanley Technology, Media & Telecom Conference in San Francisco.
“There’s a lot of money in the marketplace,” the exec said of political advertising so far this presidential season.
