CNN President Jeff Zucker made a joke about sleeping with one of his employees while accepting an award for excellence in journalism.

"I was gonna say that I love waking up with you every morning, but I want to say that I love waking up to you every morning," he said to emcee Alisyn Camerota, host of CNN’s “New Day,” while being honored at the Mirror Awards for leadership.

Camerota dismissed the remark as the "oldest joke in the book."

"It’s the oldest joke in the book made to morning show anchors, both men and women,” Camerota told The Daily Beast. "I hear it a couple of times a week from people in the grocery store.  That isn’t harassment, in my opinion, and I didn’t find it tone deaf, either.”

Zucker's joke came after New Yorker journalist Ronan Farrow accepted an award for his investigative reporting on former CBS head Les Moonves's history of alleged sexual misconduct.
