Way to Show Integrity, CNN

A number of different kinds of people work on the air at CNN.  Some are reporters, some are hosts, some are sort of entertainers (The Curmudgeon’s talking about you, Anderson Cooper).

And some are commentators:  they’re hired to have opinions and to express them.

Last week one of those commentators, a fellow named Marc Lamont Hill, attended a public event and called for

…a free Palestine from the river to the sea.

Well, CNN didn’t like that opinion.

So it fired him.

CNN fired a guy it hired to express his opinions because it didn’t like one of those opinions.

Way to be fearless, CNN.
