Black Journalists Slam CNN for Lack of Black Employees


A group of black journalists are demanding an “audit” of CNN for its lack of black employees.

Even though CNN pushes a far-left ideology, CNN seems to think that it does not have to live up to its so-called principles, the ones they want to force on everyone else.

Well, the National Association of Black Journalists is not so ready to let CNN off the hook.

The NABJ recently accused CNN of not having enough blacks and has placed the cable news network on its “special media monitoring list.”

The group adds that it “will perform further research and an analysis of CNN’s diversity, inclusion and equity practices,” then “publicly report on identified deficiencies in hiring a diverse workforce in news decision-making capacities.”

In its statement, the NABJ said its members are “concerned about the lack of black representation within the ranks of CNN’s executive news managers and direct reports to CNN President Jeff Zucker.”

The NABJ added that it is “calling for a civil rights audit that examines the company’s hiring, promotion and compensation practices.”

CNN has disputed the group’s claims but has not made any move to prove the opposite of the group’s claims that it has few black employees.

Still, CNN claims it is working with the NABJ to resolve their differences.

According to The Hill, CNN said:

“For months, we have been working with NABJ to schedule a meeting because the relationship between CNN and NABJ is very important to us. As we have told them many times, we look forward to a thoughtful discussion about how both of our organizations can continue to work together. Unfortunately, the significant and reckless damage that Roland Martin did to CNN while partnering with us during a 2016 Democratic Town Hall has made any meeting that includes him untenable,” CNN said in the statement.

However, CNN had an accusation of its own about NABJ’s Vice President-Digital Roland Martin, who the network says lacks “integrity.”

“Mr. Martin displayed an unprecedented and egregious lack of journalistic ethics and integrity by leaking questions prior to the town hall. As a result, we have told NABJ that CNN will not participate in any meeting that includes him. We have made it abundantly clear that we would be more than happy to sit down with the rest of their leadership team as soon as possible, and that offer still stands,” the network added.

Looks like they have a ways to go to be in agreement.
