CNN’s Don Lemon told Sen. Cory Booker ‘nice job’ before cutting to commercial during a town hall and it was all caught on a hot mic.
Don Lemon apparently didn’t intend the complement to be heard by the public but a nearby live microphone amplified the volume of his words.
This crosses a line because Don Lemon is a news anchor. Which is different from an opinion show like Hannity. Why is Don Lemon still on the air? Has CNN no standards at all? Fire him now!
CNN anchor Don Lemon on Wednesday congratulated Sen. Cory Booker on his performance during the cable news network’s televised town hall with the White House hopeful.
“We’re going to be right back with more from CNN’s Democratic presidential town hall with Sen. Cory Booker live from Orangeburg, S.C., so make sure you stay with us,” Lemon said of the New Jersey Democrat ahead of a commercial break.
“Nice job, nice job,” the host could be heard saying before the start of the first advertisement.
CNN’s town hall on Wednesday with Booker was generally praised by social media pundits for the range of issues discussed during the hourlong broadcast, from the second-term senator’s relationship with actress Rosario Dawson to his positions on reparations and the Electoral College. More
There has always been a Liberal lean to MSM but their amazing Trump Derangement Syndrome has caused them to go completely off the rail.
It’s all out in plain sight now. The MSM doesn’t even try to hide its support for the Democrats anymore. The President is absolutely right they are fake news. Nothing but propaganda outlets openly carrying the water for the DNC.
