Former CNN Anchor Blast Network For Giving Platform To Racist

Former CNN Anchor Blast Network For Giving Platform To Racist

Soledad O’Brien was an anchor at CNN for 10 years before leaving in 2013, and now the former host is going after her former employer on Twitter.

O'Brien said the network gives a platform for racists and white supremacists in order to boost their ratings.

She was responding to a progressive writer who said, “their anchors want to have their cake and eat it too. They want credit for calling out abhorrent behavior but when they enable the same behavior they insist they’re just ‘hearing them out."

O’Brien wrote, “This exactly -- they give a platform -- and their credibility -- to racist/white supremacists/all in the name of ‘hearing them out’ (which is a ratings ploy btw)”

@owillis
my major problem with how cnn operates is their anchors/hosts want to have their cake and eat it too. they want credit for calling out abhorrent behavior but when they enable the same behavior they insist theyre just "hearing them out."
