Tell CNN to Withdraw Its Job Offer to Corey Lewandowski
Unreal. CNN just hired Donald Trump’s former campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, as a paid commentator.
Lewandowski oversaw a campaign rooted in racism, misogyny and other forms of hate.
It’s appalling that a news network gave this man a job. This is the guy who:
- Assaulted a reporter who was trying to ask Trump a question1
- Oversaw a campaign that routinely blacklists reporters2
- Barricaded the press inside pens during Trump events
Networks like CNN are supposed to provide news and information — not give platforms to people who traffic in racism and try to keep journalists in the dark. Ratings are no reason to hire someone who ran a campaign that consistently violates press freedom and human decency.
Tell CNN to withdraw its job offer to Corey Lewandowski.
