Former CNN anchor Brooke Baldwin is now accusing her former employer of stunning hypocrisy when it comes to their coverage of school shootings.
As The Daily Wire reports:
Former CNN anchor Brooke Baldwin slammed her former employer in an op-ed published this week at The Atlantic, claiming that they blew off a live interview from a teacher at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in the wake of the tragedy that occurred at the school in 2018 so that the far-Left network could cover Trump news.
“One of my producers interrupted our broadcast from Florida and spoke into my earpiece. News was breaking about President Donald Trump and the FBI. My producer assured me that we’d return to coverage in Parkland, but that right then—I’ll never forget it—’we have to break away to go live to Washington’,” Baldwin wrote. “But. But. But. Fourteen students were dead. I stood there dumbfounded. A teacher from the school was just out of camera range, waiting to join me for a five-minute live interview. I used the pause in coverage to tell her what was happening and told her that we’d get to her, that her story mattered. But I already knew then that they weren’t coming back to us.”
“Outside of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, I waited to reappear on my own show, furiously emailing my producers back at CNN headquarters to fight for more airtime on what was happening at Parkland: Come back to me. The teacher!” she continued. “Soon after, I got my marching orders: Come back to New York. I knew what that meant. We were done.”
Baldwin took a shot at the network on her way out the door last year by suggesting that the network was rife with sexism, saying that all the highest paid people there and all her bosses were men. “So I’ve been surrounded by a lot of men,” she said. “I was surrounded by a lot of dudes.”
Baldwin has been known in the past for her consistent anti-second amendment agenda.
