Ever since CNN aired its first news program way back in 1980, they have worked on crafting a specific agenda.
Over the years, viewers have seen the network’s increasingly radical shift to the left, and many reject CNN’s claim that they’re “the most trusted name in news.”
Their clear liberal bias makes them incapable of being impartial.
This hasn’t stopped CNN from trying to claim the moral high ground on many issues. They’ve also spent countless hours of air time going after their rival network Fox News, reporting endlessly on the string of lawsuits Fox News is facing from former employees.
But CNN is now learning that it’s better to investigate yourself before throwing stones at others. “The most trusted name in news” is now facing its own lawsuit alleging the company mistreated black employees.
From The Hollywood Reporter:
Unlike the lawsuit against Fox News, the one against CNN and sister companies is much broader, claiming among other things that African-Americans receive lower performance ratings in evaluations, that there are dramatic differences in pay between similarly situated employees of different races and that the promotion of African-American employees is blocked by a “glass ceiling.”
The complaint (see here) cites hiring and advancement statistics while alleging that African-American employees have endured slurs from superiors, including “It’s hard to manage black people” and “Who would be worth more: black slaves from times past, or new slaves?”
The plaintiffs in this case include both past and current CNN Atlanta employees. In total, 175 people have come forward claiming that CNN gives African Americans unfair treatment.
It’s truly poetic justice seeing CNN get a taste of its own medicine. For years they have preached division. They have told minorities and women that they are less than, that they are oppressed and that all blame lies at the feet of white people and Republicans.
The leftist push for victimization has come home to roost.
Interestingly, there has been little mention of this lawsuit outside of a few news outlets.
CNN likely hasn’t reported on it because this is real news, and they prefer to report fake news.
