CNN suddenly finds themselves in some pretty hot water after years of false reporting and fear-mongering. The network became a boiling pot of hate this year during the 2016 Presidential Elections when they aimed their blatantly bias tirades against President Elect Donald Trump by repetitively claiming him to be a bigot, a racist, and a misogynist.
Even one of their black hosts, Van Jones, had the gall to call the election of Trump a “whitelash” against a black president, while a CNN contributor accused Trump of “a lack of tolerance for other people.”
You can imagine our surprise when suddenly former and current black employees filed a lawsuit alleging racial discrimination against CNN, Turner Broadcasting and Time Warner.
The lawsuit, filed on behalf of two black employees, Celeslie Henley and Ernest Colbert Jr, alleges that black employees were paid less and had fewer opportunities for promotions.
The claim? “Dramatic differences in pay, harsher evaluations for black males and fewer available promotions are among evidence of the prejudice.”
Lawyer Daniel Meachum explained that he uncovered the alleged discrimination when investigating a lawsuit for a different client of his, DeWayne Walker. Walker currently has a lawsuit against CNN for $50 million.
Walker’s lawsuit alleges that CNN did not promote him for 13 years because he is black, instead choosing to promote white employees.
“As a result of the current discrimination lawsuit filed on behalf of DeWayne Walker vs. CNN, Time Warner & Turner, we have uncovered stories involving abuse of power, nepotism, revenge, retaliation and discrimination,” Meachum said.
Henley, named in the lawsuit, claims that she worked for the company for seven years. She said that even though she worked longer hours than her coworkers, the company allegedly discriminated against her because of her race.
The lawsuit also alleges that black employees had to deal with racial slurs and other prejudices from management.
“Upon information and belief, African-American employees have had to endure racial slurs and prejudicial biases from superiors such as, ‘it’s hard to manage black people’ and ‘who would be worth more: black slaves from times past or new slaves,” the suit claims.
The outright falsehoods and hypocrisy of our mainstream media channels will continue to come to light over the next few months I’m sure, and its time. No more of this sheep herding journalism.
I wonder if pious Cooper is specifically named in any of these accusations? Not that it would be surprising.
