CNN Staff ‘Demoralized’ After Network Hires #NeverTrump GOP Operative

Apparently the staff would prefer working with zero Republicans, even those of the #NeverTrump variety.

CNN staffers are reportedly “demoralized” after the network hired #NeverTrump GOP operative Sarah Isgur, who previously worked for former Attorney General Jeff ‘Mr. Magoo’ Sessions, Sen. Mitt Romney, and failed presidential candidate Carly Fiorina.

A report from The Daily Beast suggests CNN’s employees are “demoralized” after the hiring of Isgur to oversee its 2020 election coverage, in spite of her wide renown as a member of the Republican Party’s #NeverTrump coalition and status as a former employee of the limp wristed Sessions.

The hiring was met with a negative internal reaction, especially because many CNN staffers have been largely left in the dark on the controversial decision. While other marquee hires are often announced internally, as of Tuesday afternoon the company has not circulated any guidance to staff about Isgur’s new role, leading employees to wonder how much of a role she will have in day-to-day political reporting.

“It’s extremely demoralizing for everyone here,” one network editorial staffer told The Daily Beast.

After Fiorina’s campaign crashed and burned, and prior to joining President Donald J. Trump’s administration under Sessions, Isgur had openly called for a delegate battle at the Republican National Convention in 2016.

While appearing on an MSNBC broadcast in 2016, Isgur said she “will certainly hope for a contested convention, and if not I hope that someone will offer an alternative,” adding that “For a lot of us, this isn’t about party. This isn’t about winning for our team. This is about country.”

She concluded that she is “a conservative before [she’s] a Republican.”

Isgur also said she did not plan to vote for President Trump in 2016, instead saying she hoped there would be an “alternative” she could get behind.

While she has not publicly commented on her 2016 presidential vote, it seems logical she could have cast it for Evan McMullin, who launched a last-minute independent bid for president to deny President Trump votes in 2016.

Apparently, in spite of her #NeverTrump background and previous work for a highly controversial former member of the Trump administration, Isgur is still too radical and partisan for CNN’s left wing staff, as another staff member told The Daily Beast that “People are generally confused” by the “very bizarre” hiring decision.

New York Times Writer Blames Evangelical Christians for Chinese Coronavirus

Not China’s Communist Party.

Published

on

A New York Times writer published a column largely assigning blame for America’s Chinese coronavirus epidemic on Evangelical Christians.

In Stewart’s column, titled ‘The Religious Right’s Hostility to Science is Crippling Our Coronavirus Response,’ she frames conservative Christians for a supposed lacking national effort to contain the disease. Stewart alleges that Christians within the administration are preventing the federal government from recognizing ‘science,’ repeating a trope long alleged by liberals that their political opponents are supposedly ignorant of the discipline.
In the article, Stewart claims that “Donald Trump rose to power with the determined assistance of a movement that denies science, bashes government and prioritized loyalty over professional expertise. In the current crisis, we are all reaping what that movement has sown.”

She fails that recognize that scientific experts on viral outbreaks such as Dr. Anthony Fauci have informed the federal government’s response since the beginning of the crisis.

Stewart fails to mention that it was progressive liberals across the world who largely opposed international travel bans, a scientifically verifiable means of virus transmission and spread. The European Union lagged well behind the United States and Canada in placing curbs on travel across borders.

Perhaps most egregiously, she fails to even so much as assign any culpability for America’s coronavirus epidemic on the Chinese Communist Party, which failed to so much as even admit the scale of the problem as the disease first took the form of a true public health pandemic in China. The CCP’s negligent cover-up of the coronavirus epidemic in undoubtedly the most ‘unscientific’ governmental approach to the virus, with grave consequences. And China’s authoritarian leaders are by no means conservative Christians.

Stewart’s reaching move to blame Evangelicals for the coronavirus outbreak in America is merely a reactionary take from a cultural liberal seeking to impute political commentary in the midst of a pandemic.
