CNN’s “do as we say, not as we do” policy has relied a lot on their “say” part rather than doing. According to a new revelation from FEE and Jack Elbaum, the hypocrisy has come home to roost.
Not to take away from Elbaum’s personal testimony, here’s what he had to say about what he saw at a Billy Joel concert earlier this month:
“Only a few minutes after sitting down prior to the concert starting, I noticed three people I recognized to my left. These were not people I knew personally, but rather some of the most well-known names at CNN: primetime anchor Don Lemon, Sunday show host Fareed Zakaria, and the president of the network, Jeff Zucker.”
Elbaum goes on to point out that by the concert’s standards CNN’s trio was fine, since they’re all vaccinated. But not on the network’s own rules.
