Racism Does Not Belong On Television: Tell CNN To Fire Corey Lewandowski and Scottie Nell Hughes

Instead of allowing Donald Trump supporters like Corey Lewandowski and Scottie Nell Hughes on their channel, CNN should provide fair and balanced political coverage to its viewers. Tell CNN to fire Corey Lewandowski and Scottie Nell Hughes immediately!

Why is this important?

In a shameless move to increase their ratings, CNN is providing Donald Trump supporters Corey Lewandowski and Scottie Nell Hughes with paid positions and a national platform to promote Donald Trump’s hatred and racism.

Even worse, CNN is hiring Lewandowski and Nell Hughes in order to cater specifically to Donald Trump supporters - since their regular Republican contributors oppose Donald Trump’s candidacy.

By hiring Corey Lewandowski as a regular commentator, CNN is effectively validating the opinions of someone who repeatedly denied press access to journalists covering Donald Trump’s campaign, was charged with a misdemeanor after forcibly grabbing reporter who was attempting to ask Donald Trump a question, and who helped normalize Donald Trump’s dangerous and toxic rhetoric.

By hiring Scottie Nell Hughes, CNN is demonstrating that it is willing to promote the opinions of an individual who has defended Donald Trump’s use of anti-Semitic imagery on Twitter and has promoted riots at the Republican National Convention.

If we want to stop Donald Trump’s racist rhetoric from spreading, then we keep biased political commentators like Corey Lewandowski and Scottie Nell Hughes from appearing on networks like CNN.

We demand that CNN terminates Corey Lewandowski and Scottie Nell Hughes’ contracts and removes them from the network immediately!
