A few years ago CNN had faced accusations of racism from black journalists and discrimination suits.
… and not racism that can be discredited as BS, like milk is racist because it’s white.
Black employees of the network have accused CNN of the worst kinds of discrimination: wrongful termination, paid less than white staffers, even unfairly passed for promotions, and the real shocker… racial slurs.
With this latest suit in the works, it could include more than 175 past and present CNN employees. A potential class action suit that could DESTROY the network.
According to a plaintiffs’ motion to amend that was filed March 23, “Since the filing of this action, counsels for the plaintiffs have been contacted by more than 175 people, both former and current employees of the Defendant[.]
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?”
For CNN to be as liberal as they are, you would think they would be the LAST news network on the planet to receive a lawsuit like this.
Some, if you listen to the MSM, might expect this from FOX News.
Alas! It is not and my, my how bad this is going to be for them.
