Former and current black employees on Tuesday filed a class action lawsuit against Atlanta-based CNN, Turner Broadcasting and New York based parent company Time Warner for racial discrimination.
...
“This discrimination represents a company-wide pattern and practice,” the lawsuit asserts, “rather than a series of isolated incidents.” He said the company has been discriminating against blacks for more than 20 years.

I'm not a fan of CNN, it's no secret. If this is found to be true, it would further damage a diminishing reputation of the network.

Having said that, in this day and age, this hypocrisy needs to be called out and put to an end. I wish these folks all the compensation they are deserved.

I wonder if Vann Jones would call this a blacklash?

We allow one to exist in Breaking Alternative News and one other in a related forum, but that only applies to the BAN forum. You're good

Personally, I'm hoping to just sit back with some popcorn and enjoy Lady Karma do her thing. I truly despise CNN and wish them the strongest call back to reality.

edit on 12/7/16 by Gothmog because: pulled , personal reasons

I will say this. The person pictured won a very large employer discrimination lawsuit. In Georgia , this is almost unprecedented. The charges have to be virtually undeniably true
Now it is 30-40 (or more) filing a discrimination lawsuit against CNN . Along the same lines.

I'm deplorable, so I thought everyone used broad brushes.

But if it helps, only those authoritarian leftists who embrace fewer freedoms and more laws and bigger government. . . those are the ones that are racists.

Broad brushes only apply to things like Muslims not being terrorists, police all being racist thugs, and Republicans all being racist hillbillies.

The think is CNN is so far up its own arse it just makes there view scewed !

Reminds me of chemical Ali in the centre of Baghdad ,saying they was in control and the American army was tearing down the road behind him .

but as long as the lawyers get 90% or what ever bs gets served up what's it matter.

All about the dollar 💵

Shame but ordinary folk foot the bill one way or the other.

What you mean those authoritarian right wing lefties?

No one likes those. Hillary is a case in point.
