If you had any doubt about the loathsomeness of CNN, this story will convince you.
Joe Lockhart, who has built a career for himself on the network after serving as a press secretary for Bill Clinton, just suggested that President Trump’s press secratary Kayleigh McEnany should be fired. And he followed it up by suggesting that Tim Murtaugh, who is the communications director for the Trump campaign, should be shot.
Lockhart made a feeble effort to conceal his vicious attack with his phrasing, but that doesn’t make it better.
I worked as Press Secretary to a President. If i ever acted like @PressSec i'd hope someone fired me. I also served as the Press Secretary to a President running for reelection. If i ever acted like @TimMurtaugh I'd hope someone would take me outside and shoot me.

As of the time of this writing, CNN hasn’t fired Lockhart or disavowed his comments. And the tweet is still up on Twitter.
Can you imagine what would happen if a Republican said something similar?
