Former CNN host Reza Aslan recently caused controversy with a series of disgusting, foul-mouthed tweets against President Trump and others.
Now, in a rare classy move, CNN has fired Aslan.
“CNN has decided to not move forward…with Reza Aslan,” the network wrote in a statement reported by Variety magazine. “We wish Reza and his production team all the best.”
Had CNN chosen to run the show again, it would have been in only its 2nd season…so that’s a 1 and done for Reza.
But more striking is a statement Aslan released in response to the firing, in which he admits his role as a CNN host was NOT as a journalist nor a reporter, but as a liberal activist and propaganda man.
“I am not a journalist,” the statement says. “I’m a social commentator.”
