In a terrible exchange that exposes the true feelings the news network has for the president-elect, a CNN producer and reporter were caught on hot mic joking about Donald Trump’s plane crashing.
The incident points to the extreme media bias most pro-life voters believe the liberal media outlets have.
The remark was made before a live shot on Thursday. The unidentified producer, in footage obtained and posted on YouTube by Scott Jones of FTV Live, can be heard saying “That means his plane’s crashed. No, I’m kidding.” CNN on-air reporter Suzanne Malveaux beams with a smile about it.
CNN released a statement Friday saying the producer had been “disciplined.”
“An unfortunate and inappropriate remark was made by one of our producers off camera yesterday,” CNN said in its statement. “We have apologized to the Trump transition team, and the producer has been disciplined.”
