Former CNN Employees Speak Out: CNN "Openly Despises Conservatives"

Conservatives who were previously employed by CNN are now speaking out, claiming that the news network is "anti-Trump" even though CNN themselves claim to be neutral. One of these conservatives is going as far to say that CNN "openly despises conservatives."
"Most of us got squeezed out involuntarily,” former Georgia congressman Jack Kingston said. “I was there for two years and was certainly willing to continue. It was clear to me in the end that the Republicans they prefer are anti-Trump Republicans.”
Check out what Fox News reported in relation to the bias against conservatives in regards to CNN:
Pro-Trump contributors at CNN seem to have come and gone in recent months. Last week, the network fired former Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli as reports indicated he was being considered for a high-ranking immigration post in the Department of Homeland Security.
Earlier this year, CNN fired economic analyst Stephen Moore after President Trump nominated him to serve on the Federal Reserve Board. But Moore withdrew from consideration after CNN and other outlets reported old derogatory remarks he made about women and the Obamas.
Previously, CNN let go other commentators who supported President Trump. Contributors Jeffrey Lord and Ed Martin were fired for remarks they made outside the network. Paris Denard was let go after he was accused of sexual misconduct from a previous job. The contracts of Kingston and former South Carolina Lt. Gov. Andre Bauer were not renewed. And former Trump campaign and administration officials Corey Lewandowski, Marc Short and Jason Miller all had short-lived paid contributorships.
Kingston wasn't the only ex-CNN contributor to speak out. Stephen Moore has made it clear that he is very frustrated with the network as well.
“Who are the Republicans, John Kasich? He hates Trump!” Moore said while discussing how CNN is employing Republicans like Kasich who doesn't even like the President. "CNN is the 'hate Trump' network. They just trash Trump every single hour of every single day. All they’ve talked about for two years is the Mueller report and how bad does it make them look now that it proved nothing."
Bryan Lanza, former Trump campaign deputy communications director has also left CNN, claiming they are only "anti-Trump," not "conservative versus liberal.”
“If you hate Trump, you tune to CNN to validate your hatred,” Lanza said to Mediaite. “Not sure it’s a winning formula -- and I’m validated by their last-place performance against other outlets.”
“CNN used to pretend it accepted right-wing voices for balance, but now it openly despises conservatives who are pro-Trump,” former CNN contributor Buck Sexton, a former CIA intelligence officer, said. “Today the entire enterprise clings to a fundamental dishonesty: that it has no political agenda. Taking down Trump is obviously the agenda. And in this regard, some of CNN’s ‘hard news’ anchors are the biggest journalistic frauds of all.”
Since the election of President Trump, CNN has been leaning farther and farther Left as they continue to rid themselves of conservative commentators and journalists.
