CNN’s credibility is sinking.
And it could soon reach new lows.
That’s because Megyn Kelly just called out CNN over a sex act caught on a Zoom video call.
Last fall, CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin was caught masturbating on camera during a Zoom call with colleagues from The New Yorker.
Megyn Kelly recently interviewed author Malcom Gladwell on her podcast about why CNN refused to fire Toobin after he got caught masturbating on camera.
Instead of going after CNN, Gladwell expressed his concerns over The New Yorker firing Toobin without explaining why.
“I think it’s as plain as the nose on your face,” Kelly said in a joke about Toobin’s on-camera masturbation being the only explanation Gladwell needed.
“Or you could go further south, if you really want to take it into Toobin land,” she added.
Of course CNN refused to fire Toobin.
Not only that, but they brought him back on air in June for a disgusting interview with anchor Alisyn Camerota.
Gladwell defended CNN, saying they were right to give him the benefit of the doubt because, according to Gladwell, there is a big difference between intentional and unintentional mistakes.
“I am one of those people who believes there is a clear ethical difference between an intentional and an unintentional act,” Gladwell continued.
Gladwell asserted that Toobin didn’t mean to get caught masturbating on camera so he should be allowed to keep his job, a statement that Kelly vehemently disagreed with.
“I’ve heard it posited that it may have been intentional because it was so reckless to the point where it’s possible that he enjoyed that – I realize he protests otherwise – but that he was actually looking to be an exhibitionist,” Kelly shot back.
