THIS IS CNN: Jake Tapper Producer Fired Over Harassment Allegations

CNN has fired senior producer Teddy Davis over multiple harassment allegations. 

“And in still more harassment news: @cnn tells me it dismissed Teddy Davis, senior producer of @jaketapper‘s “State of the Union” program, over behavior “that does not align with the standards and values of CNN.” Three women had complained about Davis,” tweeted Washington Post reporter Paul Farhi.

Hollywood Reporter says:

“A comprehensive investigation was conducted as soon as this matter was brought to our attention. The behavior attributed to Mr. Davis does not align with the standards and values of CNN and Mr. Davis is no longer with the company,” a CNN spokesperson said in a statement Wednesday.

Davis served as producer on the network’s State of the Union, hosted by Jake Tapper, prior to his termination.

According to a source at CNN, the network’s internal investigation into Davis surfaced instances of the ousted producer making fellow colleagues uncomfortable. There were no reports of physical or sexual assault.

Shortly after the news broke, Jake Tapper confirmed the report in a tweet.

“This tweet is accurate. When CNN executives were told about these complaints, they reacted swiftly and appropriately, as they should. Workplaces need to be safe and I am fully supportive of CNN’s action,” tweeted Tapper.
