HOW NICE OF THEM: CNN Apologizes For Joking About Donald Trump’s Death
Yesterday, we told you about CNN getting caught joking about Donald Trump’s plane crashing when they thought no one was listening. The liberal “news” network apparently thought they hadn’t done enough damage to their already ruined brand.
Here’s the video:
Now, CNN is apologizing.
The Business Insider reports:

CNN Apologizes to Trump After Crew Caught Joking About His Plane Crashing
CNN has apologized to Donald Trump after a producer was caught on camera joking with reporter Suzanne Malveaux about the president-elect’s plane crashing.
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 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.”
Notice how the person who made the remarks is unidentified and has been “disciplined” rather than fired.
CNN has lost all its credibility during this election, not that they had much to begin with.
