Did you know that CNN is being sued for discrimination against black employees?  Of course you didn’t. (But I’m sure you’ve seen that Fox News has been hit with sexual abuse accusations, right?)  One hundred and seventy five current and former employees filed a lawsuit in December 2016 against CNN… not that anyone in the media actually would bother to report on this development.  However, the lawsuit is pretty far reaching, according to the Daily Wire:

Unlike the lawsuit against Fox News, the one against CNN and sister companies is much broader, claiming among other things that African-Americans receive lower performance ratings in evaluations, that there are dramatic differences in pay between similarly situated employees of different races and that the promotion of African-American employees is blocked by a “glass ceiling.” The complaint cites hiring and advancement statistics while alleging that African-American employees have endured slurs from superiors, including “It’s hard to manage black people” and “Who would be worth more: black slaves from times past, or new slaves?” …

According to a plaintiffs’ motion to amend that was filed March 23, “Since the filing of this action, counsels for the plaintiffs have been contacted by more than 175 people, both former and current employees of the Defendant, requesting to be members of the putative class action, all having similar complaints of intentional racial discrimination, discrimination impact and discriminatory practices employed by the Defendants.”

The most ironic part of all of this? CNN repeatedly – and regularly — tries to paint President Trump as a racist.  For example, Don Lemon has said Trump supporters are “complicit” in racism; Ana Navarro described Trump a “misogynist racist bigoted pig”; Jim Acosta even insinuated that Trump’s stance against the kneeling NFL players was based on race.  (Of course, Trump never has mentioned the ethnicities of the kneeling players.)

It’s almost like leftists have had had their irony detectors removed.   But the rest of us are certainly laughing.
