Don Lemon To Return To CNN This Week, Will Undergo “Formal Training”

Posted February 20, 2023 by with 5 comments

“Formal training” on what? How to be a news anchor without sounding like an idiot? That seems like something he should’ve done 20 years ago. In any event, Don Lemon will undergo some type of “training” (CNN isn’t saying what the training is or when it will take place) after his disastrous attempt at criticizing worthless MAGA whore Nikki Haley and her pointless presidential campaign last week. Also, Lemon will be back this week after being off the air for three episodes of the dumb “CNN This Morning” (which will inevitably be canceled or have all of its anchors replaced by the end of the year anyway). Via Deadline:

Don Lemon will return to CNN This Morning on Wednesday following the backlash over comments he made last week about when women were in their “prime.”

CNN Worldwide Chairman and CEO Chris Licht wrote in a memo to staff late Monday, “I sat down with Don and had a frank and meaningful conversation. He has agreed to participate in formal training, as well as continuing to listen and learn. We take this situation very seriously.

Licht added, “It is important to me that CNN balances accountability with fostering a culture in which people can own, learn and grow from their mistakes. To that end, Don will return to CNN This Morning on Wednesday.”
