This even makes me blush. CNN scrapes the bottom of the barrel
-----------------------------

Journalist Jeffrey Toobin, who was suspended by CNN and fired from The New Yorker after he was caught masturbating on a zoom call last October in full view of colleagues, has been allowed back into the fold at the failing cable news network following a six-month period of 'reflection and growth.'



Hilariously, he had to sit there as CNN host Alisyn Camerota rang the shame bell behind him - then explain his side of it.

CONSPIRACY-PSEUDOSCIENCE​

Sources in the Conspiracy-Pseudoscience category may publish unverifiable information that is not always supported by evidence. These sources may be untrustworthy for credible/verifiable information; therefore, fact-checking and further investigation is recommended on a per article basis when obtaining information from these sources. See all Conspiracy-Pseudoscience sources.

  • Overall, we rate ZeroHedge an extreme right-biased conspiracy website based on the promotion of false/misleading/debunked information that routinely denigrates the left.

Wacky, fake news site ran by Bulgarians who have ties to Russian military intelligence.

CNN is full of jerk-offs. Now they have a literal one.

Since when did righties care about powerful people and inappropriate sex acts? They sure don't mind if they have an R by their name. donald trump, Matt Gaetz, Roy Moore, Gym Jordan...

You're having a visceral reaction to hearing about Toobin masturbating.
Why?
Is there something about being caught masturbating which elicits this response?
Is the response more Toobin-centric?

You know what your problem is? You don't want to admit to the obvious: you love to troll-bait.

More petulant insults instead of factual rebuttals to the topic.

OH GEEZE!

Toubin masturbating while on a Zoom call is pretty stupid, no getting around that, but there are likely more than a few who want to ride this pony for the sensationalism that masturbate while on their computers, only diff is, they ain't been caught - yet.

What does this have to do about ANYTHING? Oh I know, he works for CNN, that is a good enough cause to get all excited about this story.

NOW IMAGINE, is some Fox News host got caught masturbating on a Zoom call, would we call that sleazy for the sake of it being truly sleazy or would our focus be "Sleazy because he works for Fox News."

This is a nothing - burger other than it exposed a sad sorry human being who felt the need to jerk off on a Zoom call, if some of y'all think this is SOMETHING because he works for CNN, well, all I can say is - hope you never get caught.

I mean I can forgive it too but I'm not rehiring the guy and having to look him in the eyes again. Gross.

No fail, seems spot on to me, Fox sure has had more problems in this department then other Network News Orgs.

Conservative TV stations would never rehire someone who's done something wrong except for all the people they rehired or just didn't fire.

Fox had hosts who were paying millions in settlements and they didn't give a single crap.

If they are going this low why dont they just hire a professional porn star? Its not like the degree in journalism is worth anything at CNN. At least the porn star is more relatable.

Yeah, it's mostly about CNN for this crew--the Quakers are in the Sexuality Forum doing their thing.
