washingtonpost.com – CNN last month created a ruckus when it hired fired Donald Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski to do paid commentary regarding the presumptive Republican nominee. Heck, the network already had two others on the payroll to do just this sort of thing — Jeffrey Lord, a former White House political director, and Kayleigh McEnany, a conservative Christian writer.
Any assumption that CNN thus had enough in-house Trumpites ignores the essence of CNN under President Jeff Zucker: More, more, more! And so today brings the news that Scottie Nell Hughes, political editor of RightAlerts.com will join CNN in a paid capacity to also say pro-Trump things on air. Of course, she has already done quite a bit of that, and in the process triggered some skeptical questioning from CNN anchors.
