CNN Global Affairs Analyst Susan Glasser posted the following tweet in response to Fox News announcing that cameraman Pierre Zakrzewski died during an attack in Ukraine:
CNN has not commented on Glasser's tweet. Instead, the network brought Glasser on-air just hours later to discuss Ukraine on Newsroom. You can watch the segment here.
The show's hosts Victor Blackwell and Alisyn Camerota never once asked Glasser to address her vile comment during the eight-minute segment. Shame on them, as well.
While we don't root for companies to fire or punish employees, publishing such an incendiary remark while Zakrzewski's family grieves -- or ever -- is perhaps an exception to the rule. It's inexcusable. What a disgusting person Glasser is.
Clay Travis reacted to Glasser's tweet on the radio Tuesday:
Our thoughts and prayers go out to Pierre Zakrzewsk's family.
