CNN employee Elis Labott has been suspended for two weeks after expressing sympathy for refugees on Twitter. The House of Representatives voted, 289-137 to require the director of FBI, homeland security, and National intelligence to confirm that each applicant from Syria or Iraq poses no threat. Labott responded by tweeting “House passes a bill that could limit Syrian refugees. Statue of Liberty bows head in anguish.” Opponents argue this is the same network that employs Don Lemon and others who regularly express their opinions on air during the news.
Is the message if you are not a star keep your mouth shut? Was this employee treated unfairly?
