As Twitchy reported, former Department of Homeland Security chief-of-staff and current CNN contributor Miles Taylor lied to Anderson Cooper when asked if he wrote the anonymous New York Times op-ed, “I Am Part of the Resistance Inside the Trump Administration.”
“I wear a mask for two things, Anderson: Halloween and pandemics. So, no,” says @MilesTaylorUSA, when asked by @AndersonCooper if he is the author of the op-ed book written by someone called Anonymous. pic.twitter.com/sPjs4OoAnp

What should CNN do about Taylor now that he’s revealed to have lied on-air and also revealed that he was not a “high-ranking official” in the Trump administration, as the New York Times described him? We know what CNN should do, but that’s not what they’re doing.
A CNN spox just told me that Miles Taylor will remain a contributor despite lying to Anderson Cooper. CNN cannot have it both ways — slamming Trump for his lies, yet condoning a very big and blatant one by its own contributor.

They are going to have it both ways. That's all they do. There's nothing principled in cynical takedowns of other people's character.

It seems like they are having it both ways.

Yes they can. They are doing it. Doesnt make it right but yes they can and will continue to do so.

One small correction: CNN can, and will, have it both ways

Apparently CNN can indeed have it both ways.

As long as the contributor is furthering their agenda, they don’t care.

Agreed. He should be gone.

They had Cuomo play-act coming out of basement after he had been reported outside of his house. That was them producing theatre, as a part of their programming. This would seem tame in comparison.

I, for one, don't like people who lie. More importantly, I don't like listening to their opinions as commentators where their credibility & expertise is relevant. https://t.co/N8vXfFp4R6

Didn’t one of their other contributors just get caught on Zoom doing something? Hard to lose your paying gig over there.

Of course, it's CNN.
I mean, they air Brian Stelter every weekend
