Wow, Jeff Zucker’s got to be kicking himself that he resigned from CNN right as it was gearing up to launch its paid subscription service, CNN+. As Twitchy reported, CNN has already given a show to Twitter troll and content thief Rex Chapman, and now we’re hearing that Jemele Hill is also getting a show. As Joe Concha points out, Hill said Glenn Youngkin won the gubernatorial race in Virginia because “this country simply loves white supremacy.” We imagine Hill’s show will make Joy Reid’s sound tame.
Jemele Hill — who called Trump a white supremacist & said "the country simply loves white supremacy" following 2021 GOP wins in Virginia that included the election of the first Black woman (Winsome Sears) as Lt. Gov — has been hired by CNN+.
This is as on-brand as it gets…

She’s also been sorry to find “that many black men just want better access to patriarchy” and noted on January 6 that the Capitol Police “see black people as a threat that needs to be eliminated.”

Joe she’s not going to date you…. Her response in 5,4,3,2,1

On the bright side, she will never be seen in public again.

Their plan is to replace obnoxious people with someone even more obnoxious.

Kaepernick must be holding out until they fill the roster. He'll need to know that he's the highest paid.

Wow – I thought they may have decided to go in a new more moderate direction.

So CNN going farther left!

Goldberg and Wallace have company!

I love that Chris Wallace and Jonah Goldberg will be working that nut.

Wallace should be so excited

Right at home with Chris Wallace and Don Lemon!

CNN is doubling down to the subterranean level for 2022.

I thought they were doing a clean up. Guess not.

Thought CNN was supposedly turning a new leaf toward real journalism.
— NanaBanana: Living in the Free State of Florida (@EmJHarris2) February 10, 2022
Unbelievable. So instead of becoming more reasonable and centrist (which you'd think they might, due to poor ratings) they take an even bigger leap to the left by hiring a race-baiting flame thrower. Wow.

Somebody at CNN decided, “Maybe the problem is we aren’t crazy enough.”

J.A. Adande going to be next? Seems they like racist ESPN rejects…
— Coldsooner (@Coldsooner) February 10, 2022
Sounds like the new guy in charge at CNN will be a great success.
— farmlife (@farmlifeintheus) February 10, 2022
Yes not shocking. I was hopeful they would make an attempt at promoting less race bating, racial defamation and other unscrupulous racial behavior but I guess I’m the clown. 🤡

Good. CNN+ makes no sense as a business model. The only way CNN can survive is to be a "loss leader" in a much more popular streaming service.
And no version of the parent company seems eager to do that.
— AmishDude (@TheAmishDude) February 10, 2022
CNN+ is going to offer you Jake Tapper’s book club, a talk show hosted by Don Lemon, Chapman doing something, and now Hill.
CNN, which just hired Rex Chapman, now hiring for a new team dedicated to covering disinformation https://t.co/kAvrHqHkW6
