Whether you're quoting someone or not, using the n-word on my show is not okay. Period.

CNN’s Brooke Baldwin shut down anti-Trump critic Charles Kaiser on her show yesterday after Kaiser used the N-word on air in an attempt to falsely smear incoming White House strategist Steve Bannon.
A visibly emotional Baldwin said, “The more I’ve sat here and listened to the fact that somebody used the N-word on this show — it is not OK. It is not OK, Charles Kaiser.” Baldwin then ended the segment earlier with a “we’re done” and fact-checked the clown, saying “The claim that Mr. Bannon used the N-word, I’ve never heard of this, so there’s that.”

Kaiser later apologized to CNN for using the n-word on air and said he meant to slime Sen. Jeff Sessions instead:
“In the heat of the moment, I said the word n—– on CNN. What’s worse, I think, is that I attributed its use to Bannon, rather than Sessions, which was a mistake,” he said, referring to Trump’s choice for attorney general, Sen. Jeff Sessions of Alabama.
