Sarah Isgur, the not “controversial” hire by CNN despite what THR says, has reportedly self-demoted herself from editor to pundit in the wake of criticism from the angry mob both inside and outside of CNN:

From the article:
On Friday, Isgur announced that she will instead join CNN as a political analyst, the on-air role traditionally held by former partisans.
. . .
A CNN spokesperson confirmed the change and said that it was Isgur’s idea. “We can confirm that when Sarah came to us and proposed her role be adjusted to a political analyst instead, we agreed and we look forward to her starting in that role,” the spokesperson told The Hollywood Reporter.
Isgur herself tweeted that the move was her idea:
It’s been a great vacation but I am back on twitter! And news: I will go to CNN as a Political Analyst instead. Will start next month on air and on line. See y’all soon!

Because what CNN was missing was another pundit:
What CNN needed was a pundit. Definitely not editorial diversity or anything silly. Pundit.

And not representation in the actual newsroom:
God forbid they let a Republican in the newsroom

And libs are still angry:
Nobody needs your analyses. We already know your ideas when you worked for Sessions.
