This is from The Hill and it officially wins âgreatest Toobin zinger of them allâ.

Happy ending for Toobin.
SO GOOD, RIGHT?!
We are so ashamed we didnât come up with this one.
From The Hill:
So, to unpack this, if Toobin had turned off his camera, this kind of behavior on a work call would have been a-okay?
It is amazing that CNN simply couldnât cut ties with him, since there isnât exactly a shortage of run-of-the-mill legal analysts to replace him. Is the embarrassment this brings the networkÂ reallyÂ this important to a network in a ratings freefall that has lostÂ nearly 70 percent of its audienceÂ since the beginning of the year?
For those who say Toobin shouldnât have his career canceled for making this (very big) mistake, thatâs not whatâs being advocated here. If Toobin is this talented, this indispensable, and another network sees him as an addition to its lineup despite this incident, then no one should stop him from being signed elsewhere.
But, undoubtedly, CNNâs contracts â like all cable news and broadcast news contracts â have something called a morality clause. Those clauses basically say that oneâs personal conduct can be considered for termination if he or she acts in what is deemed to be an inappropriate or reckless manner, thereby reflecting poorly on the network as a whole. Given the national headlines and ridicule, Toobinâs conduct has generated, the whole âreflects poorly on the networkâ thing would seem to apply here.
Holy crap, we agree with an opinion on The Hill.
Oh, itâs Joe Concha.
That explains it. Heh.
interesting choice of words, given the context.
