Not to be outdone, CNN’s adding one of their own names to the Perv Party today:
And in still more harassment news: @cnn tells me it dismissed Teddy Davis, senior producer of @jaketapper's "State of the Union" program, over behavior "that does not align with the standards and values of CNN." Three women had complained about Davis.

More from the Hollywood Reporter:
“A comprehensive investigation was conducted as soon as this matter was brought to our attention. The behavior attributed to Mr. Davis does not align with the standards and values of CNN and Mr. Davis is no longer with the company,” a CNN spokesperson said in a statement Wednesday.
Davis served as producer on the network’s State of the Union, hosted by Jake Tapper, prior to his termination.
According to a source at CNN, the network’s internal investigation into Davis surfaced instances of the ousted producer making fellow colleagues uncomfortable. There were no reports of physical or sexual assault.
Well, this is all going just swimmingly.
And another one bites the dust. https://t.co/bOP4vzgfB7

It doesn’t show any signs of slowing down.
Will Jake tweet about this? Hmmm

As of this post’s publication, Jake Tapper hadn’t yet tweeted on Davis’ ouster.
Tapper has responded to the news on Twitter:
This tweet is accurate. When CNN executives were told about these complaints, they reacted swiftly and appropriately, as they should. Workplaces need to be safe and I am fully supportive of CNN's action. https://t.co/S4ZPNfTCPm
