CNN has suspended Roland Martin indefinitely for tweets he wrote during the Super Bowl which were construed as homophobic.
In one tweet, Martin writes, “If a dude at your Super Bowl party is hyped about David Beckham’s H&M underwear ad, smack the ish out of him, #superbowl.” CNN stated, “Language that demeans is inconsistent with the values and culture of our organization, and is not tolerated.”
Yet in November 2010, it was Martin who wrote, “Maybe someone should kick Sarah Palin,” after Palin criticized First Lady Michelle Obama’s anti-obesity campaign. Did CNN reprimand Martin in way, shape or form? What do you think?
Apparently language that demeans Sarah Palin (and conservatives in general) is not inconsistent with the values and culture at CNN and is not only tolerated but encouraged.
