CNN announced on Tuesday it has hired longtime Republican operative Sarah Isgur as political editor, charged with shaping its 2020 campaign coverage. According to a CNN spokesperson, Isgur, who most recently worked as the Department of Justice's main spokesperson under then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions, will coordinate the network's political coverage for the 2020 election cycle on TV and on CNN's website.

CNN's new political editor, Sarah Isgur, once referred to her future employer as the "Clinton News Network," and has used false claims and conspiracies to demean Democrats.

She'll coordinate the network's 2020 coverage on TV and online.

Further confirming my belief that the Cable News Networks are all about clickbait.

It will be fun to watch the Left's heads explode if CNN turns on them as a result of this hire.

I doubt anyone head is going to explode as CNN has always had a plethora of Trump cronies and apologists on the air. Anyone who doesn't know this had not been watching CNN.

What could possibly go wrong?:

CNN's new political editor pushed conspiracy theories about Planned Parenthood that were based on misleadingly edited videos

Lincoln's Bible @LincolnsBible

More Lincoln's Bible Retweeted Aaron Rupar
These videos were an op concocted by Chuck Johnson & a hacker known as "Weev". The former is a holocaust denier & the latter has a huge swastika tattooed on his chest.

Oh, & Kellyanne Conway had her hands all up in it.
Nice job hiring the nut jobs, Zucker.

"CNN has been so blatantly partisan that I quit watching them years ago."

Then you probably missed that they hired Alisyn Camerota for their morning show (6 to 9 am) after she'd spent 16 years at Fox News.

The media was biased to promote Trump last time. Sober policy analysis just doesn't sell.

Same, watching them get grabbed by the p ssy and cater to the trump cult ended any CNN viewing for me.

I didn't know at the time "fake news" was a campaign promise.

CNN will rebrand themselves as Fox News II. Fascism is rising, like it or not. We need a liberal revolution to put the Fascists among us in their rightful place; i.e. out of power.

CNN is now a "News" organization. They are an entertainment organization. They've always been.

The focus is changing from wacko Trump to the wacko Democrats!

That's right. Fabricating anti-Trump and repeating juicy propaganda is how to make money. The real entertainment is coming up though. The wacko's running for the Democrat nomination will sell a lot of popcorn.

BTW, why do you use the word 'fascism' when Obamacare is fascism by definition?

Anything left of the KKK and Trump's twitter feed is too liberal for you.

The left already knows CNN isn't liberal, it's corporate. But the most famous liar in the world tells you CNN is liberal so you believe him.

If CNN was liberal, they wouldnt have treated sanders as a joke when his crowds were bigger than hillary's. Nor would they have given trump days upon days of free airtime, sometimes just covering his empty podium for a half hour before he took the stage, instead of using that time to investigate his background.
