MRC's Bozell Hails ‘Unmistakable Message’ Sent as CNN Cuts Ties With Hateful Host

CNN on Friday belatedly made the right decision to cut ties with host Reza Aslan in the wake of his profanity-laced tirade against Donald Trump. According to a statement, “CNN has decided to not move forward with production” of his show Believer. Media Research Center President Brent Bozell issued the following statement about the MRC’s effort to hold Aslan accountable: 

America has sent an unmistakable message to CNN. We will not stand idly by while their so-called "religious scholar" smears the president of the United States and conservative leaders with obscenity-laden insults. MRC supporters  generated an avalanche of over 7,000 phone calls to CNN this week demanding Reza Aslan’s removal. CNN paid attention and  ultimately did the right thing -- which they should have done immediately. When left-wing pundits and journalists use social media as a platform to slander those with whom they disagree, including President Trump, there will be consequences. It is reckless, sophomoric and unprofessional. Our campaign to hold the liberal media accountable does not end here. This is just the beginning.”
