CNN Hit With Another Racial Discrimination Lawsuit – More To Follow

CNN loves to accuse Conservatives of being racists but the liberal network is now facing another racial discrimination lawsuit. This isn’t the first time this has happened and the lawyer involved says there are more plaintiffs to come.

CNN faces another racial discrimination lawsuit, lawyer says

The Atlanta lawyer whose racial discrimination suit against CNN was dismissed earlier this year says he is re-filing the class action case – this time with a new set of plaintiffs and even more alleged victims.

The network news channel’s alleged racial discrimination is “as abhorrent as all of the sexual harassment cases that are rightfully now being prosecuted,” Daniel R. Meachum told Fox News. “Educated, well-intentioned, experienced and talented African-Americans are being discriminated against.”

Celeslie Henley, a plaintiff in the first version, said she worked at CNN for seven years until she was allegedly fired after emailing the human resources department about discriminatory treatment. The suit also claimed that the liberal network had a “glass ceiling” on the career paths of African-American staffers.

The original lawsuit had 175 plaintiffs, but Meachum said 30 more alleged victims have come forward since Judge William Duffey Jr. essentially ruled in July the case didn’t have enough to move forward as a class action suit. “We are drafting a new complaint, line by line, addressing the issues that he outlined for us,” Meachum said.

Sounds like CNN needs to handle its own internal problems before criticizing anyone else.
