Former CNN Producer Suggests Don Lemon Needs An Intervention Over Dangerous Rhetoric

Following the shooting in Boulder, Colorado this week, CNN’s Don Lemon has been going way over the top in his on-air rhetoric.

It has been so bad that a former CNN producer is now saying someone needs to step in and do something.

It’s about time someone said something. Lemon is often like this.

The Washington Examiner reports:

Former CNN producer calls on network to stop Don Lemon’s ‘dangerous’ rhetoric in wake of Boulder shooting

A former CNN producer called on his former employer to “step in” and stop host Don Lemon from spreading “offensive” and “dangerous” rhetoric in the wake of the Boulder shooting.

“Someone at CNN needs to step in. This hyperbole isn’t just offensive, it’s actually dangerous,” former CNN producer Steve Krakauer tweeted Wednesday.

His message was in response to a segment where Lemon said Americans are at constant risk of being shot to death.

“Every single one of us is just playing the odds at this point. The odds that in a country of 325 million souls that we won’t be the ones who get hit by the next bullets that start flying. We won’t be the one that gets that phone call about someone you love who did. That phone call that changes your life,” Lemon said as CNN’s on-screen graphic matched his spoken words.

Seriously, what is Don’s problem?

Is Don trying to compensate for CNN’s sinking ratings? Is this about panic?
