CNN has proven to be a scandal-ridden propaganda factory.
The network’s ratings are in the gutter as more viewers turn away.
And CNN had another embarrassing sex scandal blow up in their faces.
Another week goes by, and CNN embroils itself in another ugly scandal.
The network recently fired Chris Cuomo after he helped his brother, disgraced former New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, coordinate against sexual harassment claims.
Not long after, producer John Griffin was fired for soliciting children to engage in illegal sex acts.
Now Jake Tapper’s producer, Rick Saleeby, resigned after investigative journalists at Project Veritas exposed him as a potential pedophile who fantasized about molesting his fiancée’s underage daughter.
From The Post Millennial:
“Saleeby was revealed by Project Veritas to have allegedly solicited sexually explicit images of an underage girl, with additional texts showing him fantasizing about molesting his fiancé’s daughter. One text exchange reportedly featured the producer telling the source how his fiancé’s daughter was ‘wearing very closely cut bottoms at the pool,’ before graphically describing how he could see the outline of her genitals.”
Saleeby is currently under investigation by law enforcement, who seized his electronic devices.

Ironically, three years ago Project Veritas caught Saleeby on camera exposing another creep at the network.
Former CNN producer Steve Brusk resigned after Saleeby’s claims.
Project Veritas alerted Saleeby’s fiancée, and she showed her gratitude for exposing the potential predator.
She said in a heartfelt message:
“I wanted to reach out to sincerely thank you again. I am very grateful toward you guys and everything you’ve done for me and my children. Our world has just been completely flipped upside down, but none of that matters. We are all safe. I’m hoping, praying, and pushing for charges to be brought against him, so he can never do this to another child/family again…Despite the hardships ahead, I am going to continue to sit with these feelings of gratitude toward you guys and the woman who provided you with the information. Gratitude will get us through to the other side of all this. Thank you from the bottom of my heart and Merry Christmas.”
CNN clearly seems to have a culture problem.
Host Don Lemon is currently in litigation regarding credible claims of sexual assault, and legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin was allowed back at the network after getting caught masturbating during a video conference.
CNN broke a cardinal sin of journalism and has become the story.
