CNN Global Affairs Analyst Susan Glasser posted the next tweet in response to Fox News asserting that cameraman Pierre Zakrzewski died throughout an assault in Ukraine:
So grateful for the heroic work that Pierre and all of the journalists, Ukrainian and overseas, have been doing risking their lives to indicate us the horror of this battle. Makes the years of lies and propaganda a lot more durable to take—there are actually lethal penalties.

CNN has not commented on Glasser’s tweet. Instead, the community introduced Glasser on-air simply hours later to debate Ukraine on Newsroom.
The present’s hosts Victor Blackwell and Alisyn Camerota by no means as soon as requested Glasser to deal with her vile remark throughout the eight-minute section. Shame on them, as properly.
While we don’t root for corporations to fireplace or punish workers, publishing such an incendiary comment whereas Zakrzewski’s household grieves — or ever — is maybe an exception to the rule. It’s inexcusable. What a disgusting individual Glasser is.
Clay Travis reacted to Glasser’s tweet on the radio Tuesday:
For that to be your rapid response this morning, if you hear that anyone has died on the job attempting to cowl the scenario in Ukraine, frankly, Susan Glasser must be ashamed of herself, and her employer must be ashamed of itself. And, by the best way, I might say the identical factor if a New Yorker journalist had died in Ukraine and the very first thing that anyone from conservative media did was assault that.
Social media typically may be dehumanizing. But when somebody dies and your first thought is to assault them or their employer or… I simply… Man, I simply don’t get it.
Our ideas and prayers exit to Pierre Zakrzewsk’s household.
