There’s just something about CNN. It has an incredible talent for getting stories wrong and hiring the absolute worst people for the job. Now CNN is continuing that tradition with its latest hire, according to a story today from The Daily Caller.
You won’t believe who CNN has just hired. Even for them it’s a step down.
Playboy’s White House correspondent Brian Karem has been taken on as an on-air contributor for CNN.
Karem tweeted the happy news Thursday night.
Happy to announce that in addition to covering the WH for Playboy and the Sentinel newspapers – I will now be an on-air contributor for CNN

Karem is basically a nobody who came into the limelight after he went on a deranged rant at Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders this June. According to Karem, Sanders is “inflammatory.”
Watch his talent for yourself.
Well CNN thought so. They brought Karem on multiple times to have him tell the story about his little ouburst. Karem claimed he had been “bullied” and that his feelings were hurt by being called “fake media.”
“At the end of the day, I’ve been browbeaten for six months and told I’m an enemy and, to be honest, I don’t think it’s accurate and it’s driving a wedge between us and the public,” he whined self-righteously.
Even Washington’s establishment press isn’t too excited about this hire. One White House correspondent pointed out that Karem has a reputation for being “notoriously rude.”
It should also come as no surprise that Karem isn’t too … concerned … about what’s true or not.
Again, this "journalist" has a long history of just making &*#% up and tweeting it out https://t.co/lL8dMPqQ2m

Do you agree with Griswold or do you think CNN can’t embarrass itself any more than it already has?
