It’s doubtful that anyone is really surprised that the head honchos at CNN are actively discriminating against its employees over their private medical decisions.
In the recent months, the coronavirus vaccine, while being a medical breakthrough in its own right, has become a progressive badge of honor and a way to signal your virtue. Like most topics in America today, the vaccine has become a partisan hotbed of strong opinions and even stronger tyrannical action.
Large, liberal cities across the nation have signaled their support for vaccine requirements. Mayor of New York City Bill de Blasio recently announced a vaccine mandate so strict, that New Yorkers must get a shot if they wish to partake in any indoor activity — including gyms, restaurants, museums, theaters, etc.
And now, the radicals at CNN are following suit.
CNN fired three employees Thursday for refusing vaccination in the largest reported purge at the compay since 2017.
President of CNN Worldwide Jeff Zucker issued a statement in support of his decision to fire the employees, citing his “zero-tolerance policy on this.”
Here’s what Zucker had to say about his unvaccinated employees:

The firing of the three staffers comes after a number of CNN employees in 2017 resigned following the publication and subsequent retraction of a story linking a Trump transition team member to the Russia-related investigations.
But the very fake news’ scandal that engulfed CNN inside and outside the left-wing network reached “its highest levels as even CNN president Jeff Zucker was “personally involved in the internal investigation into a now-retracted hit piece,” according to conservative media working with a CNN source.
One month later, Zucker confessed to the New York Times he was not “getting a lot of sleep lately,” before acknowledging that he doesn’t “sleep that much anyway.”
It was reported earlier this month that for the full week of July 26, CNN had only an average of 706,000 viewers during their primetime hours. Fox News ranked first with 1.986 million and MSNBC ranked second with 1.127 million.
