Here's my CNN story about CNN staffers questioning the hiring of Jeff Sessions' former spokeswoman. Political reporters "are up in arms about this," one of the staffers said.

The heart of the issue /why this hire is different from the typical "revolving door" of political operatives entering media jobs: "We hired a former Trump administration official *to help 'guide'* our coverage of his re-election"https://mailchi.mp/cnn/rs-feb-19-2019 …

I think this is the most important reaction I've read to the @whignewtons-to-CNN news. From @brianstelter's newsletter. https://mail.google.com/mail/u/0?ui=2&ik=00cea67bdc&view=lg&permmsgid=msg-f:1625961874045881519 …

CNN employees are concerned, according to numerous people who have reached out to me. They are asking what Isgur's role will be and questioning whether her sudden leap from the Trump admin to the CNN newsroom is an ethical breach. https://mailchi.mp/cnn/rs-feb-19-2019 …

Quoted @PolkAwards

George Polk Special Award: David Ignatius and Karen Attiah of the Washington Post for holding Saudi Arabian accountable for the gruesome murder of Jamal Khashoggi. #khashoggi

David and Karen have done extraordinary work to hold Saudis accountable. Thanks to the, and to @PolkAwards for honoring them. The killing of Jamal Khashoogi was reprehensible and those responsible should face condemnation and justice.

Those who tell you Mueller needs to find crimes: He is not just looking for crimes... this is about understanding whether anyone had contact or even coordinated with those involved in Russian interference in our election.

Quoted @brianstelter

"GOP operative joins CNN" is getting a LOT of criticism, especially from Dems. But love it or hate it, political insiders have been joining newsrooms for decades. The more viewpoints represented in newsrooms, the better. As for the critiques, @CNNPR declined to comment.

I think it's a bit different to hire, as a political editor, the top spokesperson for the law enforcement agency that was hunting leakers including a few that were presumably passing info to CNN.

When @brianstelter says "the more viewpoints represented in newsrooms, the better," he's making the usual industry mistake of treating positions as the same thing as opinions https://medium.com/s/on-whose-authority/the-new-york-times-the-internet-and-the-death-of-opinion-a192c232a4c9 …

A lot of people go into press from politics. Tim Russert was an aide to Daniel Patrick Moynihan and Mario Cuomo. No reason CNN shouldn't hire an ex-Republican operative as part of a team covering politics.

Quoted @politico

Donald Trump has derided CNN as a leading purveyor of “fake news,” and now, a recently departed administration official is joining the network in a senior role https://politi.co/2DRZCOa 

I asked @CNNPR for more details on this. @WhigNewtons will report to political director @DavidChalian. She's joining a group of several political editors who coordinate coverage, which entails managing teams in the field / sending out news alerts internally / etc.
