On the same day that Fox News Media announced it had agreed to “part ways” with news show host Tucker Carlson, Don Lemon has been fired as a news anchor at CNN.

Earlier this month,  Variety published a report accusing Lemon of misogyny for the way he has treated female coworkers over the years. He also took fire earlier this year for saying on the air that Republican White House contender Nikki Haley is too old to run for president. She is 51.

“Nikki Haley isn’t in her prime, sorry,” Lemon said. “When a woman is considered to be in her prime — in her 20s, 30s and maybe her 40s.”

Lemon announced the news of his firing on Twitter and lashed out at CNN: “I am stunned. After 17 years at CNN I would have thought someone in management would have had the decency to tell me directly.”

Instead, CNN gave the news to his agent, who relayed the message to him.

“At no time was I ever given any indication that I would not be able to continue to do the work I have loved at the network,” Lemon wrote. “It is clear there are larger issues at play.”

Two years ago, CNN fired Chris Cuomo, after it was discovered that he was helping his brother, former Gov. Andrew Cuomo, fight allegations of sexual misconduct. Cuomo sued CNN for $125 million for wrongful termination, and that case is still pending.

  1. Awww shucks. There goes my all time favorite news person. I guess I will have to substitute that TV time with Jerry Springer or Kardashian reruns and get my news views from “The VIEW”. Life just doesnt seem fair anymore 🙁

  2. Breaking: Don Lemon squeezed from his formerly juicy position with CNN.
    When asked how he felt about having been sliced from CNN’s lineup, Mr. Lemon grated that he was feeling rather sour and a little bitter about the whole episode, and that he has now lost his zest for broadcasting. Rumor has it, though, that Lemon is already Pledged to another network.

  3. He was a compulsive liar and election denier. The 2016 election. Never had any proof, no video, no paper trail, no witnesses. Still acted like a crazy person and denied the results that President Trump won. Russia, Russia, Russia.
    Also went all in on Jussie skillet fraud case. Not sad to see him fired.

  4. Fox News is a pseudo-conservative sham. It’s just Murdock playing conservatives for profit. But when some real news comes out, like 1/6 videos, FoxNews puts the lid on it to protect liberals. Tucker is gone because he did his job too well.

  5. “Lemon wore a bow tie and hated Trump, instead of fixing our budget and border, now Lemon wants to go after the powerless.”

    Whatever that means….franks been nipping at the cough medicine again.

  6. Moreover about the old woman part… The 45+ woman may be seeing effects of aging she didn’t have at 20-39, but if she is walking with God she can have acquired wisdom, cleverness, quick wit coy humor, grace and compassion that not many younger women had developed yet.
