CNN crew jokes about Trump Plane Crashing While… by dgraphics2009

From Hollywood Reporter:

The network says the producer had been “disciplined.”

CNN has apologized to Donald Trump after a producer was caught on camera joking with reporter Suzanne Malveaux about the president-elect’s plane crashing.

The remark was made before a live shot on Thursday.

The unidentified producer, in footage obtained and posted on YouTube by Scott Jones of FTV Live, can be heard saying “That means his plane’s crashed. No, I’m kidding.”

CNN released a statement Friday saying the producer had been “disciplined.”

“An unfortunate and inappropriate remark was made by one of our producers off camera yesterday,” CNN said in its statement. “We have apologized to the Trump transition team, and the producer has been disciplined.”

Trump has been a huge critic of the network essentially since he announced his bid for president, saying it has covered him unfairly. Even this week, he was criticizing the network through Twitter.
