BREAKING: CNN Accuses Don Lemon Of Lying About Details Of His Departure At The Network


(trendingpoliticsnews) – CNN has made a shocking accusation against its former anchor, Don Lemon, alleging that he lied about the details of his departure from the network. This development comes after CNN confirmed that it had terminated Lemon’s contract after 17 years, but did not provide any reasons for the decision.

In a tweet, CNN Communications accused Lemon of making a false statement about the circumstances of his departure. “Don Lemon’s statement about this morning’s events is inaccurate. He was offered an opportunity to meet with management but instead released a statement on Twitter,” the tweet read.

Regardless of the reason behind the termination and the subsequent accusations, the situation has caused a stir within the network. Lemon, who had been a fixture at CNN for nearly two decades, had a sizable following and is regarded as one of the network’s most recognizable faces.

Lemon released a statement on Twitter Monday morning announcing that he had been fired. “I was informed this morning by my agent that I have been terminated by CNN. I am stunned,” he wrote. “After 17 years at CNN I would have thought that someone in management would have had the decency to tell me directly.”

“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. It is clear that there are some larger issues at play. With that said, I want to thank my colleagues and the many teams I have worked with for an incredible run. They are the most talented journalists in the business, and I wish them all the best.”
