News: OUCH! CNN’s Don Lemon earns a spot on ‘Worst Journalism Of 2014′ list

In 2014, Don Lemon has made some pretty questionable reporting choices. It’s those very same choices that earned him a spot on Columbia Journalism Review fellow’s list of the “worst journalism” of 2014.

CJR’s David Uberti explains how Lemon ended up on the list for his spotty journalism over the past year.
“As one of the most recognizable anchors on CNN, Don Lemon has helped lead the cable network’s coverage of the biggest stories of the year. Live television is exceedingly difficult to produce, of course, but Lemon’s gaffes this year offer a case study in how to choose words wisely — or not,” Uberti wrote
Lemon’s comment that “Obviously, there’s a smell of marijuana” during a Ferguson protestand his remarks during an interview with a Bill Cosby accuser were cited as controversial moments by Uberti. The CNN wasn’t alone in the cable news world on the CJR worst list, Fox News Channel’s Fox & Friends also made Uberti’s list.
Well deserved spot I must say!
