Roland Martin Out At CNN

Martin responded to his Twitter followers who asked why his last day on CNN would be April 6. "New boss wants his own peeps," Martin wrote, presumably referring to CNN's new president Jeff Zucker.

What was wrong with him?

by Anonymousreply 303/20/2013

He was a homophobic twit

"Thank God"

You sound like a Proud MARY!

I'll second r1, because I am proudly the proudest of all Proud Marys who ever Mary'ed:

[bold]THANK GOD[/bold] that fat homophobic asshole idiot is gone!!

Long overdue. Now if they could just get rid of Piers, CNN might actually get back on track.

Now he can devote all his time to curing homosexuals of their illness with his wife.

Good riddance. Homophobic asshole who should have been fired a long time ago.

Woo hoo

I hope I never see his fat, pompous face again.

Does anyone have any examples homophobic statements by Roland Martin? (I hadn't been aware of it. Thought he was cool during the 2008 presidential election. Sorry about this.)

For starters, r11.

Just google Roland Martin suspended.

R7, Piers Morgan is one of CNN's highest-rated shows. Why would they get rid of him?

And while I don't like him as much as Larry King, he has to be given credit for doing a lot of shows on the issue of gun violence.

P.Morgan averages anywhere from 400,000 to 600,000 viewers a night.

That, my friend, is positively shitty.

Monday night he pulled in 400,000.

As much as I loathe Roland Martin, I find it disappointing that the networks seem to be purging women and minorities from their rosters.

Case in point: Joy-Ann Reid has been highly praised for her analysis on MSNBC, and she's even gotten a Meet the Press appearance based on her brilliance...yet the same names are always floated for opportunities at the network (Chris Hayes, Ezra Klein, Steve Kornacki, and Ari Melber).

Sometimes Morgan doesn't even get 400,000... whereas King consistently pulled in over a million a night.
