Michael Oren left on his own

There has been a lot of speculation on the possibility that CNN dropped their Middle East analyst, Michael Oren, who was formerly the Israeli ambassador to the US. However, earlier today, a report by Politico’s Dylan Byers says otherwise.

In a statement to Politico, a CNN spokesperson said:

[Oren had in fact] requested that CNN suspend his agreement with the network so that he would be free to support and defend Israel before the international community during the current Gaza upheaval. CNN agreed to Ambassador Oren’s request to suspend the contract and he has continued to appear on our air as a guest.
