CNN prez Jeff Zucker defends Don Lemon’s “n-word” sign

In a town hall conducted on Wednesday, CNN Worldwide president Jeff Zucker was asked about Don Lemon’s n-word sign on CNN Tonight from back in June. Although chief international correspondent Christiane Amanpour condemned Lemon’s usage, and former HLN news anchor Richelle Carey publicly mocked Lemon, Zucker is on Lemon’s side.

Conceding that it isn’t appropriate for every day usage, a CNN insider said, according to TheWrap, “Zucker said it’s not something for a daily basis, but Don was trying to make a point.”
