Corey Lewandowski is worth a reported $500,000 to CNN

Just how much is CNN paying former Donald Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski to be a political commentator? According to sources speaking with The Daily Beast and the New York PageSix, CNN is paying Lewandowski a staggering $500,000 to appear on their air.

PageSix also reports that CNN president Jeff Zucker had been “drooling” about Lewandowski, which is clearly evident by his reported salary.

A rumor had circulated that CNN had offered Lewandowski a CNN gig prior to his thirty-minute interview with Dana Bash, but the network and Bash both deny that. A network spokesperson said, “It’s categorically not true that [Corey] Lewandowski was offered a job before doing interview with Dana Bash.” And Bash concurred with, “No discussions. No offer. Not accurate.”

A spokesperson denied to PageSix that Lewandowski is making $500,000.
