CNN suspends Donna Brazile’s contract

Following the news that Donna Brazile has been named interim chair of the Democratic National Committee through the November election, CNN has decided to suspend its contributor agreement with Brazile. ABC, which also had Brazile under contract, has suspended its contributor arrangement with her, as well.

In a statement, CNN said, “With news of Donna Brazile stepping in as interim chair for the Democratic National Committee, CNN and Brazile have mutually agreed to temporarily suspend her contract as a contributor for the network effective immediately. As a valued voice and commentator, CNN will revisit the contract once Brazile concludes her role.”

CNN media correspondent Brian Stelter reports that Brazile will continue to appear on CNN’s air this week for convention coverage, but as a guest and newsmaker, not as a paid contributor.
