Jake Tapper’s senior producer fired over inappropriate behavior

Teddy Davis, senior producer for State of the Union with Jake Tapper, was dismissed today by CNN, reports the Hollywood Reporter, over claims of inappropriate behavior. At least three women have come forward.

“A comprehensive investigation was conducted as soon as this matter was brought to our attention. The behavior attributed to Mr. Davis does not align with the standards and values of CNN and Mr. Davis is no longer with the company,” a CNN spokesperson said in a statement Wednesday.

According to THR’s source, the network’s internal investigation into Davis surfaced instances of the producer making fellow colleagues uncomfortable.

There were no reports of physical or sexual assault.

Tapper said, “When CNN executives were told about these complaints, they reacted swiftly and appropriately, as they should. Workplaces need to be safe and I am fully supportive of CNN’s action.”
