Former Jeff Sessions’ spokeswoman Sarah Isgur was originally hired by CNN as a politics editor, and was announced to be a part of the team coordinating the coverage of the 2020 election.
After some intense backlash, however, Isgur has announced instead of joining the team as an editor, she instead will premiere as a political analyst. In her original announcement, Isgur was said to provide some analysis, but primarily focus on being a political editor.
Not so, now.
She tweeted on Friday: “It’s been a great vacation but I am back on twitter! And news: I will go to CNN as a Political Analyst instead. Will start next month on air and on line. See y’all soon!”
She was set to start working at CNN next week. But a network spokeswoman indicated that Isgur proposed a shift away from the editor role, reports CNN’s Brian Stelter.
“We can confirm that when Sarah came to us and proposed her role be adjusted to a political analyst instead, we agreed and we look forward to her starting in that role,” the CNN spokeswoman said Friday afternoon.
