CNN hires a former Trump official with no journalism experience to help run its 2020 campaign coverage
Sarah Isgur has worked for Mitt Romney, Ted Cruz, Carly Fiorina and most recently as spokesperson for former Attorney General Jeff Sessions. At CNN -- which she once referred to as "Clinton News Network" -- Isgur will serve as one of several political editors coordinating 2020 campaign coverage. As Politico points out: "While it is common for departing administration officials to join cable news networks as analysts or contributors, it is less common for them to oversee news coverage. Isgur has no experience in news but a long history as a political operative, most recently with the Trump administration and the Fiorina campaign." ALSO: CNN staffers are said to be "demoralized" by Isgur's hiring.
