CNN’s objectivity is being called into question after the wife of contributor Errol Louis tweeted an image of host Don Lemon partying it up with Stormy Daniels’ lawyer, Michael Avenatti.
In fact, there are several contributors to the network taking part in what Juanita Scarlett describes as a “soirée.”
“Thrilled to have met @MichaelAvenatti at the Sag Harbor soirée of my second favorite on air journalist @donlemon,” she wrote.
Lemon purchased a place in Sag Harbor nearly two years ago.
Also featured and tagged in the photo are her husband Louis, and contributor Margaret Hoover.
It didn’t take long for Scarlett to realize the image compromised the network’s objectivity. The tweet quickly came down and her account was protected.
Fortunately, the internet is forever.
It’s okay. I saved that deleted tweet of CNN hosts partying it up with Avenatti. Why would such a thing need to be deleted? pic.twitter.com/iutCtnwaxi

Avenatti has been a major presence on every mainstream media network as he peddles in lies and half-truths on behalf of his porn star client. Nowhere more so than at CNN where he has been interviewed over 74 times in the past 10 weeks.
“They’re putting him on there as a political advocate, and with the regularity, the frequency … it’s astounding how often they want him,” former White House Press Secretary Ari Fleischer said.
And now we know they even ‘want him’ after work hours too.
Is that.. Is that journalist Don Lemon getting his drank on with Avenatti? https://t.co/1LMzlxtK2A

Scarlett tried to downplay the controversy by saying it was simply a case of ‘worlds colliding.’
It would be ‘worlds colliding’ if they accidentally met at the local supermarket, not at the home of the journalist in question.
“It was mostly in jest,” she wrote while urging everybody to “calm down.”
Calm down. It was mostly in jest. Sometimes worlds collide. Goodnight Twitter.

This is the same media that told us Fox News host Sean Hannity using Trump lawyer Michael Cohen for legal advice and failing to mention it was the end of the world.
In fact, CNN’s own Anderson Cooper led that charge, setting his hair on fire over the Cohen/Hannity news, whining that the Fox pundit acted “as if he had absolutely no connection to the story.”
Where will Cooper’s outrage be now that his colleagues are partying it up with one of their more prominent interviewees and developers of the Stormy Daniels narrative?
