Jim's twitter page has gone from twitter. All I got instead was the follow message: Sorry, that page does not exist!

What is going on?

 

I wonder if it has something to do  with this story:

CNN needs to stand up for Jim. Anyone with a passing knowlege of biology knows that the word cripple refers to a lame animal - the context in which he used the word.

Yes, he is in trouble. He's currently been put on leave while management decides what to do with him. Unless they've already decided.

Wait, what happened with Jim Clancy? What is this controversy?

Gosh, it seems like everyone is out to get him. :sarcastic:  I can't even understand the whole Twitter row, it seems like both sides have something against what he tweeted.

 

We know how poor Octavia Nasr ended her CNN career and I won't be surprised if the same happens here.

I'm afraid CNN won't save him, but I didn't even know about any of this until he deleted his twitter, so I'm still in shock.

I see. Theey aren't after him for his herd remark but because he isn't towing the party line on Israel.

MRC Newsbusters is run by far right wingers. That article even attacks "Princess Rym Ali". Well, to that writer: Princess Rym was formerly Rym Brahimi, one of CNN's best foreign and war correspondents ever. So it's a bad thing to them that Jim Clancy went to speak at her highly regarded Jordan Media Institute? Not like they weren't coworkers for years.

And the Ruderman Family Foundation. Well, turns out its not really about lame animals is it? Again, they are after him because he doesn't blindly support Israel.

 

 

All CNNers should stop using Twitter.

Unfortunately this gives CNNi the perfect excuse to sack him.

He's one of the best.

What a bunch of spineless pathetic pandering hypocrits that run CNN.

They'd be ashamed of themselves if they had any moral fiber or self awareness, especially after the last week of extolling "Free Speech".

 

Assh***s.

Sums up my sentiments. I'm waiting for the next pretty face they hire...

 

I'm glad that I left the network.

I feel very sad for the way CNN ditched Jim, all because of a twitter. It’s amazing that after 34 years working at CNN and after he has done an amazing work, all these years, they kick him out this way.  He deserved more respect for the entire work he has done at CNN.

A twitter is more important the 34 years of devoted work? Shame on you CNN.

What a dirty bunch of coward who brush off plagiarism and lack of journalistic integrity but throw their hands up for a silly little Twitter exchange. I'm utterly disgusted
