We Need A Lemon Law For Don Lemon

I think it may be time for CNN to tell Don Lemon his services are no longer wanted.  He has gone way beyond the bounds of propriety by insinuating himself into the Ferguson situation.  As a "reporter" it was not his place to do so on air.  Whether or not he was reprimanded I don't know.  I haven't heard that he was.

But now.  His line of questioning with a woman who claims she was assaulted by Bill Cosby went even further beyond the pale.  Whether or not her accusations were true who knows.  She claims she was stoned at the time she was forced to preform oral sex. That was bad enough

Lemon then went on to ask why she didn't bite him. Such a  line of questioning has nothing to do with "news".  It is purely salacious and no reporter has any reason to go there.

Does he think he can get away with such actions because he is black and gay? Doe he think it gives him entitlement thinking no one will touch him because of who he is?  I certainly hope not because neither applies.  No more than if Mr. Cosby gets a pass because because of his celebrity.  Bad behavior is just that.

With the news of the day as bad as it is, we don't need a smart aleck reporter adding to it.  If that is his bent let him join trash television.  There is enough of it out there.  We deserve better from CNN.
