Without mentioning him by name on Monday, Fox News colleagues Megyn Kelly and Gregg Jarrett expressed concerns over CNN host Don Lemon’s ability to be impartial following Lemon’s tete-a-Tweet with Jarrett this past weekend over the verdict in the Michael Dunn murder trial.
“This is an anchor who set aside all measure of objectivity, and he acted, on-air, as judge, jury and executioner,” Jarrett said of Lemon. “Condemning the defendant, saying he was guilty, and it was an open-and-shut case. My goodness.”
Jarrett did not comment on whether he felt his refusal to respect Chelsea Manning’s gender transition, or his on-air encouragement of the U.S. to bomb Russia over granting asylum to Edward Snowden, or his on-air suggestion that George Zimmerman had already been punished because of his weight gain during his own murder trial met that same standard of objectivity.
