CNN Reporter's Video of Her Layoff Goes Viral

CNN Reporter's Video of Her Layoff Goes Viral

CNN is going through some tough times and making massive layoffs -- and one reporter who got a pink slip decided she wouldn't go quietly (or without some office supplies).

Former Capitol Hill reporter Lisa Desjardins is just one person who was let go. She made a departure video that is going viral because she wasn't going to exit without letting everyone know how she felt about the company after nine years of employment.

Lisa explains that she's had to read a lot of goodbye emails in the last six months, and she even went ahead and compressed them using the world cloud.

In the mass goodbyes, she saw a 'glaring theme': "We, my friends, are a darned nice group. Disgustingly nice on the way out. This worried me, so I dug in -- and dug up -- some emails."

She looked at the difference between the sweet, company-wide mass emails, and the personal ones in which people really aired their grievances. As one can imagine, there were fewer "thanks!" and more "sucks."

In the video, Lisa says, 'I hand in my badge with very few regrets, but one of them is that there are just far too few redheads on CNN, so to my fellow gingers I am sorry I failed you.'

If CNN wasn't such a cheerleading organization for BO and lied to Americans on a regular basis it might have a chance against FOX. They saw what happened to msnbc with the way they handled the "news", not to mention their coverage of the airliner disappearance for months. "Black holes?"

Leaving the Clinton News Network/Certainly Not the News allows her to get a real job. Or will she end up at the Marxist-Socialist National Barack Channel?

She's is going to be a Frau Goebbels, I'm going to be the Fuhrer. You got any guns, let us know for you cannot have any guns that way our Tiger tanks won't have to blow you away. And this time we control the air so forget anything from being able to stop the coming of SS Amerika! Think in reality the Greed of the Elite is dooming us all and a World War thrown in that to boot. The Elite need things as a 100 fork and spoon collections. If they just got 99 they will use all the cannon-fodder available to get that 100th.

She did good for speaking out. CNN is nothing but one long pep rally for that obama mess who has lowered the bar on the military, marriage, dumbing down our youth with political correctness and weakning America. And no that awful feminist cult member hillery clinton would NOT be any better.

Uh, yeah, except that her future prospective employer might not want to hire her for her vindictive behavior, eh? Also, theft of company property (i.e., office supplies). You think THAT is good....eh hum.....She most definitely is acting like a true hypocritical lib. But documenting it on video, that is just plain stooooooooooooooopiddddddd!!! lol

notapclib, I am a liberal women, and I do have a problem with other women who are content with being treated like second-class citizens, content with being paid less than their male counterparts, and content with allowing a bunch of politicians to make medical decisions about what type of treatment they should receive.

skydrop: Especially redheads. She's a minority and redheads are clearly not being treated fairly. When is the last time you saw a demonstration concerning the mistreatment of redheaded employees?
