CNN has fired mainstream media TV host Don Lemon, who had worked for the network since 2006, kicking off a public dispute with the former anchor. Lemon claims to be “blindsided” by the decision. Much like Tucker Carlson’s firing, this looks like it’s shaping up to be some kind of psychological operation within the ruling class’s propaganda outlets.
Lemon was infamous for making everything about race. He had the uncanny ability to turn everything into a race issue and relate it to the color of his skin or someone else’s. Lemon took to Twitter to announce his firing on Monday, saying he was given no advance notice. He suggested the move was motivated by “larger issues at play,” without specifying what they might be, according to a report by RT.
“I was informed this morning by my agent that I have been terminated by CNN. I am stunned. After 17 years at CNN I would have thought that someone in management would have had the decency to tell me directly,” he said. “At no time was I ever given any indication that I would not be able to continue to do the work I have loved at the network.”
The propaganda work is rather important. But behavior modification of the slave class is equally important.

Don Lemon has an estimated net worth of $12 million and makes about $4 million per year propagating and probing up the establishment for the rulers. However, even with all that fiat currency paid to him, Lemon’s show ‘CNN This Morning’ has lagged behind its competitors in the ratings, though the network’s chairman Chris Licht nonetheless said he was “committed to its success” in a memo issued to employees announcing that “CNN and Don have parted ways.”
“Don Lemon’s statement about this morning’s events is inaccurate. He was offered an opportunity to meet with management but instead released a statement on Twitter,” the company said.

CNN CEO Chris Licht said in a statement that the network wishes him well and will cheer him on as he pursues future endeavors, echoing what he wrote in an email to CNN staffers obtained by USA TODAY. “To my CNN Colleagues, CNN and Don have parted ways. Don will forever be a part of the CNN family, and we thank him for his contributions over the past 17 years,” Licht said.
Lemon has been stirring up anger among the right over his political statement. He also makes sure to placate to the left as Tucker Carlson did to the right.
Considering these firings both happened the same day on each side of the political spectrum, it looks more and more like a psychological operation and the left vs. paradigm lie will continue as the masses further divide themselves. Stay alert. Don’t hero worship the propagandists of the ruling class and think for yourself.
These are interesting times, indeed.
