Is Omarosa Banned From CNN?

Aug 20, 2018  •  Post A Comment

Omarosa Manigault Newman, the former “Apprentice” contestant and Trump White House aide who has been making the rounds of the news shows hawking her new book “Unhinged,” appears to be having trouble getting booked on CNN.

The New York Post’s Page Six quotes an insider saying: “Don Lemon was offered one of the first cable interviews and passed.”

“We’re told Manigault Newman was also scheduled to appear on Jake Tapper’s ‘State of the Union’ on Sunday, but CNN canceled the appearance,” The Post adds. “Another source said CNN was initially only interested in booking commentators who would trash-talk the reality-show vixen.”

That source is quoted saying: “They only wanted to book guests with nothing positive to say about her. They were specifically looking for people who would provide a more negative slant when discussing Omarosa.”


  1. I do not believe this article. CNN is doing everything in their power to destroy Trump and Omarosa is someone leading the charge. Something doesn’t smell right here.

  2. Everything about this is clearly true. Watching CNN last week, it was clear that something smelled fishy. All the discussion was dismissive and led with she’s not credible despite the tapes.

    One would suspect that April Ryan lobbied those of her ilk at CNN to blow off Omarosa.

    The irony of this attitude is that CNN books whites from the administration with consequential credibility issues. Yet they have decided to try to bury Omarosa.

    Typical..crabs in the barrel and one is not surprised that the effort is probably led by black contributors on CNN.

  3. I agree OBI NAIJA….I watch daily and last week I couldn’t understand why they were brushing her off the way they did. I had to go to MSNBC and CBS just to hear what she had to say. They are purposely ignoring her. I understand she has “credibility” issues BUT tapes don’t lie. I was sure that after she started playing tapes that they would have her on the show but they proved me wrong. This is so unlike CNN. You comment is so on point!

  4. CNN saw that she was not credible. They wanted to let MSNBC ride the Omarosa wave and look stupid as the big tapes didn’t appear and the ones she did provide didn’t solidly support her interpretations of the tapes. After the latest ratings of the news networks, CNN sees that MSNBC is their real competitor right now, and their programming is going to avoid the people like Omarosa who have little credibility. They will let MSNBC continue to lose its credibility as a news organization. CNN is taking the long view of being the left side of center news channel, rather than just a shill for the Democratic party. As the country moves more left over the next few years, this will be seen as a smart move.
