CNN's new political editor pushed conspiracy theories about Planned Parenthood that were based on misleadingly edited videos
I would like to see CNN fact-check this dubious claim from their new political editor
Sarah Isgur's defense of Trump's Muslim ban was whatabout Obama
CNN's new political editor blamed Obama for stuff he had absolutely nothing to do with
This person will shape CNN 2020 coverage of reproductive rights issues
CNN's new political editor thought this was an appropriate thing to tweet even though she worked as a DOJ spokesperson at the time
CNN's new political editor thinks Kellyanne Conway embodies "real feminism"
Sarah Isgur, CNN's new political editor, thinks journalists accurately pointing out that Trump spent years pushing a racist conspiracy about Obama is a reason "why voters have lost trust in reporters to give unbiased accounts."
LOL. CNN's new political editor -- tasked with coordinating political coverage for the 2020 cycle for TV and digital -- once smeared her new employer as the "Clinton News Network."
CNN hired a Republican operative with no journalism experience to run its 2020 coverage vox.com/2019/2/19/1823…
Isgur, who will oversee CNN's 2020 coverage, reportedly "kowtowed to Trump" & pledged loyalty to his agenda in order to get the job as Jeff Sessions' spox.

CNN's decision to hire this person as one of their top political news staffers is beyond belief. thehill.com/homenews/admin…
A CNN spox emailed me to say they “just wanted to be super clear – Sarah is not leading, overseeing, or running political coverage.”

“She is helping to coordinate coverage across TV and Digital – she is one of several editors." vox.com/2019/2/19/1823…
CNN sent me on-record email saying "We can confirm that Sarah will be joining CNN as POLITICAL EDITOR next month."

They also confirmed Isgur won't cover DOJ, will be coordinating political coverage for 2020 campaign cycle, & will sometimes appear on air.
Semantics aside, what CNN hasn’t explained is why they thought it was a good idea to hire GOP operative with a taste for conspiracy theories & no journalism experience to coordinate network’s coverage during a presidential cycle featuring her former boss.
