This is absolutely insane . Why on earth would you hire a right-wing hack to oversee political coverage in 2020? You just gave every Democrat in the country a reason to doubt your objectivity.
Journalistically, this is indefensible. Yes, folks left and right may snark that CNN isn’t journalism, but there are many professionals who work and report there. They are tarnished by this. Hiring this person as a paid pundit would have been questionable.

Donald Trump being in office is good for CNN executives and for the executives at the larger AT&T conglomerate, and they are hiring Jeff Sessions’ top flack to help run their 2020 coverage.

This is a solid hire, ⁦
Cripes, , you are now a joke. Hiring someone who is a Trump aide, a spokesperson for JEFF FREAKING SESSIONS, and someone with no experience in journalism, to be your 2020 political editor? Cripes.
A political operative with no experience in journalism who used to work in the Trump administration will be a political editor for CNN focusing on campaign coverage.
Why would a major news organization hire someone with literally no journalism experience to oversee their political coverage?
Why not appoint a journalist, editor or someone without obvious conflict-of-interest? This is soooooo bad. #CNNFail
