ATLANTA, GEORGIA (ALBOENEWS) — CNN announced Thursday that they have cut ties with Jeffrey Lord after he tweeted the phrase “Sieg Heil!” in response to Angelo Carusone.
The tweet stemmed from an article that Lord had posted on Twitter criticizing Carusone which had an error in its headline. Carusone replied to the tweet, saying “Your headline has a mistake in it. Why do you expect anyone to take you seriously when you don’t take yourself seriously.” This then prompted Lord’s “Sieg Heil!” tweet.
Lord is a columnist for The American Spectator, and was a well- known commentator for CNN.
