"CLEVELAND, Ohio -- CNN fired Jeffrey Lord Thursday after the conservative commentator and staunch defender of President Trump tweeted a Nazi salute at a liberal opponent."

A few hours later, he was out at CNN.

"Nazi salutes are indefensible. Jeffrey Lord is no longer with the network," CNN said in a statement.

Too bad. I think we need more similar salutes to demonstrate just how crazy the alt.right is.

If you read the article, you see he was having a twitter fight with another guy. Lord was basically calling the guy a nazi for his ideas - he wasn't praising him with a nazi salute.

That's no reason to fire a guy. Fire him because he's an @#$%& or a bad talking head, but this is stupid.

How many times has one of us called someones ideas fascist? How would you feel if you boss read it and fired you?

Should Speedy lose his job over this post? [forums.macresource.com]

I'm not Speedy's boss, but my guess is that if Speedy's job involved his online presence and activity, and his online reputation reflected on his employer's image, then if he did something to damage the company, he might be fired.

What part of the "Don't Godwin" part of his contract did he not grasp? That alone makes him a terrible talking head.
