CNN: Drop Abusive Corey Lewandowski

Petition Background

CNN just hired former Donald Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski as a salaried pundit, even though Lewandowski has a long history of treating the media poorly, including being arrested for allegedly physically assaulting a reporter at an event.

Lewandowski has barred reporters from doing their jobs by placing them on "blacklists" and threatening reporters who left the "press pen" the campaign requires them to report from. Reports indicate he cursed at and pushed CNN reporter Noah Gray for simply doing his job.

And in March, Lewandowski was "charged with misdemeanor battery for forcibly grabbing reporter Michelle Fields as she tried to ask Trump a question following an event." [http://www.politico.com/blogs/on-media/2016/06/corey-lewandowski-to-join-cnn-224733#ixzz4CR9qREzd]
