CNN say its journalist risk more than veterans

CNN Tonight host Don Lemon told viewers on Thursday that being a journalist is more dangerous than being a U.S. soldier fighting in a war zone.

In an unhinged rant to viewers, Lemon and CNN Contributor Brian Karem claimed that journalists risk more for America than any veteran ever has. reports: “Well, it shows you the dangers of this job,” Lemon began.

“So many people throw out terms about journalists and say really derogatory things about journalists, but our jobs are very dangerous and many times we go into a war zone,” Lemon continued. “This turned into a war zone today without anyone having to go overseas and put on flak jackets.”

Karem then chimed in, “I’ve served in a war zone and it didn’t feel like this. I got a couple of of threats today after the shooting. People saying I don’t deserve to breathe air and that — why am I alive.”

He continued, “And they send it to our newspaper and they send them to other newspapers. And that’s the new reality in which we live.”

Karem then compared journalism in the United States to “the ranks of Russia and third world nations where reporters lives aren’t safe.”
