CNN then gave Labott Thanksgiving week off, with one more for good measure, amounting to a two-week suspension.

Labott herself posted appropriate contrition.

“Everyone, It was wrong of me to editorialize. My tweet was inappropriate and disrespectful. I sincerely apologize,” she wrote.

Readers remained unconvinced that all was now objective at CNN.

What a joke,” commented a Newsmax poster under the name soapy jeansy. “ALL of CNN correspondents are bias. Its way too late for CNN to portray themselves as journalist, lol. Corrupt Network News has revealed its blatant bias repeatedly by covering for Obama, omitting pertinent facts, falsely editing tapes to fit the lefts narrative etc. Adios CNN.”
