Conservative editors working for Breitbart get fired for tweeting an opinion about Muslims.

Progressive CNN presenters get fired for tweeting an opinion about President Trump.

Reza Aslan has been fired from CNN after calling Donald Trump “a piece of shit”.

The religious studies scholar also called the US President “an embarrassment to humankind”, in a since-deleted tweet.

On Friday the network announced it had dropped Mr Aslan’s show Believer, a non-fiction series launched earlier this year.

Mr Aslan apologised in a new tweet, saying: “I should not have used a profanity to describe the President when responding to his shocking reaction to the #LondonAttacks.”

But Mr Aslan didn’t totally back down.

I recognise that CNN needs to protect its brand as an unbiased news outlet,” he said in a statement. “Similarly, I need to honour my voice. I am not a journalist. I am a social commentator and scholar. And so I agree with CNN that it is best that we part ways.

It seems that the Clinton News Network ( CNN) is trying to rebrand itself as an unbiased news network while Breitbart is trying to rebrand itself as a mainstream media outlet.
