WATCH LIVE: TRUMP SPEAKS AT CORONAVIRUS TASK FORCE BRIEFING

After Backlash, Fmr. Trump Admin. DOJ Spox Reveals She Will Be a Political Analyst for CNN Instead of Editor

On Friday, Sarah Isgur Flores, the former top spokesperson for the U.S. Department of Justice under Attorney General Jeff Sessions, revealed she will not be a political editor for CNN and will instead be a political analyst.

She will start her new role next month:


CNN faced major backlash from people after Politico reported Isgur she was going to be a political editor, where she would coordinate political coverage for the 2020 election. Critics say her hiring was a poor move because she lacked experience in journalism.

The Daily Beast then reported CNN had assured Democrats she would “have no editorial decision-making control over the network’s coverage of the 2020 elections” as her job as a political editor. The assurance came after the network said she would also not participate in the Democratic primary debates.
