CNN’s Chris Cillizza Gets Roasted in Reddit AMA: ‘Why Do You Get Paid So Much?’

CNN’s Chris Cillizza did an AMA on Reddit this afternoon and it went about as well as you’d expect.

Cillizza is not the first CNNer to do a Reddit AMA––Jake Tapper and Don Lemon did AMAs a few years ago, for instance––but even before he started answering questions today, people started relentlessly dragging him:

Even other people in the industry had some questions for Cillizza too:

He did respond to a top question someone had bringing up a quote of his about assessing perception vs. reality in politics:

He also defended his recent piece “A second-by-second analysis of the Trump-Macron handshake”:

And he even replied to both Libby Watson‘s “Why do so many other journalists think you suck?” question and Ashley Feinberg‘s “How could you have possibly thought that this would be a good idea?” question:

You can check out the entire AMA for yourself here. Cillizza certainly thinks it went well:
