Ex-MSNBCer Joan Walsh Announces That She’ll Now Be Working For CNN


It has been a whirlwind past couple of days for progressive political analyst Joan Walsh.

The former Salon editor-in-chief and current Nation correspondent announced late last week that she had suddenly been let go by MSNBC as a paid contributor after working for the network for years. MSNBC’s decision to cut ties with the well-known progressive commentator not only led to widespread liberal outrage but also criticism from a number of MSNBC hosts.

On Saturday evening, Walsh took to Twitter to announce that she had been hired by CNN.

She also expressed gratitude for those who supported her in the wake of her MSNBC dismissal and offered up congratulations on her CNN hiring.

A CNN spokesperson has confirmed that Walsh will indeed be joining the network as a political commentator.
