A strange thing happened on CNN on Saturday May 3 prior to the White House Correspondents’ Dinner. CNN host Don Lemon, appearing alongside Professor Marc Lamont Hill professed his admiration for the Nation of Islam, a well-known hate group. Lemon proclaimed that Hill thinks he “look[s] like a member of the Nation if Islam. That’s okay. I like them. I live on 123rd Street. They’re always at 125th Street subway stop and I buy my Final Call.” Video cross-posted here at NewsBusters.
