“We're applauding CNN for naming Ramon Escobar as Vice President of Diversity and Inclusion for CNN Worldwide. It sounds like CNN will be reaching out to conservatives as they are a diverse segment of the American people. At a time when other networks are showing conservaphobia, CNN will be a trail blazer for the largest segment of the American population that heretofore have been censored and ignored.

We, like the American Eskimo, look forward to a meaningful dialogue with CNN.”
