CNN, Turner Broadcasting and its parent company Time Warner are facing a number of lawsuits alleging racial discrimination by former and current African-American employees.
One of those lawsuits was filed in October by former CNN employee Omar Butcher.
Butcher, a devout Christian, has accused the network of religious and racial discrimination. He worked at CNN for five years until he was fired in 2015.
Edward D. Buckley, Butcher’s attorney, explained the former CNN employee first started with the network as a writer and was “repeatedly passed over for advancement opportunities and training opportunities.”
