CNN has now reportedly been hit with another major controversy.
Jake Tapper’s senior producer has now reportedly been fired from the liberal news network after being romantically involved with a subordinate according to a new report.
According to a source within CNN complaints were made regarding Federico Quadrani’s, and last Wednesday, someone provided firsthand evidence of Quadrani’s improper relationship with a subordinate to Tapper.
The CNN anchor then went to human resources and notified bosses at the network, and by Friday, his top producer had been sacked.
The Post described Quadrani as Tapper’s “right hand man” who has worked with the CNN host for a decade.
Tapper joined CNN in 2013 after working at ABC News.
Quadrani’s firing comes nearly a year after former CNN president Jeff Zucker was fired for failing to report his consensual relationship with Allison Gollust, a fellow senior CNN executive who departed shortly after Zucker.
CNN employees are allegedly stunned that a high-powered producer could be so negligent, especially considering the manner Zucker was thrown out for a similar violation.
Quadrani joined CNN in 2013 and is the creator and executive producer of “The Lead.”
He joined CNN from MSNBC and previously worked for NBC News’ “Today” show, where Zucker was his supervisor. The long-time TV news veteran also worked for ABC News for six years.
Current CNN CEO Chris Licht has been on a campaign to free the network of the “spectacle” that plagued it under prior administration. He has parted ties with CNN’s veteran senior legal expert Jeffrey Toobin, as well as left-wing White House reporter John Harwood.
