CNN Cuts off NABJ's Funding

A week ago, FTVLive told you that the National Association of Black Journalist has issued a statement this week condemning the treatment of black employees at CNN.

“I know CNN is going through layoffs, but the departure of so many African Americans is worrisome," said NABJ President Bob Butler.

CNN refused to comment about NABJ's claims, but they did do something else.

The cable news network withdrew their financial support of the NABJ's 2015 Convention and Career Fair.

Butler told NABJ's Board of Directors that their request to CNN for support was denied.
