Can’t fault CNN for liberal bias. They hired Kaitlan Collins as a White House correspondent in 2017 — directly from her serving in the same post for the right-wing Daily Caller website that was founded by Fox News’ Tucker Carlson. Now the 26-year-old Collins is in trouble for a 2011 tweet calling someone a “fag” and another pondering, “Idk [I don’t know] if I wanna room with a lesbian” as a student at the University of Alabama.

The Log Cabin Republicans tweeted out screen shots of the offending messages. Collins responded, “It was immature but it doesn’t represent the way I feel at all.” But as an entertainment reporter in 2014 at the Daily Caller she did not abandon her biased ways, writing a derisive column mocking the short stature and appearance of US Senator Barbara Mikulski of Maryland.

Collins was suspended by the White House in July for shouting questions at the president and not leaving when told to — earning a statement of solidarity from the president of Fox News. Collins was trying to ask Trump if he felt betrayed by Michael Cohen, his former lawyer who is now cooperating with federal prosecutors.
