CNN Chyron ‘If Jews Are People’ Condemned



CNN is under fire for using a chyron which read “Alt-right founder questions if Jews are people.” The graphic aired during a panel discussion on whether or not the alt-right movement is anti-Semitic.

A chyron is that text or graphic news channels place at the bottom of the screen which either tell its viewers who the person being interviewed is or what subject is being discussed.

CNN regular Jake Tapper was off on Monday when the segment aired. But this has not stopped him from speaking out about it. The panel discussion was led by guest host Jim Sciutto. Many CNN’s regulars like Wolf Blitzer and Anderson Cooper are off this week for Thanksgiving.



Well social media has exploded over this the latest controversy revolving around the 2016 Presidential election. And this is just so important right now considering that nothing else is really happening these days. Whether or not CNN should be ashamed of itself for this chyron is clearly more important to discuss right now than Donald Trump’s potential Cabinet picks, senior White House staffers or his possible conflict of interests related to his businesses.

And who came up with the word chyron anyway? It sounds really silly. Maybe Trump can do something about that by executive order some day.

Jim Sciutto was also disappointed in the chyron. He made the following tweet.

So do you think that CNN was wrong for the chyron. Do you think that it was somehow anti-Semitic on the part of CNN? Do you care?

Well watch the video above and let us know.
