CNN's journalism watch-dog show Reliable Sources had an interesting segment Sunday morning on CNN contributor Roland Martin being suspended after GLAAD and others criticized him for some perceived antigay Super Bowl tweets. Lauren Ashburn and Frank Sesno made good points to host Howard Kurtz about how it is a "privilege," not a right to be on air and that Martin is a public figure whose irresponsible comments could have damaged CNN's brand as a reliable journalism organization with professional and ethical standards.
