Elise Labott CNN Career

Elise Labott employment history with the CNN has it that she was once suspended. That was in 2015 when she posted on social media, a message supporting Syrian refugees. She tweeted:

“House passes bill that could limit Syrian refugees. Statue of Liberty bows head in anguish.” 

Though Labbott’s comment was re-tweeted over two thousand times and liked over three thousand times, CNN suspended her citing that her ability to be viewed as the objective is compromised.

She later apologised with another tweet that said:

“Everyone, It was wrong of me to editorialise. My tweet was inappropriate and disrespectful. I sincerely apologise.”

Disregarding that, Ms Labott is having a smooth career with the television news channel. A CNN profile of her highlighted that she has interviewed and travelled the world with five Secretaries of State.

She was also credited for reporting many major global events like:

  1. The Camp David peace talks of 2000;
  2. The September 11 terrorist attacks and the Arab Spring;
  3. The Palestinian civil unrest and Israeli war with Lebanon in 2006;
  4. Pakistan’s state of emergency in 2007;
  5. The war between Russia and Georgia;
  6. And Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice’s historic trip to Libya in 2007.
