Fake News CNN: Two Weeks After Its Founder Was Forced Out, Hate Organization SPLC's President Resigns

I don't doubt this story -- but CNN is fake news, and should always be identified as being fake news, or the Conspiracy News Network.

You can only trust this story because it comes almost entirely through press release.

Southern Poverty Law Center President Richard Cohen is stepping down from the nonprofit activist group, less than two weeks after co-founder Morris Dees was fired.

Cohen's resignation follows the March 13 ouster of Dees, a co-founder of the Alabama-based SPLC that is known for tracking civil rights and hate crimes in the United States.

"We've heard from our staff that we need to do a better job of making sure that our workplace embodies the values we espouse -- truth, justice, equity, and inclusion," Cohen said his statement.

"We're going to do that, and we have brought in Michelle Obama's former Chief of Staff, Tina Tchen, to help us do it."

Tina Tchen, you say? Say, isn't she in the news for other reasons lately?

She sure has a lot of dirty little fingers in a lot of dirty little pies.

Last Monday, the SPLC announced "an immediate, top-to-bottom external review of our workplace culture and our past practices and policies."

"The events of the last week have been an eye-opening reminder that the walk towards justice must sometimes start at your own front door and force you to look at your past so you can improve your future," SPLC board chairman Bryan Fair said in a statement at the time.

Does this suggest Cohen is blamed for having turned a blind eye or even covered-up whatever it is Dees was doing? (Speculation in the press includes harassment of female employees and even racism.)

(Okay, so I've had some posts that just kept getting pushed back due to the torrent of news since Sunday. Now I'm going to start unloading some of these pieces. They're a little stale, but stick them in the microwave with a sprinkle of water for 20 seconds, and they're fine.)
