Open letter to Reza Aslan: come write for Scholars & Rogues
We can offer you one thing CNN can’t.
CNN has parted ways with Reza Aslan, whose “profane” anti-Trump tweets were widely criticized earlier this week.
In case you missed it, Aslan called Donald a “piece of shit” in a tweet reacting to Trump’s cynical travel ban grandstanding after the recent Manchester bombing.
At Scholars & Rogues, we’re not big fans of CNN, and this little dustup doesn’t change our minds.
So Reza, if you’re reading this, we’d like to invite you to come work with us at S&R.
We realize this would be a bit of a change for you. We don’t have any money. Our audience is in the hundreds, not the millions (although we have a fantastic quality:quantity ratio). We don’t have groupies. There’s no power here, no glory, no budget or resources and no real hope of any.
Of course, the great thing about not having advertisers is not having to worry about losing them.
We can offer one thing CNN can’t, though: we promise we’ll never fire you for telling the truth.
Let me know.
