A CNN analyst used the death of a Fox News cameraman in Ukraine to post a set of tweets so “cruel” that it triggered bipartisan blowback, with even left-wingers who “hate Fox News” calling for her to be fired and saying she ought to feel ashamed of herself.

Yet New Yorker staff writer and CNN global affairs analyst Susan Glasser still remained employed as of Wednesday morning.

In fact, hours after Glasser posted the “cruel” tweets early Tuesday afternoon, she appeared on CNN to offer her “analysis” and wasn’t asked a single question about her tweets.

Critics say it was as if either the CNN hosts she spoke with, Victor Blackwell and Alisyn Camerota, hadn’t heard about the tweets, didn’t care about the tweets or perhaps even agreed with the tweets.

As previously reported, Glasser’s tweets provoked bipartisan anger, even from the types of people who think Fox News shows are “dung,” though to be clear, plenty of CNN haters chimed in as well:

Glasser wasn’t alone in her “cruelty.”

About an hour after she posted her tweets, The Washington Post “media critic” Margaret Sullivan — a woman who’s often compared to CNN’s Brian Stelter because of her very extreme bias — retweeted Glasser’s first tweet and wrote, “Summing it up succinctly.”

To Sullivan’s credit, she had the foresight to delete her tweet soon after, though screenshots still remain for posterity’s sake:

She too faced backlash:

As for Glasser’s original message, it stemmed from the establishment left and right’s frustration with Fox News host Tucker Carlson.

Carlson has been the only commentator in the entire national media to challenge the prevailing narratives surrounding the conflict in Ukraine.

However, Carlson’s observations have also been reflected by a large number of non-establishment journalists, commentators and public figures, notably Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Glenn Greenwald and former congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard:
