People watching WSB-TV in Georgia this week may have been stunned listening to certain comments from political analyst Bill Crane, but they can sleep soundly tonight knowing what the station’s general manager and vice president did to resolve the situation.
According to the Washington Examiner. After claiming former President Donald Trump had an “orange face” on television, a political analyst and commentator from a Georgia news station was fired on Monday.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that Crane made his comment on Trump on WSB-TV on Sunday while discussing the investigation the Fulton County District Attorney’s office is conducting regarding the 2020 election results in Georgia.
In response to Crane’s remarks, Ray Carter, Vice President and General Manager of WSB-TV, issued a statement announcing Crane’s termination, saying, “During Sunday evening’s Channel 2 Action News at 6:00, Bill Crane, a frequent guest as an outside third-party political analyst, uttered remarks about former President Donald Trump that are not aligned with our commitment to fair and unbiased reporting and analysis. As a result, we’re ending our relationship with Mr. Crane, effective immediately.”
Crane apologized on social media, but did not apologize for his analysis, saying “perhaps in my verbiage I certainly could have been a bit more PC.” He also said that his goal as a commentator is to “call the hard balls and strikes on either side, and attempt to do so with a bit of humor, sarcasm, the occasional pun and tongue in cheek.”
Before joining WSB-TV in 2006, Crane provided political analysis for 11Alive from 2000 to 2006.
This analyst should have known better than to try and use the left’s favorite insult against President Trump on live TV. Not only did he come across looking foolish, but he also demonstrated his clear bias. Maybe this will be a wake up call to leftist pundits who portray themselves as unbiased experts. The American people are seeing through your lies and deceit, and we aren’t going to put up with it anymore.
