THIS IS CNN: CNN Contributor ‘Anonymous’ Will Remain With Network After Lying On Air.

CNN contributor Miles Taylor will remain with the network despite lying on the air about being the anonymous administration official who wrote a book condemning President Donald Trump.

A CNN spokesman said Wednesday that Taylor would stay on, the same day he identified himself as “Anonymous,” the author of the book A Warning in 2019 and a New York Times op-ed in 2018. In both, he slammed Trump as tempestuous and unfit for office. Taylor also boasted in the op-ed he was one of the “senior officials” working to “frustrate parts of his agenda and his worst inclinations.”

Taylor was an aide to former homeland security secretary Kirstjen Nielsen before resigning last year, and he joined CNN as a contributor in September. However, Taylor lied to anchor Anderson Cooper on Aug. 21 when he denied being “Anonymous.”

“I wear a mask for two things, Anderson: Halloweens and pandemics, so no,” he said.

Hey, it’s CNN, so he won’t be alone as a contributor who has lied on air or on social media:

‘Please Think About Others:’ Chris Cuomo Pretends He Didn’t Break Quarantine Already.

Anderson Cooper says Twitter account hacked after tweet calling Trump a ‘pathetic loser.’

Not a Joke: Dan Rather on [CNN’s] ‘Reliable Sources’ Slamming Trump’s ‘Fantasy Land.’

Stelter Claims Left-Wing Media Not Dedicated to ‘Tearing Down Trump.’

UPDATE: “When reached by a reporter via email, the former DHS official directed them instead to contact his agents with United Talent Agency, a Los Angeles–based firm that recently signed Paris Hilton.”
