CNN insiders rubbed the wrong way by return of Toobin after workplace masturbation scandal

"The way [the network] brought him back on air was a bit inappropriate in terms of a full segment of mea culpa and then a hard pivot to his legal analysis on air."

CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin made his return to the news yesterday after choking his chicken last October in front of his colleagues at the New Yorker.

If that sentence seems abrupt, that's because the situation itself was.

After Toobin worked with the outlet for 27 years, his career imploded in one afternoon. But not all are accepting of the Toobin comeback.

According to the Daily Beast, even some people at CNN were taken aback at Toobin's stroke of luck by his second chance.

CNN president Jeff Zucker was forgiving to give Toobin a second chance, along with efforts by Toobin's friends willing to blow their horns.

One female CNN employee told the outlet she didn't like the move: "The way [the network] brought him back on air was a bit inappropriate in terms of a full segment of mea culpa and then a hard pivot to his legal analysis on air."

But according to another employee, the people on scene yesterday acted touched by Toobin's return: "They seemed happy he was back. It's invisible if people are grossed out because they wouldn’t be the ones to come up to him. The couple dozen in the newsroom seem happy to have him back."

"It's really atrocious that men who expose themselves on Zoom are welcomed back, yet a woman would be canceled in an instant," a Fox insider said. "Toobin's return shows that statements about investigations and making people feel 'safe at work' are nothing but lip service to shut people up."

When it comes to the Toobin case, Canadians understand. Liberal MP William Amos got caught twice in compromising situations over Zoom, after all.
