CNN’s Don Lemon and What You Wear on TV

From a New York Times story by Vanessa Friedman headlined “Don Lemon, Nikki Haley and the Lessons of a Hoodie”:

Don Lemon, a co-host of “CNN This Morning,” is still off the air, four days after apologizing on Twitter and internally for describing Nikki Haley on the show last Thursday as “past her prime.” His comment, while discussing her presidential bid, seemed to refer implicitly to the Republican candidate’s appearance and age in a derogatory and retrograde way, setting off a public firestorm that is still reverberating.

Mr. Lemon, of all people, should have known better.
