CNN Reporter on Leave After ‘Serious Fall,’ Internal Investigation

Longtime CNN anchor Jim Sciutto will not appear on his weekly morning show for some time after he was reportedly ordered to take a “personal leave.”

A media source told the Daily Mail Sciutto would be taking time off from the network after the anchor did not appear on the Tuesday or Wednesday episodes of “CNN Newsroom.” Sciutto’s most recent article was published Monday.

Last month, The Daily Beast’s Confider reported that Sciutto was the subject of a CNN internal investigation earlier this year after he took a “serious fall” in Amsterdam.

Sciutto had been returning home from a reporting trip to Ukraine to cover Russia’s invasion when the incident occurred, according to the September exclusive report.

“Despite colleagues taking direct flights home from Poland, Sciutto and his producer made a stopover in the Dutch capital where the accident occurred. We hear Sciutto has since recovered from the incident but has been directed by CNN to address a ‘personal situation,’” Confider said.

Sciutto traveled to Ukraine in February, March and April of this year.

On May 1, Sciutto posted a photo of Poland, where CNN correspondents were being flown out from after covering the war.

CNN has been suffering a tumultuous year. Chris Cuomo was fired from the network for allegedly aiding his brother, disgraced Gov. Andrew Cuomo, with his scandals. Jeff Zucker resigned a CNN’s president just a few weeks later after carrying on an affair with an executive.

On Monday, former president Donald Trump filed a $475 million lawsuit against the media company after claiming that the network had carried out a “campaign of libel and slander” against him.

    Amsterdam? Perhaps he was so baked he couldn’t stay upright.

      Employees at CNN may need to use drugs and alcohol in order to to numb their consciences? Working for a liberal Fake News company that’s trying to destroy your own country might be hard to accept for those at CNN who may actually still possess a moral compass.

    In an ideal world, Trump would win enough in his lawsuit to force CNN into bankruptcy and off the airwaves.

    The two of them probably stopped in Amsterdam for the weird and open Sex stores they have their. Or Ive been told. And why would he be under “Investigation” for falling down ? Falling down drunk ???
