CNN severed ties with Jeffrey Lord Thursday after the commentator used the words “Sieg Heil!” as a sarcastic response to Media Matters president, Angelo Carusone, during their Twitter. spat.
“Nazi salutes are indefensible,” a CNN spokesperson said in a statement. “Jeffrey Lord is no longer with the network.”
Carusone was responding to Lord’s column where he referred to Media Matters as “Media Matters Fascists” and “anti-free speech bigots.”
Media Matters — aka Media Matters Fascists, the anti-free speech bigots who, in typical fascist style, make it their mission to shut down speech they don’t like — MMF’s Angelo Carusone has come to my Twitter feed to respond. Respond, that is, to my column nearby in which I shine the light of free speech on MMF’s latest attempt to get Sean Hannity off the air.
Mr. Carusone is not happy.
In a follow-up to his tweet, Lord said the Nazi slogan was a reference to another American Spectator column he wrote Wednesday, in which he blasted Media Matters for launching an advertising boycott against Fox News host Sean Hannity.
In that article, Lord said he was using the Nazi salute to compare Media Matters to fascism.
“The American Spectator has been unable to confirm reports that the original draft of this Media Matters revision ended with the words: ‘Seig Heil!’” Lord wrote.
“This is America, Angelo. Not Fascist Italy, Nazi Germany or Communist Russia,” Lord added.
Carusone subsequently tweeted Thursday that “CNN does not seem to hold Jeffrey Lord to any kind of standard.”
While Lord repeatedly contended he was “mocking Nazis and Fascists,” CNN cut ties with Lord.
“Why would I delete something that mocks the Fascists at Media Matters Fascists?” Lord asked.

SEAN HANNITY ATTACKED FOR SETH RICH COVERAGE! MEDIA MATTERS CALLING ADVERTISERS BOYCOTT…SOROS NEXT TARGET?
The back-from-the-grave Seth Rich murder case is freaking out the Democrat party and the liberal media and Sean Hannity is the only journalist on tv brave enough to pick up the story after establishment media declared the story as finished and not worth investigating. Hannity is now facing the consequence for his action. George Soros funded Media Matters is calling Sean Hannity advertisers to drop the Fox News veteran. If Seth Rich story is no big deal, why act scared?
Sean also said tonight, ‘Out of respect for the family’s wishes — for now — I am not discussing this matter at this time.’
Seth Rich family has threatened to sue private investigator Rod Wheeler who uncovered Seth Rich connection with Wikileaks. Hannity may be getting the same pressure from his family.
SEAN HANNITY (HOST): Also tonight, the unsolved murder of former DNC staffer Seth Rich continues to get a huge amount of attention. Now, I want to say something. I totally, completely understand how upset, how hard this is on this family, especially over the recent coverage of Seth’s death. Now, I have been communicating with them. I got a very heartfelt note. I also sent them a heartfelt note back. I reached out personally today to Seth’s brother, Aaron. I expressed my condolences over how hard , how difficult this has been for him and his family.
However, out of respect for the family’s wishes — for now — I am not discussing this matter at this time.
