Accuracy in Media

CBS fired legal executive Hayley Geftman-Gold for comments she made on Facebook about not being sympathetic toward victims of the Las Vegas shooting because they were likely Republicans.

“If they wouldn’t do anything when children were murdered, I have no hope that Repugs will ever do the right thing,” Geftman-Gold wrote. “I’m actually not even sympathetic bc country music fans often are Republican gun-toters.”

The attack by Stephen Paddock at a country music festival killed 59 people and left more than 500 injured at last count according to authorities.

CBS issued a statement on Geftman-Gold saying, “This individual, who was with us for approximately one year, violated the standards of our company and is no longer an employee of CBS. Her views as expressed on social media are deeply unacceptable to all of us at CBS. Our hearts go out to the victims in Las Vegas and their families.”
