Vester Flanagan Was Chastised for Wearing Obama Pin on Air


From the Daily Mail:

Warped TV reporter Vester Lee Flanagan exasperated bosses with his ‘stiff and nervous’ delivery, his inability to use a teleprompter – and by wearing a President Obama badge during an election report, Daily Mail Online can reveal.

Dennison also wrote to Flanagan in November 2012 to admonish him for wearing an Obama badge while reporting on voters hitting the poll booths for the US election.

‘It has come to my attention that while standing in line on Tuesday, preparing to vote, you were wearing a President Obama sticker on your clothing.’

Dennison described the badge as a clear violation of journalist ethics and company rules that ban employees from participating in partisan politics.

‘This demonstrated a basic lack of understanding of your role as an on-air journalist at the television station and poor judgment,’ he said.
