CNN drops Rick Santorum after ‘racist’ comments about Native Americans

A CNN executive told The Huffington Post the news that it had cut ties with the former Senator. The ending of the relationship comes after he made “inaccurate” statements about Native Americans.

CNN ended its contract with Rick Santorum after the former Republican senator and two-time presidential candidate made “inaccurate” and “racist” remarks about Native Americans, according to a report.

A senior CNN executive told the Huffington Post Saturday that the network parted ways with Santorum, a political commentator, earlier this week, even as the former Pennsylvania senator tried to explain his comments that “there was nothing” in the US before the arrival of European colonizers on one of the network’s shows earlier this month.

Santorum went on “Cuomo Prime Time” to explain that he “misspoke” in a speech to a conservative youth group in April.
