4 CNN Hosts Have A Thoughtful Opinion About Something Complex And Make Me Happy

On CNN this weekend, as police reform protests were going on all over the country, four commentators decided to send a message of solidarity with protesters trying to achieve equal rights in the hands of our justice system.

Margaret Hoover (a Republican who worked in the Bush White House), Sally Kohn, Sunny Hostin, and Mel Robbins had something to say about this weekend's protests. It caused a bit of controversy for reasons that don't surprise me but do annoy me. They didn't dismiss or attack protesters for speaking out. They spoke out with them. I don't think I've ever seen pundits do that.

Seeing a group of opinionated pundits from both sides of the aisle taking an actual shared position on issues that aren't often covered in a way that shows sympathy to victims is awesome. Having pundits behave like actual humans and not like walking talking points for political parties is also awesome. We should reward good behavior. Maybe tweet about it so CNN knows to keep embracing more smart stuff like this? I'll owe you one.
