A CNN producer who often boasted about his closeness with recently fired anchor Chris Cuomo was arrested Friday after he was charged with “three counts of using a facility of interstate commerce to attempt to entice minors to engage in unlawful sexual activity” by a federal grand jury in Vermont.
The producer is 44-year-old John Griffin, who allegedly attempted to “entice parents of underage girls to hand over their daughters for sexual training hosted by himself” reports The Federalist.
Griffin has worked for CNN the past nine years has allegedly used social media online messaging platforms such as Kik and Google Hangouts to lure parents and their underage daughters to his house in order to teach them sexually.
Griffin’s LinkedIn page stated his position as “LEAD ANCHOR’S SENIOR PRODUCER, CNN ‘NEW DAY.’ Works shoulder-to-shoulder with lead anchor Chris Cuomo, seeing him through each show and producing live breaking news across the country and around the world.”
If convicted, Griffin could face life in prison, as well as “the federal government intends to seek the forfeiture of Griffin’s Ludlow house, his Tesla, a Mercedes, and other property that was used in the commission of the charged offenses.”
The Federalist reports on the case details:
According to the U.S. Department of Justice’s official press release, Griffin allegedly said a “woman is a woman regardless of her age,” and boasted that he could teach girls how to become sexually submissive.
Griffin started in April 2020 by trying to entice minors to engage in sexual activity online and even offered to host a “virtual training session” where he reportedly instructed a mother and daughter to do sexual acts in front of him.
In June of 2020, Griffin allegedly convinced and paid a mother with two underage daughters $3,000 to fly her 9-year-old across the country from Nevada to Boston to be “trained properly.”
“The mother and child flew to Boston in July of 2020, where Griffin picked them up in his Tesla and drove them to his Ludlow house. At the house, the daughter was directed to engage in, and did engage in, unlawful sexual activity,” the press release stated.
Griffin allegedly made a similar offer to the mother of a 16-year-old girl that same month.

No ‘Joy’ for MSNBC Host Set to Lose Her 7pm Show
Rumor has it that MSNBC host Joy Reid will be losing her 7pm show. Jon Nicosia, president of News Cycle Media took to Twitter to write a series of tweets about the shakeup:
“Source @Comcast: ‘Joy Reid will lose her 7p show in the next round of reshuffling at MSNBC,’ – ‘she does not have a show come mid Spring’ – The ‘decision has been made, the only thing left is messaging on the move, which will be ratings’ -1/”
“As was the case with Chris Cuomo at CNN, Reid has allies at Comcast, however, she is now viewed as ‘unmanageable’ by many. Also, similar to Cuomo, it appears those allies have found out she has been ‘less than truthful about past incidents’ 2/(more to come).”
“Also, like Cuomo at CNN. Watch for MSNBC/Comcast to defend her right until the announcement” Nicosia added to the Twitter thread.
Reid has been known to have hate-filled rants and place news stories under the umbrella of racism. Among her most recent and most vile of controversial quotes is when she said Republicans have a deep “hatred” for President Biden because he served as vice president to “the Black president.”
