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.

    CNN is losing viewers by the millions.

    On the other hand, it seems to be attracting perverts and giving them positions of management.

    Who knew??

Disney Executive Caught on Tape: ‘There’s No Way We’re Hiring a White Man’

Twentieth Century Television Senior Vice President Michael Giordano was caught on a hidden video saying that Disney explicitly does not hire “white men” for specific roles.

Michael Giordano’s comments are only a few minutes in the video, with some intermittent reactions; however, Giordano says some damaging things about Disney’s hiring practices and inclusion policies.

Certainly, there have been times where, you know, there’s no way we’re hiring a white man for this…. There are times when it’s spoken. 

Reporter: How would they say it?

There’s no way we’re hiring a white man for this role. They’d be very careful how they’d message that to agents. 

Giordano says that Disney CEO Bob Iger “100 percent” has a say in ensuring diversity in casting on Disney’s shows and movies. While it is not a directive from Bob Iger, he says there should be “a certain amount of diversity” in each show.

The reporter asked if this initiative came from Latondra Newton, Disney’s former Chief Diversity Officer, who is African American and left her job last year. However, Senior VP Michael Giordano said that other people in human resources are also focused on diversity in the company.

Giordano went on to say that while only 10-15 percent of the population is gay, he estimates that a third or more of Disney’s writers are gay, and they “lean into gay and transgender stories.”

He went on to say that when it comes to Disney’s hiring practices, there are “certain people that they won’t see.” He said:

When it comes to diversity, there is a belief that it’s just good for society. But there’s also a belief that it’s going to make more money if we appeal to a wider variety of people and it’s a good thing.

We have shareholders too. There are conservative people who don’t lean into it, but you can make the argument that we make more money if we appeal to a wider variety of people.
