Conducted by a third-party law firm and headed by a former federal judge, the investigation was comprehensive and definitive. It was commissioned in September and finished this weekend, now allow me to share more information with you. Based on interviews with more than 40 individuals and a review of more than 100,000 texts and emails, the investigation uncovered violations of Company policies, including the Company’s News Standards and Practices. CNN, by Jeff Zucker, Allison Gollust and Chris Cuomo.

I find this news disturbing, disappointing and frankly painful to read. These are valid feelings that many of you have.

We have the highest standards of journalistic integrity at CNN and those rules should apply equally to everyone. With the information provided to me in the investigation, I have good faith that we have taken the right actions and that the right decisions have been made.

I ask in this moment that we all commit to the important mission we share and the values ‚Äč‚Äčthat define us. CNN, WarnerMedia and this incredible team deserve that commitment.
