The late night might be wearing on CNN’s Ferguson reporting team. Just hours after being tear gassed on-air, Don Lemon and Van Jonessharply disagreed over the nature of Monday night’s Ferguson protests, with Jones accusing Lemon of “insulting” the people of Ferguson by painting the demonstrations as predominantly violent.
“In my estimation there’s been too much political correctness, trying to appease protesters,” Lemon began. “I don’t mean appease the people out there peacefully. There was nothing peaceful about last night.”
