CNN Producer Ousted Over Alleged Inappropriate Behavior
In a statement, CNN confirmed Teddy Davis ‘is no longer with the company.”
“A comprehensive investigation was conducted as soon as this matter was brought to our attention,” CNN said in a statement that was posted on Twitter by Brian Stelter. “The behavior attributed to Mr. Davis does not align with the standards and values of CNN.” CNN did not detail the allegations.
Tapper did not address the situation on his show Wednesday, but confirmed Davis’ firing on Twitter.
This tweet is accurate. When CNN executives were told about these complaints, they reacted swiftly and appropriately, as they should. Workplaces need to be safe and I am fully supportive of CNN's action. https://t.co/S4ZPNfTCPm

Davis’ ouster comes just hours after NBC News fired longtime Today show anchor Matt Lauer over alleged “inappropriate sexual behavior.”
