Well, the most trusted name in news might have just lost a little bit of credibility.
That's because CNN is making its own headlines today after reports that senior correspondent Arwa Damon drunkenly bit two medics at the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad.
That's so crazy!
The two victims, Charles Simons and Tracy Lamar, claim that in addition to suffering bites, they were also scratched and bruised, and are now suing Arwa and CNN for $1 million.
Arwa is an Emmy-award winning journalist who up until recently was most known for her reports in war-torn countries. Well, now she's definitely going to be known for something else.
The news station has remained tight-lipped about rumors that they continued to employ Arwa despite a history of drunken outbursts and violence. In fact, a spokesperson denied even knowing about the claims.
Here's hoping she just doesn't go full zombie now that she's had the taste of human flesh.
