While CNN banned Outkick founder Clay Travis from appearing on its program in 2017 after he said he “believed in the First Amendment and boobs,” the left-leaning outlet had no issue bringing back legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin after he was caught on a Zoom with colleagues pleasuring himself.

Travis called out CNN Friday, tweeting, “CNN banned me from their network for saying I believed in the first amendment and boobs, but they just rehired a guy caught masturbating on a Zoom call and had him discuss it live on air.”

“[ESPN] said, ‘Look, you can’t have this opinion; it’s too conservative. We’re not going to allow it.’ I think that’s a bad move; I’m a First Amendment absolutist. I believe in only two things completely:
