Roland Martin’s CNN Suspension is Over

By Chris Ariens Comment

FishbowlDC scoops that Roland Martin’s suspension from CNN has been lifted.

Martin, a CNN contributor, has been off the air since early February following a series of Tweets that some say were homophobic.

Martin has been spending much of his time off CNN on Twitter. This afternoon he’s been Tweeting about Tweeting about the case of Trayvon Martin, an unarmed black Miami teenager who was shot and killed by a white crime watch volunteer in an Orlando-area gated community on Feb. 26. Outrage is growing because the police chief in Sanford, FL held a news conference today saying they do not have enough evidence to charge the shooter, who is white.

While the case has been getting a lot of media attention in the Orlando and Miami markets, the cable news networks have not covered it much. To date, HLN has spent the most time reporting it.
