Isha Sesay exits CNN over Trump coverage as she speaks on Chibok girls

Popular Cable News Network (CNN) reporter, Isha Sesay, has announced her exit from the organisation after 13 years.

Sesay is a British born journalist of Sierra Leonean descent.

The journalist broke the news on her Twitter handle, @IamIshaSesay on Wednesday.

“It’s really happening, folks!! After more than a decade behind the desk with those three red letters… I HAVE LEFT CNN.”

In an interview with WhatWeSeee, Sesay said: “It’s an exciting time for me — and a nerve-wracking one. I’m writing a book about the Chibok girls”.

“It really speaks to where my head is at, currently — a lot more coverage about Africa, a lot more work on the continent, and a lot more focus on young girls. That’s what I’m about right now.”

Sesay also revealed her frustration with Western media, which is focused on US President Trump, “It’s all so Trump-focused.

“He sucked all of the oxygen out of the room. The media is following that lead to the exclusion of almost everything else, in a meaningful way. For me, personally, it’s not what I want to spend all my time doing.”

“After a while, I want to do more coverage of the Ebola outbreak, of the elections in Liberia, or any number of things that are happening. I’m ready to take control of what I’m talking about,” Sesay added.
