CNN should not suspend its reporter

Elise Labott made the mistake of being honest on Thursday. She used Twitter to take sides in a political battle. While I disagree with her, I find refreshing her openness about the baggage of biases she carries as she covers breaking news. But her honesty did not sit well with her bosses at CNN who suspended her for two weeks after a conservative uproar.

I want her reinstated with a promise from CNN that she will be allowed -- and even encouraged -- to express her opinions on the news of the day. Such openness will allow people to properly weigh the information she conveys.

In fact, give her a nice raise.
