The set of CNN This Morning has taken on a frosty air amid tensions between co-hosts Don Lemon and Kaitlan Collins. CNN issued a statement to Mediaite regarding the report: “The Post’s account is wildly overblown and two months old. A review of the December 8 episode shows the extent of the on air interruptions and tensions that led to the off air clash between Lemon and Collins. Poppy Harlow, the third co-host on CNN This Morning, and an experienced and gifted anchor, has remained out of headlines regarding this spat. There may be other reasons for tensions: less than impressive ratings for CNN This Morning and CNN across the board.
