Journalist Fired for Wearing MAGA Hat

MULTIMEDIA journalist, James Bunner was fired for breaking a KTTC policy. The reporter was caught donning a “Make America Great Again” hat.

He violated our policy so he’s no longer with us . . . [KTTC] We don’t allow our people to wear campaign clothing while on assignment.

The Austin-based Bunner was covering Trump’s Rochester visit before being given the boot. After a photo circulated online of him donning the headwear, he was let go by the organization. KTTC’s news director told Buzzfeed News that Bunner had violated their policy.

This was far from Bunner’s first time showing his political leaning, however. He’s taken to Twitter a number of times to support Trump. He had even added an NRA banner to his Twitter profile at one point. Bunner even posted a picture of himself dancing in a newsroom on Trump’s Inauguration Day.
