CNN suspends Roland Martin

CNN has suspended Roland Martin for making “regrettable and offensive” remarks demeaning gays on Super Bowl Sunday.

Shocking, no?

The cable news network actually acted after taking a demur three-day time-out.

“Roland Martin’s tweets were regrettable and offensive,” CNN says in a statement.

“Language that demeans is inconsistent with the values and culture of our organization, and is not tolerated. We have been giving careful consideration to this matter, and Roland will not be appearing on our air for the time being.”

What exactly does it mean to be suspended from CNN? Will Roland be paid or not?

How long will his time-out last?

Will he be fired?

Will he receive a polite, coded message that he should cut his losses and resign?
