The final “D.L. Hughley Breaks the News” was taped at CNN’s New York studios this afternoon. And it appears CNN higher-ups forced an edit on producers. A TVNewser tipster tells us, “a large section of a segment about marijuana legalization” was edited out of the final broadcast.
Hughley recently visited a marijuana dispensary in Oakland, California after his doctor had written him a prescription for medicinal marijuana. Hughley apparently has chronic back pain.
But that portion will not be shown during the segment on the final show. A CNN spokesperson tells TVNewser, “We always edit pieces to conform to our editorial standards.”
The final “Hughley” airs Saturday night at 10pmET.
