CNN’s ‘Documented’ Tweet Draws Criticism

CNN aired “Documented” last night, which chronicled Pulitzer-prize-winning journalist Jose Antonio Vargas‘ story. Vargas has gained a high-profile after outing himself as an undocumented immigrant and advocating for comprehensive immigration reform (watch our Media Beat interview with him after the jump).

CNN’s social media manager responded to the criticism, specifically answering a comment from BuzzFeed’s Adrian Carrasquillo.
