CNN anchor Poppy Harlow showed true dedication to her work after fainting live on-air Monday. The pregnant broadcaster then recovered and said she and her baby were “fine.”
The incident occurred as Harlow began a story about US President Barack Obama and a CNN/ORC poll that found that 74% of respondents didn’t approve of how he’s handling the fight on terrorism.
