According to a report from Mediaite’s Caleb Howe, CNN has started sending potential guests a questionnaire form asking several interesting questions.

Howe posted screenshots of the form, noting there are questions about political ideology, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, and more.

The idea behind the questions, Howe posits, is for guest bookers at the network identify guests who would fit a certain topic.

A CNN spokesman told Mediaite they have been using the form for over a year and is “strictly voluntary”.

CNN has come under fire from both sides of the political aisle recently for their planned move back towards a strictly news reporting outlet. Conservative commentors like Rich Zeoli and Jason Rantz have poked fun at the network, while liberal podcast Keith Olbermann has repeatedly taken shots at new CNN President and CEO Chris Licht by saying he thought Licht “ate paste” when the pair worked together at MSNBC.

Over the weekend, CNN political commentator Alice Stewart died unexpectedly at the age of 58.

Northern Virginia law enforcement officers told the network that Stewart was found outdoors in a neighborhood Saturday morning after suffering an apparent medical event.

“Alice was a very dear friend and colleague to all of us at CNN,” network CEO Mark Thompson told staffers in an email. “A political veteran and an Emmy Award-winning journalist who brought an incomparable spark to CNN’s coverage, known across our bureaus not only for her political savvy, but for her unwavering kindness. Our hearts are heavy as we mourn such an extraordinary loss.”

Since joining the network in 2016, Stewart had served as a political commentator, claiming her role was to be a “conservative voice yet an independent thinker.” Before her time at the cable network, she worked on campaigns for Republican politicians like Ted Cruz and Mike Huckabee.

Many of her current and former colleagues took to social media to share tributes honoring her memory after her death was announced.
