Why, CNN…, you look like somebody just walked over your grave.

Brian Flood of Fox News reports that, “CNN’s in-house media pundit Brian Stelter was confronted by a C-SPAN caller on Tuesday who told him the liberal network is ‘dividing our nation’ and called CNN the ‘enemy of the truth.’”

Boom!

Bam!

Bingo!

“Stelter joined C-SPAN’s ‘Washington Journal’ to answer questions from viewers when a caller from Minnesota accused CNN of committing over 300,000 ‘distortions of truth’ since President Donald Trump took office.”

Oh, c’mon, 300,000?

Really?

It’s got to be much more than that!

‘“You guys always talk about how many times Trump has lied, I’ve calculated and, I think with your chyrons [electronically generated captions superimposed on a TV screen]…, I don’t know if there are any journalists left at CNN but I know that, if I were to estimate, about 300 different distortions or misinformation that we get out of CNN,’ the caller said. ‘And you have to watch them in the airport, which is harsh, but if you added all that up to 46 months, it comes out to be 300,000-plus distortions of truth.’”

“@TimJGraham tweeted, ‘Oh @brianstelter did not have a pile of fans calling in to C-SPAN today. This man really brought the pain, saying ‘CNN is the enemy of truth.’ Stelter said yeah, Trump has ‘radicalized’ people with this talk of media bias. Laughably claims MSM is structured to keep bias out!’”

“The caller then evoked Nick Sandmann, who famously settled a multimillion-dollar defamation lawsuit with CNN.”

‘“You defamed a child,’” the caller said, adding that CNN is ‘dividing our nation’ with partisan coverage.”

‘“And I don’t believe in dividing our nation, it hurts our great nation, and, so CNN is really the enemy of the truth,’ the caller said. ‘That’s my opinion, thank you.’”

“Stelter, who seemed to be used to such feedback and has been labeled media’s ‘hall monitor’ by critics in the past, said he was grateful for the call.”

Okay…, well that was just another lie!

‘“I know you’re not the only person that feels this way,’ Stelter said.”

Now that may be the biggest understatement of the year!

‘“There has been a process of radicalization that’s happened in this country with media bashing that is absolutely unprecedented.’”

Yes, Brian Stelter, there has definitely been a “process of radicalization in this country,” but it has nothing to do “media bashing.”

And, yes, the media bashing has been “absolutely unprecedented,” and rightfully so!

“Stelter then said that many journalists live in big cities and have ‘liberal leanings,’ but newsrooms should ensure that ‘bias doesn’t seep into the news coverage.’”

Oh, come on, Brian…, what we’re talking about here is MUCH MORE than “liberal leanings” and “bias.” What we’re talking about here is a concerted and coordinated liberal propagandizing effort.

‘“Yet sometimes it [regarding bias seeping into the news] does,’ Stelter said. ‘I absolutely acknowledge that. I think it’s different to talk about things as if they are enemies.’”

‘“No American is an enemy of another American.’”

Lie!

‘“No news outlet is an enemy of America.’”

Another lie!

So, now they’re willing to acknowledge their biases in an effort to buy their unabashed liberal propaganda campaign some time…, in their minds.

The media was intended to be the watchdog of the government on behalf of the American people.

Well, the American people have been sold down the river…, and what are left with is the equivalent of a fox guarding the hen house.

A more appropriate metaphor might be a nest of rats guarding your children.

In any case…, the liberal propaganda, fake news media was deservedly called-out here, and they are as guilty as hell.

In my mind, what these “news” outlets are guilty of is the equivalent of treason against our country.

Defund your police!  I dare you!

According to Tyler Olson of Fox News, “In the wake of George Floyd’s death, calls to ‘defund the police’ have in a matter of days escalated from a fringe campaign to a celebrity-backed cause to part of the municipal mainstream — and now appear primed to spur official action, to varying degrees, in cities across the country.”

adare 6

These cities would include Minneapolis, San Francisco, Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, Baltimore, and Philadelphia, amongst others.

You know…, your list of typical, clueless, liberal hotbed cities.

As I don’t live in these circus towns, I don’t really care what they do…, but I must admit, that watching the news every night after they got rid of their police departments would definitely be entertaining, to say the least!

Like I said…, I dare all of you liberal cities to get rid of your police forces…, I DARE YOU!

I DOUBLE DOG DARE YOU!

adare 1

“The stunning momentum behind the movement has fueled Republican criticism that ‘radical’ ideas are being readily embraced by Democrats.”

“On the ground, however, there is a visible conflict between Democrats on board with ‘defund’ and those who want to seek reforms without actually dismantling police departments. This split, and the sudden power that activists wield over local officials on the issue, was perhaps best illustrated over the weekend when Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey faced a crowd of protesters asking him whether he would support abolishing the city’s police department.”

adare 3

“Frey, while promising reform to the city’s ‘systemically racist’ policing system and saying ‘the police union needs to be put in its place,’ was asked a ‘yes or no’ question by a protester [one of the organizers, I believe] if he would ‘commit to defunding the Minneapolis Police Department.’”

Ah, the dreaded “yes or no” question!

A good politician knows to disregard that stipulation!

‘“We don’t want no more police,’ the woman questioning him continued. ‘Is that clear? We don’t want people with guns toting around in our communities, shooting us down.’”

Oh, really?

This woman apparently isn’t aware that African-Americans are 4-5 times more likely to be killed by another African-American than a white person, and close to 300 times more likely to be killed by another African-American as opposed to being killed by a police officer.

Do they plan on banning their own black men, in general, as well?

Just sayin’.

Typical misinformed liberal, or doesn’t care to be informed liberal, or is informed but is just pushing the radical left’s narrative without any real concern for the people of the community.

I vote for the latter.

‘“I do not support the abolition’ of the police department, Frey said.”

Wow!  Even though I’m not a fan, this guy is not as stupid as I thought, and he definitely has some balls to respond honestly in the middle of a huge, antagonistic, crowd.

I do give credit where credit is due!

“He was immediately shouted down. ‘Get the f— out of here,’ the protester responded as others loudly booed [and threw things at] Frey, who later reiterated his commitment to reforming the department, despite saying he would not dismantle it entirely.”

adare 4

“Despite Frey’s reluctance to go along, Minneapolis’ left-leaning City Council members on Sunday announced a veto-proof push to disband the Minneapolis police.”

“Supporters of the move told Fox News, ‘We recognize that we don’t have all the answers about what a police-free future looks like, but our community does. We’re committing to engaging with every willing community member in the city of Minneapolis over the next year to identify what safety looks like for you.’”

“The calls for dismantling the city police are perhaps the loudest from City Council member Jeremiah Ellison, the son of state Attorney General Keith Ellison. The younger Ellison [a Muslim and a proponent of implementing Sharia Law] has said that after taking apart the police department, ‘we’re not simply gonna glue it back together. We are going to dramatically rethink how we approach public safety and emergency response. It’s really past due.’”

adare 5

I can’t wait to see what your idea of public safety and emergency response looks like…, and I imagine the criminals in Minneapolis can’t wait either!

Brian Flood of Fox News reports that, “Minneapolis City Council president Lisa Bender went viral on Monday morning when she told CNN that calling the police when your home is broken into ‘comes from a place of privilege,’ before being lampooned by everyone from Sen. Ted Cruz to Donald Trump Jr.”

adare 2

“Bender brought some attention to CNN’s low-rated morning show ‘New Day’ [ouch!] when she joined Alisyn Camerota to discuss her goal of dismantling the Minneapolis police department in the wake of George Floyd’s tragic death while in police custody.”

“Bender said the police are not keeping everyone safe, and the first step of fixing the problem is to admit the current system isn’t working. Bender has said she can imagine a future without police, and has urged money to be redirected from a ‘militarized police force’ to things she feels would greater benefit the community.”

‘“Do you understand that the word dismantle, or police-free, also makes some people nervous, for instance, what if, in the middle of the night, my home is broken into,’ Camerota asked. ‘Who do I call?’”

“BENDER: ‘Yes, I hear that loud and clear from a lot of my neighbors. And I know — and myself, too, and I know that that comes from a place of privilege.  For those of us for whom the system is working, I think we need to step back and imagine what it would feel like to already live in that reality where calling the police may mean more harm is done.’”

“BENDER: ‘We’ve done an analysis of all the reasons people call 911, and I’ve looked at ways we can shift the response away from armed police officers into a more appropriate response for mental health calls, for some domestic violence calls, for health-related issues.’”

Obviously, Ms. Bender doesn’t even realize she’s legislating herself right out of a job!

If no one lives or works in Minneapolis anymore, there won’t be a need for a Common Council either.

More propaganda by omission!

Liberal propaganda, that is.

There were special elections Tuesday, May 12, for two open Congressional seats.  One in California and one in Wisconsin.

But, there was no mention of the results of these races on CNN or their website.

acnnelect 11

In their defense, it was a busy news day.

There were many stories that were much more important, like:

“A teenager accidentally hit and killed her father while learning to park truck.”

“Elle Fanning dressed up as Brad Pitt and nailed it.”

“Sharon Osbourne weighs in on body image debate after Adele’s viral Instagram post.”

“Tina Fey’s daughter crashes interview, calls mom a loser.”

“American artist Rashid Johnson: ‘Anxiety is part of my life.’”

I mean, you can only cover so much news, right?

But why on earth would CNN not even mention who won these elections?

Hmmm.  What’s going on here?

I mean, there are only 435 of these representatives, and they’re responsible for spending all of our money and making all of the federal laws.

You would think that any responsible news organization would at least mention the results.

Ahhh…, well there we have it!

CNN isn’t a responsible news organization…, it’s a part of the propaganda wing for the democrat party!

acnnelect 12

In fact, most of the mainstream, fake news media failed to offer ANY coverage of this as well.

acnnelect 8

When seen from the proper perspective…, CNN, and all of their fake news friends, not mentioning the special elections makes perfect sense.

You see, in the case of this special election, the two congressional seats were won by republicans, and Trump supporters to boot!

This does not fit the liberals’ narrative!

How could this be?

How could this be, when we are told that the whole country wants President Trump impeached?!

How could this be in the swing state of Wisconsin and the democrat stronghold of California?

acnnelect 7

And these republicans both won by substantial margins.  These were not wins that were eked out.

According to Joseph A. Wulfsohn of Fox News, “The GOP clinched major victories in two special elections held on Tuesday but was largely ignored by the mainstream media.”

Thank you, Mr. Wulfsohn, and thank God for Fox News.

If it wasn’t for Fox News, we would have no choice but to consume the democrat, mainstream media, fake news tripe.

“Mike Garcia managed to flip California’s 25th District, becoming the first Republican to do that in the state since 1998.”

This isn’t news?

This doesn’t deserve ANY type of mention?

“Garcia, a former Navy combat pilot, was declared the winner on Wednesday after his Democratic challenger, state assemblywoman Christy Smith, conceded the race. The congressional seat was previously held by Rep. Katie Hill, who resigned last year.”

acnnelect 1

“Wisconsin state senator Tom Tiffany was able to maintain the GOP’s control over the state’s conservative-leaning 7th district left vacant by Rep. Sean Duffy.”

Tiffany was not only “able to maintain” control of Wisconsin’s 7th district seat, he crushed his democrat opponent.  So much so that her name isn’t even mentioned, so as not to completely ruin her political future I suppose.

I have none of those concerns.  Her name is Tricia Zunker.

acnnelect 9

According to Wisconsin Public Radio, “Because of Wisconsin’s status as a swing state in the 2020 presidential election, the May special election is expected to be closely watched for signs of strength or weakness in Trump’s re-election campaign. Trump needs large margins of victory in Wisconsin’s rural areas to win the state, and the race is seen by many as a test of Democrats’ ability to reach rural voters.”

Ha!  So, I guess they failed the test.

acnnelect 3

“Past special elections in recent memory generated plenty of news coverage, particularly when Democrats pick up congressional seats as pundits often hype that such victories are a ‘bellwether’ for what’s to come in the upcoming elections.”

“However, there was little to zero mention of Garcia and Tiffany’s victories on any of the major news networks.”

“None of the three broadcast networks, ABC, CBS, and NBC, aired any coverage of the special election races during Wednesday’s morning programs. The networks skipped such coverage in the evening news shows as well.”

“CNN completely ignored both races throughout the day. Meanwhile, MSNBC once mentioned Garcia’s likely win on Wednesday morning but ignored Tiffany’s victory.”

acnnelect 5

acnnelect 10

Like I have been saying…, the fake news, mainstream media is really just an arm of the democrat party.

We’ve gone past the concern over biased media coverage to calling out these news outlets for what they are…, contrived and constructed liberal propaganda.

How else can you explain their behavior?

And if you’re a democrat…, is that OK?

If that is OK with you…, then you’ve gone from being a victim of the left’s deceit to being a part of the problem.

You’ve graduated from fool to tool.

acnnelect 6

Anyone who is objective and fair-minded cannot be a democrat.

CNN is MIA!

Again?

Yes…, “CNN is missing in action on Biden assault accuser Tara Reade’s story.”

aaccuser 6

And they’re not the only media outlet missing in action.

The rest of the fake news media is choosing to turn its back on this story as well.

aaccuser 2

According to Joseph A. Wulfsohn of Fox News, “It has been nearly three weeks [over three weeks now] since former congressional staffer Tara Reade spoke out about her 1993 sexual assault accusation against former Vice President Joe Biden, but it wasn’t until Easter Sunday that it began receiving any attention from the mainstream media.”

“And if you only watch CNN, you still haven’t heard about it.”

aaccuser 16

“For 18 days, as the coronavirus outbreak dominated the news cycle, Reade’s claim was not covered by the biggest media outlets following her March 25 interview with progressive podcast host Katie Halper. CNN, MSNBC and the three broadcast networks did not offer any on-air coverage or articles on their websites about the alleged assault. The New York Times and The Washington Post, two papers that dedicated extensive reporting to sex assault allegations made against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh in 2018, were also mum on the matter.”

That, folks, is what we call propaganda by omission…, as well as “selective outrage.”

aaccuser 4

“In addition, in seven televised interviews [Creepy Joe] Biden has done since Reade came forward with her allegation, he was never asked about it. This includes three interviews on MSNBC, two appearances on CNN and appearances on the Sunday morning news shows on ABC and NBC. Prominent anchors like Anderson Cooper, Chuck Todd and George Stephanopoulos never questioned the presumptive Democratic nominee, instead focusing on the pandemic and President Trump’s handling of the crisis.”

Never asked about it.

“The absence of reporting from these outlets was notable enough for the satirical news site ‘The Onion’ to address, mocking the Times on Thursday with the headline: ‘New York Times’ Pledges To Cover Biden Sexual Assault Allegations in Upcoming Crossword.’”

onion-bush

“The tides began to shift following Rich McHugh’s report in Business Insider on Friday that Reade had filed a criminal complaint against Biden. The New York Times ran its first report about the allegation on Sunday morning as millions of Americans were observing Easter. The Washington Post and NBC News issued their own reports later that day.”

“NewsBusters managing editor Curtis Houck blasted the ‘slowness’ of the media’s reporting on Reade’s allegation and insisted that the timing of the recent reports was suspect.”

‘“The liberal media’s slowness has provided a whole new meaning to the term [dragged in] “kicking and screaming,” because that’s exactly how the press have approached Reade’s story. Not only have they deceptively tried to sneak this in to coincide with Easter, but they’ve displayed shameful skepticism and even disgust when evaluating her,’ Houck told Fox News. ‘Most disturbingly, the Times chose to allow the Biden campaign to edit their story, and it illustrated the depths to which the press will go to show that Biden is no Brett Kavanaugh.’”

Quite different as to how the fake news media, the democrats, and liberals everywhere treated Kavanaugh accusers Christine Blasey Ford, Deborah Ramirez and Julie Swetnick.

aaccuser 5

Yes, quite different, like completely different.

Where is the daily, and non-stop, media outrage?

Where are the daily protests in front of The Supreme Court?

Where is the concern for women’s voices to be heard?

Do you remember the “#METOO” movement?

Well, that movement has become the #METOO (only if my accusations do not pose any harm to the current liberal narrative and/or democrat candidates).

aaccuser 8

My last comment isn’t intended to be funny.  I’m only dragging the democrat’s blatant hypocrisy out into the sunlight for all to see, and stating what should be the obvious.

Can anyone, who is at least a little fair-minded, not recognize and acknowledge this?

aaccuser 7

“The Times raised eyebrows on Sunday after it deleted a tweet and tweaked its report about the 1993 accusation made by former Biden staffer Tara Reade, which originally read, ‘No other allegation about sexual assault surfaced in the course of reporting, nor did any former Biden staff members corroborate any details of Ms. Reade’s allegation. The Times found no pattern of sexual misconduct by Mr. Biden, beyond the hugs, kisses and touching that women previously said made them uncomfortable.’”

Some people may say, “All the way back in 1993…, that’s 27 years ago!”

But please let me remind you that Kavanaugh’s accusers dated all the way back to when he was in high school and college!

Creepy Joe Biden was a U.S. Senator, for 20 years already, at the time of Reade’s accusations.

“No correction or editor’s note was made in the report, but the Times later explained the deleted tweet, saying, ‘We’ve deleted a tweet in this thread that had some imprecise language that has been changed in the story.’”

“Imprecise language,” huh?

I haven’t heard that exact terminology before.

I’ll have to ad that to my “liberal dictionary!”

“Imprecise language” is that wording which has not been sufficiently spun, so as to put a liberal or a liberal narrative in the most advantageous and positive light.

“Dean Baquet, the Times’ executive editor, suggested on Monday that the change was influenced by the Biden campaign.”

‘“Even though a lot of us, including me, had looked at it before the story went into the paper, I think that the campaign thought that the phrasing was awkward and made it look like there were other instances in which he had been accused of sexual misconduct, and that’s not what the sentence was intended to say,’ Baquet said.”

And, of course, Dean, you give President Trump the opportunity to correct phrasing that is “awkward” when you report about him or his administration, don’t you?

That’s a rhetorical question, Mr. Baquet…, don’t sweat the answer.

“Actress Rose McGowan, one of the sexual assault victims of disgraced film mogul Harvey Weinstein, took aim at the Post over its report on Reade.”

aaccuser 9

‘“This is not journalism, this is an agenda. This is a hit piece. You’ve sunk to a new low in slanted journalism and victim shaming @WashingtonPost,’ McGowan tweeted.”

‘“As a survivor, the way you launched into this woman’s assault is truly vile,’ McGowan added. ‘Your motto is “Democracy Dies in Darkness” well I guess it’s dead because you are dark. Evil lives and it loves the DNC.

@rosemcgowan’”

Good for you Rose McGowan!

I haven’t agreed with some of your stances in the past, but congratulations on nailing this one right on the head and recognizing this whole situation for what it is…, a liberal propaganda, hypocritical, mess.

“Meanwhile, despite the partial dam that broke within the mainstream media, CNN and CBS News have yet to offer any [ANY] coverage of the story both on-air and online, according to searches of their telecasts and Internet archives.”

aaccuser 3

“McHugh, who broke the story on Reade’s filed criminal complaint against Biden, was formerly the producer at NBC News who teamed with Ronan Farrow to break the Harvey Weinstein scandal in 2017, which was ultimately killed by the network.”

‘“After interviewing Tara on multiple occasions, I interviewed two of the people she told back in 1993 — her friend and her younger brother. I found them both extremely credible and they corroborated her story to me. So when Tara filed a criminal complaint, and told me she was willing to go under oath, it was clear her claims needed to be reported. Simple as that,’ McHugh told Fox News.”

“Reade initially stepped forward last year, when multiple women emerged claiming inappropriate touching by Biden. Reade, at the time, claimed Biden put his hands on her shoulders and rubbed his fingers up and down her neck, but the story got no traction aside from an article in a local newspaper.”

“In late-March, Reade told a far more graphic account, with different and more serious details, raising the allegation to the level of sexual assault.”

“Reade’s story first resurfaced in an article in The Intercept. Podcast host Katie Halper then interviewed Reade, who said that in 1993, a more senior member of Biden’s staff asked her to bring the then-senator his gym bag near the Capitol building, which led to the encounter in question.”

‘“He greeted me, he remembered my name, and then we were alone. It was the strangest thing,’ Reade told Halper. ‘There was no like, exchange really. He just had me up against the wall.’”

“Reade said she tried to share her story last year, but nobody listened to her. This past Thursday, she filed a criminal complaint against Biden with police in Washington, D.C.”

“The Biden campaign vehemently denied Reade’s allegation.”

Like they always do…, lie, lie, lie, deny, deny, deny.

‘“Women have a right to tell their story, and reporters have an obligation to rigorously vet those claims. We encourage them to do so, because these accusations are false,’ Kate Bedingfield, the deputy campaign manager and communications director for the Biden campaign, said in a statement to Fox News.”

Just empty words, Kate…, just empty words.

Howard Kurtz of Fox News adds, “The woman who says Joe Biden sexually assaulted her a quarter century ago certainly has some weaknesses and discrepancies in her account.  But Tara Reade has more corroboration for her claim than Christine Blasey Ford did when she made her accusations against Brett Kavanaugh in the fall of 2018.  And yet the differences in the way the media treated both cases are stark, raising unmistakable questions of a double standard.”

aaccuser 11

“Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez just endorsed Biden, but said of the allegations at a public forum: ‘I think it’s legitimate to talk about these things. And if we want, if we, again, want to have integrity, you can’t say, you know — both believe women, support all of this, until it inconveniences you, until it inconveniences us.’”

aaccuser 10

That’s my girl, AOC!

Our politics are definitely world’s apart, but as I have stated in the past, you do display some integrity from time to time, which is a redeeming quality many of your fellow democrats lack.

CNN keeps “doubling down” on their liberal agenda.

Yes folks, CNN does not even pretend to be fair and balanced, unbiased, news anymore.

CNN is squarely and unapologetically in the corner of the liberals and the democrats…, and it’s been that way for years now.

Truth is not their concern…, only the promotion of the liberal narrative…, whatever that may currently be.

CNN and the fake news media was most recently called out when radio talk show host and the host of the TV show “Life, Liberty and Levin, Mark Levin, targeted CNN’s fake news poster child, Jim Acosta.

Joshua Nelson of Fox News reported that, “Mark Levin blasts CNN’s Jim Acosta: ‘He should wear a mask and a dunce cap.’”

acosta 5

Ha! Yeah! Now that would be worth watching!

“Fox News host Mark Levin was one of the many who blasted CNN chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta for interrupting Dr. Deborah Birx during a White House press briefing on the coronavirus last week.”

acosta 21

‘“Jim Acosta’s not a news reporter. He’s a self-aggrandizing narcissist. Exactly what America doesn’t need during the pandemic.  He should wear a mask and a dunce cap.” Mark R. Levin @marklevinshow.’ Mark Levin tweeted.”

acosta 7

And Acosta isn’t alone.  He’s just the current face of the most recent batch of fake news, liberal propagandists, masquerading as journalists.

Acosta, being CNN’s “chief White House correspondent,” means he can lie and misrepresent anything with a straight face…, kind of like Bill Clinton!

“Levin also “linked” to a Washington Free Beacon opinion piece which blasted Acosta for his conduct at White House press briefings, accusing him of using the events to make a name for himself.”

acosta 1

Continuing with the coronavirus White House press conference, “[Dr.] Birx addressed the apparent errors the World Health Organization (WHO) made leading up to the outbreak in the U.S. as something that should be examined.”

‘“I will remind you that on February 3rd [only about a month ago], the head of the WHO said there was no reason to ever do a travel ban,’ Dr. Birx said. ‘It wasn’t until January 14th that we knew that there was human-to-human transmission,’ she continued.”

The Daily Caller tweeted, ‘“Jim Acosta interrupts Dr. Birx as she criticizes the WHO’s response to coronavirus. @DailyCaller,’” while posting a video of the exchange.

acosta 8

“Acosta quickly derailed her observations about WHO to knock President Trump.”

‘“Dr. Birx, the president was saying this was going to go away,’ Acosta said. ‘It’s April.’”

“Many took to social media to blast the reporter.”

‘“Jim Acosta’s interruption of Dr. Birx is an example of how CNN’s echo-journalism model is destroying the media’s credibility. Every question from Acosta is an effort to score points rather than elicit information. It is a press pandemic that continues to rage without relief.  @JonathanTurley’”

“CNN did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.”

Oh really?

Does that surprise anybody?

CNN feels it isn’t accountable to anybody…, and certainly not Fox News.  George Soros, maybe…, but not Fox News nor any of us “deplorables.”

Thank you for all of your misinformation and disingenuous hyping of the whole coronavirus situation.

The world and the United States has faced many infectious diseases before, and we face the common flu every year, but we have never seen this level of outright hysteria demonstrated before.

“The annual flu” routinely kills hundreds and hundreds of times the people that the coronavirus has, and will, kill, and we already have a vaccine for it as well!

Where has the hysteria been about that?

Where have the quarantines been about that?

Where have the school and business closings been about that?

Why are tens of thousands of deaths acceptable every year from one virus, but these thousands of deaths are not from another virus?

acnncon 3

Thanks to the fake news’ eagerness to hang any bit of bad news on President Trump, they have now established a precedent that is going to make everyone’s life a living hell every year or every other year at least.

acnncon 2

acnncon 4

The threat of getting sick is now going to be dictating how we live our lives.

How are all of the politicians going to have to respond in the future to any disease floating around out there?

Are we going to have case counts and death counts for the flu every year now as well?

I hope not…, because those numbers would really be scary…, not like these wimpy coronavirus numbers.

Is it ever going to be “safe” again to gather together in large numbers?

Has the era of going to the movies, concerts, and sporting events come to an end?

Are we doomed to watch everything from remotely from the safety of our homes now?

Think about it.

I’m afraid the world has let the fake news media talk it into believing that our governments can, and should, protect us from anything and everything, including diseases and acts of nature.

Our lives are NEVER going to be the same now.

Yes…, thanks CNN, MSNBC, NBC, CBS, ABC, NPR and all the rest of the liberal propaganda media.

Your desire to control us has lowered our quality of life…, forever, which I know you’re not really concerned about, but your actions have ended up lowering the quality of your own lives as well.  This, I know, had not been considered before you (the fake news media and the democrats) decided to go down this path.

I see CNN has finally posted some news about the stock market! 

Yes folks, and if you see CNN, MSNBC, CBS, NBC, ABC, The Huffington Post (HuffPost), The New York Times or The Washington Post reporting news about Wall Street, or the economy in general, it’s bad news.

acnn3 9

In this case, CNN Business’ David Goldman reports, “US stocks plummet on Coronavirus fears: March 9, 2020.  Dow falls 2,100 points.”

Well, that is definitely news Mr. Goldman…, but it was news too when the stock market hit record highs like over 30 times this last year.

It’s funny how I didn’t see any mention of those economic events.

I wonder why?

acnn3 3

CNN must be doubly excited about this news…, as their hyping of the coronavirus seems to be working and that in turn is causing negative economic news.

Please check out my previous blogs regarding the coronavirus:

You scared of the Coronavirus?  From March 3, 2020

https://mrericksonrules.com/2020/03/03/you-scared-of-the-coronavirus/

and,

Death toll hits 14,000!  But I’m not talking about the coronavirus. From March 9, 2020.

https://mrericksonrules.com/2020/03/09/death-toll-hits-14000-but-im-not-talking-about-the-coronavirus/

Another article out there by David Goldman today reports, “It’s a bad day to be an energy company.”

Wow…, two articles in one day!  Mr. Goldman must be extra charged up by all of this bad news!

acnn3 8

Goldman reports, ‘“The rapidly falling price of oil [due to an oil price war between Saudi Arabia and Russia] is likely to put more pressure on energy companies in the United States, which will hurt the banks with the most credit exposure to the oil industry,’ according to CFRA Research analyst Pauline Bell.”

Yes, Mr. Goldman…, again, this is definitely news.

But it was also news when President Trump pushed to open-up more areas for oil exploration and when he got all of the pipelines approved.  Not to mention when we gained our independence from Middle Eastern oil, and in fact, became the world’s number one producer of oil again!

Not to mention how low the price of gas has been for over three years now.

This “good stuff” was also news that I didn’t catch you or CNN reporting about, or even bothering to mention in most cases.

Again, I wonder why?

acnn3 7

Actually, I don’t “wonder why” at all.

I know very well why all of the liberal propaganda, fake news, shamelessly tries to manipulate the news.

It’s all in an effort to support their anti-Trump narrative.

acnn3 1

acnn3 5

It’s just amazing to me how many people are still falling for this fake news.

acnn3 4

acnn3 2

Just watch the fanfare (I’m being sarcastic) about the market bouncing back on the fake news today.

There won’t be any.

Way to go Ivanka!  Way to tell these liberal turds where to get off!

According to Sam Dorman of Fox News, “Ivanka Trump rips ‘disgusting’ CNN panel that mocked her father’s supporters.”

“Ivanka Trump, the president’s daughter and senior White House adviser, had some uncharacteristically strong criticism on Tuesday after a CNN panel slid into suggesting President Trump’s supporters were dumb.”

aivanka 1

‘“You consistently make fun of half the country and then complain that it is divided,’ the first daughter said. ‘The arrogance, mocking accents and smug ridicule of this nation’s “Real Elites” is disgusting,’ Ivanka said.”

aivanka 6

Bravo Ivanka!

aivanka 9

Bravisimo!

I couldn’t have said it better myself.

These people do just absolutely make you sick.

“During a panel on Monday night, [anti-Trump Republican strategist Rick] Wilson joked that Trump couldn’t ‘find Ukraine on a map if you had the letter U and a picture of an actual, physical crane next to it,’ Wilson said.”

I would offer Wilson the same challenge!

What an Idiot.

I bet Wilson could where Dumfukistan…, I mean where New York City was on a map, though.

aivanka 5

“That prompted CNN anchor Don Lemon to keel over in laughter. Wilson added that Trump’s support came from ‘the credulous boomer rube demo [demographic].’ In a mocking Southern accent, he added that those people want to think that ‘Donald Trump’s the smart one and y’all elitists are dumb.’”

aivanka 2

Please recall that Rick Wilson is dubbed an “anti-Trump Republican strategist” by CNN.

He may be a strategist used by Mitt Romney, but that would be about it…, at least now that John McCain is gone.

“Lemon kept laughing hysterically before another guest, columnist Wajahat Ali, continued mocking Trump supporters.  ‘You elitists with your geography and your maps and your spelling,’ Ali said with a similarly derogatory imitation.”

‘“Your math, your reading … all those lines on the map,’ Wilson added in a mocking accent. ‘Only them elitists know where Ukraine is,’ Ali said before apologizing and blaming Wilson for the stunt. Throughout all their exchange, Lemon was laughing so much that he had to tell his panelists to ‘hold on’ before they continued talking.”

aivanka 4

‘“Rick, that was a good one. I needed that,’ Lemon told Wilson. CNN did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.”

Lemon, Ali and Wilson obviously don’t even realize how racist and culturally insensitive and demeaning they are.

aivanka 8

Like Ivanka said, “disgusting.”

“The President himself responded early Tuesday morning, blasting Lemon as ‘the dumbest man on television.’ Both Ali and Wilson seemed unrepentant on social media. By Tuesday afternoon, Lemon had not tweeted about the exchange.”

aivanka 13

“Ivanka Trump has tended to stay away from controversy, even refusing to fire back at comedian Samantha Bee when she hurled a crude expletive at her.”

Hey Lemon, Ali and Wilson…, don’t forget to bring your Kleenex to work election night!  I and all the rest of the deplorables will be looking forward to seeing you whimper after President Trump takes the democrats out to the woodshed…, again!

WINNING!

CNN’s Chris “Fredo” Cuomo is a big-talking baby who can’t handle his booze, just like the real Fredo!

According to Brian Flood of Fox News, “CNN host Chris Cuomo doesn’t appreciate being nicknamed ‘Fredo,’ but has no problem labeling the president ‘Dirty Donald.’”

afredo 1

‘“Cuomo Prime Time’ on [a] Friday [last month] concluded with a segment in which the on-screen graphic referred to the president as ‘#DirtyDonald’ and the namesake host encouraged the moniker to trend on social media.”

Of course!  Isn’t that the liberal way?  Do unto others but don’t do unto me?

I’m not sure why I’m even bothering to comment on this, since I’ve never actually watched Cuomo’s show, nor has anyone else apparently.   It just seemed funny to me…, so here we go!

“Media Research Center analyst Ryan Foley wrote that the use of the nickname makes the CNN host ‘indistinguishable from a Democrat activist.’ The CNN host is the younger brother of Andrew Cuomo, the Democratic governor of New York, and was caught on video threatening a man earlier this year who called him ‘Fredo.’”

“Political satirist Tim Young told Fox News that Cuomo’s newfound fondness of a nickname [for President Trump] is hypocritical.”

“President Trump has mocked CNN’s Chris Cuomo by comparing him to ‘Fredo’ from ‘The Godfather.’”

afredo 6

‘“Cuomo is now officially playing the game that we’ve seen the left play since Trump won the Republican nomination in 2016, where if a joke or joke nickname I made about them, they scream that it’s the end of world… but when they do it, it’s perfectly alright,’ Young said.”

afredo 7

‘“Fredo’ is a reference to Fredo Corleone, the weak and facile brother in the movie ‘The Godfather,’ who was played by John Cazale. The confrontation, which took place at a bar on New York’s Shelter Island, went viral when a man taunted him with the nickname.”

afredo 2

‘“I thought that was who you were,’ the man said.”

‘“No, punk-ass b—-es from the right call me “Fredo.” My name is Chris Cuomo. I’m an anchor on CNN,’ a heated Cuomo responded. ‘“Fredo’ was from ‘The Godfather.’ He was a weak brother and they use that as an Italian slur — are any of you Italian?… It’s a f—ing insult to your people. It’s an insult to your f—kin’ people. It’s like the N-word for us. Is that a cool f—ing thing?’”

afredo 9

No, Mr. Cuomo, it’s not an Italian slur…, it’s a personal slur directed directly at you. You’re the weak wuss of a younger brother just like Fredo.  Being Italian has nothing to do with it.

“After the man sarcastically told him, ‘You’re a much more reasonable guy in person than you seem to be on television,’ Cuomo reacted, ‘If you want to play, we’ll f—ing play.’”

You tell ‘em Fredo!  Ooops…, I mean you tell ‘em Chris!

‘“If you’ve got something to say about what I do on television, then say it, but you don’t have to call me a f—in’ insult,’ Cuomo continued.”

afredo 4

Can I suggest you put your “big boy” pants on and chill, Chris?

‘“Hey man, listen, I don’t want any problems,’ the man, who appears to be holding the camera from below, told Cuomo.”

‘“Well, you’re gonna have a big f—in’ problem,’ Cuomo shot back.”

So hostile!

afredo 5

Just like on TV, you’re big on words, but obviously light on action.  All of the people in the bar were probably a bigger audience than you usually get as well.

“The video ended with multiple people attempting to separate the two men.”

Ha!  Ya…, I can see Cuomo now, acting like he didn’t want anyone holding him back!

“President Trump mocked the video, tweeting that he ‘thought Chris was Fredo also.’”

‘“The truth hurts,’ Trump tweeted. ‘Totally lost it!’”

Well…, you’re right again Mr. President!

President Trump is absolutely right…, AGAIN!

According to Brian Flood of Fox News, “[President] Trump says America would be better off without the ‘CNNs of the world’ after fiery news conference.”

“President Trump ended Wednesday’s White House joint press conference with Finnish President Sauli Niinistö by taking a shot at CNN.”

‘“The United States is a great democracy… and if the press were straight and honest, and forthright and tough, we would be a far greater nation,’ Trump said.”

Can anyone possibly argue the validity of that statement?

Can anyone possibly argue the correctness of that statement?

It is now commonly acknowledged that our “press” has a definite liberal bias.

It has also become apparent, particularly within the last five to ten years, that the “press” has gone beyond being bias to promoting the liberal narrative of the moment.

anocnn 2

anocnn 3

The First Amendment to the United States Constitution says, “Congress shall make no law… abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press….”

The founders of our country saw “the press” as an important component towards a healthy government and a healthy democracy.

According to Eugene Volokh and Gary T. Schwartz, Professor of Law at the UCLA School of Law, for the Heritage.org website, “

This writing by the First Continental Congress in 1774, says, “The last right we shall mention regards the freedom of the press. The importance of this consists, besides the advancement of truth, science, morality, and arts in general, in its diffusion of liberal sentiments on the administration of Government, its ready communication of thoughts between subjects, and its consequential promotion of union among them, whereby oppressive officers are shamed or intimidated into more honorable and just modes of conducting affairs.”

So what are reasonable or accepted journalistic standards?

While various codes may have some differences, most share common elements including the principles of truthfulness, accuracy, objectivity, impartiality, fairness, and public accountability, as these apply to the acquisition of newsworthy information and its subsequent dissemination to the public.

“…public enlightenment is the forerunner of justice and the foundation of democracy. The duty of the journalist is to further those ends by seeking truth and providing a fair and comprehensive account of events and issues. Conscientious journalists from all media and specialties strive to serve the public with thoroughness and honesty. Professional integrity is the cornerstone of a journalist’s credibility.”

It is not “the job” of “the press” to be oppositional or propositional.

So, again I ask, can anyone possibly argue the validity of President Trump’s statement?  Can anyone possibly argue the correctness of President Trump’s statement?

Apparently it is “the press” itself who is ready to argue The President’s point.

Again, President Trump commented “The United States is a great democracy… and if the press were straight and honest, and forthright and tough, we would be a far greater nation.”

No sooner had the words left President Trump’s mouth, a male voice from somewhere in the room shouted, “We are, Mr. President!”

“A source inside the room told Fox News the person who shouted was CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta.”

anocnn 1

anocnn 5

“Trump’s retort? ‘We would be far greater when we don’t have the CNNs of the world, who are corrupt people.’”

“Trump then thanked the attendees and walked off.”

“CNN did not immediately respond to a request for comment.”

And don’t hold your breath waiting either.

anocnn 12

In this instance, it is safe to use Jim Acosta as an example of how not to behave if you aspire to be a credible journalist.

Instead of recording and reporting, we have Jim Acosta choosing to interject himself into the story.

Again…, Acosta is an example of how not to behave if you aspire to be a credible journalist.

It also seems that CNN played right along…, demonstrating exactly what The President was referring to…, and making his point for him.

WINNING!
