CNN: Everything but the News

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

What is strange about CNN is neither the incompetence nor the bias, but its sanctimoniousness and cluelessness about its own suicidal trajectory into oblivion. When Donald Trump at his rallies points to the media cameras and hoots, “Fake news,” often directly referencing CNN, many claim that his antics are a crude attack on the press that has repeatedly lied to destroy Trump, his family, and his presidency. Perhaps. But the better question is whether CNN is any longer a media organization at all, or a failing entertainment channel, or a boring Orwellian Ministry of “Truth.”

Yes, Google Is Trying To Control The 2020 Election

Google whistleblower Zachary Vorhies started collecting internal documents from the company because he saw something dark and nefarious going on with Google and he realized that they were going to not only tamper with the elections, but use that tampering with the elections to essentially overthrow the United States.

The Weirdness Of Lefty Tough Guys

One of the truly weird features of the modern Left, especially its major political candidates and media figures, is the propensity to utter physical threats against President Trump, his supporters and others on the Right. The strangest recent example of this testosterone-fueled Leftism was an altercation between CNN anchor Chris Cuomo and a person who approached him and referred to him as “Fredo” Cuomo.

Leftwing Media Glorify ANTIFA And Terrorist Who Firebombed ICE Facility

The difficulty in learning more about Willem Van Spronsen, the ANTIFA terrorist who attacked the ICE facility in Tacoma, Washington should really surprise no one, given that CNN and other Leftwing media have a record of supporting and even glorifying ANTIFA, including airing a favorable program in which ANTIFA terrorist Willem Van Spronsen appeared.

CNN Officially Out Of Investigative Journalism

Given CNN's history of biased coverage of President Trump, it seems clear to us that, based on the results of the numerous studies the MRC has conducted on the network, CNN long ago got out of the investigative journalism field, it has just taken Jeff Zucker all this time to admit it.

Mo Brooks Was Right About Nazis, Socialists And Democrats

The “big lie” became a hallmark the Democratic Party’s modus operandi a long time ago, think of the many false campaigns against Republicans based on pushing Grandma over the cliff by taking away her Social Security. If Democrats don’t like being compared to National Socialists perhaps it is time for them to look in the mirror and check to see if they see one staring back at them.

A History Lesson For Jeb Bush

As we see it, Jeb Bush’s claim that he wants a primary to spark “a conversation about what it is to be a conservative…” is nothing more than a cover story to justify a scorched earth primary campaign against Donald Trump that would only advantage the Democrats and jeopardize all the conservative successes of Trump’s first term.

‘Bout Time: Trump Budget Defunds Corporation For Public Broadcasting

Why should taxpayers, who have to go to the bottom of the dial or the 800s on their cable box to find conservative commentary, gospel music, a show about fishing, or a John Wayne movie be forced to subsidize content that caters to a narrow elite that despises them?

Lies From The Left: The Covington Catholic Kids

From our perspective, none of the lies spread about the Covington Catholic kids spread by accident because the media business of today is not driven by an unbiased desire to report the truth, rather it is driven by the desire to mold public opinion according to Leftist narratives. And key to molding public opinion is establishing moral superiority.

What's Really Behind the Jim Acosta 'Controversy'?

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

The superficial characteristic of the Jim Acosta "controversy" is that the recently banned -- actually just his "hard pass" was taken -- CNN White House correspondent is a boring narcissist who wants to make all press conferences about him. He never asks a real question. He just spouts his utterly predictable and tedious opinions as long as he can before asking the political equivalent of "When did you stop beating your wife?" Completely lost in this charade is the American public that learns absolutely nothing from these cage fights... er, press conferences.

Conservative Leaders React to CNN's Publicity Stunt Lawsuit Against the White House

NewsBusters Staff

After Media Research Center President Brent Bozell spoke out about CNN's "ridiculous" lawsuit against the White House, the Media Research Center reached out to conservative leaders around the nation. These leaders responded with frustration at CNN’s dramatic publicity stunt. Acosta crossed a line in civility and the White House is justified to revoke his press pass. The fact that CNN issued a lawsuit only reaffirms that their network is a “hit squad” for the Left. Conservative leaders issued statements of their own.

Trump Raises the Stakes With CNN

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

CNN says that if Trump succeeds in pulling Acosta’s press pass, it could have a “chilling” effect on other White House correspondents. But if it has a chilling effect on journalists who relish confronting the president and reaping the cheers, publicity and benefits that go with being a leader of the adversary press, why is that a problem? The White House should set down rules of conduct for reporters in the briefing room, and if reporters repeatedly violate them, that should cost them their chairs and, in cases like Acosta’s, their credentials.

6 Reasons the CNN-Acosta Lawsuit Is Lame

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

The president has a right to call on reporters and ignore reporters; he has the right to hold a press conference or not hold one. Former President George W. Bush never took questions from CNN's Dan Rather. President Obama never consented to questions from Fox News' Sean Hannity. Trump could give Acosta his pass back and then try to ignore his question. But everyone knows that whether Acosta's called on or not, he's going to yell and yell. Neither his bosses nor his colleagues ever think it's time for him to sit down and shut up.

Lemon's animosity toward Trump alienates everyday Americans

Larry O'Connor, Washington Times

Don Lemon has used his platform for blistering monologues and biased panel discussions that often conclude with Mr. Lemon chastising or even yelling at one of his guests who attempt to speak on behalf of Mr. Trump or his supporters. If you support Mr. Trump, his show is completely unwatchable. And that’s the point. CNN has clearly decided that they don’t want Trump supporters watching. They believe they’re doing just fine without you, thank you very much. But if a network’s entire brand is defined by being anti-Trump, what exactly are you once he is no longer president? Most of us will never know because we will have already made a habit out of not watching.

CNN’s Existential War With Trump

Victor Davis Hanson, American Greatness

The names of those who have abused the journalistic ethos and the regrettable failure of CNN to uphold media standards are a matter of record. The best way to stop the chronic Trump attacks on the veracity of CNN is not to unleash a rude and boisterous Acosta to argue endlessly with Sarah Huckabee Sanders, but simply to ensure that CNN news reports are fact-checked and not in need of retractions or firings, that CNN hosts, contributors, and anchors do not stoop to profanity, scatology, racism, and ahistorical comparisons to Stalin and Hitler, and that CNN’s staff and hosts do not joke about the president being killed through plane crashes and decapitation.

Everything Is Trump’s Fault Is Fake News At Its Worst

The establishment media continues to be befuddled by their falling market share and polls that say Americans don’t trust them anymore. They need look no further than these three stories from the past week and the false narratives they promote for the answer to their problems of loss of trust and market share.

Fake Bombs -- Fake News

Strange is how the bombs seem to be addressed to people who don’t open their own mail, was this an elaborate plot to kill George Soros’ butler or get the mail room clerk at CNN? At this point in the investigation we don’t know who is responsible or what their motives are – all we can do is wait for law enforcement to do their work and for the evidence to reveal the perpetrator.

If You Want To Know Why Conservatives Don’t Trust Media, Watch CNN

David Harsanyi, The Federalist

It’s one thing to deny the embedded bias of political media—the left-ideological framing, skewed focus, and prejudiced coverage that’s forced conservatives to consume news through a filter for decades—and it’s another to ignore a bias that’s transforming into unethical advocacy. Suspicion of the media was restive among conservatives long before Trump and Fox News exploited it. There will always be those who distrust any news that fails to confirm their worldview. But Trump’s “fake news” hyperbole has currency with many Americans because the political media too often lives up to their worst expectations.

Censorship: The Dark Heart Of The Democratic Party

Democrats demanding the “deplatforming” of those whose opinions they don’t like is the 21st century equivalent of pressuring papermakers to stop selling newsprint to newspapers that criticize the King and it gives voters a deep look into the dark, totalitarian heart of the new “progressive” Democratic Party.

CNN Host Proclaims 'National Emergency'

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

Most Americans would suggest that the Dow Jones Industrial Average being up 5,000 points since President Trump's inauguration and the unemployment rate being 3.8 percent is not a national emergency. But then again, most Americans aren't journalists. Our media have shunned any notion of objectivity under Trump. Activists like Brian Stelter keep urging top editors to oppose, rebel and resist, and they wonder why their own approval ratings continue to sink lower, and lower, and lower.
