Whatever your opinion of Trump, and ours is that he is a mixed bag, good on some things, not so good on others, I think it can be objectively said that the #oldmedia has been on a Trump hunt since the day Trump won the election. (And before.) The people in the #oldmedia hate the man. They hate that he won even though the #oldmedia backed Hillary Clinton. They hate that he derailed the march toward the “first woman president.”
This is hilarious. It was the establishment spinmeisters and the #oldmedia like CNN that originally tried to spread the term “fake news” in an effort to disparage Breitbart and other #newmedia sources. And now Cuomo has a problem with the term. Boo hoo. It got turned around on him and now he’s whining.
Well let’s just review a little clip from Cuomo’s show so that we can all remember why so many Americans feel that CNN wantonly engages in acts of “fake news.”
CNN has been pushing its luck. It basically was all in for Hillary in the election and then post election it went all in against Trump. I’m not surprised that the administration made this decision. And really, it is CNN that made the decision.
Now this doesn’t mean CNN can’t cover the White House of course. It just means that it has lost its preferred membership card.
Sorry CNN you can go hang out with BuzzFeed and The Philadelphia Inquirer.
This whole Russia thing has been truly bizarre. I’ve been following it tick by tick since the beginning and I’ve yet to see what Russia actually did. (Not that we think it’s beyond Putin to do something.) And now this silliness from CNN and Buzzfeed? This is ridiculous. Sorry Mr. Podesta, but somebody on your side probably spilled the beans. (Not that we know anything special.) Deal. You lost. At this point your crew is just hurting the country.
“Oh no…That sucks…”
We (still) have a 1st Amendment in this country Mr. Cuomo. Thank God.
This reporter I am guessing wouldn’t get in the face of Hilary Clinton like that I am sure. And the hostile finger pointing is just not OK. But I have little doubt that this is what the producers at CNN wanted.
So as we have just learned, Judy Woodruff, PBS anchor and recent Democratic debate moderator gave to the Clinton Foundation, something which in our opinion should have disqualified her for the moderator job.
Co-moderator Judy Woodruff happens to be a donor to the Clinton Foundation, and faced criticism from the PBS ombudsman in 2015 for giving to the Clintons.
Woodruff is one of several journalists who has contributed to the Clinton Foundation,
This report comes from Mediaite, which is not exactly a conservative news outlet.
Look, the legacy media, the #oldmedia, have an agenda. It is basically statist with a strong deference to corporate masters. Begala is that kind of guy.
Actually Dr. Gupta doesn’t seem confused at all. In fact he seems to be very aware of the risks associated with close contact and Ebola transmission. The head of the CDC however seems less sure. The Director does however continue to smile reassuringly at the camera as he explains that in fact (contrary to what he just said) perhaps being within 3 feet of a coughing Ebola victim isn’t actually a good idea.
Beware the “pretense of knowledge.”
I’ll bet that’ll be a fun return.
On the surface this ruling sounds like a win for “workers,” but sadly it’s not. If the government can keep businesses from firing people, indeed in this case force CNN to REHIRE fired workers, businesses will simply choose not to hire new people.
