As the fight between Real and Fake News, Alt-Right and Alt-Left, Conservative, Liberal, and Progressive-Socialism continues to grow, CNN is fighting for their very existence as their numbers continue to plummet. CNN over the years was one of the most prominent news networks with the name ‘The Most Trusted Name In News,’ but that trust has withered and faded over the past few years, and for obvious reasons.
In 2016, CNN came under fire when it was revealed that Donna Brazile, a CNN commentator who worked for the network was feeding questions to Hillary Clinton during the Democratic primary and during the Presidential debate with Donald Trump. An act that she denied, until unquestionable proof surfaced that verified her wrongdoing. However, in a Time magazine interview, Donna Brazile finally admitted its validity.
Brazile released the following statement:
“[I]n October, a subsequent release of emails revealed that among the many things I did in my role as a Democratic operative and [Democratic National Committee] Vice Chair prior to assuming the interim D.N.C. Chair position was to share potential town hall topics with the Clinton campaign.”
“My job was to make all our Democratic candidates look good, and I worked closely with both campaigns to make that happen,” she said. “But sending those emails was a mistake I will forever regret.”
In the end, with blatant bias and dishonesty, combined with public outrage, CNN was left with no other option than to ask for her resignation, in an attempt to save face.
However, the problem stemmed much deeper than just one journalist.
CNN anchors and writers have continually attacked the President in a barrage of insults, and false or misleading accusations since the 2016 Presidential campaign.
Anti-Trump CNN Headlines include:
As most American’s already know, CNN has not been fond of President Trump, but opinion and ideology is supposed to be separate from news reporting. Even more troubling is the Anti-Trump reporting on the Russia investigation. CNN continues to make it sound as if there is plenty of evidence showing Trump/Russia collusion, but the fail to provide any evidence. Then, Project Veritas released an undercover video showing CNN’s most prominent reporter exposed the truth behind their FAKE NEWS narrative. The undercover reporter asked Van Jones, “What do you think is going to happen this week with the whole Russia thing?” Jones’ response was to shrug and say, “The Russia thing is just a big nothingburger.” Van Jones is the same CNN reporter that called President Trump’s victory “a whitelash against a changing country” and “against a black president
Van Jones told the East Bay Express in 2005 that the Rodney King verdict in April 1992 led to him becoming a communist. He told reporter Eliza Strickland,
“I was a rowdy nationalist on April 28th, and then the verdicts came down on April 29th. By August, I was a communist.” Van Jones, CNN
Jones also told Strickland that
he met some “really radical, communists and anarchists”while in jail, and that they went on to form “a socialist collective, Standing Together to Organize a Revolutionary Movement, or STORM, which held study groups on the theories of Marx and Lenin and dreamed of a multiracial socialist utopia.” Van Jones, CNN
It should beg the question of why would a self-avowed communist, who leads Marxist and Lenin based communist ideology, consider Russia an enemy? Meanwhile, he promotes marxist ideological practices, similar to the ones that were promoted by the Soviet Union (now Russia) like disarming the citizenry, promoting political correctness, censorship of opposing ideological media outlets, government control over businesses and corporations, government confiscation of private property (now in the name of environmentalism), and so forth. Meanwhile, Van Jones is pushing for un-restricted immigration to water down our pro-American electorate, prevent voter id laws that stop election fraud, re-writing of voting districts to favor Progressives, and taking control of our energy industry, so they can control ‘we the people.’ All of which, promote a future communist America. Then communist Van Jones, along with other CNN anchors, claim repeatedly that a known former communist and current pro-communist country like Russia is colluding with the Trump campaign, despite President Trump’s policies and comment’s proving that he is not a leader who is pro-Russia at all. In fact, it was Hillary Clinton who had ties to Russia, and Russian finances prior to the election. It was Hillary Clinton who sold over 20% of American Uranium to the Russians. It was the Clinton’s who took millions of dollars in payments from the Russians, and used the Clinton Foundation to funnel the money, while claiming the millions to be for speaking fees. However, despite a plethora of evidence showing the guilt of Clinton/Obama Russia Collusion, and no evidence of Trump/Russia collusion, Van Jones, and the Progressive-Socialist and Communist CNN News Network continues to ignore the Clinton-Obama ties, and pushes the Trump/Russia narrative.
Now, CNN is stepping up their war on free speech by demanding that YouTube removes non-Mainstream News sources. One such source in particular that CNN is asking for removal is Alex Jones’ Infowars.com, which is one of the most popular alternative news sites.
Andrew West on the Constitution revealed that:
“CNN is now directly lobbying for YouTube to terminate Infowars from its platform entirely, with the news network brazenly admitting as much in an article published today.
“The piece, entitled, How the Florida school shooting conspiracies sprouted and spread, notes how an Infowars video questioning whether Parkland school shooting survivor and now anti-gun activist David Hogg was being coached on what to say during interviews was removed by YouTube.”
According to the First Amendment to the Constitution of the United States, censorship of American’s voices is a blatant violation.
“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”
Therefore, Real or fake, truthful, or fictitious, censorship and silencing American’s voices is never the answer, and is UNCONSTITUTIONAL. However, CNN isn’t as concerned about following, embracing, or preserving the constitution, as much as they are about promoting their Progressive-Socialist and communist ideology on Americans. CNN has proven to be dishonest, and promoted FALSE and MISLEADING headlines, news stories, and articles. Still, censorship is not the answer, even for CNN.
Instead, CNN is becoming a victim of it’s own lies, distortions, manipulations, and anti-American agenda. According to AdWeek, CNN has taken a dive in ratings for total prime time viewers, and they didn’t even make the to ten in primetime viewers. The networks admittant pro-Communist anchors like Van Jones have barraged their viewers with anti-Trump insults like when they compared President Trump to a communist or fascist dictator. The Daily Caller reported how CNN’s Anna Navarro compared Trump to someone with Alzheimer’s.
As a result of their false research and reporting, Basic Cable Ranker from TV Newser reported on February 13th that CNN’s ratings were as follows:
Now, Vanity Fair reported
that CNN, a network that just a year ago seemed to have insurmountable ratings, is now tanking and has begun worldwide layoffs on their various platforms including CNN Money, video, product, tech and social publishing. CNN has not revealed the exact number of layoffs, and they will undergo reorganization.
CNN has been feuding with President Trump since before the 2016 election, but as CNN’s ratings have dropped drastically, President Trump has been utilizing social media to bypass biased news organizations like CNN to give him a platform to speak directly to the American people, without filters, or Mainstream Media bias. A platform that has 48.2 million followers, well more than all Mainstream Media platforms combined.
President Trump’s success is likely the reason that the Mainstream Media criticizes and tries to suppress his twitter account. Therefore, as CNN and other Progressive Mainstream Media news outlets try to maintain relevancy, they are grasping at anything they can to bring down the President, while abandoning honest journalism in favor of political activism and entertainment ratings. From Don Lemon’s ‘crying fits, taking part in election debate cheating, putting out false and misleading news for political ends and ratings, to the censorship of more than half of Americans, to scripting town hall meetings, and now attacking the Florida shooting victims for refusing to follow CNN’s pre-written scripted questions.
Now, CNN got caught pre-scripting questions for their gun-control town hall, CNN is lashing out at Colton Haab
, a student hero of the Parkland school shooting for exposing their scripted questions.
