Every day it seems like Americans learn a new ugly truth about CNN.
With each bombshell it becomes harder and harder for CNN to pretend to be a news network.
And this former CNN employee just admitted something surprising to Sean Hannity.
CNN recently fired former Republican Senator Rick Santorum after Don Lemon and others at the network complained that Santorum did not properly apologize for comments Santorum made about their being a lack of native American culture when the Pilgrims settled in what became the United States.
Santorum was the only Trump-supporting voice on the network, and critics suspected that CNN did not want to upset what is left of its dwindling audience by offending their senses by having someone on the air that did not use every second of their airtime to criticize Donald Trump.
In an interview with Sean Hannity following his firing, Santorum alluded to this reality asserting that CNN firing him showed how intolerant the Left was.
“[I]n many, many cases throughout my entire career, people have been called to be fired for saying this, and fired for saying this,” Santorum stated. “And I’ve always defended their right, and say, ‘Look, people have a right to their opinion.’ And, by the way, CNN has a right to fire me. If they don’t like what I’m saying or what I’m doing, they have a right to fire me. I have no animus at all toward CNN. Like I said, I appreciate the opportunity they gave me. But I think it does show that the left is intolerant. They are worried. I’m sure their viewership, which is obviously very left — they were going to pay a price. And the intolerance of the left is really the issue here and the cancel culture that is flowing from it. And I hear from a lot of liberals — in fact, many CNN contributors who talked to me afterward who were very, very concerned about the cancel culture that is now hitting them.”
CNN essentially admitted this was true as well.
On Sunday’s episode of the hilariously misnamed Reliable Sources program, far-left university professor Nicole Hemmer – who purports to be an “expert” on the Republican Party – claimed that Santorum’s comments were not unusual for a conservative, but that CNN executives and its audience no longer had the stomach to hear opposing views.
“And in this case, too, it’s not that Rick Santorum something that was unusual for the sets of beliefs that he has, it’s just that the tolerance of CNN and its audience for those beliefs seems to have changed. And so, that I think is the most important context for what happened here,” Hemmer stated.
When Donald Trump first ran for office, CNN signed a number of Trump supporters – Jeffrey Lord, Ed Martin, Kayleigh McEnany, Parris Dennard and Rick Santorum – to contracts so viewers could hear the pro-Trump side of the argument.
With the exception of McEnany who left to join the Trump campaign and then administration, CNN fired every single pro-Trump commentator as part of a purge to create uniformly left-wing opinion and programming.

The Fake News this discredited “journalist” is now pushing will leave you hopping mad
All of American culture has been polluted by politics.
Now self-proclaimed “journalists” believe it’s fair game to just fabricate Fake News out of the blue.
And the Fake News this discredited “journalist” is now pushing will leave you hopping mad.
Self-proclaimed “journalist” Jemele Hill got run out of ESPN after her unhinged and deranged anti-Trump tweets cratered the ratings for SportsCenter, the network’s flagship program.
Hill was so ill-informed, she thought it was a good idea to promote a boycott of major companies that worked with Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones because he was against the anti-American National Anthem protests.
But she quickly learned that wasn’t the case, as many of those same companies worked with her employer, leading to her suspension, and ultimately departure from ESPN.
Hill later latched on with The Atlantic – which was going under before being rescued by The New York Times – where she was free to write nonsensical pieces about politics and culture.
Now, Hill is attacking Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) because he voted against the Respect for Marriage Act.
“Mitch McConnell voted against codifying interracial marriage even though he’s in an interracial marriage,” Hill tweeted. “That is some seriously nasty work.”

This is a common tactic used by Democrats.
They throw an issue with large support into a bad bill, then when Republicans vote against the bad bill, Democrats blast Republicans for supposedly opposing the popular aspect of the bill.
Hill either fell for the political trick, or she’s complicit in perpetrating it as a member of the Fake News Media.
No matter how you slice it, it’s wildly dishonest.
Neither Senator McConnell nor any other Republican voted against the Respect for Marriage Act because of interracial marriage.
Republicans wanted more protections to ensure that the bill would not force religious Americans, who believe that gay marriage violates their religious beliefs, from being forced to take part.
For example, Christian baker Jack Phillips has been put through hell for refusing to bake specialized cakes for both a gay wedding and a transgender celebration.
Senators Mike Lee (R-UT) and Marco Rubio (R-FL) added amendments that would protect religious Americans and institutions, but a handful of Republicans voted on the bill nonetheless.
The move makes zero political sense because neither gay marriage nor interracial marriage are under any threat, regardless of what Democrats claim – roughly 95% of Americans support interracial marriage, while over 70% support gay marriage, not exactly danger territory.
Pro-life advocate Lila Rose called out Hill’s dishonesty.
“You know that is not why he opposed the bill,” Rose replied. “This comment is very dishonest and designed for likes on the internet and virtue signaling.”
Chad O. Jackson, who was featured in the Larry Elder-produced films Uncle Tom and Uncle Tom II, responded to Hill by pointing out that her entire narrative is “predicated on a false, paranoid notion.”
“Your desire for codification is predicated on a false, paranoid notion that a substantial slice of the electorate wants it banned,” Jackson wrote to Hill. “Settle down.. Breathe… Nobody is trying to ban ‘interracial’ marriage. We just don’t believe the govt should regulate marriage in the first place.”
Hill is the one engaging in “seriously nasty work.”
Hopefully, more people have caught on to the game the Democrats are playing
The View’s Whoopi Goldberg made a jaw-dropping admission about Twitter you have to see to believe
The Left is showing their true colors in the wake of Elon Musk’s purchase of Twitter.
They cannot stand that the platform is being opened up to free speech.
And The View’s Whoopi Goldberg made a jaw-dropping admission about Twitter you have to see to believe.
Democrats remain in full-blown panic mode because they no longer control one of their favorite propaganda machines, Twitter.
Elon Musk forked over $44 billion to restore free speech on the platform, and left-wing radicals are absolutely outraged.
And The View’s Whoopi Goldberg recently made a shocking confession about Twitter.
The hosts brought on one of Democrat’s Hollywood shills, Alyssa Milano, to discuss the platform, and the actress was asked if she’ll remain on the platform.
“Yeah because we can’t cede that territory,” Milano said. “It’s like turf war now. That’s how I look at it.”
“No, no,” Goldberg replied. “Not that. There’s other ones you can come and grab, leave that to them because that is what that is meant to be now. It’s not meant to be any better than what we’re seeing.”
“If we’re not representing our side of – of the political discourse, aren’t we just saying, you know what, you can have Twitter?” Milano asked.
That’s when Goldberg revealed what the Left’s issues with a Musk-owned Twitter actually are – the Left no longer controls it.
“I’ll tell you, some things you have to walk away from until you can get the control you need of it,” Goldberg admitted. “Right now there’s no way to get this control. And so find the ones that you can get and fix and then come back and run that run over.”
That is a truly amazing statement.
Whoopi Goldberg is admitting that the Left previously had complete control over Twitter and could manipulate it as they saw fit, and now that they no longer do, they should leave until they can reclaim it.
This is the Left’s entire mentality on full display.
Decades ago, leftists began the “long march through the institutions,” and they have control of so many halls of power.
They don’t control one avenue of speech — Twitter — and they freak out.
The Left is simply not accustomed to losing in the culture war.
By the way, it should be noted that Musk is not banning any leftists, as the Left did to conservatives for years on the platform – he’s simply not banning conservatives or anyone else for ideological reasons.
The Left struggle to win arguments on a level playing field because so much of what they believe is based on lies.
Unfortunately for left-wing radicals, Twitter was a first mover in the social media space, so it’s going to be incredibly difficult for the Left to build a platform with comparable reach and influence.
CNN’s latest COVID propaganda campaign is just as infuriating as you’d imagine
For all intents and purposes, COVID is over.
But the corporate-controlled press hasn’t received the memo apparently.
And CNN’s latest COVID propaganda campaign is just as infuriating as you’d imagine.
The COVID regime is still trying to milk the pandemic for all its worth.
Corporate-controlled media outlets love to sell panic, and after getting the taste of power that comes with it, politicians and so-called public health “experts” do not want to give up.
For that reason, the COVID regime is sending mixed signals about the coronavirus.
For example, President Joe Biden previously deemed the pandemic “over,” but then walked that back to push for every American to continue receiving booster shots indefinitely.
And for their part, Fake News outlets like CNN are still telling people to wear a mask in order to protect against COVID.
— Tom Elliott (@tomselliott) November 28, 2022
There have been numerous studies that show masks are essentially useless against COVID – if worn properly, N95 masks can provide some protection, but most people are not wearing them, and those who do are not wearing them correctly over long periods of time.
People mainly wear cloth masks, which CNN medical expert Dr. Leana Wen has admitted are nothing more than “facial decorations.”
World leaders, as well as many corporate and Silicon Valley titans, have admitted that a Chinese Communist Party-style of governance is the model that the western elites want to adopt.
Former President Barack Obama and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau are just two examples of world leaders who have complained that they do not have the power of the CCP.
Communist China has lied about its number of COVID deaths from the beginning, and their authoritarian government continues to implement draconian lockdowns, and throw “infected” citizens in outright concentration camps, nearly three years after the outbreak.
The Communist Party’s goons have welded Chinese citizens inside buildings, which has led to horrific tragedies, like in Xinjiang Province where at least ten people were burned alive because they could not escape the building they were welded inside in the name of “public health.”
Despite determining that the pandemic is “over,” President Biden has also kept his unconstitutional vaccine mandate in place for federal employees.
If not for a conservative-leaning Supreme Court, Biden’s unconstitutional mandate would have been forced on the millions of Americans who work for a company with at least 50 employees.
Universities and government schools in various jurisdictions are also requiring students to be fully vaccinated and boosted.
This is the biggest windfall in history for Big Pharma, and the companies are taking full advantage.
That’s why cable news networks, like CNN, continue to relentlessly push masks and vaccines and boosters while companies like Pfizer pay them millions of dollars in “advertising.”
The establishment elitists want COVID to last forever.
