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 New York Times’ embarrassing double standard toward Hunter Biden just got exposed
The New York Times has entirely shredded its credibility.
The “paper of record” is simply another extension of the Democrat Party.
And The Times’ embarrassing double standard toward Hunter Biden just got exposed.
The New York Times and several other major news organizations refused to cover Hunter Biden’s use of the N-word with his $800-per-hour attorney.
If one were to make the argument that the story isn’t newsworthy, then that person would have to explain why The New York Times dedicated a Sunday feature to a 15-year-old girl’s use of the word.
“Mimi Groves was a 15 year old high school cheerleader who used the n-word in a three second Snapchat video to celebrate getting her driver’s license. When the video went viral, Groves, a Loudon County, Virginia teenager, lost her admission to the University of Tennessee, including her ability to be a cheerleader at the university. The New York Times wrote a front page article about her.”
The mainstream media allowed Hunter Biden on television to peddle his book that chronicled his debauchery, but they shielded him when it came to negative stories.
“Let me repeat this, the New York Times didn’t deem Hunter Biden’s use of the n-word to be newsworthy, but they believed a 15 year old high school girl’s use of the n-word was newsworthy. So newsworthy in fact, that they put it on the front page of their Sunday newspaper so the largest possible audience would see the story.”
Cancel culture is alive and well.
Only those who are useful to the establishment are spared.
Hunter Biden is useful because he’s Joe Biden’s son, which is why the entire corporate-controlled press and social media giants colluded to suppress the New York Post’s bombshell report on Hunter’s scandalous laptop.
This has become par for the course for institutions like The New York Times.
For example, The Times completely ignored the story of Eric Swalwell allegedly having a sexual relationship with a Chinese spy.
Somehow a member of the House Intelligence Committee having a cozy relationship with a foreign spy doesn’t rate for The Times.
The New York Times even fired long-time science writer Donald McNeil for repeating the N-word when answering a question about usage of the word.
There is no logical consistency to the Left.
Republicans and conservatives have witnessed this double standard for years, but more independents and centrists are waking up to the deception.
Institutions like The New York Times have sacrificed their credibility in service to the establishment.
The so-called “mainstream” media was just forced to admit two giant mistakes
Democrats and their Fake News Media allies have been gaslighting the American people to an unbelievable extreme.
From COVID-19 to “mostly peaceful” protests, the corporate-controlled press has stifled dissent.
But the so-called “mainstream” media was just forced to admit two giant mistakes.
The corporate-controlled media narratives around the origins of COVID-19 and escalating street violence are crumbling.
Any discussion of the lab leak theory was deemed a “far-right conspiracy” that only racist and xenophobic crackpots would seriously engage in.
However, now that “Orange Man Bad” is no longer in the White House, the so-called “mainstream” media are finally doing their jobs.
Even Dr. Anthony Fauci is admitting that the lab leak theory cannot be ruled out.
That’s putting it mildly – emails released due to a FOIA request show that Fauci and other epidemiologists thought the lab leak was a possibility over a year ago.
It took a staggering amount of propaganda to convince the world that COVID-19 originated in a wet market that didn’t sell bats and was dozens of miles away from caves where bats were in hibernation instead of in the level-four biohazard Wuhan Lab of Virology.
Only stupid people and liars would ignore such a staggering coincidence.
The media also finally accurately reported on the sharp rises in crime in many blue cities around the country.
Last year, Democrats insisted that Antifa was just an “idea” or a “myth,” as Joe Biden and Jerry Nadler posited respectively.
But ideas and myths don’t beat people in the streets and raze police precincts to the ground.
The Washington Post finally admitted:
“How bad are things downtown? ‘Over the past year,’ Portland’s Democrat Mayor Ted Wheeler told the Post, ‘the city has recorded an 85 percent decline in downtown foot traffic. The result has been economic despair and more crime.’
‘Over the spring…a mob of self-described anarchists, usually masked and dressed in black, has shattered windows at the Oregon Historical Society, at a Boys & Girls Club, at a public library, and at many small business, including some owned by Black merchants.’”
Independent journalist Andy Ngo and others have been reporting on Antifa violence for years, but the press refused to cover it.
But now that Donald Trump isn’t around to be the repository for all that is bad, Democrat leaders are finally being held to account for what’s happening in their cities.
What the Fake News Media did to cover for Antifa will make you sick
Antifa has wreaked havoc across the nation for years.
Yet, the so-called “mainstream” media has done everything they can to ignore their violence.
And what the Fake News Media just did to cover for Antifa will make you sick.
Whenever anybody on the Right goes out to protest, extremists in Antifa are likely to attack.
They bring baseball bats, explosives, and even guns to shut down these demonstrations with intense violence.
And whenever anybody calls out their violence, they themselves become a target.
Tucker Carlson was famously targeted by a mob at his home, which forced him to move in order to keep his family safe.
The Fake News Media that covered it did their best to downplay the disgusting behavior of the left-wing extremists.
But now that there is yet another case of a high-profile figure being targeted, they are simply choosing to ignore the attack all together.
Republican Rep. Nancy Mace was targeted by the extremist group at her home, where they spray-painted slogans, demands, and vulgarity all over her property.
Alongside anarchist symbols, they spray-painted “all politicians are bastards,” which is a play on their infamous “all cops are bastards” chant, along with slogans like “no gods, no masters,” and a big “f*** you Nancy” spray-painted in the street.
As for their demands, they wrote “pass the Pro Act” on her home.
The Pro Act is a bill that would prohibit employers from discouraging employees from joining unions.
While this attack should alarm all Americans, the so-called “mainstream” media largely ignored it.
According to NewsBusters, the vandalism got zero airtime on morning or evening broadcasts of ABC, CBS, and NBC, despite there being an active police investigation.
Fox News did cover the attack, and had Rep. Mace on to talk about it.
Speaking to Sean Hannity, she called the attack “jarring” and “invasive.”
“This is the home where I live. I’m a single mom and I have two kids and I’m sad for my kids because they had – they had to see this. And I’m sad for my neighbors. They didn’t ask for this to happen,” she said. “But this is a Left coming after the Right, coming after us conservatives. And earlier today, I’m conservative, first thing I did was talk to local law enforcement, got them to my house.”
If this had been vandalism on a Democrat’s home, there would be round-the-clock coverage.
But the so-called “mainstream” media doesn’t care about Republicans being targeted with such vile attacks.
