A judge just smacked CNN with this massive courtroom defeat

Published

CNN is facing a lawsuit that could cost the network hundreds of millions of dollars.

And CNN got some bad news.

That’s because a judge just smacked CNN with this massive courtroom defeat.

U.S. District Court Raag Singhal allowed Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz’s $300 million lawsuit against CNN for misrepresenting his comments during Donald Trump’s first impeachment trial.

Newsmax reports:

Legal scholar Alan Dershowitz’s defamation lawsuit against CNN over its coverage of former President Donald Trump’s impeachment trial can continue after a judge refused the network’s motion to dismiss.

Dershowitz alleged CNN provided an edited version of his remarks and a misleading narrative about his views that damaged his reputation as a scholar. He’s seeking $300 million in damages, the Hollywood Reporter said Tuesday.

Dershowitz sued CNN claiming commentators Joe Lockhart and Paul Begala misrepresented his comments defending President Trump.

In response to Texas Senator Ted Cruz’s question about Donald Trump believing his re-election was in the public interest, Dershowitz agreed and said all public officials believed that, which meant Trump was not asking for a quid pro quo when he requested the Ukrainian President help uncover corrupt acts committed by Joe and Hunter Biden in Ukraine.

But Dershowitz added that a corrupt motive would make a quid pro quo illegal.

“Every public official that I know believes that his election is in the public interest and, mostly you are right, your election is in the public interest, and if a President does something which he believes will help him get elected in the public interest, that cannot be the kind of quid pro quo that results in impeachment,” Dershowitz declared.

Lockhart claimed Dershowitz declared the President had a “license to commit crimes.”

“The Dershowitz Doctrine would make Presidents immune from every criminal act, so long as they could plausibly claim they did it to boost their re-election effort,” Begala added. “Campaign finance laws: out the window. Bribery statutes: gone. Extortion: no more.”

CNN claimed the lawsuit was baseless because the network was protected by the fair report privilege, which allows the media to report on government proceedings without fear of lawsuits.

Judge Singhal disagreed and cited the fact that CNN edited Dershowitz’s remarks.

“CNN presented an abridgment of Dershowitz’ answer to Senator Cruz'[s] question,” Singhal ruled. “The abridgment is not accurate, to the extent that it omitted a crucial qualification: that an illegal motive for a quid pro quo would be corrupt.

“As a result, the commentators’ statements – that Dershowitz believes a President can do anything, even commit crimes if it would help his re-election – are not based upon a fair and accurate summary of Dershowitz’ statement to the Senate,” Singhal added.

Donald Trump scored one piece of revenge on CNN that will make you smile

Published

CNN spent four years waging war against Donald Trump.

Executives, reporters, and hosts at the left-wing network thought they emerged victorious when Trump left office.

But Donald Trump scored one piece of revenge on CNN that will make you smile.

For four years, CNN rode the sugar high of Donald Trump’s ascent to record ratings.

CNN peaked in January when the liberal channel briefly dislodged Fox News as the top rated cable news network.

For 24 hours a day and seven days a week CNN whipped up liberals Americans into a panic with breathless coverage of everything Trump did in order to manufacture scandal and fear to keep viewers hooked.

When Trump left Washington, D. that all changed.

By March, CNN lost nearly 70 percent of its primetime audience.

One program that symbolizes CNN’s fall is the morning show New Day hosted by radical left-wing activists John Berman and Brianna Keilar.

New Day is averaging less than 500,000 viewers a day for the week of May 28 to June 4.

Fox News reports:

CNN’s recently revamped morning show “New Day” continues to embarrass the struggling liberal network and has now failed to draw 500,000 viewers for six consecutive weeks while setting a yearly low among viewers in a key age demographic.

“New Day” averaged only 470,000 viewers from May 31 through June 4, which was actually a slight improvement from the yearly low of 460,000 it averaged the week prior. But both numbers are remarkably low for a major network’s flagship morning program, as “Fox & Friends” averaged 1.14 million viewers and MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” averaged 891,000 last week.

“New Day” finished the week as the No. 42 program in cable news, behind a variety of programs with less desirable timeslots.

New Day is a cookie cutter liberal show where Keilar and Berman play to their dwindling liberal audience by attacking Republicans and praising Joe Biden.

But without Donald Trump in office, the pitch is falling flat.

CNN’s tried to reverse this trend by claiming Donald Trump is leading an assault on democracy in exile in hopes of winning back the viewers.

However, as New Day’s sagging ratings demonstrate, the dirty secret of the last four years is that as much as CNN and other liberal media outlets hated Donald Trump they also depend on him for their financial well being.

A CNN star caught on camera in an ugly sex act had this mind-blowing response

Published

CNN can’t go one day without embarrassing itself.

But this latest fiasco takes the cake.

A CNN star caught on camera in an ugly sex act had this mind-blowing response.

Last fall, CNN suspended legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin after Toobin was caught masturbating on a zoom call with his colleagues from The New Yorker.

The New Yorker fired Toobin.

But CNN shunted Toobin off to the side in the hopes the scandal would subside.

CNN network boss Jeff Zucker decided eight months was enough time in the penalty box and brought Toobin back on the air for a cringe worthy interview with anchor Alisyn Camerota.

Camerota confronted Toobin about being caught masturbating on a webcam and Toobin claimed he thought he turned off the zoom call.

“Well, obviously, I wasn’t thinking very well or very much. And it was something that was inexplicable to me. I think one point and I wouldn’t exactly say in my defense, because nothing is really in my defense and I didn’t think I was on the call. I didn’t think other people could see me,” Toobin stated.

Camerota could not believe Toobin could be so stupid and asked if that was really what happened.

But Toobin said that is exactly what happened.

“Correct. I thought that I had turned off the zoom call. Now, that’s not a defense. This was deeply moronic and indefensible. But that is part of the story. I have spent the seven subsequent months, miserable months in my life, I can certainly confess, trying to be a better person. I’m in therapy, trying to do some public service, working in a food bank, which I’m certainly going to continue to do, working on a new book about the Oklahoma City bombing. I am trying to become the kind of person that people can trust again,” Toobin responded.

The tag line on CNN’s promos used to be “This is CNN.”

By bringing back a public masturbator, CNN is now telling viewers “This is CNN.”

A Republican shut down one left-wing CNN host with this truth about Critical Race Theory

Published

Parents across the country are starting to take a stand against Critical Race Theory.

Everyone on the Left is furious.

And a Republican shut down one left-wing CNN host with this truth about Critical Race Theory.

CNN host Victor Blackwell interviewed Texas Republican Steve Toth about Toth’s bill to ban the Marxist Critical Race Theory from being taught in the state’s schools.

Toth explained it was important to prevent racist curriculum from teaching students to hate America and themselves.

“Critical race theory is not about not teaching the egregious things that happened in the past. Critical race theory is about blaming children today in the classroom for things that happened in the [past]. Years ago, we said stereotyping, racial profiling, we said that was the wrong thing, and yet that’s what is being taught in our classroom,” Toth explained.

Toth then held up a book Not My Idea: A Book About Whiteness as an example of the type of lesson plans that should not be taught in school.

Blackwell then quoted Toth’s bill.

“A teacher may not be compelled to discuss a particular current event or widely debated or current controversial issue of public policy or social affairs,” Blackwell stated and asked what that meant.

Toth explained that all the bill said is that a teacher “can’t be compelled to teach it from a leftist point of view” and that all lessons should include a “diverse and contending perspective without showing to deference any one perspective.”

The Texas Republican blasted Blackwell for claiming every teacher must only instruct students from the left-wing perspective of CNN.

“But that’s not good enough for you,” Toth declared. “As you question me right now, you’re trying to make it sound like teachers have to do this from one perspective and one perspective only . . . I don’t care what CNN thinks and I don’t care what you think about my bill! It doesn’t matter to me! You’re not going to do this from a non-biased perspective. You have a bias!”

Critical Race Theory is becoming a flash point in America.

Parents are fed up with left-wing teachers brainwashing their children to hate America and resent other people because of their races.

And that is causing liberal anchors like Victor Blackwell at CNN to lose their minds.
