CNN could face fines after allowing this 2020 Democrat to use one word on live TV



Things are only getting worse and worse for CNN.

With their viewership declining rapidly, they continue to have to lay off employees.

And now CNN could face fines after allowing this 2020 Democrat to use one word on live TV.

There may be no network that hates President Donald Trump more than CNN.

Since the day Trump announced his candidacy, CNN has made their intense opposition clear.

That’s why Trump has fought back, pointing out just how biased their coverage is.

And despite their denials, CNN continues to prove Trump right.

On a recent broadcast, CNN allowed 2020 Democrat presidential candidate Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke to use the “F” word, without it being censored.

CNN’s Dana Bash didn’t even challenge him after using a word that FCC regulations forbid.

NewsBusters reports:

O’Rourke was a guest on CNN’s State of the Union this morning. Guest host Dana Bash began by playing a clip in which O’Rourke, addressing a campaign gathering yesterday regarding the shootings in Texas, called the situation “f—ed up.” CNN bleeped out the vulgarity. But when Bash invited O’Rourke to comment on the situation live in the studio, he again spoke of it being “f—ed up,” and this time, CNN didn’t bleep it.

Does CNN lack a seven-second delay, or did the network make a conscious decision to air O’Rourke’s coarse language? Surely the producers should have been on their toes, given that O’Rourke had used the same expression in the clip that was played just before Bash put the question to him live. But then, this is the same network that said “S–thole” 195 times in one day to own Trump.

It is very likely CNN will face fines from the FCC over this incident.

All it will take is a complaint from a viewer to start an investigation.

While it may have been a mistake for the word to air uncensored, the bigger point of the matter is that they didn’t even challenge him.

If it had been a Republican or Donald Trump doing something similar, CNN would certainly call them out on it.

Do you think CNN is biased against Republicans?

    As far as I am concerned, CNN could be taken off the air. I seldom watch anything they air, and they don’t promote both sides of the news. FOX news is much better. And I think that Chris Cuomo is a major liability for their channel.

    CNN, the most biased of all the others….
    “CNN said Monday that three journalists, including the executive editor in charge of a new investigative unit, have resigned after the publication of a Russia-related article that was retracted,” reported CNN’s Brian Stelter. “Thomas Frank, who wrote the story in question; Eric Lichtblau, an editor in the unit; and Lex Haris, who oversaw the unit, have all left CNN.”
    “Kathy Griffin, host of CNN New Year’s Eve special lost her contract after she published a photograph in which she appeared to be holding a likeness of the President’s severed head.
    “CNN severed ties with host Reza Aslan after he tweeted a series of vulgar posts about Mr. Trump. And another story that inaccurately predicted the congressional testimony of James B. Comey was retracted.”
    “Semi-automatic weapons-CNN apologized for a May 15, 2003, story in which CNN’s John Zarella and Broward County, Florida Sheriff Ken Jenne demonstrated the rapid firing of fully automatic firearms while covering the federal Assault Weapons Ban, due to expire the following year. The Assault Weapons Ban was concerned solely with semi-automatic firearms, not fully automatic ones, which had already been restricted by the National Firearms Act of 1934, and the subsequent 1986 Firearm Owners Protection Act.[10][11]”
    “On April 3, 2016, hundreds of supporters of Bernie Sanders protested outside of CNN Los Angeles. Sanders supporters were protesting CNN’s coverage of the 2016 United States presidential elections, specifically in regards to the lack of airtime Sanders has received. Known as Occupy CNN, protesters claimed that major media networks have intentionally blacked out Sanders’ presidential campaign in favor of giving much more airtime to candidates such as Hillary Clinton.[12]”
    “In a disastrous interview this week, CNN analyst Areva Martin accused Sirius XM and Fox Nation host David Webb of benefiting from “white privilege,” but she failed to realize that he’s black.”
    “CNN’s Brian Stelter recently said, “We don’t see CNN or the New York Times rooting for any president, whether a Democrat or Republican.”…..In October 2016, the head of the DNC and former CNN contributor Donna Brazile was caught giving Hillary Clinton debate questions she received from the network.”
    “Another example of direct support for Hillary Clinton from the globalist media network can be seen in a clip where CNN anchor Chris Cuomo says, “we couldn’t help her any more than we have.”
    “CNN once put a glowing gold filter over a video of Hillary Clinton to portray her as a glowing angel of light.”
    “The network claimed Hillary Clinton won a presidential debate, but they were called out for using a weighted survey that sampled 41 percent Democrats compared to 26 percent Republicans.”
    “CNN blatantly cut off a reporter who dared to point out how hypocritical it is for Hillary Clinton to pretend to care about the black community after her and her husband helped shape the laws that put so many minorities in prison.”

    I have not watched the Communist News Network for many years. They’ve always been bias and their reporting has always lacked true, investigative reporting. I guess one cannot expect anything else from a Soros news network.

    I like FOXNews and One America News (OAN) the best. I can do without all of the others.

    Don’t watch CNN and never will.. Only find out the disgusting lies they tell by internet quotes I read. They are doomed and doubt they will be on air much longer. Bunch of lying low life scum. Beto is a loud mouthed lunatic that seriously needs to see a shrink.


    September 4, 2019 at 10:39 pm

    the communist nasty nutworks should not be on cable as a news outlet .they have no connection to truth or news. they are nothing but a communist bullcrap outlet for the demon-rat party. anti-american anti trump and anti-god. PURE GARBAGE.

    fully automatic ones, which had already been restricted by the National Firearms Act of 1934, and the subsequent 1986 Firearm Owners Protection Act.[10][11]”

    I often wonder why Democrats and RINO’s can’t check out existing laws before they propose duplicate laws. It wouldn’t be that difficult since they have large staffs available to do the research. It gets down to “let’s do something, even if it’s wrong” just to appear to be dealing with the issue. We’re living in upside down stupid times.

    I believe that CNN and Orourke should face a heavy fine. If a Republiian would have used that word , they would have already been fined. Double standards again. I don use that word nor do I like hearing it. If orourke would use t6hatword in front of my wife , he would have a massive head ache,

    They say that you’re intelligence is measured by you vocabulary, Benzene and CNN have it all.
    OANN, Newsmax or FOX for news. Don L. From CNN said that OANN has low ratings and small audience, was corrected by the guest as moving up fast. OANN which Trump praised as good reporting.

    This is coming from CNN the leader in low viewer ratings

    Chris Cuomo thinks he’s so important and untouchable because Gov. Cuomo of NY is his brother, and Chris Cuomo is good friends with the President of CNN. CNN should be taken off the air. They have a lousy bunch of anchors who are not reporters and they don’t do a thing everyday, but sit there and try to bash the President of the United States. They’re a disgrace and the hammer should come down on them permanently.

    of course it was intentional if not it would have never gone thru . the person saying the F word should be gone from ALL TV stations and the host should be fired , host let it go course that is just the way CNN is . yes if Trump would say that the world would have come to an end and we would never here the end of it .CNN so fake news and not worthy of even having a station on the air . the feds should block them on the air for at least one month and have training for all of their staff before going back on the air

    “Is CNN biased against Republicans?” Silly question- -of course they are; add to that biased against anything American, or Constitutional. Why do you think they are alternately called “communist news network”, or clinton news network?

I love these big companies idea of cut back, just kick lower pay workers to the street and never and across the board pay check cut back.

Jim Acosta just made one mistake that has Trump seeing red



Fake news CNN’s Chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta is no stranger to being in the spotlight.

He has made a career out of attacking Trump on national television.

But now Jim Acosta made one mistake that has Trump seeing red.

President Trump has been proactive during the outbreak of the coronavirus, giving the American people daily briefings so they can stay up-to-date with accurate information on what the government is doing to fight the virus.

This is increasingly important for Trump to do while the Fake News Media is spending all of their time fear mongering and using the pandemic to play political games and attacking Trump.

During Trump’s recent briefing, he asked Dr. Deborah Birx to establish a timeline of events for the coronavirus pandemic.

Dr. Birx has been able to provide real information about what is happening with the coronavirus and she began her time by reassuring Americans that what the Trump administration is doing to fight the virus is working.

She continued, “I will remind you that on February 3rd, the head of the WHO said there was no reason to ever do a travel ban. It wasn’t until January 14th that we knew that there was human-to-human transmission . . .”

But Dr. Birx was interrupted by CNN’s Jim Acosta who shouted, “Dr. Birx, the president was saying this was going to go away. It’s April.”

President Trump was furious Acosta had flat-out interrupted Dr. Birx mid-sentence and stepped in to say, “It is going away. I said it was going away and it is going away.”

Following Acosta’s obscene behavior, Constitutional law professor Jonathan Turley blasted Acosta in a tweet that identified a “press pandemic” in America.

Many Americans think Acosta crossed a line interrupting Dr. Birx.

Turley’s criticism is fair when looking at what fake news CNN and the rest of the media elites have been doing since the outbreak of coronavirus in the U.S.

They have done nothing but fear-monger to Americans, and now that they have the country hyperventilating around the clock, they are playing politics to attack President Trump.

Do you agree with Jonathan Turley? Does America have a “press pandemic” from fake news CNN and media elites spreading fear and playing politics instead of delivering facts and information?

Ted Cruz shut down The Washington Post with one massive reality check



The Fake News Media once again failed American during the coronavirus outbreak.

So called journalists popped champagne corks over the ability to blame President Trump for the Chinese virus.

And Ted Cruz just shut down The Washington Post with one massive reality check.

The media is celebrating every bit of bad economic news that rolls in as the government lockdown to combat the coronavirus sends millions to the unemployment line.

Washington Post “fact checker” Glen Kessler relished the idea of the economy – which Donald Trump regularly touted – turning sour and being a weak point in the re-election campaign.

Kessler wrote, “Line from Trump’s State of the Union address that did not age well: ‘Incredibly, the average unemployment rate under my administration is lower than any administration in the history of our country.’”

Ted Cruz slammed Kessler in a tweet by pointing out that the fake news hated the fact that President Trump oversaw an historic economic boom and now did back flips over a once in a century pandemic that deprived the President of this talking point.

This pandemic is showing just how much many journalists root against the country and hope the bottom falls out just because they hate President Trump.

So-called “journalists” are pulling off their masks and revealing that they are Democrats first and Americans second.

Pants on Fire News will keep you up-to-date on any new developments in this ongoing story.

CNN’s Jake Tapper flat-out refused to correct AOC when she was caught in this outrageous lie



Members of Congress used to be known for only lying to their constituents back home.

And the media was once known as “the arbiter of truth” and an institution of trust and respect.

But that has all changed and now CNN’s Jake Tapper flat-out refused to correct AOC when she was caught in this outrageous lie.

CNN’s Jake Tapper has gone from being considered by some as a respected, impartial journalist to just another left-wing hack who can lie and promote the Left’s with the best of them.

Tapper recently admitted that he allowed Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) to blatantly lie about President Trump during a recent interview.

AOC said during the interview, “The beds and the capacity that we need in this country. And we’re hearing it every step of the way from this administration. First, we were hearing that it’s a hoax, then we were hearing that everything was fine.”

This all stemmed from earlier false press reports claiming the President called coronavirus a hoax. The claims were quickly disproven and even corrected by most news outlets.

But clearly not by CNN.

Tapper later even admitted he knew it was a lie from AOC, but chose not to say anything.

“I thought about it, because the president did not call the virus a hoax.” Tapper said.

Tapper went further in trying to deflect from the Congresswoman’s lie by simply accusing the president of being a liar.

“I guess that’s the problem with a politician who lies so often. While I agree that Democrats are mischaracterizing what he said, what he did say was also false so it’s tough to justify taking the time for a fact check when it’s not taking a stand defining the truth,” Jake added.

So, in other words, because Tapper doesn’t like the president and personally believes Donald Trump lies often, he decided not to correct a blatant lie on his show.

This disregard for the truth is so widespread by the media now, Tapper’s decision didn’t receive much coverage.

There was a time not so long ago when ploys like this would have cost a reporter his job.

But we have moved far past that time in history.

The Trump era may go down in history as the time that journalism died its last death.
