CNN just picked Chris Cuomo’s replacement, but the real news is getting swept under the rug

Published

After months of basically admitting that nobody is better than the best talent CNN can attract, the network is finally trying to relaunch its primetime lineup.

And CNN just picked Chris Cuomo’s replacement.

But the real news is getting swept under the rug.

CNN is taking on water faster than the Titanic.

While the network created the 24/7 news cycle, CNN has turned into yet another failing corporate-controlled media outlet, slowly circling the drain into bankruptcy.

When Chris Cuomo was fired from the network in disgrace for using his position to help save his crooked brother, former New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, from a sexual assault allegations, he took a significant portion of the executive team down with him.

Now, CNN is supposedly charting a new direction under new CEO Chris Licht, cleaning up the mess that the network has become and, somehow, turning it into a legitimate news network.

Over the past several months, Licht has taken major steps to doing just that, even making clear to his incredulous staff – on multiple occasions – that they can either ditch the left-wing propaganda and act like real journalists, or seek employment elsewhere.

Such a tectonic shift at the network was spurred by the merger of CNN parent company Warner Media and Discovery, Inc. into Warner Bros. Discovery, which brought in a new board of directors that aren’t messing around.

Several months ago, Warner Bros. Discovery board member John Malone, who was the largest shareholder in Discovery prior to the merger, made clear that CNN was charting a new path.

“I would like to see CNN evolve back to the kind of journalism that it started with, and actually have journalists, which would be unique and refreshing,” Malone told CNBC.

After several months of allowing his staff to once again establish their profound level of incompetence, Licht finally took action, firing the incompetent and unethical left-wing hack, Brian Stelter.

Then he dropped the ball.

After Stelter’s exit, media industry observers assumed other unhinged leftists on staff would follow him out the door.

It looked likely when he demoted Don Lemon to a new morning show, leaving John Berman and Brianna Keilar without a time slot.

If CNN were serious about tamping down left-wing bias, the obvious move would have been to show Keilar to the door.

She’s an unapologetic left-wing extremist who spends more time slamming Fox News than attempting to report any actual news herself.

Instead, Licht has announced that Jake Tapper will be taking over the timeslot left vacant by Chris Cuomo’s firing, and quietly let Keilar slide into Tapper’s old slot.

When bragging about CNN’s new lineup, Licht was careful to avoid mentioning Keiler at all, probably in hopes it would go mostly unnoticed.

That’s certainly possible, considering how few viewers any CNN show manages to attract these days.

Much to Keilar’s irritation, Fox News has now spent 83 consecutive weeks as the most watched cable news network, according to Nielsen ratings released September 12, with an average of 1.42 million daily viewers.

Meanwhile, CNN is dragging way behind with an average of just 597,000 average daily viewers, a number that you would think would prompt Licht to get serious about cleaning up the newsroom.

But it’s clear he’s all talk and no real action.

CNN’s flimsy “evidence” for this blatantly fabricated story will leave you rolling your eyes

Published

A CNN writer seemed to be suffering from some sort of leftist, holiday hangover when he penned an article for the network’s website travel section.

Instead of lighthearted content about something relevant like taking a trip, he blatantly fabricated a story ripping into the U.S.

And his flimsy “evidence” will leave you rolling your eyes.

Whenever leftists take a break from playing the racist “equity” card, all they really have to fall back on is griping about guns.

Forrest Brown penned a clown-piece for CNN’s “unlocking the world” travel section entitled, “What travel warnings do other nation’s give their citizens about US violence?”

The idea was clearly hatched in a deranged left-wing haze, and unfortunately executed without any real logical thought getting in the way.

In the first few paragraphs, Brown continued to hint at the idea that the other nations are warning their citizens against traveling to the U.S., before eventually getting to the substance of the article — or lack thereof.

In spite of a crime wave nurtured by Marxist Black Lives Matter rioters, pro-crime defense attorneys, and the Democrats who gave rise to both, the United States remains one of the safest places in the world to travel, especially if visitors have the good sense to avoid areas where Democrats are in charge.

Of course, Brown doesn’t care about facts, and he certainly has no interest in placing the blame for anything that is going wrong on the Democrats who run the show.

Instead, Brown twisted himself into all sorts of knots worrying about whether “gun violence” is tarnishing America’s reputation abroad.

“Would-be visitors aren’t being warned off entirely as if America is an active war zone,” Brown wrote. “Each nation has its own approach. But a general theme boils down to this: The United States is more violent than what you’re used to. Learn to take precautions there that you might not have to take at home.”

He then proceeded to provide a list of countries with the greatest numbers of U.S. visitors and their advice for travelers.

He had to get all the way down to Germany — which is a socialist hot mess — before he found a satisfying level of snark.

“It is easy to obtain guns in the United States, leading to increased use of guns and occasional killing sprees,” The German Ministry of Foreign Affairs reports. “The number of arms and ammunition purchases has increased significantly during the COVID-19 crisis.”

Of course, that gratuitous political claim wasn’t backed up with anything.

The United Kingdom’s government got a lot closer to reality, noting that no matter how much left-wing radicals scream like their hair is on fire, it’s unlikely anything is going to happen to the average visitor to America.

Unless, of course, they’re inclined to hang out in any Democrat-controlled city or the southern border.

The Democrat-controlled media has egg on its face after this bombshell exposed a major left-wing lie

Published

The corporate-controlled press has been terrible in this era of Fake News.

Networks don’t even wait to get all of the facts before running with a pre-packaged narrative.

And the Democrat-controlled media has egg on its face after this bombshell exposed a major left-wing lie.

The so-called “mainstream” media did not waste any time blaming Republicans after a horrifying nightclub shooting in Colorado Springs.

Without knowing any of the details, reporters ran with one story after the other to show how conservatives and Christians were supposedly responsible for the attack on a gay nightclub.

However, the shooter’s lawyer later revealed that he identifies as nonbinary, which completely blew up the Left’s narrative.

Fox News host Tucker Carlson wasted no time holding the corporate-controlled media accountable for blaming him for the shooting once the truth was exposed.

“Do you remember when [NBC News reporter] Brandy Zadrozny told you several hundred times that the accused shooter, Anderson Lee Aldrich, was inspired by hatred for the non-binary community that he learned on this show?” Carlson asked rhetorically. “Do you remember that?”

“Well, actually, it turns out we discovered last night, that Anderson Lee Aldrich is – drum roll, please – part of the non-binary community,” he continued. “He doesn’t hate them. He is one. In a court filing, Aldrich’s lawyers wrote this: ‘Anderson Aldrich is non-binary. They use they/them pronouns and for the purposes of all formal filings, will be addressed as Mx. Aldrich.’”

Of course, the corporate-controlled press won’t correct the record.

What’s even more interesting is that the Left instantly began undercutting their own logic to explain that the shooter was not actually nonbinary, and was simply making it up.

CNN’s Alisyn Camerota had on a transgender activist who claimed they could look at the shooter’s picture and tell he is not nonbinary – so much for not assuming gender.

However, that standard would never be accepted if it were a Republican calling out the inanity of gender identity.

In reality, it’s all a power game.

The Left is attempting to control language, and ultimately thought.

People are not getting on board with the radical gender nonsense, so the propaganda and censorship have to be pushed to the extreme.

“It is all a grotesque and filthy lie,” Carlson added, ripping the Fake News Media. “It wasn’t news reporting. It turns out to have been the most transparent sort of political propaganda. And for once they have been busted flat out in public trying to sell political propaganda to an unsuspecting public under the guise of news.”

“It’s not the first time they’ve done it,” he continued. “They won’t stop doing it, but they did it a lot in this case.”

Yet again, the corporate-controlled press got a story wrong.

Jake Tapper had enough of this Democrat Congressman’s propaganda and left his in stunned silence

Published

The corporate-controlled press works hand in glove with the Democrat Party.

That’s why Democrats never expect challenging interviews.

But Jake Tapper had enough of this Democrat Congressman’s propaganda and left his in stunned silence.

CNN is in freefall.

The company cannot get out of the cable news basement, and new management is attempting to claw back even a semblance of the credibility and legitimacy CNN has lost over the years.

Jake Tapper, who failed in his shot at a primetime slot, is obviously all-in on Democrats’ radical left-wing agenda, but less so than some of his colleagues.

And Tapper raised eyebrows when he pushed back on Democrats’ claims that the Midterm elections served as a major win for the Left because Republicans’ supposed “Red Wave” didn’t occur.

“I want to ask you, though, you’re portraying a very rosy scenario about how well Democrats are doing,” Tapper told Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-LA) recently. “You just lost the House. I mean, your Party was just defeated at the House. I get that it wasn’t as bad a defeat as it could have been, but it wasn’t exactly a vote of confidence in House Democrats.”

Tapper is correct, Republicans can now stop President Joe Biden and Democrats from continuing to force their failed radical left-wing agenda on the nation, and run oversight hearings.

“Well, what I’ll say is that it was historic overperformance by every single measure, almost beyond comparison when you look at the last 100 years, when there’s a single Party in power that controls the House, the Senate, and the Presidency, in a President’s first Midterm election, the average loss of seats is 27,” Jeffries replied. “In fact, I think in 2010, in a similar scenario, we lost about 63 seats, and so obviously, it was an incredibly strong performance under very difficult circumstances.”

Democrats overperformed, but the House is still trending in the wrong direction for them.

Republicans unexpectedly picked up seats in 2020, and made further gains again in 2022.

The GOP also won the popular vote in the Midterms, gained ground with every demographic – except single women – and turned Florida from a toss-up state into a Republican stronghold.

“But you’re correct, Jake, we’re not satisfied, our top nongovernmental goal must be reclaiming the House in 2024, and I’m committed to making sure that that happens for the good of the American people,” Jeffries continued. “But if you take a step back, we held the Senate. Election deniers are on the run, have gone down in flames, have been defeated all across America, held key governorships in the heartland of America in Pennsylvania and Michigan and Wisconsin, and of course flipped state legislative bodies including in Michigan and one house in Pennsylvania, which is almost unheard of in a Midterm election.”

Rep. Jeffries is next in line to be Democrats’ leader in the House with Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) stepping down, so he’s in full posturing mode.

But that didn’t stop Tapper from calling the fact that the Congressman is really distorting reality.

“Yeah, I notice you’re not mentioning New York there because Democrats didn’t do too well in New York, and I know you said you want to get an after-action report on that,” Tapper noted.

If Democrats take 2022 as a sign they’re doing a good job, they are not reading the room correctly.
